$526.77 Raised!

Start: Jul 16, 2019 - End: Dec 1, 2019

Cardboard Caucus - a community board game event

No politics, just games…

Cardboard Caucus is an event focused on board games, card games, and other tabletop games.  Our goal is to create an experience unique to the Des Moines Metro that brings together the members of our community, both those already active in the gaming hobby and new ones too. This will provide an opportunity to introduce others to the exciting genre of modern board games, because things have changed quite a bit since Monopoly, Sorry, and RISK were the only options. 

The inaugural Cardboard Caucus will be held October 25-27, 2019 at Hilton Garden Inn in West Des Moines, where we will have more than 8,500 square feet of event space available. Events featured will include: tournaments, game teaching and demonstrations, a game trade, a play-to-win program (attendees who play a game from a specific list get entered into a raffle to receive that game as a prize), and a huge game library of over 1500 games to use for opening gaming.

As a supporter, you are helping to provide the community with a face-to-face, screen-free activity suitable for all ages. All funds raised will be going directly into the event for rental expenses. Whether by attending or supporting this fund, you’re helping make this event possible.

Thank you

Thank you to everyone who supported Cardboard Caucus last weekend, either by attending or supporting this fund or both!  We are humbled by the turnout and support.  Seeing the local gaming community come together the past few days for a weekend of fun and camaraderie was the goal we had at our first planning meeting almost one year ago.  Not only that, but there were a number of new faces to meet and play games with that attended as well.  The feedback we have received has been positive and is helping inspire us to plan a better event next year!


Thank you again!
