Side Events

WSBG is designed for competitive board gamers and their guests. Only Ring Event Competitors may attend the 16 Ring Events, but all Side Events are open to Guest Gamers. Competitors and their guests must be at least 21 years old to attend.

Outer Ring Events will include games that narrowly missed being included in the 16 Ring Events. Prior registration isn’t necessary for the Outer Ring Events, but prizes will be awarded to their winners. Each Outer Ring Event Winner will receive a $250 coupon for their WSBG 2023 tickets. Additional prizes will be announced. Those who bring games will receive priority seating; after that, it will be first come, first served until capacity is met. 

View the Outer Ring Events schedule.

Other attractions available to board gamers and their guests will include the Exhibitor Hall and Open Gaming Hall with a library of more than 2,000 board games.

Note: Open Gaming will be available 24 hours a day starting Wednesday at 1 PM and closing Sunday at 12 PM. The game library will not be open 24 hours. See schedule below.
