Board Game Bash is centered around our large, open gaming space, and this is what most attendees spend the most time doing:  open play with other players.  But in addition to the open games, we also offer some events.

Remember that the convention does not close at night!  We run through the night on Friday and Saturday nights, so there's no pressure to finish games.

If you would like to schedule a session of a large game, BGB attendee Hector has kindly set up an Epic Games signup form over on BoardGameGeek.  If you'd like to set up a game, or join one being formed, head over to the BGG thread to register.
