If you’ve got game, this con is for you.

Like the rise of vinyl records in a digital media world, card and board games are having a serious comeback. This year at Treefort Music Fest, the explicitly digital Hackfort hosted an Analog Gaming Happy Hour. Virtual and real gaming are pleasures shared by the same people. From Friday, April 1 to Sunday, April 3, go full analog with the Gem State Gaming Convention, hosted at the Riverside Hotel and Convention Center. Try out new games like Love Letter and Splendor at Learn to Play events, go head-to-head in rounds of Settlers of Catan, Star Realms, try your hand in Star Realms tournaments, and get serious with epic team Warhammer 40K and Bang! tourneys. One-day badges cost $10-$20, and $30 gets you access to the entire convention all weekend.
