Registration for Go Play NW 2012 is now open, and we’ve already gotten our first batch of registrations. If you’re a Go Play NW veteran, you might have noticed that a few things are different this year. If you’re new to Go Play NW, you’re probably wondering “what do I do next?”
First of all, the best place to get started with your Go Play NW experience is the forums on this site. That’s where people will start talking about the games they’d like to play or facilitate. There’s a place to introduce yourself. Chime in and let us know who you are!
The Friday Night Feast is a growing Go Play NW tradition. On Friday night before the con, we’ll have a catered BBQ and a few hours of gaming. This year gaming and the feast are not separate ticket items. This greatly simplifies our management process and makes purchasing tickets simpler. You can always contact us if you need special arrangements.
We also have dorm rooms available on campus for con attendees. These are either single or shared rooms. You can request a roommate when you buy your tickets, or trust to the draw. If you don’t have a roommate in mind but don’t trust your luck, the forums are a good place to find a roommate before you buy your tickets.
Also this year, lunch at Seattle University’s Cherry Street Market café is included with the price of admission. If you’re rooming on campus, you’ll also get breakfast included. This is part of our deal with Seattle University. We hope that having a nearby common place for meals will help people maximize their gaming time and create opportunities to meet some of the other gamers somewhere other than around the gaming table.
As we get closer to Go Play NW time, we’ll talk about some other important topics, like how we do game sign-ups and ad-hoc gaming at the con.

Registration for 2012 is now open!

Go Play NW 2012 registration is now open! With a return to our original location at Seattle University, this is shaping up to be an amazing Go Play NW. We’ve got a few interesting changes this year.
First and most importantly, this year’s location once again includes on-site overnight accommodations in the Seattle University dorms. We’ve got a great price for this, so it’s a really good deal for both out-of-towners and locals as well. Check out the ticketing page, linked below, for details.
Second, as part of our deal with the University, lunch in Seattle University’s Cherry Street Market cafe is included in the price of admission for all attendees. And if you’re renting a room on campus for the con, you’ll also get breakfast at the cafe. We’ll have more details on the meals as we get closer to the date.
Finally, we’ll also be having an outdoor BBQ for the Friday Night Feast this year! To make ticketing and management simpler, Friday night gaming and the BBQ are included in one price.
Visit our registration page to purchase tickets.
Feel free to contact us with questions or comments at info at goplaynw.org. We look forward to seeing you from June 29th to July 1st at Seattle University!
