All Day Events (9am – midnight)

Free Play Boardgames

Bring your own games and come meet a friend to play with, or come with nothing and learn a game from someone who knows it well. Playing games all day is encouraged!

Board Game Library

An extensive board game library will be available for free during the event. To check out a game, speak to a GTG member and select a game. Trade your ID for the game and play until your heart is content. When you return the game, your ID will be returned.

Family Corner (10am – 2pm)

During this time, gamers will be showing off games targeted at younger audiences. Kids ages 6+ and their parents can learn how to play some of the modern kids games together. You won’t find Pie Face! here, but rather modern board games that are designed for younger audiences.

Tournaments

Catan (2pm – 5pm)

In Catan (formerly The Settlers of Catan), players try to be the dominant force on the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what resources the island produces. Players collect these resources (cards)—wood, grain, brick, sheep, or stone—to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game.

Keyforge (8pm – 10pm)

KeyForge: Call of the Archons is the world’s first Unique Deck Game. Every single Archon Deck that you’ll use to play is truly unique and one-of-a kind, with its own Archon and its own mixture of cards in the deck. The game is played over a series of turns in which you, as the Archon leading your company, use the creatures, technology, artifacts, and skills of a chosen House to reap precious Æmber, hold off your enemy’s forces, and forge enough keys to unlock the Crucible’s Vaults.
