ATTENTION GMS!  If you have already submitted a game or multiples, we are working on getting these posted within the next week or so.  Thank you for your patience.  You DO NOT need to resubmit with table choices.  We will assign those based on what information we’ve received. You are all good.

Going forward with all submitted pre-scheduled games, this is now the rules below.

As we plan for tables and pre-scheduled games at Year 9, we want to address an issue from Year 8.

We had some games that grabbed tables and did so without checking in at GAME HQ and this screwed up pre-scheduled games and our ability to schedule tables correctly.

For Year 9, as always, pre-scheduled games submitted online get first table assignments.   Pick-up games scheduled during the 3 days of GAME get scheduled by GAME HQ based on available space.

Available table arrangements are:

  • 1 table for up to 6 players
  • 2 tables for 8 to 10 players
  • 3 tables for 12 to 14 players
  • 4 tables for 18 to 20 players

Games larger than 20 players, we will not be able to accommodate.  You’ll need to break these games into smaller groups.

We are very accommodating to pick-up and prescheduled games, but tables must be assigned by GAME HQ.  If you grab tables and chairs your game will not be allowed to be run.   Thanks for you patience and understanding.

Last Minute Booths / Tables Waiting List?

If we have anything to announce it will be a race to see WHO’S THE FASTEST?

We do not have a waiting list for last-minute cancellations and tables or booths opening up.  If you are hoping for any last-minute booths or tables to open up, they very well might.  It happened last year, and it might happen this year too.  Your best bet is to be registered with our site, and the emails that result from a new post will come to you.

We are pleased to announce, Guest of Honor for Year 9, LJ COHEN!

LJ Cohen is a Boston area novelist, poet, blogger, ceramics artist, geek, and relentless optimist. After almost twenty-five years as a physical therapist specializing in chronic pain management, LJ now uses her anatomical knowledge and myriad clinical skills to injure characters in her science fiction and fantasy novels. When not doing battle with a stubborn Jack Russell Terrier mix or her equally headstrong border collie mutt, LJ can be found writing, which looks a lot like daydreaming.
