Atlanta Game Fest 24
October 2-5, 2014
Wyndham Atlanta Galleria
6345 Powers Ferry Road NW • Atlanta, Georgia 30339 • 770-955-1700

The Atlanta Game Fest is a chance for boardgame fans from across the Southeast to gather for four days of fun and games. There will be hundreds of the world's best boardgames available for play as well as friendly folks who can help with the rules.

Memberships for all four days are $45 each, $75 per couple and $85 per family. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. You can also pay for your membership at the door -- please email Ward your name for a badge. After Thursday, please pay at the door instead of via Paypal, thanks.

Important notice! The hotel has all the extra meeting space booked so I won't be able to add more to the two rooms I have for the October Game Fest. As a result I'm going to have to cap how many can attend at 160 which is about 100 fewer than we had in January, so I'm expecting it to sell out. Over 60% of the available memberships have been sold!

In order to be assured a spot, I need your name and payment before the spots are gone -- either through Paypal at the site or you can mail me a check (made out to me and not Game Fest, thanks). When I let folks send names for a badge without payment I usually have 20-30 badges left at the end of the event, which is fine but I don't want to run folks away because I have a badge for someone who doesn't show, so it seems the only fair way is to take the first 160 who pay as well.

We are in a new hotel with more than double the space in January, so this shouldn't be an issue. I truly hate to turn folks away, but there simply isn't space for more than 160 total.

"Thanks so much for a great weekend! This was my first game fest of any type like this, and it certainly exceeded my expectations - especially going in knowing few games & virtually no people beforehand. I met many helpful and patient people (some local), and learned about some new games that would have been difficult to try out otherwise without purchasing & hoping." --Johnathan

Single day memberships are not available!

We have secured a great room rate from the Wyndham. Single or double room are $84. Why fight Atlanta traffic when you can stay and play? See hotel info for more details. I recommend you make your reservations early, you can cancel up to 72 hours in advance with no charge.

Schedule of Events
Thursday
10am game room opens

The meeting rooms are just off the main lobby. There will be shelves so we can have the big wall o' games for play. The gaming room is open nonstop from Thursday morning until Sunday night.

Saturday
1:45pm set-up for Flea Market
2-3pm Flea Market

The flea market is a great chance for folks to clear out some shelf space and get those unplayed games back into circulation. Remember, an unplayed game is an unhappy game. The flea market is free for all members, however, dealers may not sell new games at the flea market. Having a room that we could allow only sellers into before the start time worked great at Game-o-Rama and I'm going to figure a way to set space aside so we can do this at the Game Fests as well.

Sunday
11 pm main room closes.

A list of past Game Fests is here.
