The greatest adventures in gaming all start in a tavern with unlikely characters! Come to Petrie’s Gaming “tavern” located on the mezzanine! Grab your “brew” (we have free water and cups!) and band together with strangers who will soon become your companions and life long friends for daring adventures! Will you face dragons in a role playing game? Conquer the dice rolls to become masters of the board games? Or will you betray the others to collect all the cards? Stop by to see what games are being rolled out all weekend or start one of your own. GAMEFEST IS THE CONVENTION FOCUSED ON BOARD GAMES, CARD GAMES, ROLE PLAYING AND MINIATURES. OUR MISSION IS TO BRING YOU INDUSTRY INSIDERS, HELPFUL PANEL DISCUSSIONS AND OF COURSE, PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITIES TO PLAY THE LATEST GAMES!

Gamer’s Giving –  A local 501(c)(3) charity built by gamers, for gamers. Gamers Giving raises money for local gamers here in Colorado who have had catastrophic circumstances… cancer, house on fire, things of that magnitude. When raising money for gamers, 100% of the money we raise goes to Colorado Gamers in need. You can learn more about us at our facebook page.



Our play to win library is BACK!  You could win a game just by playing!  Thanks to our amazing sponsors, Gamefest is proud to bring back the play to win library.  Come visit us on the Gamefest Mezzanine, pick a game that looks interesting and have fun.  It’s as simple as that.   


Some say its insanity…Others say its boredom…and yet some believe it is something far more sinister.  Every year around this time, common folk like yourselves are whisked away from their homes into the deep abyss of Pryzaax’s Lair.  It is in this magical place that they scrounge to survive and hope that their wits are enough to see them through.  Although legend has it that a few have made it out; most are never seen from again.  On this day you have been summoned.  What started as a normal day may end in triumph or your agonizing defeat.  Will you conquer your challenges through superior might, overcome each challenge on wits and skill, or will you never be heard from again?  The Tiny Dungeon is back!
