New Partner — Recruits!

Midwest GameFest combines a number of partners under one roof, including ShaunCon, Borderwars, and the Gamer's Haven Game Library. And this year we are excited to announce the addition of Recruits! Recruits is the storied miniatures and tabletop hobby game convention organized by the Lee's Summit High School Organization of Strategic Gamers (OSG) and held for many, many years at LSHS. Due to construction at the high school Recruits is relocating to Midwest GameFest this year! Students 15 and under can continue to enjoy free admission (with an accompanying paid adult) and an assortment of favorite Recruits activities. Needless to say, we are EXCITED!
