Game Scheduling

While BGG.CON is mostly about open gaming, there are occasions where you want to make sure a specific game happens. These geeklists here are used to coordinate that kind of activity.

BGG Con 2017: Wargames, Meetups, and Mules
18xx at BGG.con 2017 (Plans)
BGG Con 2017: Epic Games Meetups (and Mules)

And we set aside the dedicated boardrooms in McCombs, Lady Bird (Convention Level) and Dennard, Kilby, Matthews (Lobby level) and UP on the 11th floor - 1103, 1104, 1109, 1110 for scheduling RPG's and games that could use the larger tables using this wiki page:

Attendee Scheduled Events

We're excited to see all the awesome things that "just happen" at BGG.CON! While we don't have the logistical resources to run all the different kinds of events that many of you want to participate in, we know that you, our community, are awesome enough to run your own "Special Event". If you have an idea for an event, and you're confident you can get 30-50 or even up to 75 people to join in, and you don't need any official support other than dedicated space, reserve your spot here:
