SoBo is a weekend-long event that will introduce gamers of all levels to an expertly curated selection of the most fun and interesting board games ever created.

During the two days of open play, gamers from across the Gulf Coast will have full access to the festival's library of over 300+ unique board games. From the best indie board games Kickstarted this year, to the flagship releases from the largest publishers in the world, we have something for everyone!

Game Gurus will be close at hand to make recommendations on what games you'll love, and they will be there to teach most games you choose so that you don’t waste any time reading rules. With tournaments, giveaways, special industry guests, and tons of other game related events, this is not your typical game night!

Whether you are curious about board games or a tried-and-true hardcore gamer, all players will find what they are looking for.
