GAME REGISTRATION PROCESS – UPDATED

GAME REGISTRATION PROCESS – UPDATED

We are TRYING to make the process to register games easier each year.  Last year we used GrowTix and that system was pretty good, but it involved several screens / steps to get a single game ready.

This year, we have a simpler process and just now eliminated the need for an author account.  Now you just need to have an account with the website and there are over 600 people with accounts from Year 9 and 10.

We have a new video that steps you through this process.  You can see this video at the bottom of the GAME MASTERS page:  https://springfieldgame.com/gamemasters/

The process is basically this:

  • Go to springfieldgame.com and click LOGIN in the lower right menu
  • Either login to your account or register a new account.  (Over 600 people already have accounts with the website)
  • Fill in fields for your game and submit for review.
  • Once approved, you are done!  Promote your event through social media, email, tell your friends!

Remember it really is easy to get a free badge for the weekend!

 

Max Number of Players  X   Max Number of Hours for Game =  Player Hours

 

40 Player Hours = Free badge.

 

MIDNIGHT DEADLINE — EVERYTHING SHUTS DOWN

MIDNIGHT DEADLINE — EVERYTHING SHUTS DOWN

Tonight at midnight we shut down everything.  Game scheduling, Volunteer Applications, Panel Submissions, Ticket Sales, everything.  We have 10 days before the doors open and a lot of details to get in place.  Don’t delay this is your last chance to get everything in.

You will still be able to buy tickets AT THE DOOR starting on Friday at 10AM.

You will still be able to register “pick-up” games at Gaming HQ when you arrive, but only pre-scheduled games received before midnight tonight will qualify GMs for a free badge.

Tuesday the Panel schedule will be final, and our Volunteer schedules will be in the finalization stages.

HURRY! HURRY!

GAME SCHEDULING DEADLINE – 9/24/18!!!

GAME SCHEDULING DEADLINE – 9/24/18!!!

Attention Game Masters, if you want your game to appear on the schedule where everyone can find it on our website and more importantly on the APP!!! — you need to get your games scheduled by Monday 9/24/18 (11:59PM).

The deadline was Friday 9/21/18 but we moved it back to Monday 9/24/18.

Game Masters you can get a FREE BADGE ($30 VALUE) by submitting games worth 40 player hours.  See the website for how this math works.   But it is as simple as a 2 hour game for up to 6 players (12 player hours) ran 3 times (36 player hours) and then a 1 hour game for up to 4 players (4 player hours) for a total of 40 player hours.   That’s just 7 hours of your time to get a free badge!   Henchmen have to work 10 hours (but they also get a lot of perks).

We have an APP!
