Tennessee Game Days XV
set for March 6 - 8, 2020!

TGD XIV set record attendance levels for the eighth 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 15 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!

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 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, 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 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 also consciously added components to our events that help raise money for important causes like food shortage and childhood health!
