The Game Library, Open Gaming and the flag system!
While we have more than 600 events on our schedule, there are at least that many again that are pickup, or open, games.
Open games occur when someone, or a small group, decide to play a certain game, whether it's a tabletop, miniature, or roleplaying game.
Not only do we provide space for Open Games, but we've created a huge Game Library that lets you grab a game and start playing!
Our Game Library makes it easy to start Pickup games!
KublaCon hosts a huge library of games for you to borrow and play! Over 500 games, and still growing, you'll find many of the classics to choose from.
You'll also see that many of our games are 'vintage' or out-of-print, and give you a rare opportunity to play them.
And while vintage and classic are fun... we also have many of the newest and latest releases for your gaming pleasure.
The Game Library is stationed just inside the Grand Ballroom (D/E)and runs:
and Monday 9am-Noon.
You'll need a driver's license or similar ID to check a game out. PLEASE return it when you're finished... and please be sure you return it with all of its parts!
Our Library is now LIVE and available to view online! You can see what's in the library, how many copies we have, and whether it's available! Check out the library before you come to the show to help you decide what games to bring. Check out the searchable library!
Where to play an Open Game
Here are some of the designated locations for Open Games:
Grand Ballrooms D/E - Open 24/7 from the start of the convention
Atrium Level near cafe - Open most of the weekend, except late Saturday evening until 6pm Sunday.
Scalini (Restaurant) meeting rooms - Open all weekend, though there are also scheduled events in here.
Open Tables in the Dealer room (Grand Ballroom F/G/H) - limited tables ONLY open during exhibit hall hours.
Other NON-designated Open Game areas
Even in our rooms that have scheduled games, there will often be tables that are not being used.
BUT... while they may be empty at the moment, it's possible that something is scheduled to be played on an open table in the near future.
To avoid disruption to your game, please check with the Coordinator of the area to confirm that you can use an open table, and determine if there are restrictions on its available time.
Use our Flag System!
Broadcast an available seat at your game in the open gaming areas with our new bright orange 4’ tall flags!
Just check one out from the Game Library and place it on your table.
If you’re LOOKING for a game, visit the tables with orange flags and see if you can join in!
When you’ve filled your game... PLEASE... return the flag and stand to the Game Library.
