The Atlanta Game Fest is a chance for boardgame fans from across the Southeast to gather for five days of fun and games. There will be hundreds of the world's best boardgames available for play as well as friendly folks who can help with the rules.
Memberships for all five days are $50 each, $75 per couple and $85 per family. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. You can also pay for your membership at the door -- please email Ward your name for a badge. After Thursday, please pay at the door instead of via Paypal, thanks.
"Thanks so much for a great weekend! This was my first game fest of any type like this, and it certainly exceeded my expectations - especially going in knowing few games & virtually no people beforehand. I met many helpful and patient people (some local), and learned about some new games that would have been difficult to try out otherwise without purchasing & hoping." --Johnathan
We have secured a very good room rate. Single or double room are $75. Why fight Atlanta traffic when you can stay and play? See hotel info for more details. I recommend you make your reservations early, you can cancel up to a day in advance with no charge.
Schedule of Events
10am game room opens
The meeting rooms are just off the main lobby. There will be shelves so we can have the big wall o' games for play.
1:45pm set-up for Flea Market
2-3pm Flea Market
The flea market is a great chance for folks to clear out some shelf space and get those unplayed games back into circulation. Remember, an unplayed game is an unhappy game. The flea market is free for all members, however, dealers may not sell new games at the flea market.
11 pm main room closes.
Please note that no outside food or drink is allowed in the gaming rooms. The hotel has a coffeeshop that also sells snacks and cold drinks and is also working on a lunch menu and special deals for us at the restaurant. The chance to sell us food and drinks is why we are getting the extra space to game in, which is a good trade-off, imo.
Game Fest South 6 is October 24-27, 2013 in Chattanooga, TN
