Hey Game Masters! If you want to take a peek at your table assignments you can now see on our schedule where you will be holding your games! See you Friday! http://springfieldgame.com/project/gaming-table-schedule/
Need to clarify something here. If you pre-registered as a GM and submitted your games, those are now on the website. The window to pre-register is closed. HOWEVER, you can still run games at G.A.M.E. EXPO!
These are referred to as “pick-up” games. Once you’ve arrived at G.A.M.E. EXPO, head for the Gaming HQ table.
If all you need is a table, and you have all the players and such, then you can work with the staff to schedule a table. We have PLENTY.
If you want to POST a game for sign-up and have players join you, then we have some simple paperwork to fill out and then you’ll have a sign-up sheet created and a table scheduled. Ta-da!
We have over 140+ pre-scheduled games, but we will have a LOT of pick-up games. So join us and have fun!
We’ve retooled our events schedule so that each category of events have their own page. Turns out when you have 150+ events it freaks out the plug-in, with the way we wanted them displayed. So, now when you go to the ALL EVENTS SCHEDULE page you’ll see a series of buttons to dive into specific categories. If you have any questions / concerns / issues — please let us know.
We did a walk through of the Expo Center today. Some minor tweaking of the room map layout. Please see page with the map. http://springfieldgame.com/project/year-9-room-layout-map/
NOT TO WORRY GAMEMASTERS!!
We have all your games. If you scheduled it — it will appear on the schedule. Just give us a couple days here to sort out an issue.
We’ve had SO MANY games this year we ran into a software issue. The plug-in we use “Chronosly” appears to have a limit of 40 games per page / category. Well, in the Role-Playing Game category we have 69 games! So right now only the first 40 games in each category are showing.
We have a work around. We will be changing our layout schedule so that each category has its’ OWN page. SO … you will see “Boardgames” and click on that — then on the “Boardgames” page — all the games will appear. We tested this on the RPG games and the limit of 40 was ignored and all 69 appeared.
Just going to take us a couple of days to rearrange all of this — right now we are putting final touches on OTHER things that have to go to print TODAY. So … we will announce when this layout change has taken place.
GAMEMASTERS — not to worry. If you find any missing games (that are not on the website) we will get it posted / assigned / scheduled before the event begins on Friday 10/6 — we will take care of you.
We realize that it takes a lot of books, papers, maps, dice, minis and other stuff to run a great RPG! When you’re at a convention it can be hard to lug that stuff around all day. We want to do our best to help. This year, behind the Gaming HQ table we will have LIMITED table spots to store SOME stuff for Gamemasters. This space will be first come, first served. We will have X amount of numbered spaces available. We will put your stuff into spot X and give you the token for spot X. Ideally this will be for you to store SOME of your GAMING supplies while you run other games or maybe you have time between games and don’t want to carrying lots of stuff everywhere.
We would prefer that we don’t have GMs leaving stuff with us for 10 hours, but we won’t be timing how long you use a space. Please be courteous of others. If you’re done with your stuff for the day, take it out to your car and free up a space for someone else.
This WILL NOT BE OVERNIGHT storage. At 11:30PM you had best come get your stuff out of GM Storage. Anything left behind when we shut down at midnight will become items we put into the RAFFLE. We will thank you for your donation. 😛 We are joking, but not joking. Don’t leave your stuff with us past 11:30PM.
We are also NOT responsible for valuables. Wallets, money, computers, iPhones, iPods, etc. — keep those with you. We will do our best to guard and keep an eye on all storage items, but we cannot be held accountable if something is missing. So, please keep this in mind.
