Game Theory Events began in 2017 in Houston, Texas with a mission to promote tabletop gaming in all its diversity through hosting of local game conventions and adding or repairing gaming programs for existing conventions. Our methodology focuses on smaller, independent game designers and publishers and on playing matchmaker between those in the business and those who wish to enter it. | @GameThryEvents |
