Welcome to the Connecticut Festival of Indie Games!
NEW! Our mid-year festival event is on September 17, in Newington, CT.
"It's the only convention where I feel I have a much more casual and personal experience with everyone who sits down to play my game." ~Jack Poon, Creative Cove Games
What's the deal?
We hope you'll bring your family and friends to the Connecticut Festival of Indie Games!
We're in the Board Game Renaissance: Tabletop gaming has enjoyed a massive resurgence in recent years - many people still believe that "spending time" means actually getting together in the same room as one another!
Family Friendly: The festival is designed to bring people of all ages together. Most featured games are playable with children ages 10 and up.
Cool New Games: Many of the games featured at the festival have yet to be launched, so you will be seeing and playing games with their designers, before the general public can get their hands on them!
Local Crafters: Support the "little guy" - this festival is dedicated to highlighting independent ("indie") game designers, the moral equivalent of "mom and pop shops" for the gaming industry. Our featured designers are mostly from Connecticut and surrounding states.
Pure Fun: Board games and card games are exciting and fun, by definition! What better way to support your community and spend time with your loved ones?!
About the Festival
The Connecticut Festival of Indie Games celebrates independent game development in New England and neighboring regions. Our goal is to create an inclusive environment for everybody who enjoys and appreciates tabletop games in whatever shape or form. The festival seeks to support and showcase the efforts of independent game developers. We encourage attendees of our annual festival to participate and play games with their designers throughout the event. The games featured at the annual festival are innovative and refreshing, demonstrating both the budding and the established talent of game makers in the American northeast. The Connecticut Festival of Indie Games is backed by Geek Fever Games, an independent game design company in central Connecticut. The Connecticut Festival of Indie Games strives to strengthen the game development industry of New England.
