Expect the following precautions:

  • Mask recommended but not required (CDC-approved masks available at no cost)
  • Entry prohibited to those who are ill
  • Hand sanitizer stations throughout the venue
  • Acrylic screens at volunteer stations
  • No vaccination requirement, but volunteers, GMs, exhibitors, and attendees are heavily encouraged to be vaccinated.
  • Note: Some events may have mask requirement.

We feature board games, card games, historical and other miniatures wargaming, and role-playing games of all sorts. You'll find cosplay contests, panels and workshops, one-off custom games, organized play events, tournaments, our storied Gamers Garage Sale, and our benefit raffle for Harvesters.
