Second Annual Chattanooga Tabletop Game Fest Takes Place April 28

Thursday, April 12, 2018

The second annual Chattanooga Tabletop Game Fest will be held from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday, April 28 on International Tabletop Day. The event is put on by two local game stores, Infinity Flux and Game On, to serve and grow the gaming community in Chattanooga.

After the "runaway success" of their first event in April of 2017, organizers said they are excited to see what this year holds.

“I think we were all thrilled and honestly a little surprised at the attendance last year. Over 250 people came out to game with us throughout the day. It’s exciting to know there’s a strong community of tabletop gamers in Chattanooga,” said Meagan Frey, event organizer.

The event features 12 hours of non-stop board games, role-playing, war games, card games and every other kind of game you play on a table. Over 100 open game demos will be available. Volunteers will be on hand to help teach games to new players. Guests are also welcome to bring their own games.

One unique aspect of the event is the used game silent auction. Guests may bring their used, unwanted games to put up for auction. The money from this auction will be transferred to store credit that players can use to purchase new games at either local game store.

The event takes place at the historic Ridgedale Masonic Lodge, 1500 Dodds Ave. in downtown Chattanooga. The venue has multiple floors with gaming taking place throughout the building. 

Entry is $5, parking is free and food and drink will be available for purchase.

A couple of hours later I went to retrieve the story and – zip! nada! ... (click for more)
