Austin Geeks and Gamers Message Board › Register now for Board Game Bash
Howdy Austin Geeks and Gamers!
Austin’s biggest, coolest game event of the year is almost here. Register now before rates go up, and then RSVP here http://www.meetup.com... so we know to look for you. Here is a message from Jonathan Grabert, the organizer:
I run Board Game Bash, a board game convention right here in Austin, and wanted to update everyone on what's happening. It's coming up on August 2nd through 4th and will be at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown, just off I-35S between 5th and 6th Streets. It runs through the night both nights, so you can come and play on whatever schedule fits you! Pre-registration is currently open, but only for one more week (through July 26th)!
After that, you'll be stuck paying the door rate.
The convention is primarily open gaming, offering 4 gaming rooms with plenty of space to play and a game library from which you can check out games. Of course, feel free to bring your own games, too! In addition, we'll also have some tournaments, demos, and events like 7 Wonders, Power Grid, Dominion, Munchkin, X-Wing, Netrunner, a puzzle hunt and others. You can see the current event schedule here:
New events are still being added, so check back for new items.
We will also have a No Ship Math Trade at the convention, which is an awesome way to trade games with a big group of people. The deadline for submissions is tomorrow night, so get signed up for it and get some trades done.
More information on Math Trades can be found at the link above, but they are really fun, and the more people that sign up, the better the trades. If you'd prefer to buy or sell games, we will also have a game flea market on Saturday afternoon.
There's only one week left to pre-register! Pre-registered attendees get $10 off the door price, a custom printed name badge, early access to sign up for events, and a MYSTERY GRAB BAG!
Each MYSTERY GRAB BAG will contain a free game, plus promos and a bunch of other goodies. Make sure you get yours by registering now! Pre-registration is just $45 for the entire weekend, including game space, game library, door prize drawings, and all tournaments and events. If you'd rather pay in person, feel free to see me at SAGN on Tuesdays and Sundays, and I can get you set up.
Hope to see you all out there! If you have any questions, just e-mail me at email@example.com, and I'll get right back to you!
PS: The convention is looking for volunteers to help out at the registration booth and at some events. If you'd like to save on the cost of admission, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to see about volunteering!
