YOUR MOVE!

It’s almost go time! Your first move toward victory at the World Series of Board Gaming in Las Vegas begins NOW. Our goal is for all attendees to walk in on day one feeling fully prepared and ready to compete! If this is your first board gaming tournament or your first time in Vegas, or if you’re simply fighting pre-tournament jitters, we’ve got you covered. Our master packing list, preparation tips and restaurant recommendations can help you cover the logistical details so you can focus on your game and enjoy a seamless WSBG Vegas experience.

NOT YOUR MOTHER’S PACKING LIST

First and foremost, don’t forget to bring a copy of each Ring Event game you’ve signed up for! We thank you for supporting WSBG’s choice to include games based on merit and not availability. Due to the size of the event and the walkability of the Strip, make sure to wear comfortable shoes that’ll keep you moving during long days of Exhibitor Hall browsing and sightseeing—of course, they’ll also come in handy for triumphant leaps and victory laps.

In choosing a backpack or tote to carry at the event, opt for a one with plenty of space! In addition to packing essentials such as water, chargers and hand sanitizer, you’ll want to leave room for souvenirs and other purchases! There will be an extensive array of vendors in our Exhibitor Hall. But most importantly, bring your BEST GAME!
