n its second year, the Pikes Peak Gamers Board Game Convention looks to be even bigger and even better than last year’s exciting inaugural event. The gamers have collected a library of more than 800 board games that you can play at the convention or check out to take home overnight, and they’ll be hosting a flea market to buy, sell or trade; a whole gaggle of vendors; a silent auction and contest with proceeds benefiting local community- building nonprofit Concrete Couch; a nightly raffle; and so much more.
Sunday will be family day, but remember: Board games aren’t just for the kiddos. Go get your game on — you’ve got plenty of titles to choose from.
