Board Game Lovers Meetup Group Message Board › Board Gaming at GMX
GMX, the Geek Media Expo, is a multi-genre pop culture convention in the vein of Comic Con that takes place late October in the Greater Nashville, TN area. GMX is produced by Arts Cubed, an all-volunteer non-profit organization which also produces the Middle TN Anime Convention, Tennessee's largest and longest running Japanese pop culture convention.
Entering its fourth year for 2012 (taking place October 26-28), GMX is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing and most beloved events of its kind. Based in storied Nashville, TN, one of the largest entertainment markets in the country, GMX is poised to develop into a top tier multi-genre event.
Tabletop gaming has proven very popular at GMX as one of our 20+ areas of content. As GMX has grown, so has our tabletop gaming programming, leading GMX to appear in a promotional capacity at the Origins gaming expo (one of the largest in the country) and to attract standout industry game designers.
GMX Features a 24 hour board gaming library and an extensive schedule of RPG games such as Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Savage Worlds and many more! Continuous demonstrations of today's hottest games. Scheduled and unscheduled gaming - join or start a game anytime! Prize drawings all weekend!
GMX also hosts a Miniatures Gaming room with historical and fantasy genres represented by Games Workshop and Nashville Historical Miniatures Gaming Society, among others.

As a new member of this group and the DICE Channel coordinator for GMX, I wanted to introduce myself to the group.
I have been a Dungeons and Dragons player for many years, and 4 years ago, I was introduced to Carcassonne. That is where it all started! Soon Stone Age, Power Grid, and Agricola became some of my favorite games! I joined a group in Memphis (where I lived at the time) and started playing board games every week.
I moved to Nashville 2 years ago, and have been playing off and on at the Game Keep in Hermitage. They have board gaming on Monday nights and the first Sunday of every month. I will certainly try to make some of your Meetups in the future.
I recently played and bought "Quebec." It is a worker placement game and lots of fun. I look forward to meeting you at your Meetups!
