The Terrebonne Games Expo returns to Houma, LA on June 24, 2018, at the Terrebonne Parish Main Library. The Expo will begin at 3:00 P.M. and will include board games, card games, computer games, and life-sized games, as well.
Gamers of All Ages Welcome
All age gamers are welcome at this event and especially younger age gamers. In past expos, life-sized games have included jumbo Jenga, giant dominoes, and mega Snakes and Ladders. Vendors from various gaming companies from all across Southern Louisiana will also be on site for the event.
Get Your Cosplay On
One of the highlights of the Terrebonne Games Expo is cosplay. If you’re not familiar with cosplay, it’s basically advanced character costuming. Participants dress like their favorite characters from various games, videos, and/or shows. It’s highly encouraged at the expo and even if you don’t choose to participate – it makes for fun people watching.
Pokémon, Magic the Gathering, & More
Come to the Expo and participate in a friendly competition in Pokémon, Magic the Gathering, and other card-based games. There will also be computer games on display and past Expos have featured retro video games.
“Build Your Own” Game
Last year’s Terrebonne Games Expo featured a workshop where you could learn to build your own board game. In addition, the gaming vendors at the expo will have staff on hand to explain how to play any of the established games if you are new to the gaming community.

More About the Terrebonne Games Expo
The Terrebonne Games Expo was inspired by the popularity of gaming at the Terrebonne Parish Library’s annual comic con event. The library wanted to create an event specifically centered on gaming and bring gamers of all ages together.
While gaming is fun, it also builds communication, critical thinking, strategy, and logic skills. If you’d like more information on the Terrebonne Games Expo, contact Naomi Magola at 985-876-5861.
