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.
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.
