Winter BoardGasm ’16

Mark your calendars! BoardGasm returns to The Board Room Game Cafe on Sunday, February 28th, 2016!

The cafe will be opening its doors an hour early for us, and the back room will be a BoardGasm dedicated space for the entirety of the day.

The Board Room’s standard $5 admission applies to all, as does its minors policy (accompanied by a legal parent or guardian, arrive before 6pm, order a meal, stay for up to 2 hours).

Look for announcements regarding door prizes, game schedules, and other details in the coming days and weeks!

Summer BoardGasm – Changes

We’ve made a minor adjustment to our plans for the upcoming Summer BoardGasm, so I just wanted to make a post so you all know about it.

We are going to be taking the first 30 minutes of our scheduled time (i.e. 12:00 to 12:30) to hold our annual general meeting for the NSBGS.  Because of time constraints we will have to limit the discussion somewhat, but if you have any questions you’d like to ask feel free to come by.

We will also be holding two elections at this meeting, one for our Treasurer and one for an additional director.  Kate Thompson, our incumbent Treasurer, will be running for the second position (assuming we can find another Treasurer).  We are very much looking for someone who has experience as a Treasurer to join us here, although experience is not necessarily a requirement.  If you’re interested in either of these positions we would appreciate a heads-up if you are planning on running (although you are only required to be at the meeting and be nominated in order to run).

In any case, from 12:30 to 1:00 we will then allow people to set up the games they will be running, with the first scheduled games starting at 1:00.


Summer BoardGasm ’15

Alright, we finally have a date for Summer BoardGasm ’15!

This year, Summer BG will be on July 26th from 12pm to 12am, and it will be held at The Board Room Game Cafe!

Entry will still be $5 for the day, but we will be unable to sell advance tickets this time around; that said, they will be able to accept debit/credit cards at the door this time around.  It is also important to note that minors are only allowed to attend until 6pm, will have a time limit of 2 hours, and must pay for a package deal; sorry, but that’s the law since this is a licensed establishment.

We’ve got a lot planned for this one, including door prizes (free entry) and possibly some food deals.

For additional details as they become available, please watch the Facebook event:

Hope to see you all there!

Summer BoardGasm 2014

Hey Folks,

We are happy to announce that we have a date for Summer BoardGasm 2014!  This year it will be occurring on August 9th, from 10am to 10pm, at Quantum Frontier.  As always, entry will be $5, and each family of 3 or more attending will get one free entry.

Tickets will be on sale online shortly, so pay attention to this site for that announcement.

We are also looking for people willing to help out by running some games.  If you’re interested, please email me at  The deadline for submissions will be July 26th, so make sure you get in touch before then.

Hope to see you there,
Jason Fawcett
President, NSBGS

Winter BoardGasm ’14

The date and location have been set!  Winter BoardGasm ’14 will be held from 10am to 10pm on January 25th, 2014 at Quantum Frontier.  Tickets will be going on sale at the beginning of December, and as always admission will be $5 per person.

There are a couple of changes I should mention here.  First of all, we are now offering a family discount!  Any family of 3 or more people with at least 1 child will get free admission for 1 child.  We are going to be offering this discount online on the honor system, but we will be checking at the door.  If you are taking advantage of this offer, please make sure you all show up together on the big day, and keep in mind that failure to meet the requirements will mean that you’ll need to purchase another ticket.

Second, we are instituting a deadline for submission of games to the schedule.  I realize that a lot of people like to wait and see what else is on the schedule so that they can schedule their own games around what they want to play, and I have tried to accommodate this in the past; however, over the last couple of BoardGasms I’ve been unable to post the schedule until the week-of, which means that I tend to get a slew of emails asking where the schedule is.  This time I’m aiming to have the schedule posted 2 weeks in advance, so I’m going to ask that anyone wishing to volunteer to run a game contact me by January 9th.

In any case, I hope you’ll join us for BoardGasm this time around, and keep an eye on this page for additional announcements.

Fall BoardGasm ’13

A small gaming convention for board game enthusiasts. Tickets are $5, and you can purchase them online at or at the door. Please note that space is limited, so I’d recommend either purchasing tickets online or coming by early the day of.

This will be a convention style event, and will have a schedule of games, along with free play gaming tables. Raffle tickets will be available for game related prizes. There will be two different tournaments happening, one for Quarriors and one for Smash-Up!

The official schedule can be accessed through the menu to the right.  Please note that this schedule is kept up-to-date as people contact me about running games.  As such, there is technically no ‘final schedule’ until the morning of the event.

Please feel free to invite others that you think may be interested.

Have great games everyone!
