Edit: BGG.CON Spring is now sold out!

Some of you may know we started a second BGG.CON last year over Memorial Day weekend. It was the same great location, the same BGG.CON experience, with one little tweak (that, by all accounts, was very well received) - at this show in May the little ones are welcome to join their gamer families. We called it BGG♥FAM to celebrate this addition, but some got the wrong idea that it was strictly for kids. In 2016, we’re going back to our roots, and now calling it “BGG.CON Spring”. It is still the same BGG.CON, with the modification that kids are still invited, it just has a new name to better reflect the event’s vision: a BGG.CON where gamers can bring their kids, too.

Register for BGG.CON Spring here!

d10-0 Same location as BGG.CON: Hyatt Regency DFW Airport
d10-1 Badges will be $75; Veterans/Active Duty: $65; Kids ages 4-11: $55 ($10 early bird discount good through 12/1/15)
d10-2 Our room-rate is $121/night + taxes & fees
d10-3 No refunds after 30 days from your payment or April 1st (whichever comes first)
d10-4 You must show a copy of the confirmation email to get your badge
d10-5 You must wear your wristband at all times during the convention
d10-6 Airport parking will be validated by the hotel for all convention attendees
d10-7 Activity areas for kids of all ages: a toy room for 5ish and under, crafts for 4ish-6ish, games for 7ish and up; a nursing mothers lounge
d10-8 Direct parental supervision required for all children under 12 years old
d10-9 Open gaming areas for families gaming with other families and also a separately-designated area for teens/adults only

As we said last year, our core philosophy is that this is a BGG.CON where kids of all ages are welcome and have fun. It is not, however, a gaming convention designed specifically for young kids. Think Epcot Center instead of Magic Kingdom, or Tomorrowland instead of Toontown. So even if you don't have kids of your own, but you don't mind them being around, you should still have a great time.

Referencing d10-8 above, at no time will BGG or Team Geek take responsibility for your children - there is no babysitting provided. We feel comfortable allowing kids 12 and up to roam around the convention areas, as long as you're comfortable with it as well. We trust that you as their parents are the best qualified to make that decision. There will be no other non-BGG events or visitors on the ground floor - we're very grateful to the Hyatt setting aside all of the space for us so we don't have to share, even though this event isn't big enough yet to justify it on it's own.

See you in May!

Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you have lost sight of your inner purpose. Your state of consciousness is primary. All else is secondary.

Yes, that looks like Saturday at BGGcon. Presumably 2014. I see myself and, at other tables, people like Dan from DFW. But I can't tell what game I am playing. Edit: It looks like Pandemic Dice on the table.

Spring Registration Id: 13872
Attendees: #17663 and #17664

Whoa... I scanned it quickly thinking "I probably wasn't even there" and then there I am, at the very bottom in a captain america shirt getting owned by a complete n00b at Letters from Whitechapel in a one on one game. I was coaching him, but was still (somewhat pleasantly) surprised he caught me.

I'm pretty sure that makes me famous.

As far as the convention goes, I still don't think I can pull of a convention on a holiday weekend that also happens to be my eldest son's (and my) birthday weekend. If he were into the games I could probably get away with it.

That's the main open gaming room. There is another separate area specifically for the most popular new games as well as many other side rooms. There is yet another room for the library and also another dedicated vendor area.

That is a "stock photo" from BGG.CON November, 2014. You can see how BGG♥FAM 2015 was laid out here:


2016 may be similar, it may shift around a bit depending on number of attendees.

Ooh, there's even a 12+ area. Awesome!

Two BGG.cons a year? Life is GREAT!

I would love to take my kids for a DAY of gaming on Friday or Saterday. My kids are still too young for the whole weekend. Will you be offering day passes this year?
