Tennessee Game Days XIV
set for March 8 - 10, 2019!

TGD XIII set record attendance levels for the seventh consecutive year! In addition to more people, we also continued our numerous events, tournaments and tours. As if that wasn't enough, we also saw the return of the "Play to Win" promotion -- which was a resounding success. Over 1,200 games were logged on a "Play to Win" title during the course of the weeekend.

The only downside, and a good one to have, is that we needed more space. That space is on the way -- TGD 14 will have the most space available for gaming that we've ever had! We are excited about the ability to host even more people and hope to break that attendance record again. You can help make that happen by spreading the word -- social media, word of mouth, carrier pigeon, whatever you use, please spread the word. We want this year's event to be our best yet!

Hope that we'll see you there!
Early Registration is open now.

Our event will be held in Franklin Marriott Cool Springs, located just minutes south of Nashville. You'll want to stay to be just seconds away from our 24 hour gaming ballroom. In addition to plenty of room for gaming, our location has free parking and great amenities on site, including a restaurant and coffee shop. For those looking for more dining variety, the Marriott is located in Cool Springs - a mecca for shopping and restaurants in Middle Tennessee. There are hundreds of dining choices within a mile of the hotel! And, for those bringing families, the Marriott has an indoor salt water pool for guests to enjoy.

Early Bird Hotel Special

Want to start your TGD experience 12 hours earlier? There are three ways to do it. Raise a threshold amount at our annual Extra Gaming for Extra Life event (it happens in the fall each year - keep an eye out). Volunteer some time during TGD weekend. Or stay at the host hotel! That's right; if you stay at the hotel, you have access to Thursday Night Gaming!

And as if that wasn't enough, if you book now and stay at the hotel, we will give you one complimentary individual admission. Staying two nights? We'll comp two individual admissions or one family admission. Staying at the hotel gives you more time to game by eliminating the driving home (or to another hotel) and by letting your event start on Thursday Night! -- and if you book early and you'll be gaming for free! This is a limited time, early bird offer, so act now!

Still not convinced staying at the hotel is the way to go? That's okay, if you register early to attend the weekend, we'll still have reduced admission for you. So, what are you waiting for? Register Today.


What is Tennessee Game Days?

Tennessee Game Days is an open gaming convention held annually just south of Nashville, TN. Attendees from all over Tennessee, surrounding states, and from places far and wide, gather for three solid days of open gaming. All kinds of board and card games will be available for play and you can find willing opponents for just about any game.

What types of games are played at the event?

As outlined above, the event is focused on open gaming, so the easy answer is anything that you can find an opponent to play. That being said, the attendees of our event typically play family strategy games, or Eurogames. These are games that play in an hour or two, feature decision making throughout the game, and usually focus on player interactions over player elimination. Games like The Settlers of Catan or Power Grid. In addition to these games, modern conflict oriented games are also usually well represented - games like History of the World, Memoir '44, or Twilight Imperium. What you won't see much of are miniatures games, like Warhammer 40k, or collectible card games, like Magic: the Gathering - if your gaming tastes are focused predominately in either of those areas, this probably won't be the most fruitful event to attend. Take a look at our Past Events area to get a more in depth feeling for what a Tennessee Game Days weekend is like, and if you still have questions, let us know!

What is the Tennessee Game Players Association?

The Tennessee Game Players Association ("TGPA") is a non-profit organization formed in 2009 to promote gaming in the mid-south region and to raise money for charities. With so many cognitive and educational benefits associated with strategy board games, the TGPA hopes to increase their exposure with the general populace. In addition, we have an unofficial motto of "Doing Good While Having Fun." All our events have a significant charity component to them. Over the years, through our attendees' generosity, together we have raised thousands of dollars for charities like the Second Harvest Food Bank and the Children's Miracle Network.
