Stumptown Game Summit is all about the players and community. We have the following events and happenings at our convention. We can’t wait to share them all with you. Keep checking back here as we announce more!

Designer Alley

One of our favorite ways to build a strong community is through our Designer Alley. It gives designers an opportunity to engage with attendees, teach their games, and receive feedback about them. It also allows our attendees a unique experience of playing games directly with the designers. It even gives you a shot at winning some of their games through our play-to-win system.


Play-to-Win is a great system where everyone wins! Designers and publishers get eyes on their amazing creations and players not only get to play a new game, but also a chance to win it! That is right, all you have to do is play the game and you are entered into a drawing for that game. Since only so many people can play it your chances of winning are increased!


At Stumptown Game Summit we believe that you should have a choice about what you could win as a prize. So we put all the raffle items out on display and you can choose which one you put your raffle tickets with. Do you put all your eggs in one basket? Or do you spread them out? It is all up to you!

More to Come!

We are planning more events, so stay tuned!
