Dragon Con Board Games gets a new home in AmericasMart Building One on floor two. We will be offering non-stop board gaming for $10 for the entire weekend!

Members can select from the Dragon Con board games library of over 400 games and play their skills versus the best that the con has to offer. We have a large selection of games from Cool Mini or Not, Fantasy Flight Games, Fireside Games, Mayfair Games, and Steve Jackson Games.

The Dragon Con library has games that are competitive as well as cooperative—chase horrors through the streets of Arkham, Massachusetts in Arkham Asylum; build
the most prosperous city in France with Carcassonne; figure out who the traitor is in Battlestar Galactica, Shadows Over Camelot, or The Resistance; win a world war in Risk or Diplomacy; race the streets of Monaco in Formula De; or make and end friendships over Settlers of Catan or Ticket to Ride. New tournaments featuring King of Tokyo and King of New York will be featured.

The board games area is also great for learning how to play and perfect strategies of games you may be thinking of purchasing for your home library. The Dragon Con board games library offers you an opportunity to try before you buy and our community can help you figure out how to play even the most obscure of games.

Catan Studios and Dragon Con will hold a qualifying event for the Catan Championship.

There will be independent game developers demonstrating games that are being released through Kickstarter, as well as indie cards and games. This is an opportunity to see the next big board game in its early stages.

We also offer game tournaments and will once again have a Star Fleet Battles/Federation Commander tournament where both the newest and best captains can compete and learn to play.

If you love racing games, don’t miss our PitchCar racing tournament! PitchCar is a dexterity game where large, wooden, puzzle-like pieces are used to construct a race track that looks very similar to a slot car track when finished. But instead of using electrons, players use finger-flicks to send small pucks around the track.

And finally…Board Games, in cooperation with Video Gaming, will have a team trivia competition with all proceeds benefitting Dragon Con’s 2017 charity.
