Event description

Join us for Lincoln’s largest board gaming event of the year!

The Great Plains Game Festival is the perfect venue for families, college students, couples, and people who love to spend time with friends (or even strangers!) while connecting over offline entertainment!!

We have over a library of over 1,000 board games to try out, dozens of Play-to-Win games and plenty of staff to help you learn how to play them! The Game Fest will also have tons of cool vendors, meals and concessions, organized events, and more!

This year we are honored to host the Envoy Regional tournaments! Tournament winners will receive a FREE badge to GEN-CON to compete in the Nationals. Included with that badge is crash space for the weekend in Indianapolis!
