Hey everybody, it’s time for gamemasters to start finalizing scheduled games!

If you have offered a game on the forums, please fill out the Go Play NW 2019 Event form BEFORE WEDNESDAY July 3. (

The online form is new this year, and will make things run a lot more smoothly for scheduled games.

We will be printing final forms for the convention on Wednesday. Having GM’s fill out the details for their events will helps us make sure these are accurate and will save the crew a ton of time and work. You will still be able to make adjustments to the printed sheets at the con.

Thanks for your time and for running a game at Go Play NW!

We’re excited to have live streaming of tabletop games from Go Play NW this year, for the second year in a row.

Why streaming? Streaming games helps is a way to share the games that we love with a wider audience, and to let people participate in this in new ways. Streaming expands awareness of the hobby and builds communities beyond the physical limits of our space.

How is Go Play NW supporting streaming? We’ll have a streaming room and some equipment set aside for scheduled streaming of games.

How can I participate if I’m not a streamer? The best way to participate is to join in on Twitch, check out the game, and maybe even chat for a bit. Follow Go Play NW on Twitch at to see who’s streaming or use the Twitch mobile app. We will be streaming games at various times throughout the con.

Can I stream a game? We have limited resources to support streaming from the streaming room. The room is not available without prior scheduling. If you want to use the streaming room, please fill out this online form or email

You don’t have to check with us if you want to stream on your own from another location. Please respect other attendees wishes and always ask before broadcasting anyone.

This year we are re-introducing the Saturday lottery, a staple of many Go Plays past!

In the SAT-02 slot,we will be having the Go Play NW lottery. This takes place of the regular donut. The lottery is an opportunity to meet some new people and possibly play something you’ve never played before. Here’s how it works:

  1. All participants place their badges into the badge bin.
  2. Four badges are drawn. These four gamers will play a game together.
  3. Continue until everyone has a group.

We will have a library of board and role-playing games on hand to help people find something to play.

And if the lottery isn’t your jam, we understand. We also expect to have lots of scheduled games on site or set up through the game scheduling forum.

July 5th Friday Night Dinner

We’re not having a catered feast this year, but that doesn’t mean there’s no opportunity to hang out and meet some new people.

We have reserved a bunch of tables at Rhein Haus for dinner of July 5th from 6-8 pm. This is around the corner from campus at 912 12th Ave. Rhein Haus is an all-ages establishment with a variety of food and drink options. Rhein Haus has big communal tables, so this is a great opportunity to socialize.

Update: Rhein Haus was able to move us to a space on the main floor where there will be more seating, including tables with high-backed chairs for those who find bench seating difficult to use.
