November 18-19, 2019 @ BGG.CON

What is Tabletop Network?

Tabletop Network is an annual gathering of tabletop game designers, dedicated to honing the craft of game design. Presentations are given each day by leading designers on specific topics such as engagement, balance, and emerging trends. While prototypes and playtesting are important, Tabletop Network takes a break from those to focus on sharing and learning together.


In partnership with BoardGameGeek, Tabletop Network will be hosted the two days leading up to BGG.CON in Dallas, Texas. Attendees will be able to attend both events, first developing their skills, and then enjoying some down time playing games (or testing your latest design).


Through collaboration and the sharing of institutional knowledge and best practices, attendees will leave the conference with new tools in their toolkit to help them design tomorrow's best games.
