    Gaming By Sea 2019

    A Board Gaming Cruise

    GamingBySea was inspired by our love of big board games (Here I Stand, Civilization, and Twilight Imperium, for example) and the fact that we never seem to be able to get the same friends together enough times in a row to finish them. So, we thought putting everyone together on a ship for a few days (and making them play with us) would be a fun idea!

    Visit our website (www.GamingBySea.com) for more details on the convention, cruise reservation information, and a Preliminary Gaming Schedule. Also, please be sure to Like our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/GamingBySeaCruise/) to help spread the word.
