PA’s Longest-Running Video, Board Game Convention Returns to Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks


After a year-long break due to the pandemic, TooManyGames, Pennsylvania’s longest-running video and board game convention hs leveled up and returned to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks over the weekend, writes Matteo Iadonisi for 6abc.


The convention is organized by Ryan Schott and Paul Truitt along with their wives.

It originated as a small retro gaming event and family business and has since leveled up to become a must-visit destination for fans of video games from across the country.

“It’s a Philadelphia home-grown thing where everyone’s welcome and everyone can have a good time,” said Schott.

During the event, fans flock to the Oaks venue to find rare games, intricate artwork, and custom-made apparel in its unique marketplace.

“We were off in 2020, but it’s a lot of fun to be back and as big as it had been after a year off,” said Schott.

Schott saw the pandemic delay more as a challenge than any kind of setback. So he was determined to bring the convention back bigger and better than ever.

“It’s great to take a passion and turn it into something you can share with your friends and family,” said Schott.
