Preconvention events will occur on Thursday and Friday, 14-15 May 2015. We’ll send updates once these events are finalized. For Thursday, we are working on a preconvention tour in the afternoon and a dinner and show in the evening. For Friday, we’ll have a tour of the Jerry Slocum Mechanical Puzzle Collection at the Lilly Library in the morning and a collaborative event with Indiana University college students in the afternoon.

The main convention events start Friday evening and go through Sunday around noon.

The convention agenda is under development, and will include the presentation of AGPC’s Sam Loyd Award to mechanical puzzle master Gary Foshee, guest speakers on games, jigsaw puzzles, and mechanical puzzles, tables sales, an auction, and a raffle. Game playing and puzzle doing will take place in the evenings following the formal convention events.
