is a tabletop gaming convention focused on the independent and small publisher side of the industry, while also making table-space for gaming available to the general public, providing a game library, and including special events for attendees. GTEX 2019 will be located at the Hilton Houston NASA Clear Lake hotel, across the street from the Johnson Space Center. Join us for a weekend of gaming on September 7-8, 2019. For those with weekend badges we will have a preview night beginning Friday at 8pm. (A weekend badge is any badge that is not limited to a single day of attendance.)
With 24-hour gaming starting on Friday night, you may need a place to crash that is closer than your home. We have arranged for a block of rooms at the Hilton at a rate of $89 per night for a single king bed room or for a 2 double bed room. To reserve your room, you can go to our group reservation page.
GTEX is proud to include the Ettin Games and Hobbies board game library at our inaugural event. The library is open to all attendees for the duration of the show, so come find a new game or play an old favorite!
Get your passport card from the registration desk when you pick up your badge and then visit each of our Exhibitors and our Partner Skirmisher Publishing to collect stickers in your passport from each booth. Collecting those stickers will require at least talking to them about their games and possibly viewing or participating in a demo of a game. Once you have visited all of them and collected your stickers, return your passport card to the Registration desk. Then, Sunday, September 8th, 2019 at 4pm in the Discovery Ballroom we will randomly select winners from the pool of completed passport cards. Prizes include games and gift certificates donated by our sponsors and supporters. Chances of winning depend on the number of entries and the number of donated prizes.
