Cardboard Caucus 2019 Highlights:
Open Gaming Library
Our Open Gaming Library is provided by Board Game Wagon. 1500 games for you to play for free with your convention badge. You can view their collection at www.boardgamewagon.com
Play a game to be entered into a raffle to take it home with you Sunday!
We will be running a Game Trade or “Math Trade” in the weeks leading up to the convention and will have an area designated for participants to meet-up for the game exchange on Friday between 7-8pm. Details are available at the following Board Game Geek geeklist.
A Math Trade is a no-risk game trade using a computer program to decide who should send their games to whom. It makes more trades possible beyond the 1 person to 1 person trades. Example: Andrew gives a game to Chad, Chad gives a game to Will, and Will gives a game to Andrew. While it might seem complicated at first, the steps are simple and we’re here to help you.
There will be a designated area for badge holders to sell their personal games. Table space is limited, please contact email@example.com to request space.
More details to come.
