BGG.Spring 2024

We are so grateful you are joining us for a BGG Event. We are excited to share with you our love of the board gaming hobby and hope you will have a good experience.

As with all games and events, there are rules/policies. This page contains the simplified version. If you would like to read the fine print, there are links provided.

All attendees will need to sign their acceptance of these rules/policies when picking up their badge. So please read these carefully.

Code of Conduct

(For a more detailed version click HERE)

Be Kind and Respectful - Speak kindly and positively about others. Do not insult others or put them down, even in joking. Avoid gossip of any kind and avoid speaking in anger. No cursing, swearing or using ugly words or gestures. No bullying. Do not tell jokes or stories about someone behind their back.

Be Prepared - Read the rules ahead of time and be on time.

Look Good - If you can wear it to school or out in public, then you can probably wear it at BGG Events.

Play from start to finish - BE ON TIME or a little bit early to your game and use good manners all the way through.

Have Fun! Make new friends!

Pretty simple, right? So what happens if there is a problem?

If you are having a problem, contact a Team Geek member (in the light gray jerseys) or a BGG Events staff member (orange jersey) or e-mail a BGG Events Admin

If someone in your game has a problem with something you are doing, and they ask you to stop, you must stop it. If you choose not to stop it, and Team Geek and/or BGG Events Staff are notified, then the BGG Events Staff will talk with you (and potentially parents/guardians if you are under 18) and you may be removed from the convention and not able to play anymore.

Health & Safety Guidelines

(For a more detailed version click HERE)

Take Care of Yourself - Eat, Sleep, Hydrate regularly and if you need some downtime, take it.
