Buckeye Game Fest is central Ohio’s premier board gaming convention.  Best known for our open board gaming space, and featuring the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society‘s extensive game library, this convention has been a local favorite for over two decades.  Check out a game you’ve been dying to play or bring your own. Our main gaming hall doors and tables stay open the whole convention.

In addition to the open gaming, our show also offers:

  • Host of events, including board games, rpgs, Artemis ship bridge simulator, live action role playing, and more!
  • Annual consignment store: You can sell and purchase games.
  • Annual Raffle: Chance to win great prizes donated by our wonderful sponsors.
    50% of the proceeds will be donated to The Extra Life Campaign.
  • Play To Win:  Play newly sealed games for a chance to win them. Each play = One Entry
  • Vendor Hall

Don’t miss out on the fun with friends old and new.
