Tomato Fest – Limited Hours

Tomato Art Fest Logo

The annual Tomato Art Fest is happening in Five Points in East Nashville on August 9 and 10th. It’s an exciting time, but also a very crowded one in Five Points. In order to ensure the best experience for all our guests, the game library will not open on Friday or Saturday until 6 pm. We’d love for you to come game with us that weekend – make plans to come out in the evening and play!

Catan Qualifier – Final Standings

After three rounds of qualifiers, the final standings are linked below. The Top 16 finishers are invited back to Game Point on Tuesday, February 19th for the Semifinal and Final Rounds. Come out to watch and root on our top players!

PLEASE NOTE: our ultimate winner must be over 18 and a US citizen; if that disqualifies you for any reason, please let us know.

If you are outside the top 16, feel free to show up as a potential alternate. If a top 16 finisher fails to show, we will take the next highest finisher that is present on Tuesday evening. Thanks and good luck!

Catan Qualifier – Standings Update

We have had two very competitive rounds of qualifiers for the Game Point Catan Championship. The top 16 players will be invited back on February 19th to play in the semifinals and then the final game to crown the Game Point Catan Champ – who will go on to compete in the U.S. National Championship! Our final qualifier is Sunday, February 17th. Good luck to all the competitors!

The link below is to the current standings. One player had both scores in the top 16, so their lower score is filled grey as it will not count. Just a reminder: we take each person’s best score from any one of the three nights.
