WE NEED YOU – HENCHMEN and GAMEMASTERS!

WE NEED YOU – HENCHMEN and GAMEMASTERS!

Without the support of about 20-30 volunteers, G.A.M.E. EXPO is nearly impossible.  We need volunteers to help out in all areas.  Welcome Desk / Registration, Snack Bar, Gaming HQ, Electronic Gaming, General Support and elsewhere!  Just 10 hours spread out over the whole weekend and you can get a FREE pass to have fun!  Read all about being a HENCHMEN here:  http://springfieldgame.com/volunteer/

Hey Game Masters!  Without your support, we don’t have gaming!  We really need your support and for you to schedule your games right away.  Every year we have hundreds of games played over the weekend!  We are hoping that players this year can find your game online and sign up before the doors open on Friday.  As a GM you get a FREE pass for the weekend for running just a few games.  Come have fun with us!  Read all about it here: http://springfieldgame.com/gamemasters/

PLAYERS CAN PRE-REGISTER FOR GAMES!

HEY PLAYERS!

If you’ve ever attended G.A.M.E. EXPO before you know that you head to Gaming HQ and look for available games and sign up.  You will STILL be able to do that AT our event, but now you can ALSO register ahead of the event opening on Friday.

Go to the Gaming Schedule on our website and you will find yourself on the GrowTix page for G.A.M.E. EXPO.  On this page, you’ll see the 3 schedule days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), and all the games as they start to be submitted by Gamemasters.  Games appear once they are approved and assigned to a table.

When you see a game and click on VIEW button, you’ll see the [REGISTER FOR THIS GAME] button on the pop-up screen.  Pre-Registering before the doors open on Friday, will guarantee you get a spot at the games you want to play.

CALLING ALL GAME MASTERS!

You can get into G.A.M.E. Year 10 for FREE when you pre-schedule games! Without your help in running games, we would not have a gaming convention. As our way of saying “Thanks” we offer GMs free entry!

GM BADGES

To qualify for a Game Master Badge you must pre-schedule 40 player hours of games.  This process is explained below in the steps outlined.

PLAYER HOURS

Starting with Year 10 we are focusing on PLAYER HOURS as the benchmark for a free GM Badge.  Player hours represent the amount of players at your game by the length of the game planned.  This first year we will focus on what is PLANNED to happen, in years to come as we track this system, the results of actual hours played will be used to reimburse GMs or award next year’s badge.  This will mostly apply to new untested GMs.  Those of you who’ve been with us previously, will continue to earn a free badge by scheduling the minimal hours.

DEADLINE

GM Registration Deadline is September 21, 2018.  We will be finalizing schedules and getting programs printed.  Any gaming opportunities after this date will be “pick-up games” during the 3 days of G.A.M.E.   Pick-up games do not qualify for a free GM badge.

SCHEDULING PICK-UP GAMES

SCHEDULING PICK-UP GAMES

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!
