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

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. We have rooms that stay open the whole con for all-night gaming, too!

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

  • Host of events, including board games, RPGs run by Lurking Fears, Artemis ship bridge simulator, and more!
  • 2024 Tournaments: Catan US National Qualifier, Dominion, and Cascadia
  • Annual Raffle: Chance to win great prizes donated by our wonderful sponsors.
    50% of the proceeds will be donated to The Spiel Foundation
  • Vendor Hall
  • Play To Win:  Play newly sealed games to win them. Each play = One Entry
  • Back by popular demand will be the Consignment Store
