GameStorm is the big one - but there are a few others. Check out the following links.

Are you new to town? I'd recommend Guardian Games as a downtown gamestore - with a lot of info about local events.

Good luck.

Run a nice small cozy one around 50 people, boardgames only in Eugene (about 1.5-2 hr south of Portland) over Superbowl weekend. http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/EugeneGamesGala/

Hi Colin!

Portland is an amazing gaming city! Check out the meetup calander: http://www.meetup.com/pdxgames/ for local events.

Every Thursday at the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne great games can be found (the meetup calender has details) and every other Sunday at Guardian Games (http://www.guardiangamesportland.com/) we have an amazing game day. Yesterday people played Automobile, Powergrid, Dominion, Galaxy Trucker, Cuba, RftG, Tichu, Atlantic Star and another dozen or so euros.

The next game day at Guardian will be Sunday, July 12th. But with game events practically every day of the week, you always have an excuse to visit :-)

This is a really old thread, so I don't know if anyone will see this...but does anyone know of other conventions in Oregon? I found "Just a Game Con" in Corvallis and see info about GameStorm, but I wondered if there are others. Isn't there one that meets in the Convention Center in Portland?

I'm in Bend but don't think we're lucky enough to have any conventions here.

Any info is appreciated and I'll keep looking as well. Happy gaming!

Very cool! Sadly the family we had that was living in Eugene moved to Portland, so we don't have any incentive to go there any more (other than to play games, now that I know about that group).

However, we have a lot of family in Portland so we're up there pretty often.

I would be hard pressed to drive 2.5 hours to play games on a normal weekend. I'll just play with my group here for now, but I'll PM you if we're going to be over in Eugene to see if there's an event going on. Thanks for the info and the help!

There's an 18xx (only) convention at a hotel near the Portland airport - I believe it takes place the weekend of June 18-21.
