Thirteen Weeks

Mar 23

As of last Friday, Go Play NW 2010 was just thirteen weeks away. Which seems like a long time, but blink and you’ll be rolling dice, assuming you remembered to register…
Thirteen weeks also happens to be a quarter of a year, making this the last quarter of the year-long odyssey to bring hawt gaming to the table, yet again.
Were we napping during those other quarters? In a word, no. Okay there was some compulsory recovery-napping right after GPNW 2009 (you too, I’m guessing), but those pictures of the new venue were taken last July, remember? Team Go Play does not sleep.
Tony, Phil or Ping could walk you through the “four seasons of Go Play NW.” Your eyes would bug out. Spoiler: there is some rest and relaxation during season two, but also contracts to sign.

Go Play Brisbane

Are you in Brisbane (or heck, anywhere in Australia and open to road trips)? Make a note that Go Play Brisbane is coming up on March 20.
With a name like Go Play Brisbane, what’s not to like? Then again, if we’re Go Play in the far northwest corner of the globe (assuming you believe in that whole dateline thing), and they’re in the far southeast corner, does that make them our mirror universe evil twin or something? Or are we the evil twin? All I know is that someone is secretly left-handed and sporting a goatee…

So Long, Tables & Chairs

In addition to being an awesome gaming space, there’s another nice thing about our new venue which I’m sure everyone who helped with setup last year will be glad to hear: no table & chair load-in.
That’s right, no hauling splinter-spraying disks of rough hewn lumber up endless flights of stairs in the middle of summer. No fire brigades wrestling with racks and racks and racks of chairs under the cruel lash of Pharaoh.
Richard Hugo House has most of the rooms already set up. They’ve got extra tables and chairs that we’ll bring out as needed, so there will be some setup, but it will be a veritable cakewalk compared to last year.
Oh, and to my brothers & sisters from Table & Chair Deathmarch 2009: much love. Pour some liquor. Peace.
