Table of Contents No refunds after 30 days from your payment or April 1st (whichever comes first) You must show a copy of the confirmation email to get your badge You must wear your wristband at all times during the convention Airport parking will be validated by the hotel for all convention attendees Activity areas for kids of all ages: a toy room for 5ish and under, crafts for 4ish-6ish, games for 7ish and up; a nursing mothers lounge Direct parental supervision required for all children under 12 years old Open gaming areas for families gaming with other families and also a separately-designated area for teens/adults only

Our core philosophy is that this is a BGG.CON where kids of all ages are welcome and have fun. It is not, however, a gaming convention designed specifically for young kids. Think Epcot Center instead of Magic Kingdom, or Tomorrowland instead of Toontown. So even if you don't have kids of your own, but you don't mind them being around, you should still have a great time.

Referencing above, at no time will BGG or Team Geek take responsibility for your children - there is no babysitting provided. We feel comfortable allowing kids 12 and up to roam around the convention areas, as long as you're comfortable with it as well. We trust that you as their parents are the best qualified to make that decision. There will be no other non-BGG events or visitors on the ground floor - we're very grateful to the Hyatt setting aside all of the space for us so we don't have to share, even though this event isn't big enough yet to justify it on it's own.

We anticipate setting aside the Industry Wing as an "under 12" area for dad or mom or another trusted adult to bring the kids over for fun activities for the young ones - a toy room, a craft room, a game room stocked with child-friendly games, and a mother's lounge. Team Geek will be at the hall entry to make sure no kids pass in or out unaccompanied but will otherwise not be providing any child supervision.
