Sampler Showcase
July 17, 2013

Alliance DistributorsAlliance Distributors will be sponsoring the 2013 Showcase Sampler. It will be changing format and location, running on Tuesday, July 30, from 9am to 5pm in Wheatland to free up more open gaming space in the Showroom. Rather than set demo times, hot new games will be set-up on tables during the entire day, available for play. A staff of game mentors will be on hand to teach games, answer questions, and help get players into games. The full week admission to the World Boardgaming Championships (WBC) includes the Sampler Showcase. There is NO ADDITIONAL COST to participate.
