What time can we get in? What time does registration open? What time does everything close?
These sorts of answers can be found on our overview schedule: http://springfieldgame.com/project/overview-schedule/
Something WE HAVE TWEAKED … normally we don’t plan on any activities beginning until 12PM on Friday, but we had some eager GMs ready to start running games on Friday at 10AM. So … soon as we get registration open at 10AM (maybe a few minutes earlier) you can zip right inside and get into some games! Yeah!!
If you were wondering …. “When is G.A.M.E. EXPO Year 9?” …. first … crawl out from under the rock … then … look at our website and Facebook pages. LOL! It’s right there. :-D. 7 days to go, and yes, we get these questions. 😀
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.
Exhibitors, Creators, Clubs & Orgs — BRING YOUR OWN EXTENSION CORDS to G.A.M.E. next week. Please. For the event as a whole we have some but they will be used for; Electronic Gaming, Concessions, Registration, The Lair, Gaming HQ, Media Room, etc. We have a lot of areas that will need the cords WE BRING.
There are outlets on every column and the walls so power can be reached, but you need to bring your OWN cord. Might need a LONG cord in some cases. Be prepared.
We will have rolls of tape at Registration that you can use — and BRING BACK (or we will hunt you down). We want to make sure that ALL CORDS TAPED DOWN. Even if they run behind your tables or booth area, please TAPE DOWN YOUR CORDS. Thanks.
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.
