Apologies if this is posted somewhere but an answer to my question isn't jumping out at me...

I recall seeing in the past that BGG.Con is a no-kids show. Can we bring an infant though?

Fingers crossed!

I would see what an admin says, you can e-mail bggcon@boardgamegeek.com to get clarification, but, an infant is a child under 12, and the rules say no children under 12.

I would also guess no, especially since they created BGG-Fam mainly to address this complaint.

No, children under 12, including infants, are not permitted in the convention spaces. However it is a public hotel and you are certainly welcome to trade off watching the baby in the hotel room, restaurant, etc.

Please join us at BGG.CON Spring where we have other arrangements in place to make it very welcoming to gaming families.
