Lakes Area Game Fest 2020
What is Lakes Area Game Fest?
Lakes Area Game Fest is an annual board gaming convention for new and experienced gamers, families, and individuals of all ages to learn and play contemporary board & card games. The event is hosted by the Lakes Area Board Gamers, an open group of board-gaming enthusiasts in Northwest Iowa. Our convention welcomes attendees from across the Midwest to take part in a full 24 hours of gaming over the course of two days. In addition, 25% of all event proceeds are donated to local charities, so when you support our event you're also helping us support those in need.
What to Expect
Attendees have access to our Convention Library of more than 200 popular games which can be checked out for free use within the event space. The library also includes a selection of Play to Win games – simply check out and play these games for a chance to win them at the end of the convention! Guests are also encouraged to BYOG (Bring Your Own Games) to enjoy with others.
Open gaming is available for the entirety of the convention, but plenty of programming is also featured, including:
- Scheduled gaming
- Envoy Herald game demos
- Local/regional exhibitors
- Used Game Garage Sale (bring your own games to sell/trade)
- Giveaways, raffle prizes, and more!
This is an opportunity to enjoy the tabletop gaming hobby in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We hope you'll join us!
