Subject to change based on the arrival of our guests, here is the schedule of events! This doesn’t include the gaming competitions, exhibitions, surprises and other activities that are continuous. Only things that happen at a specific time are below. This doesn’t capture the atmosphere at all, for that, see our Event page our media page.
(This is the 2019 Schedule. 2020 will have a similar structure but some changes to the content. Only one meal time is scheduled: Friday night. If you have a VIP ticket you’ll join 60 of us in the Silver Oak and the remaining (majority) of ticket holders have local options such as the hotel restaurant. Other meal times are at your own discretion.)
1pm Doors Open – Set up your computer if you have one, play one of ours if you don’t. Get to know some people.
2pm Game Competition & Workshops Sign Up – Register for any/all of the game competitions and our four workshops. More may be announced on the day.
