WashingCon, a popular board game convention for board game enthusiasts, is this coming weekend at the Georgetown University Conference Center. Doors open at 10am on Saturday, September 8th! Weekend badges cost $65 and Sunday-only badges are $37.50.
Parking is a problem! For those of you who are planning to drive to WashingCon please be warned that the lot that is attached to the Conference Center is owned by the Hospital not the Hotel. Parking is $75 a day if you want to use this lot. There is another parking lot on the Georgetown campus which is $25/day but it is cash only. Click HERE to view a guide to parking. We recommend using Uber or trying the free shuttle that is running between the conference center and the Foggy Bottom metro stop all day long.
WashingCon has a library of over 500+ you can check out on site and play. Or, you can bring your own games. RPG games are also offered off the main conference hall. Vendors will also be selling board games, dice, and various other geeky things you won’t be able to resist. There are a variety of food options on site, including a Starbucks, Royal Jacket, Crop Chop and Chick-fil-A. Here is a DINING GUIDE.
If you plan on attending, look for me! I will be helping photograph the conference. Stop me, say hello and let’s sit down and play a game together! – Blake
