2018 Event Schedule

Here's the event schedule for the 2018 South Sound Board Game Convention. See something that looks interesting but that you haven't played before? Excellent! Most of us haven't played them either and the schedule includes time for teaching as well as playing. We will be doing signups at the convention (since we aren't doing pre-registration we felt this makes the most sense).

If you don't see anything that jumps out at you, or if the game you want to play fills up, don't worry. Most of the gaming at the convention will be open gaming, so no matter what you'll be able to find something.

You can also find a calendar version of this information on our Event Schedule page.

Want to help out?

We're looking for a few volunteers. We are looking for 2-3 people to work the registration table, a couple of people to help out with setup on Saturday morning and cleanup Sunday night (mostly loading and unloading the game library and maybe rearranging the tables). Send us a facebook message if you're interested.

If you'd like to help out before the convention, we can always use more flyers out in the community (especially if you live outside of Olympia/Lacey/Tumwater):

Input needed on scheduled gaming.

If there's something that you want to see on our gaming schedule, we have a poll up on our event page where you can let us know. The poll is running until Wednesday, at which point we will make a schedule based on popularity (and finding someone to run them).

Help us put up some flyers!

At this point, it looks like we have done a good job of reaching the coolest people in the area (you're the ones reading this), but what about people in the area who could be cool but just haven't had the chance? What about cool people who don't live in the area but are nearby? To reach those people, we need your help.

We have created a full sheet flyer and a quarter sheet flyer that we would like to post in places with a high concentration of cool people (board game stores, comic shops, book stores that sell board games, libraries, colleges, cafes, etc.) both in the Olympia/Lacey/Tumwater area and in nearby communities such as Centralia/Chehalis, Shelton, Yelm, and Aberdeen.

To avoid people driving all over only to find that someone has already posted a flyer at their destination, we have created a spreadsheet to track it. Anyone can edit it, so if you are going to put up a flyer at a place just put your name down. If you think of a good location that isn't on the list, add it (even if you won't be able to get there personally). There are instructions on the sheet along with links to hi-res PDFs that you can print out (you can also send us a message and we can work out a way to get a couple of flyers to you).

"What's in it for me?" you ask. Well, you will be able to look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that when it counts, you took up the torch of coolness (boardgames, maybe not the best metaphor, please don't burn your games) and set off, against all odds, to share the awesomeness that you have discovered. Also, the more people we have at the convention, the more awesome it will be. Finally, you will have our undying gratitude and perhaps a word of thanks posted on the social media site of record.

Here's the link to the spreadsheet again, in case you missed it:

Thank you!

UPDATE: The dates for the 2018 convention have changed.

Due to a scheduling issue outside of our control, we are pushing back the dates of the convention by one week. The convention will now be held on Saturday, February 24th and Sunday, February 25th. Here's the new flyer:
