Tennessee Game Days Spring 2022
set for March 4 - 6, 2022!
REGISTER NOW

Those that attended TGD Spring 2020 probably remember it as the last large event they attended before the world shut down for a bit. What a two years it has been! We were excited to host TGD Fall 2021 in October. We learned a lot of lessons and were able to hold a mass gathering that was delibreate, safe, and (most importantly) fun. Over two hundred gamers attended and had a great time!

We will build on that experience for an even better Spring 2022. You can read about all our anticipated Covid measures on the registration page. One portion of that mitigation strategy will be for us to keep the gaming rooms under full capacity again. Since we will have a lower than normal attendance threshold - advance registration will be required. We are planning for upwards of 500 attendees - so closer to a usual spring event - but it is still likely that the event will sell out (like it did this fall). As the Omichron variant changes the public health landscape, we will continue to montior health directives from the CDC and local sources and adjust our plans accordingly. With everyone's cooperation, we'll do our best to host an event that may look different, but will stil be a lot of fun!

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

What is Tennessee Game Days?

Tennessee Game Days is an open gaming convention held bi-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. You can read some descriptions of some of our past events here.

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, 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 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 both promote gaming in the mid-south region and to host events that do good while having fun. With so many cognitive and educational benefits associated with strategy board games, the TGPA hopes to increase their exposure with the general populace. The first step in this effort is our annual gaming weekend that not only serves these purposes but also helps us to raise some funds for additional efforts throughout the year. In addition, we've added components to our events that help raise money for important causes like food shortage and childhood health!
