Our Gaming Hall includes a huge list of games that are free to play to all FanimeCon attendees. We would like to thank the following groups (along with our staff) in helping us bring more variety to our eGaming list.

South Bay Button Mashers (“SBBM”) brings local gamers together to create friendships through our shared love of video games. You can find us hosting house-held events, running tournaments, going to local gaming conventions, and more. We’re here to celebrate gaming and extend it to as many like-minded people as possible. Your Video Games, Your Community.
