We will be offering non-stop board gaming for the entire weekend!
Attendees can select from the MAGFest board games library of over 150+ games (80 unique titled games) and play their skills versus the best that the festival has to offer. We have a large selection of games from Cool Mini or Not, Fantasy Flight Games, and More!
The library has games that are competitive as well as cooperative—chase eldritch horrors through the streets of Arkham; build the most prosperous city in France with Carcassonne; Span the galaxy in Battlestar Galactica and Twilight Imperium; win a world war in Risk or Diplomacy; or make and end friendships over Catan or Ticket to Ride.
The board games area is also great for learning how to play and perfect strategies of games you may be thinking of purchasing for your home library. The MAGFest board games library offers you an opportunity to try before you buy and our community can help you figure out how to play even the most obscure of games.
There will be independent game developers demonstrating games that are
being released through Kickstarter, as well as indie cards and games.
This is an opportunity to see the next big board game in its early
We'll have tournaments for all types of tabletop games, including MTG drafts. Please take a look here for more information!
MITS (MAGFest Indie Tabletop Showcase)
Apply to showcase your new game here!
MAGFest will once again be offering Pathfinder scenarios through the Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild, a worldwide fantasy roleplaying campaign that puts YOU in the role of an agent of the Pathfinder Society—a legendary league of explorers, archaeologists, and adventurers dedicated to discovering and chronicling the greatest mysteries and wonders of an ancient world beset by magic and evil.
If you are an experienced Pathfinder Society GM and would like to volunteer to GM at MAGFest, then please let us know! With enough qualified GMs, hopefully we'll be able to offer some specials this year in addition to regular scenarios.
D&D Adventurers League comes to MAGfest!
D&D Adventurers League is an ongoing official campaign for Dungeons & Dragons. It uses the fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons rules, and features the Forgotten Realms setting. New players always welcome, and we'll provide everything you need to begin your epic adventure as a daring rogue, valiant fighter or arcane wizard! If you are a veteran league player, you can expect a variety of events all weekend long at all tiers of play. D&D Adventurers League at MAGfest has something for everyone!
This year, dare to defy death when the Tomb of Annihilation comes to MAGfest. The so-called death curse, a wasting disease afflicting everyone who’s ever been raised from the dead, is spreading far and wide across the Forgotten Realms. The cause is a necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger, which is located somewhere in Chult, a mysterious jungle peninsula far to the south. Can you discover the mystery behind the Soulmonger and help put and end to the curse?
