Hello! I am getting really excited for BGG.con but it's been a long while since I've been to BGG.con (Spring or otherwise) so I don't remember how tables are laid out/size.

I was hoping to get in a one or two map game of Memoir '44: D-Day Landings, but the each map measures 28" x 45". Would it be conceivable that I could find enough room to get in a game of this or would it be considered poor form to take up that much room? Don't want to plan this if implementing it would be considered rude.

Thanks for the help!

You wouldn't want to do that in the main ballroom, but I don't think you'd have a problem setting this up in one of the side rooms and you'd probably be happier playing it in one of those rooms anyway.

I’ve never seen the biggest of the side rooms more than half full at BGG.SPRING. That room (Made in Texas?) has a mix of round and rectangular tables, and if needed it would be easy and unobtrusive to push tables together for a bigger play space.

Also there are conference rooms with a 10-12 person conference table that work perfect for games like this and you can schedule your game to reserve those rooms.

Yes for a longer, bigger spread game like this, I'd reserve one of the conference rooms for sure. It's quieter and less crowded, but you need to make sure you allow enough time to play in case someone wants to reserve it right after you.
