Welcome to Cardboard Caucus!

We strive to provide a welcoming atmosphere for you to sit down with friends, new or old, to play some great games!


Badges are on sale! Full weekend and single day badges are available by clicking the "Buy Badges" button to the right. We will be giving away over 35 "roll and write" games to randomly selected attendees who purchase an Early Bird Full Weekend Badge! Also keep in mind that the Early Bird Full Weekend Badges are discounted, so buy them now before the price goes up!

Game Library, Play-to-Win, and Prizes

Your badge includes all these benefits!

We are excited to bring back Board Game Wagon to provide our game library. They will have a selection of more than 1800 games for you to choose from!

We will also have play-to-win games (play a designated game and be entered into a drawing to win a copy of that game), tournaments with prizes, and prizes for helpers!


Children ages 5-10 can register for a $5 kids badge or get a regular badge. Kids badges cannot be used to checkout games or be entered into the Play-to-Win drawing. Children 11+ will need a full badge. Unfortunately, due to our Covid vaccination policy (see below), children under the age of 5 are not allowed.


The best place to park is on the north end of the building, where there is a separate entrance for our convention!


COVID-19 – In order to provide the safest environment possible for as many people as possible we will be requiring proof of vaccination for all attendees, staff, volunteers, and vendors. You will need to show a valid vaccination card at the time of check-in in order to receive your badge. Masks are not required, but are encouraged if you are experiencing any COVID-like symptoms.
