From the recent ameri-hotness to tried and true 18XX rail road stock simulators, you will find something for every taste. Exhibitors will be offering Learn to Play sessions, but you will also find table space for a small card game or a quick session of Twilight Imperium… Trades will also take place in dedicated spaces.

Finally The Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts & Design will be announcing the winners of seven categories, including miniature games and RPG’s.
