TN Game Days Middle Tennessee's Annual Open Gaming Convention


2020 Charity Effort a Success

Hey TGD Nation - just letting you know that our collections for tornado relief throughout our TGD XV weekend raised over $2,000 for tornado victims. Thanks for making doing good a part of your weekend of having fun! And thanks for being with us in what might have been the last weekend for normal gaming for a while. We hope you are safe and secure - hopefully we'll see you at TGD Fall: Extra Gaming for Extra Life. We'll have more info about that event later this spring. Until then, stay well!

Sign up for the Catan National Qualifier

One event we will be hosting in March is a qualifier for the Catan National Championship! Come play three games of Catan. Do well enough and make the finals - win there and you have a guaranteed seat at Origins to play in the US National Championship. Win there? Then you win a trip to Malta for the World Championship!!

The qualifier will be held on Sunday afternoon. You can learn more and sign up here. If you aren't registered for TGD yet, the sign up page is still open now so you can still do so. We'll be taking it down some point on Tuesday, Feb. 25th so act fast. We may have day passes on Sunday but it depends on final registrations and we are getting close to capacity.

Registration Deadline is Monday

TGD XV is Early Registration Only! You can register on our website through Monday, February 24th. Logistics require us to move away from registrations at the door. Registering early is quick, it's easy and it will make things a lot easier on our volunteers - don't you want to make things easier on them? They're volunteering!

If your work schedule or other demands are making you delay, go ahead and register - we can refund your registration fully through Friday (2/28), and then with a small overhead charge for costs we will have incurred until Tuesday (3/3).

At the door, we will only be selling day passes as space permits (For Individual: Fri/Sat pass $25, Sunday $20. For Family: Fri/Sat pass $40; Sunday $30). Check our twitter for announcements each day! (Yes, you can buy multiple days at once.)

Extra Details for Extra Gaming for Extra Life!

Hey TGD Nation – just chiming in today to provide some more context and information on November’s Extra Gaming for Extra Life event! We hope to launch registration on Friday and are excited about this expanded fall event. So some expanded details . . .

  • This is our fifth Extra Gaming for Extra Life event but the first multi-day event! The Nashville Airport Marriott is being super generous in hosting us and allowing this expansion to happen.
  • The event will be preregistration only – mainly because we hope that it will sell out. Expect an event in size closer to TGD VI and VII (150-200) as opposed to XI and XII (750+). Our goal is that this is the first step in really expanding the scope of the Extra Gaming Event!
  • There will be a hotel room block at the Marriott for those that want to stay onsite. An online reservation link will be available at when registration goes live.
  • Speaking of registration, while we anticipate going live on Friday, Sept. 27th – watch our social media, our website, our blog or email marketing for latest news or any delays.
  • All proceeds from the weekend will go to helping improve children’s health in Middle Tennessee! Like previous years, we also are encouraging people that want to cloud source more fundraising for the cause to join our Extra Life team (sign up link). While you don’t need to join to attend, we will have a number of incentives for participation – we’ll be sharing them this week as well.
  • We are also planning for an exciting silent auction component to this year’s event. The goal is to use an online platform so that you can participate in it whether or not you are on site for Extra Gaming for Extra Life! Details will be coming in a few weeks. In the meantime, if you have an idea for a unique experience that you’d like to offer up for the auction, drop us a line!

Whew! Lots to get ready but we are super excited about this expanded effort and think you will be as well. It will be a great weekend playing excellent games with awesome people – make plans to be there!

Early Bird Registration Update

Hey TGD Nation! We just fixed a problem with the registration process that was preventing people staying at the hotel from registering for the Early Bird Special. We have fixed the problem and the person responsible has been sacked.

And just to be sure the person responsible for sacking that person has also been sacked.

We will contact those individuals that were affected and correct the mistake. In the meantime, if you want to take advantage of the special you need to act soon as it may reach full enrollment before 2018 draws to a close!
