We are thrilled to have our Gamers-in-Training (Age 4-12) with us at BGG.Spring! This is a great opportunity to play with old and new friends and we hope they learn lots of new games.
Some guidelines for Parents/Guardians:
Parental/Guardian supervision is required for all children under thirteen years of age. At no time will BoardGameGeek or Team Geek take responsibility for your children - there is no babysitting service provided. We feel comfortable allowing kids 13 and up to roam around the convention areas, as long as you're comfortable with it as well. We trust that you, as their parents, are the best qualified to make that decision. We do ask that you or a designated adult still be available onsite at the convention should any issues arise.
We’ve designated a meeting space as an "under 12" area for parents/guardians to bring the kids over for fun activities for the young ones - toy and crafts, LEGO and Heroscape. We’ll have some tables in there as well for you to game while you supervise.
This room will be sanitized each night between 9pm and 9am
A nursing lounge will also be designated for nursing mothers and children.
In addition to several dedicated breakout areas for certain types of games, we have two open gaming areas - one, where the whole family is welcome and another, for only teens and adults. Even in the family room we asked that your kids be supervised and not running around in a disruptive manner.
One final note - we’ve seen reports of an increasing number of incidents of harassment at various geek-related events and conventions the past few years. We just want you to know we will not tolerate any such behavior at BGG.Spring from adults or the Gamers-in-Training and we reserve the right to eject anyone from the convention without refund.
