What is Go Play NW About?

Jun 19

Go Play NW is about meeting friends and playing games. To help make that happen, we have a mixture of scheduled games and pick-up gaming in every slot. Since our focus is on gaming, we don’t have any panels or vendor rooms, though if you want to organize a formal meetup or panel, you’re welcome to do so.

Scheduled gaming occurs through our forums. If you’re wondering what games to bring, or if there’s a particular game you want to play, head over the Brainstorming forum. The Brainstorming forum is a good place for people who want to play the same games to meet.

Scheduled gaming is also organized through the forums. If you have a game you want to run or facilitate, consider posting it in the scheduling forum.

Pickup gaming occurs in every slot with an informal organizing session at the beginning of the slot. This is a time to offer games, find out what people are facilitating, and get involved.

Go Play NW runs on attendee participation. If you come ready to have fun and possibly offer to run or teach a game or two yourself, it makes the event better for everyone.

See you in July!

Tickets on Sale! (and a change to the schedule)

Go Play Tickets are now on Sale!

Tickets are now available for Go Play NW, July 7-9, 2017. We’ve got a few changes in the works this year, but first, here’s something that’s staying the same: membership prices will not go up this year. We’ve worked hard to keep Go Play NW as affordable as possible, and in that vein, Go Play memberships are will cost the same this year as last year. Room prices have risen slightly to meet increasing costs.

And another big change this year: the Go Play NW feast has been moved to Saturday. Why are we moving the feast? One of the biggest reasons is that our community is growing and changing. Every year we have more people coming to Go Play. More and more of those people are completely new to our community. That’s why we want to have the feast on Saturday, our biggest day in terms of attendance–to give everyone a chance to meet and get to know each other in an informal setting.

We will have more details on the schedule soon.
