Whatever your taste in board games, Foam Brain games has you covered.

With Expo 2013 finally coming to fruition next week, it's time to get excited and start planning your weekend. To that end, we've got a full lineup of games that Foam Brain Games is hosting in the Grand Ballroom from Friday through Sunday, October 4, 5, and 6. In addition to their scheduled gameplay, Foam Brain Games is also bringing along a huge collection of games to dole out to con-goers willing to offer up a Driver's License or some such while they're borrowing the game. Given the vastness of the collection, we can't list every game they'll have on offer here, but if you want it, they've probably got it. From the obscure to the mainstream, Foam Brain Games' library has hundreds of board games and a knowledgeable staff, ready to help you dive into the next big thing within your circle of friends. Of course, if you prefer, you can just puzzle out the rules on your own, or in conjunction with other con-goers. I know from experience that this is, at least for some games, half the fun!

With hundreds of board games on offer, Foam Brain Games could have just called it a day, but instead, it's offering up daily events featuring some of your favorite board games. Check out the full schedule on the Expo site, or just scroll down!
