  • Video & Board Games: What kind of IGDA & ABOSG party would it be without some of the hottest in multiplayer video and board games? Our new venue provides more space than we’ve ever had before to make new friends (or perhaps, settle some rivalries) with our expansive video and board game library; Curated by local developers.
  • Indie Alley: One of our favorite parts of this party, we give independent game developers a chance to do live demos featuring the latest games. Get a chance to play the next hot game while it’s being developed!

  • Group Draw: Like to doodle? Contribute your artistic genius (or lack thereof) to our group drawing!

We can’t wait to host the biggest party in the metroplex for those in creative media. This is a fantastic opportunity to blow off a little steam and network with some of the best creatives Dallas has to offer.
