The Atlanta Game Fest is a chance for boardgame fans from across the Southeast to gather for four 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 four days are $50 each, $90 per couple and $100 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.

Please note that parking for the event is free for all Game Fest attendees! You can get a sticker at the front desk so you won't be charged when you exit.

"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

Single day memberships are not available!

We have secured a great room rate from the Marriott. Single or double room are $78. 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 72 hours in advance with no charge.

To keep with the fact this is Halloween weekend we are adding in some things from Game-o-Rama. There will be scheduled Werewolf sessions, specifics to come. Also, Frank and Sandi are creating a special Escape Room for the event!

Musee de Chateau Chat Toy and Game Museum
Escape Room 4-8 players. 1 hour

Come see the special Dia die Los Muertos special collection at the Musee de Chateau Chat. This event will feature a guided tour of our usual collection of retro toys and games as well as a new collection of Day of the Dead-themed items. The tour takes 45-60 minutes.

Note: There is no truth to the rumors being spread that the collection is haunted. No ghosts, strange secret messages, inexplicable locked boxes. None at all. Nope. Nada.

Confessions: This time we wrote our own escape room. It is harder, creepier, a little more mathy, contains a whiff of story, and has a lot more puzzles which can be solved in parallel.

Schedule and a sign-up sheet will be available at registration.

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. The gaming room is open nonstop from Thursday morning until Sunday night.

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. Having a room that we could allow only sellers into before the start time worked great at Game-o-Rama and I'm going to figure a way to set space aside so we can do this at the Game Fests as well.

11 pm main room closes.
