A Go Play NW 2014 Primer

Every year we have some new people join our community, and even old hands sometimes have questions.
Our focus at Go Play NW is getting together to make friends and play games. Our con is designed to mix opportunities for pre-scheduled games and pick-up games. Scheduled gaming is organized through our forums. Once the gaming schedule is posted, we’ll open up scheduling forums where GMs and facilitators can offer games for people to discuss and sign up.
Pick-up play is organized in two ways. First, there will be a table where facilitators can post games at any time during the con. Participants can then sign up to joint he games. There will also be a short pre-slot pickup session before each gaming block for people who haven’t signed up for anything in that slot.
We have a high percentage of indie developers and DIY-ers, but also many traditional gamers, which means there’s always a wide variety of interesting stuff to try out.
