We've just confirmed that members of the Spiel des Jahres committee will be joining us again next May. Just like this year they will have copies of all of the finalists for Spiel des Jahres, Kennerspiel, and Kinderspiel on hand to teach. What a great opportunity to play these games right after their announcement as finalists, and before the actual winners are crowned!

So don't delay, join us for a great BGG.CON experience, and at this event gamers of all ages are welcome.

Early-bird discount ends in just a few weeks!

Yes!!

I am super-excited to hear about this! The ability to play the SdJ games was one of the biggest reasons I went last Spring.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

I do not think it means what you think it means.

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.

Playing the SdJ nominees and interacting with the jury members was a highlight of this spring's BGGcon.

We're already over 1/2 of tickets sold as compared to last year total. I imagine there will be a push at the end of the month before the price goes up and some additional word-of-mouth at CON in 10 days.

Half of tickets available, or half of last year's total?

Question: Will both the official nominees and the recommendations be available, or just the nominees?

Only the three official nominees for each award will be setup permanently in the SdJ area. Many of the recommendations are available for checkout in the library.

Figuring this was a possibility I bought some copies and created extra components and sleeved everything so that you can play a full January game and then reset back to untouched for the next group to do the same.
