In 2021 we will be virtual again, but are changing the format.
Friday (3/19) will be a normal day of sessions – presentations given by speakers.
Saturday (3/20) will be open discussion sessions, which are commonly called “BOFs” ( Birds of a Feather), people coming together to discuss a topic of interest. These meetings will have a leader who will structure the discussion with 3 or so discussion questions around the topic to be discussed.
Sunday (3/21) will be a Training Day – an opportunity for people to come together and learn from each other. More info coming soon.
Wednesday from 7PM – 11PM you can hang with the lovely folks from Start Playing Online! They gather at the Discord channel: https://discord.gg/fAM8yJw. Most games are played on Board Game Arena if you want to check it out ahead of time. It’s fun and everyone’s nice!
