So you want to volunteer at Buckeye Game Fest (or the Board Room at Origins)?

We are happy to have your help running some of the premiere events in Central Ohio. Our volunteers are what help make these events some of the most well-attended, and enjoyed, events of their kind.

Currently we run two events that require volunteers:
Buckeye Game Fest
The Board Room at Origins Game Fair

Volunteering for The Board Room at Origins Game Fair:

Our volunteers help run the game library within the Board Room by checking games in/out of the library (including runners to get the games and put them away). All our volunteers are required to work eight hours (two four hour shifts) in exchange for Full Show Origins Game Fair Badge & Board Room ribbon.

For Origins we have a certain number of volunteers designated as Shift Leads. These volunteers have prior experience with us and serve as the first point of contact when other volunteers or attendees have questions. They are the gatekeepers to the directors and other offices of Buckeye Game Festivals.

Volunteering for Buckeye Game Fest:

Our show could not be what it is with our amazing volunteers. We have a host of volunteer opportunities for BGF including: Library, Registration, Consignment Store, Show Leads, and Raffle aids.

In exchange for work two*, four-hour shifts (eight hours) we will provide you with a Full Show Badge and raffle tickets for the annual raffle drawn Saturday evening at our show.  We are working on some new volunteer compensation options for our 2020 show as well.

We will be accepting volunteer applications beginning January 2020.
