Tabletop Gaming

Tabletop gaming is an umbrella for all games that are not played digitally. This includes board games like Monopoly and Life, strategy games like Jenga and Risk, and even some card game tournaments for games like Magic, Pokémon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Occasionally, we also have someone to run tabletop RPGs like D&D and Warhammer.

Tournaments

The tournaments will be held in Gaming Hall, Hall 3 of the San Jose Convention Center.
