DtV Lite 2018

Join the Down the Vent crew for their 5th year of events! This April we are bringing you DTV Lite, a board game convention focused on bringing everyone together to raise money for a good cause! A badge will grant you access to check out any of the games from our library for open play, and the option to sign up for events. We will not be bringing our entire library to this event (it’s Lite for a reason), so please make sure to let us know if there is a specific game you are looking to try!

Badges are only $15 (or $10 if you pre-register) and allows entrance for the entire day. We will also have a Family Pass available during pre-registration only for a cost of $25. The Family Pass includes badges for two adults and two children.

And as usual, all profits will be donated to our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital!! So grab a friend or ten and join us for a day of gaming, charity, and fun!
