Is there any kind of schedule or is it just open gaming and the auction?

Closer to the date, the gaming schedule will be posted. They usually use Warhorn but the website looks different this year so we shall see.

There is also a very small game library, a few play-to-win games and room for open gaming.

I will try to remember to post it when I see that the schedule is up.

My family and I have attended 4 or 5 times - we love it!

Oh, Erick - If you are only coming for open gaming then someone else needs to answer this question for you. I am no help.

Yes, I have seen open gaming. There is definitely, at a minimum, a small group that brings games and plays them "off schedule". Are there more? I don't know. Probably?

My family schedules ourselves for board games. My son, who plays D&D, schedules himself, too.

I know there are others here on BGG that go to Mepacon so I am hoping that they can give you a better idea of the open gaming scene.

Or email the organizers - they are helpful and super nice.

Can you please shed some light on the open gaming aspect at this con? Amount of people participating in open gaming? Ease to find a game and / or players? Thanks.

Alot of the people schedule slots of the board games they are running. THere are sign up lists outside of the main game room to tell you want board/rpg games are running for that slot and what table number they are at. You can tell if there is open space for the game you might be interested in.

Now if you just want to bring your own games and just have open play just check with the organizer to make sure the table you want is free.

In the back if the main hall there is a library of games that people can just borrow and play.
