QuakeCon will once again host thousands of gamers from across the globe for the ultimate video game festival featuring North America’s largest BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Computer) LAN Party. QuakeCon 2014 is open to the public and attendance is FREE thanks to the support of id Software and Bethesda Softworks, the QuakeCon volunteer staff, and the 2014 event sponsors and exhibitors.
QuakeCon will take place Thursday, July 17 – Sunday, July 20, 2014 at The Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
QuakeCon and Common Ground Games have joined forces to bring the best of table top gaming to the new Table Top Village, located in the BYOC at QuakeCon 2014! Common Ground Games, with the help of DFW Nerd Night, will be hosting some exciting events at the show for all skill levels!
Come join Friday Night Magic on July 18th at 7:00pm CT to celebrate the release of the 2015 Magic the Gathering Core Set (M15). As this is a sealed event, anyone at any skill level can participate. The tabletop area will also host additional M15 drafts throughout the rest of the weekend whenever at least 8 people want to join in.
In additional to MtG and other tabletop gaming activities and retailers, Common Ground Games will also be holding a Ticket to Ride Tournament on Saturday, July 19th where a copy of the 10th Anniversary Ticket to Ride is up for grabs!
We’ll also have tons of demo games and staff on hand to teach newcomers how to play! See below for hours that the demo area and retail space will be open. The play area will be open 24 hours a day as of noon on Thursday, July 17th all the way through noon on Sunday, July 20th.
