Save Against Fear Gaming Convention

Date: Nov 10 - Nov 12, 2023

The Bodhana Group will present the 13th Annual Save Against Fear Conference/Gaming Convention this November.

The conference portion will take place November 9-10 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel.

The convention portion will take place November 10-12 at the York Expo Center (Old Main Building).

This event is the annual flagship fundraiser for the Bodhana Group, a 501c3 nonprofit that utilizes tabletop gaming for education, capacity building, and therapy, as well as providing training and consultation for professionals wishing to use this approach in their practice.

The conference portion of the event (November 9-10) will feature two days of panels, workshops and presentations focusing on how board and role playing games can be used for beneficial and targeted results as well as topics including inclusion, representation and the general benefits of gaming. Some of the sessions will offer Continuing Education (CE) hours for professionals.

The main convention event (November 10-12) will feature three days of tabletop gaming, both board and role-playing, prizes, play to win games, and special tournaments to fill the weekend with tons of options for attendees to enjoy. Enjoy designers from UnPub showcasing their games in development. We will also be highlighting a wide variety of vendors, game industry professionals, and special guests for the weekend.

Weekend ticket prices are $60 at the door, which include a swag bag and raffle tickets for drawings throughout the weekend. Conference pricing will be $100 for the two days and $150 for the entire four-day event. There will be reduced rates for early registration. Children under 13 are free but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
