Admission price for The Big Game will be $26. But the rewards far outweigh the cost and you’ll be part of history!

Tennessee Game Days X - Franklin Cool Springs Marriott, Franklin

Fri, Mar 13, 2015 (08:00 AM) - Sun, Mar 15, 2015 (08:00 PM)

700 Cool Springs Blvd.
Franklin, TN, US 37067

Tennessee Game Days is an open gaming convention held annually just south of Nashville, TN. Attendees from all over Tennessee and surrounding states 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.
