About Atlanta Game Fest

Project 01

Atlanta Game Fest

Atlanta Game Fest is a chance for boardgame fans to gather, socialize, see old friends (as well as make new ones) and really stretch out and get in four full days of fun and games. We get a great group of friendly folks who make getting into a game easy. There will also be an extensive selection of the games folks are most interested in playing now, since they went to the trouble of bringing them for play.

"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 and hoping." --Johnathan


Here is a list of past Game Fests

Game-o-Rama is February 1-4, 2018, Atlanta Marriott Alpharetta

Schedule of Events

Thursday
10am game room opens. It will remain open until 11pm Sunday. Registration is usually at the table closest to the main entrance in the game room. There should be a sign. Games along the wall are available for play. The owner has put their name inside each box, often stamped on the inside of the top lid, and has also made a sign with their name taped to the shelves or table/wall near their games to aid in returning the game. Games on the table are available for play. Games and anything stored under the tables are private property.

Finding people to play with is easy: They come to play with others at these events, so if you see folks milling about feel free to ask if they are looking for a game. There is also a dry-erase board where you can put game requests. Finally, we have "players wanted" and "teachers wanted" signs available. The main point of the event is to get folks into games, so if you need any assistance just ask Ward or anyone handy. We get a great group that makes the event easy and fun.

Friday
10pm Werewolf! (location TBA)
David Satterfield will again be hosting this popular Game Fest tradition.

Saturday
1:45pm set-up for Flea Market (location TBA)
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.

Sunday, 11 pm main room closes.

  • CLS Express:
    Bob Solow from CLS Games has been selling games at Game Fest for many years, but we decided that it might be helpful to formalize things a bit so we are pleased to announce that Game Fest will include CLS Express.
