PC gamers and console gamers unite! If you're into games of any kind, you'll want to be here this weekend.

The annual Gem State Gaming Convention is coming to the Boise Wyndham Garden Hotel this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In addition to informative panels about video games and board games alike, you'll also have opportunities to meet game designers, try out new games, and win a ton of free stuff.

If you're not into video games, worry not. There's plenty of things to see for fans of board games and card games as well, including meeting Tucker Smedes, the founder of CardLords.

Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased here.

If you can't make it to the convention but still need to get your game on, here's some of our favorite arcade games at both Space Bar and Grinkers.
