Friday Game Break logo

Given that the League is a pretty scattered bunch, geographically speaking, it’s highly likely that you’ll see us attending events from coast to coast in our slick yellow t-shirts. So, we know a thing or two about conventions. We wanted to take some time today to share some of our favorite articles on conventions – big, small, and in-between.

So Happy Friday – enjoy your con weekend, or just gaming in general.
KublaCon, BGG Spring and Strategicon GameX are this weekend! Who’s going? What are you playing?

Cons, self-promotion, and you

While conventions can be great fun, they’re also a huge opportunity for game designers. Make the most of it by learning how to promote your game from the fabulous folks at CriKet Games.

Make space for designers

Why should conventions make space for game designers? Luke explores why all game conventions should be designer-friendly.

Convention roundups

There’s nothing we love more than recapping our experiences at conventions. A few of our faves:
Seth goes to Sasquatch.
Why J.R. loves Metatopia.
Chris explores the first BGG Family.

Getting creative with cons

Of course, game conventions aren’t the only place to show off your work. Christina gets creative with
festivals, comic cons, tradeshows, and more. Don’t miss another opportunity to showcase your game!

If you just #GenCant

No time or money for cons? You’re not alone. Make the most of it by
building your own “con”.

And a link from some friends!

The great folks at Casual Game Revolution put together this fabulous list of game conventions in 2016.
