Gem State Gaming Convention

March 20-March 22 at the Boise Hotel and Conference Center


Dust off the controllers and dig out the cards because it's time for the annual Gem State Gaming Convention. Gamers will have a multitude of entertainment options at the GSGC with trading-card games, board games, video game matches and even LAN gaming. Hit the deck in a "Pokemon" card-game tournament or "Weiss Schwarz" tutorial; get your tabletop "Ticket to Ride" or become the "King of Tokyo"; answer the "Call of Duty" or break-out "Super Smash Bros." in the console gaming room; and network with other area locals during "League of Legends" play. Both one- and three-day passes are available ($17 and $25 respectively), and gamers get a special room rate, so fun won't cost you a fortune.
