What Go Play NW is all About

Tony Tony
May 22

Every year we have some new people join our community, and even old hands sometimes have questions.

Our focus at Go Play NW is getting together to make friends and play games. That’s why Go Play NW always has a mix of pre-scheduled games and loosely organized pickup gaming. Scheduled gaming is organized through the forums. In a couple of weeks, we’ll open up scheduling forums where anyone can offer games and sign up to play.

Pick-up play is organized in two ways. First, there will be a table where facilitators can post games at any time during the con. Participants can then sign up to join those games. There will also be a short pre-slot pickup session before each gaming block for people who haven’t signed up for anything in that slot.

At Go Play NW, everyone makes the fun together. Thing about brining a game or two that you can facilitate or run, even if you don’t schedule it ahead of time. If you’re planning on doing some pick-up gaming, come ready to try something new.

See you in June!

Good news everyone, registration is open for Go Play NW 2015.

Better news, thanks to the success of Go Play NW, we’ve been able to keep most of our prices the same as last year! The only exception is the one-day ticket, which costs $5 more.

Ticket options for Go Play NW include the Friday Night Feast, an informal meal gathering and one slot of gaming on the Friday night before Go Play. There are also dorm rooms available for overnight stays on the Seattle U Campus for a very reasonable price. You can also request an additional evening’s stay if you’re traveling out on Monday and don’t want to cut your gaming short.

Venue Changes for 2014

Jun 26

Hi All, a reminder that we have some changes in our venue this year, and some more details on the location.

Unfortunately, the Campion ballroom is not available for gaming on Saturday and Sunday this year. Instead, gaming will take place in Casey Hall, a separate building a short distance across campus from the Campion Hall dormitories. There will be copious signage and maps posted in various locations to help you navigate.

We have a variety of rooms available to us in Casey, including one large room with multiple tables, an indoor atrium with lots of room and casual seating, a few smaller rooms with 2-4 tables each, and outdoor balcony with seating, and private conference rooms that are good for large groups or groups that want quiet and privacy.

Badge pickup will still be in Campion Hall, as that’s where the Seattle U staff are located to check people in and handle parking, etc.

We think this is going to be a great set up for Go Play, but it is different for last year, and not nearly as central. Let’s all make sure we help our neighbors navigate and make this a great Go Play. We’ve got a few volunteers helping us out this year, so don’t hesitate to ask if you need any help at the venue!

And as always, you are free to use the casual spaces in the Campion lobby for gaming as long as the other guests aren’t disturbed, however scheduling and the Donut will be in Casey Hall.
