May 2024 News Bites

by Beth Heile

See you soon at BGG.SPRING! 

The BGG Store will be arriving at BGG.SPRING in two weeks, and we can’t wait to see everyone in person! Aside from our usual collection of GeekUp bits, accessories, promos, and convention shirts, we will also be debuting our newest lineup of button-down Hawaiian shirts with a Geek flair!

These shirts will be available for purchase at SPRING first, and then online starting in June. This unisex shirt is flattering on a wide variety of body types, and can be worn over a t-shirt or on its own. You can also tuck it, tie it, crop it, or do your best Magnum PI impression with it - the choices are endless!

BGG Store at Gen Con


And while we are talking about conventions, BoardGameGeek is pleased to announce that we are once again running the Hot Game Room at the Hyatt during Gen Con! 

Haven’t heard of the Hot Games Room yet? It is a ticketed event where you can check out the hot new releases from 2024. BGG will have a library of all the latest releases from Gen Con 2024 in a self-serve, self-teach gaming space. Each ticket admits you to this exclusive library for a two-hour block of time.

But if you are craving some shopping, Meeple Source will again be our sales partner at Gen Con, and you can buy all of the latest and greatest GeekUp bits from their booth in the main hall (booth number TBD).
