Game on!

Games Library: If you want to learn a new game or just looking for something to do in between panels, our Games Library is the place to go! We will have a cache of board games for you to learn and play available to you. Our library will be stocked, so you can play whatever and whenever you want! New this year is that folks can check out games and take it anywhere in the hotel,  but MUST bring them back by the close of the gaming day and all games must be turned in by 2:30 Sunday. Please have a valid driver’s license to show at the time of check out. Phone number must be provided so we can contact you if the game needs to be turned back in.

Do you have a request for the Games Library? Contact our gaming staff at and if they have it in stock, they'll bring it!

We have gaming! And lots of it! There will be volunteers to help make sure you have a blast in the gaming area. We have role playing sessions, board game tournaments, casual party games and so much more. Come on by, ask us questions, let us help match up a game to fit what you’re looking for!
