Game Theory Events began in 2017 in Houston, Texas when four friends recognized the need for a flexible company with the skills to add or repair gaming programs for existing conventions.
The founders met in 2013 when Joe and Traci Charles were volunteering for Comicpalooza. Joe was managing the gaming track alone that year and met Jason and his wife Anne through a mutual friend. Jason was already running his own game company, D3 Adventures, and quickly volunteered to add his own skills to the Comicpalooza gaming track for 2014. The two of them ran the gaming track for Comicpalooza from 2014 to 2016, growing it by 270% during that time.
Then, in 2017 Joe, Traci, Jason, and Anne decided to pool their talents and form Game Theory Events, whose mission is to promote tabletop gaming in all its diversity through hosting of local game conventions and adding or repairing gaming programs for existing conventions. Game Theory Events focuses on smaller, independent game designers and publishers and plays matchmaker between those in the business and those who wish to enter it.
