Gaming

We have a dedicated room for tabletop gaming, with various games running all weekend.

Albacon Board Game Café by Bard & Baker
Join Charlotte and Ariel in their debut at Albacon!  Bard & Baker will be featuring a collection of casual, nostalgic, and dexterity focused games to play throughout the day such as Suspend, Giant Jenga, Battleship, Ghost Blitz, Guess Who, Bananagrams, Happy Salmon, Red Flags, Cards Against Humanity, and more.
 
Bard & Baker is the Capital District’s first board game café, featuring over 600+ board games and card games, in a relaxed and inclusivity-focused environment, encouraging our guests and community to unplug and play through the world of games. Bard & Baker opened its doors in October 2019, offering classic titles such as CLUE, Scrabble and Stratego, to more contemporary games such as Ticket to Ride, Catan, Scythe, and many, many more.

Gaming Schedule: This schedule is tentative and subject to the panel schedules for the Guest GMs.  The final 2019 game schedule will be available on-site at the convention.
