51 Hours of Non-Stop Gaming

It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This

 

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.

More events will be added to the schedule below as event runners finalize details.  Keep checking this page for more events!  Want to run an event?  Submit it for review on our event submission page!
