Why crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding allows Go Play NW to increase accessibility by reducing our ticket prices while giving out fun rewards to folks for contributing the extra support we need. It also puts funds into our teams' hands sooner than the usual ticket sales process, helping us cover critical expenses, such as the venue deposit, before the event kicks-off.

What crowdfunding platform is Go Play NW using for the campaign?

The Go Play NW 2024 crowdfunding campaign is being conducted through BackerKit.

What kind of rewards are being offered?

Most pledge levels include membership in Go Play NW for 2024 and attendance at the in-person event running July 26-28, 2024. Additional rewards include:

  • A Go Play NW themed dungeon map designed by artist and Go Play NW board member Tony Dowler in digital and risograph poster formats;
  • A 100% cotton canvas tote bag designed by Sovanny Vorn.
  • Opportunities to have your name listed as an event sponsor on a table, a room, or even as a feature in Tony’s dungeon map!

Will Go Play NW 2024 tickets be available after the campaign is over?

If we still have space available, yes! But, the best way ensure you get a ticket is to join our campaign now!

What happens if the campaign is unsuccessful?

We will sell tickets through our usual process here on GoPlayNW.org, but the ticket price will likely increase.

How do I register to attend Go Play NW 2024?

Go to the crowdfunding campaign on BackerKit and pledge at any level that includes a “Go Play NW 2024 membership” and a “Go Play NW 2024 three-day badge.” When pledges are collected after the campaign ends, we will email your confirmation.
