Results of the GPNW 2018 Feedback Survey

Last year, we asked you to respond to a short survey regarding your Go Play NW 2018 experience. 72 of you responded, and you gave us some great feedback to think about as we start planning for Go Play NW 2019. Thank you for feedback! It has been incredibly helpful to us.

Here’s what we learned:

1. Satisfaction with Go Play NW is high

The first thing we learned is that Go Play NW has a huge amount of good will with the community. On average, you rated Go Play NW 9.8 out of 10. That’s huge! And we’re humbled that people are so happy with Go Play NW.

2. But newcomers have higher expectations

However, we also noticed that first-time attendees were less likely to recommend Go Play NW than any other category, at 8.75 out of 10. We take this as a serious call to action. We are working hard to figure out how we need to change so that we can grow without losing what makes Go Play NW unique.

3. And we have a lot of areas we can improve on

Even though you rated Go Play NW highly, we also got a lot of feedback on what you thought could be better. A large number of people who responded gave us clear, actionable feedback relating to one or more areas we can improve on.

We identified 6 main areas we can improve, based on your feedback:

  • Challenges finding and getting into games through sign-ups or the donut
  • Poor communications from the con or difficulty finding information
  • A need for more quiet gaming spaces
  • The price of the convention
  • The feast and refreshments
  • The desire for a more diverse convention and leadership

As you can imagine, a lot of our discussion and plans for 2019 revolve around these topics. We think that we can improve on every one of these for 2019. But total improvement is going to take a little time. So, we’ve identified a few topics we’re going to concentrate on this year. Expect another post soon on this topic!

Our community is what makes Go Play NW great!

Our volunteers are community members who have chosen to take a special role in our yearly gathering, and we truly appreciate that! that’s why it gives us great pleasure to introduce this year’s volunteer coordinator, Joe England.

Joe is from Bonney Lake, Washington, and he started playing tabletop RPGs with Holmes Basic D&D and then moved on to Gamma World 1st Edition. His favorite RPG is Hollowpoint. Joe has been involved in multiple gaming meetups as an organizer and volunteer mostly in the Tacoma area and at Go Play NW. Go Play is where Joe ran his first giant donut!

Welcome, Joe!

Thank you so much for every facilitator who posted a game in the forums! Go Play NW thrives on the contributions of people like you who offer to run and facilitate games. If you haven’t posted a game, but you are thinking of doing so, now is the time!

We are printing final schedule sheets this weekend. Please check your forum posts and make a note in your top post of who has signed up to be in the game.

The forums will stay active until Go Play NW. This means people can still offer games, discuss them, sign up, and so on. However, we can’t guarantee that anything added to forum posts after Friday will be reflected on the final printed sheet.

See you in 8 days!
