Hey guys, the 2013 World Boardgaming Championships will be held in Lancaster, PA this year! And we're going!
The event is officially held from July 29-August 4, but because most people are working during the week we'll be meeting from August 3-4 (oh yes, kids, hotels and slumber parties just like in middle school). This convention specializes in war games, but there will be a lot of eurogames as well as new demos and such. If you want more info, go here:
Their website is kind of terrible, so I emailed someone to try and figure out registration. My guess is hotel rooms will run ~$130/night split among however many people sleep there, but I'll see if I can use points to pick up a few rooms for cheap.
