The event states that is officially over at 3pm on Sunday. Is this accurate or are there usually tables going later into the evening?

The Library closes promptly at 1pm. Vendors will stay open 'til 3pm-ish. Otherwise, I don't care what you do. Once the hotel kicks you out, that's the real end time. However, historically it's pretty dead on Sunday afternoon since so many people fly out on that day...

Truth be told, it's kinda hard to keep gaming around the 12:30-1:00pm timeframe due to the sound of Derk's threats to those who haven't yet re-checked the games they took out of the library.

Thanks for the info - I was considering when the best time to book an outbound flight would be.

Ultimately, I'd go with whatever is most convenient. Decent time leaving, not something that makes you get up at 4:00am, etc. Costs can vary through the day as well.

If you end up being at the hotel in the afternoon, you will find others gaming, so definitely no need to fear sitting there for hours with nothing to do.

Last year my flight left at 2 pm and I felt like I was leaving a shade too early--too busy packing to play games in the morning, not enough time to go to a farewell lunch with new friends, etc. Your mileage may vary.

I gamed until about 2:00am Sunday (Monday Morning) last year.

I fly out Monday so I am available for vegging out or gaming, whichever comes first.

Quite a few people leave on the Monday, so there is certainly gaming going on until the wee hours. Just not with BGG.CON library games cool

In the past very few vendors were open on Sunday. Most of them packed up Saturday night and booked it.

I've left on Sunday afternoon and usually there are games going on in the lobby. Some people bring stuff (I know that I do: I don't assume popular games will be left in the library, particularly newer ones), and some people play their shiny new purchases. If you are staying and come prepared, you should find opponents. But yeah, it's way dead compared to the days before, so you don't miss much by getting home to the people who don't understand your weird obsession with 5 days of nonstop gaming...

There is enough gaming going on Sunday that you will be amused. It's not the rest of the week, but there is plenty of gaming going on.

I would love to learn that if I haven't already. Anyone in the DFW area now? I can bring copies if this is likely. I tend to want to get home by Sunday, but since home is just a drive across town, I could stay to play some of this!

I'm planning to drive back to Wichita some time Sunday.

A little Combat Commander for the road would be great.

By Sunday, I'm usually wrapping up and saying my goodbyes to everyone. I may play a short game of Tichu or two, or some other filler, but nothing major.

If I end up going alone, I might stay until Monday morning so I can get a decent night's sleep before hitting the road. If so, I could play some late afternoon/evening games. Wargames and AT, of course!
