Buckeye Game Fest will be held May 2-5, 2024, at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Columbus, OH. The War Room at Buckeye Game Fest will be April 29th – May 5th.

Buckeye Game Fest is central Ohio’s premiere board gaming convention.  This convention has been a local favorite for over two decades, best known for our open board gaming space and featuring the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society’s extensive game library.  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 open gaming, our show also offers the following:

  • Host of events, including board games, RPGs, Artemis ship bridge simulator, and more!
  • Annual Raffle: Chance to win great prizes donated by our wonderful sponsors.
    50% of the proceeds will be donated to The Extra Life Campaign.
  • Vendor Hall
  • Play To Win:  Play newly sealed games to win them. Each play = One Entry
