This year, Queen City Conquest will host a new season 8 event for players of all skill levels.
Queen City Conquest will also host the Double Exposure’s Board Game Play to Win game library. A player can not only learn old and new games, but several winners will take home copies of the game they play! Over 50 board games will be available to win as part of our board game library. Double Exposure will be announcing which games will be included late this summer.

Our open board games library will be available all weekend so you can try before you buy from our vendors.
