Celebrating our 21st year, Atlanta Game Fest is a chance for boardgame fans to gather, socialize, see old friends (as well as make new ones) and really stretch out and get in four full days of fun and games. We get a great group of friendly folks who make getting into a game easy. There will also be an extensive selection of the games folks are most interested in playing now, since they went to the trouble of bringing them for play.

Boardgame fans from across the Southeast gather for four days of fun and games. Hundreds of the world's best boardgames are available for play, as well as friendly folks who can help with the rules.

Schedule of Events

10am: game room opens. Registration is usually at the table closest to the main entrance in the game room. There should be a sign. Games along the wall are available for play. The owner has put their name inside each box, often stamped on the inside of the top lid, and has also made a sign with their name taped to the shelves or table/wall near their games to aid in returning the game. Games on the table are available for play. Games and anything stored under the tables are private property.

Finding people to play with is easy: They come to play with others at these events, so if you see folks milling about feel free to ask if they are looking for a game. There is also a dry-erase board where you can put game requests. Finally, we have "players wanted" and "teachers wanted" signs available. The main point of the event is to get folks into games, so if you need any assistance just ask Ward or anyone handy. We get a great group that makes the event easy and fun.

7pm-10pm: The 2024 Georgia State SHOBU Championship
A beautifully crafted 2-player abstract strategy game from Smirk & Laughter. Your turn is in two parts. First, a player may move one of their stones up to two spaces in any direction, including diagonally, in what is called a passive (or set up) move. Second, they take a more aggressive move, which must be the same direction and number of spaces as the first move. It is this second move that allows you to push stones across the board - or off the board's edge. Remove all four of your opponent's stones from just one of the four boards to win. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Southeast Regional Championship at CharCon 2024 (as well as a free badge to CharCon 2024)!
