Sunday, April 7, 2019, will mark Berkeley’s first ever analog game con, the Board Games at Berkeley Convention! Join us at Pauley Ballroom, in the MLK Building, from 10 AM – 7 PM.
We’ve also tried our hardest to keep admission badge prices down so as to better accommodate our awesome Berkeley community. Badges are $15 for the general public and $10 for Students. In addition, 10% of all ticket sales will be going to the Jack Vassel memorial fund. The fund provides support to members of the board games community in their hour of need.
BGB has a lot in store! With support from Games of Berkeley and Victory Point Cafe we have an awesome selection of titles in our game library. We’ll even have game gurus moving from table to table explaining games to newer players. We’ve even set aside sections for RPG, miniature, and card games. BGB Con will also cater to fans of digital gaming with VR and esports sections. Once you’re done playing take a look at our wide selection of local vendors and artists. Done shopping? Industry experts, game designers and more will all be present as a rotating cast of speakers. Finally, a range of tournaments, game design competitions, card game drafts, raffles, Play-and-Win games, and more will run throughout the day.
We have many more surprises in store. See you April 7th!
