PARTNERS

Foam Brain Games (Website)

In 2009, a group of like minded entrepreneur’s who ran Live Action Roleplaying Games at conventions were looking for ways to expand into other areas in the industry and came up with the idea of selling board games at conventions. From there, Foam Brain Games was born! It soon became our mission to bring interesting, dynamic and high quality dice to convention goers all over the world! We began carrying dice from every manufacturer and expanding our products to include a variety of different dice styles and accessories. Foam Brain games is a company made and ran by con-lovers like you! We treat everyday as a new opportunity for us to share new products designed and developed for game lovers!

Riichi Nomi NYC (Website)

Riichi Nomi NYC was founded in 2020 as a way for New Yorkers to gather and play riichi mahjong on a regular basis. Starting as a small group in Manhattan, the club has blossomed over the past 2 years and now supports a wide cast of regular players from New Jersey to Long Island. We aim to create an enriching and friendly environment where players of different skill levels can come together to learn, play, and socialize. We teach, play, and compete every week in-person and online.
