Volunteering at Tennessee Game Days
October 1-3, 2021

An amazing convention like TGD could not function without amazing volunteers. While many of our volunteers have been with us for years (fun fact: even the convention organizers are volunteers!) we could always use a few more people.

With Covid-19 precautions evolving and the total convention attendance lower than usual, we are still working on how many volunteers we will need and in what roles. We definitely will neeed Set Up and Tear Down help, and most likely some additional help on Registration and Library. In the event that you volunteer and we don't have a job for you, we will reserve a regular admission ticket for you to purchase so that we don't sell out and prevent your attendance!

We are fully subscribed on volunteers for this event. Thanks!

Wondering what our volunteers do? We look for help in these key areas:


Do you remember that friendly face that kindly greeted you and handed you your TGD Passport? That was a volunteer. Registration volunteers assist in the check in process as well as help attendees get a lay of the land by answering the important questions of what's the wifi password, when / where do events start, and has someone found this random game piece that we lost?


TGD has a fantastic game library and all attendees are able to borrow the games using their TGD Passport as a library card. We need friendly people to run the check in / out desk. Providing gaming advice and/or instruction is strictly optional.

Setup / Tear Down

TGD has a fantastic game library! Said library doesn't stay at the convention year round which is why we need friendly people who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. We transport the library from its year round home to the event and back again. Bonus points if you have a large vehicle to help expedite the process. Note: setup and tear down individually count as a single 4 hour shift and volunteers who help with both setup and teardown get 8 hours of volunteer credit. No one is required to do both!

For this Fall 2021 event, we are not currently planning for any tours or special events that will required volunteers.


Wondering what's in it for you? Besides the obvious answer of being integral to ensuring TGD participants (yourself included!) have a great time, we have the following perks. All shifts are around 4 hours in length.

  • Free single entry to TGD
  • A volunteer hat
  • Invitation to the punch party
  • Lunch
