The majority of our game day events are based around open play. This day is all about celebrating our love of gaming by dedicating time to playing games that we might not have the opportunity to play that often, or to learn new stuff! Our entire library collection will be available to check out, one game at a time with a valid ID, during the entire event.
We will be allowing attendees to host their own gaming events this year! Spots will be limited to a certain amount of tables per hour to save space for open gaming. Those running events will get a free badge for the day. Event submission opens on November 19th and will close on March 31st, or earlier if spots fill up. All events will be scheduled on December 29th and any additional events submitted after this will be added. Please note there is a dedicated space for playtesting available – more info below. All game play events are free. If you’re interested in running a craft based event (or something that requires materials), there is a possibility of adding a cost to event tickets.

The consignment store is a space for people to sell their used or unwanted games! All badge holders can peruse from 1pm – 8pm. Both cash and credit will be accepted. A fee will be added to all card payments. There will be no negotiating prices in the consignment store. All items are priced by the seller and we are not at liberty to change that price.
