How to find people to play a game with?

There are several ways to find people to game with. People are coordinating games on Board Game Geek. These are games that will take place in the open gaming area. There will also be signs in the gaming area that gamers can use to show they are looking for gamers. There will also be a message board in the game library that will allow people to leave messages about games they want to play.

Can I bring my own games?

Yes. Many people bring their own games to the Fair. There is usually space around the open gaming area to leave bags while you play. Gamers are responsible for their own games.
