A flea market for board games that will be an hour long hosted by Ryan LaFlamme from The Cardboard Republic . Sellers will be able to set up tables of items for sale, and people can come and buy those games. If you are interested in selling please sign up below.
We here at G2S are a small group. There is only three of us who plan and organize our event so that hundreds of people can come together to game and have a good time. When it comes to the weekend of the event, we need a few more helping hands to assist in providing a smooth, meaningful experience for all. We need your help to make that happen.
I don’t know about you but I dread one aspect of going to a board game convention. It seems like everyone is a late night party animal, and there seems to be no early risers. My theory is there are many of us we just cave to the whims of the masses. Well two of the three organizers are early risers and this year Mike and I have decided to make a space for all us morning maniacs!
From the imagination of legendary game designer Richard Garfield comes a game unlike anything the world has ever seen—a game where every deck is as unique as the person who wields it and no two battles will ever be the same.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, because Granite Game Summit is quickly approaching, obviously. As the event grows closer there may be a couple of small things that you’ve missed and we want to be sure you know they’re out there and ready to be utilized.
