PPG is honored and excited to have you as our guest for the weekend. The convention doors open on Friday, April 13th at 5:00 PM, and will have round-the-clock gaming until Sunday, April 15th at 8:00 PM.
Badge holders may come and go from the hall as they please. Each badge holder can check out any game from The Vault and begin playing immediately. Grab some friends, make new ones, teach games you know, or learn new ones…our primary goal is to provide a relaxing and fun space to play quality board games.
The convention will take place at Memorial Hall in Manitou Springs City Hall, located at:
606 Manitou Ave.
Manitou Springs, CO
The Vault is our library of over 700 board games that will be available during the convention. The Vault is open for game check out during the following times:
- Friday: 5:00 PM – 12:00 AM
- Saturday: 6:00 AM – 12:00 AM
- Sunday: 6:00 AM – 8:00 PM
Games can be checked out overnight, so attendees can continue the gaming party around town.
