Announcing DaveCon 2017
by Lansing Board Gamers!

Last year, DaveCon 2016 had over 160 attendees!

Where: Okemos Comfort Inn Conference Center, 2187 University Park Drive Okemos, MI 48864 From: I-96 exit 110, go North on Okemos Road, then after 1/4 mile, turn right on University Commerce Park - conference center and hotel is on your right. If you want to spend the night, there is a block of rooms available for $109 - just mention DaveCon (or that you're at a conference this weekend). Comfort Inn Phone number: (517) 347-6690. Note: There are two hotels there but our block is with the Comfort Inn ($109/night) which is attached to the conference center (you can't get any closer). I highly recommend staying onsite. The hotels are a great bargain - very clean and a friendly staff.

What: Open board gaming, events and tournaments (Gaming at DaveCon explained). Please bring a copy of games you intend to sign up for. (Rio Grande, Mayfair, Avalon Hill, Fantasy Flight, Z-man, Steve Jackson, Railroad, etc.), and Texas Hold-em (no gambling). Board gaming events and tournaments are being determined. Please bring your favorite games for yourself and for our game library! Also, should be back again for 2017 - official play testing. Would you like your feedback to help shape the next big game? As a play tester, you not only get a preview of new games, but also get to provide feedback in the clever art of game design.

Used Game Sales: We are bringing back the opportunity to sell your used games at DaveCon! You will register your games at the Summit Comics & Games booth, our exclusive board gaming vendor, by paying a $0.50 placement fee for each game. If your game sells, you will pay a 10% commission of the price to Summit Comics & Games. This is the only way to sell used games at DaveCon - but also simplifies things and frees you up to play games while our official vendor takes care of the transaction.

When: Saturday, September 9th (9AM to Midnight) and
Sunday, September 10th (10AM to 6PM)
***If you pre-register, you can also game on Friday starting at 7PM***

Expect a great lineup of popular games from the past, present and future.
