Some important upcoming dates for registration and refunds:

  • May 31: Last day to order or refund t-shirts
  • June 8: Last day to sign-up for or refund the Friday Night Feast
  • June 15: Last day to register online (walk-ins allowed if there are still remaining tickets which is looking less and less likely)

We’re sorry, but we can’t refund t-shirts or the Friday Night Feast after their respective cut-off dates because we’re placing the orders with the vendors immediately.

We only have 20 registrations left for GPNW 2010. Get yours here.
As we posted earlier, we’re well past 2009’s attendance that for those of you keeping track was 75. Hugo House is bigger than Freehold (just look at the pictures), so there is room for more attendees than last year, but registrations are going fast. As with every year, the rate of registration increases the closer we get to the event. At this point, it’s on track to sell out.
Just about everyone has signed up for dinner which is pretty exciting. I know it’s the lure of game-inspired desserts.

Monday was supposed to be the day the Early Bird registration period ended and the ticket price went up.
But we were sitting around talking about how money’s tight for a lot of folks “in these troubling economic times,” and the Early Bird discount started to sound like a catch-22: people who were tight on cash might not have the money on hand to buy a ticket early, but if they were forced to wait the price would go up. Ouch.
So we made a command decision: this year we’re keeping the price where it is all the way up to the event. Just a little gift, from us to you.
Fair warning though: if you want to come, buy a ticket as soon as you can. We already have more registrations than the entire attendance of GPNW 2009, and it’s still three weeks away. It’s going to sell out.

Were you at Go Play NW in 2007? If so, you can help us out! Way back in 2007 we didn’t use nifty tools like online forums for scheduling. As a result, we don’t really know what games were played. We’re reconstructing events on the Go Play NW forum for historical purposes. Please come and tell us what you played in 2007!
And while you’re at it, let us know about pickup games you played in which may not be recorded in the archives for other years. We’ve all had some great times at Go Play NW and it would be really great to have a complete archive to reminisce, ruminate, and boast over.

We’re putting together a social meetup before GPNW so that people can socialize, catch up, kick around ideas for games, and maybe meet some people they haven’t met yet. Yes, and drink beer. Think of it as a pre-Go Play warmup.
Sunday May 23rd is looking like the date, and venues are being kicked around right now. You got fingers, you can type, so you can vote too y’know.

The Go Play NW 2010 t-shirt is here! John decided to pay homage to the ol’ Sasquatch for our fourth year, and just check out the results.
Register and get your very own. If you’re already coming, it’s not too late to add t-shirts to your registration (order by May 24).
For everyone who can’t make it or who wants alternate apparel, we’ll have a link soon to the online shirt store.

The Go Play NW forums are up! Brainstorm games, share cool places to eat, or just weep about how long you have to wait until the fun starts.
There’s a separate forum RSS feed, plus you can see the latest posts on the right hand side of this page. See, there they are!
We’ve also made forums for all the previous years to archive all the fond memories. If you have old discussions from other forums, blog posts, pictures, etc., make a thread, put up a link and share the love.
Why So Yellow?
Anyone can join the forums, but we configured it so that posts by users registered for GPNW 2010 look different from those who aren’t. That way you’ll know if the person you’re talking to is even committed to coming.
When you sign up for the forums, we’ll check to see if you’re registered. If you use the same email to sign up on the forums as you did when you registered for the event, we’ll be able to match you up. If we miss you, drop us a line and we’ll tag you proper.

My little heart is leaping with joy that Hugo House has a water fountain. Huh? Shouldn’t I be more excited by the gaming spaces?
Oh yeah… gaming spaces… sure… but…
<she flashes back to 2009>
Filling the water jugs at 7:30am for the daily drive-by assault to chuck them at the theatre from my double-parked car. Vigilantly monitoring water levels all day with a steely Fremen eye.
Oh no, sir. Not this year. We have terraformed this desert planet.
