Gaming & charity

Open Gaming Weekend returns, and this time, we've teamed up with Game for the Cause to make things even more awesome!  Open Gaming Weekend offers tons of space to play whatever games you like, from board games to role-playing to Magic, or anything in between.  Even better, Game for the Cause will be bringing their amazing silent auction (with all proceeds benefiting The SAFE Alliance), play-to-win library, and more!

The convention will run October 19-21, 2018 at the Austin Marriott South!
