Expo 2016...That's a Wrap!

We've just put the wraps on 2016 with another terrific turnout with attendance coming in around 275. Great numbers again. A great variety of games hit the tabletops this year, from new to old, and it was a real pleasure to welcome back our guest of honor, Dean Essig. Dean plans to return for 2017, so fans of his games can rejoice!

As is customary, we will open online registration for Expo 2017 after the New Year. The Expo 2017 dates are May 27 - June 3, 2017. Looking forward to seeing you then, less than 11 months away.




Overflow Hotel Accommodations

Due to another record-breaking turnout, we've been working with our event site, Tempe Mission Palms Hotel, since the hotel has no bookings for certain nights during our event. Obviously, we are learning of many attendees from out of town unable to get a full event booking, so we have already come up with a great solution.

The Residence Inn Tempe Downtown/University is only a stone's throw from the hotel (short walking distance) and we have many attendees already booking at this hotel. The rooms also include a kitchen and separate living room. We highly recommend you book with this hotel. In the meantime, we will continue working with TMPH to see if we can secure additional rooms based on cancellations.


Game Sign-ups Now Posted!

We are pleased to announce we have posted the Game Sign-ups for CSW Expo 2016. Check out the many great titles our attendees are looking to play, and now's your chance to network and coordinate on games you wish to play during our grand event!


Attendee Page Now Online!

We apologize for the delay as we've been hustling with our Annual Donation Drive and redesigned Newsdesk. We are making headway now in providing you information about initial Expo sign-up activity.

We have completed the Attendee Roster as of today. We're almost already at the halfway mark to last years' numbers, yet we know a lot of folks have yet to submit their registration forms! We have 18 First-time attendees signed up as well which is fantastic news.

We will be debuting our Game Sign-ups page later this week!


Attendee List and Sign-Ups Coming Soon!

We should have our initial Attendee List and Expo Game Sign-up sheet online by Feb. 21. Thank you for your patience!


Expo 2016 Guest of Honor, Dean Essig

Fans of The Gamers and MMP -- rejoice!

We are pleased to announce that our ConsimWorld Expo 2016 Guest of Honor will be Dean Essig, Founder of The Gamers:

We are doubly pleased Dean's better half, Sara Essig, will be joining us as well. Special thanks to Chip Pharr for assisting us to help make this happen!

It's always a thrill for me to be able to roll out the Red Carpet for those who are tremendous contributors to this modest hobby of ours. Hundreds and hundreds of hours of gaming pleasure around the globe have been a direct result of Dean and Companies many great games published over the past 20+ years.

And I'm very much looking forward to seeing Dean and Sara's been many years!


Introducing New Major Sponsor

Navigating Game Sign-ups Page

We couldn't be more pleased with the initial sign-up activity, with more than 150 participants already registered for CSW Expo 2015 -- smashing all previous records. Just a quick tip for those who may be unfamiliar with our Game Sign-ups page. Please take note of the three tabs at the bottom of the page, where you can navigate between Monster and Open-gaming titles, along with our featured gaming events (most sponsored by publishers/designers, such as hosted playtest sessions, drop-in gaming activities, tournament play, etc.).
