Chattanooga Tabletop Game Fest Is Saturday

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

After the success of the first event in April, the second Chattanooga Tabletop Game Fest will be held Saturday from 12-10 p.m. The event will take place at the historic, downtown Ridgedale Masonic Lodge and features 10 hours of non-stop board gaming including the hottest new games available as well as modern classics. 

The event will be hosted by two local game stores, Infinity Flux and Game On of Chattanooga.

Hundreds of open game demos will be available with volunteers on hand to teach new games. The event will also include a used game silent auction where participants can trade in gently-used and unwanted games for store credit to buy new ones. 

Entry is $5 and is open to gamers of all ages. Parking is free, and food and drink will be available for purchase.  

The Ridgedale Masonic Lodge is at 1500 Dodds Ave. For more information, visit the Facebook page.
