Game Demonstrations

Platypus Gaming will be providing instructions and demonstrations on how to play some of our favorite games. There will be demos for some gamers new to the hobby and some of the more advanced games for those looking for a new game to try. Tables will be set up ready to play the games of the day whenever we have enough people to give them a try!


Play to Win

Select games in the lending library will be available to win but only if you give it a try! Each player gets an entry card and near the end of the convention select players will win a copy of the game they played during the weekend!
