For the first time in 11 years, Geekway to the West has sold out of badges and will have no room for walk-up registrations. We're already talking to the hotel about getting more space for 2016!


Vounteers get a cool T-shirt, prize drawings, gift certificates, and other swag! Help make Geekway great!

Guest of Honor - Zev Shlasinger, Z-Man Games

We'd like to officially and formally annouce our Guest of Honor for 2015: Zev Shlasinger! Zev is the founder of Z-man games, and publishes such favorites as Agricola, Terra Mystica and Pandemic, among many others.

Every pre-registered attendee gets a free board game!

Geekway and Miniature Market have teamed up to yet again bring you a free game with your online registration. When you arrive at the convention to pick up your badge, you will also get to draw a token from our prize bag and get the game that you draw. Anyone who pre-registers a full 4-day convention pass (online only) will get a free game.

Play special event games like Pitchcar and Crokinole!

Geekway is four days of open gaming. Many attendees happily play games from the library and Play and Win the whole time. Optionally, there are scheduled and informal attendee-run gaming events that you may wish to join for fun (and sometimes prizes)!

Look for more players or find a teacher to teach you a game at our Play and Win room

This year, we will be providing at least 50 different games in the Play and Win promotion, with 2-3 copies of each game. We will post our additions to the Play and Win list as we acquire them!

Enter the 2015 BGG Microgame Prototype Design Competition!

Geekway to the West is proud to announce the collaboration with (BGG) for the 2015 Game Design Competition. BGG is developing a line of microgames, and BGG's Chad Krizan (chaddyboy_2000) will be onsite to judge the competition. The winner of this competition may be published by BGG!

Add a 2015 T-shirt to your registration, just $15

The 2015 Geekway T-shirt design is our classic arch and meeple, created by taking hundreds of board game components and laying them out in the shapes. This year, both Men's and Women's styles will be on a black T-shirt. We will have a limited number of T-shirts at the convention to sell for $20 each. You can pre-order a T-shirt with your badge for just $15 and guarantee your size, as well.

Experience the wonder of the Trade Table!

What is the Trade Table? The Geekway Trade Table event allows you to trade your used games for someone else's used games! The Trade Table is a Geekway tradition and is a signature event on Saturday afternoon. Attendees' names are called out over the intercom to pick a game when their game was chosen. New for 2015: No more random bundles of crap!

Last year, over 1000 gamers attended Geekway to the West.

Our board gaming event features a 1200-title library, tons of open play space, and signature events. Come join us and get your Geek on! A four-day registration is only $45 and gets you your badge, entry into daily giveaways, a free game, and access to our massive game library as well as our Play and Win titles. Meet game designers, play games, and enjoy the best four days in board gaming!
