Posted by Game With Dawn on September 26, 2016 at 2:05 PM Comments comments (0)


Registration for BGG.Spring 2017 convention opens today, 9/26/16, at 5pm central!  BGG.Spring will be held May 26-29, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency DFW.  For complete details, or to book your hotel and convention registration online, visit:  

Have questions about the convention?  Check out the BGG forum thread at  Here are a few details quoted from that thread, posted by BGG Admin Jeff Anderson (CaptainQwyx):

"- While we don't expect an immediate sellout like happened this year for BGG.CON, we do encourage you to register early and take advantage of the early bird badge discount ($10 off the pricing listed below).

"- Same location as BGG.CON: Hyatt Regency DFW Airport

"- Badges will be $75; Veterans/Active Duty: $65; Kids ages 4-11: $55 ($10 early bird discount good through 12/1/16)

"- [Hotel] room-rate is $124/night + taxes & fees

"- Airport parking will be validated by the hotel for all convention attendees

"- Activity areas for kids of all ages: a toy room for 5ish and under, crafts for 4ish-6ish, games for 7ish and up; a nursing mothers lounge

"- Direct parental supervision required for all children under 12 years old

"- Open gaming areas for families gaming with other families and also a separately-designated area for teens/adults only

"Our core philosophy is that this is a BGG.CON where kids of all ages are welcome and have fun. It is not, however, a gaming convention designed specifically for young kids. Think Epcot Center instead of Magic Kingdom, or Tomorrowland instead of Toontown. So even if you don't have kids of your own, but you don't mind them being around, you should still have a great time."
