Gaming Room Rules

– All equipment belong to the con or staff.  Treat all equipment, consoles, tvs, and games with care as if they were your own personal belongings. Failure to follow this rule can result in removal from tournaments/events, Gaming room, or the convention.

– Most VG stations are set up for free play.  To check out a video game and controller at the check out table, one badge is needed to check out games.  In rare circumstances, we may have time limits for specific stations depending on volume and capacity of free play area. Same procedure applies to available Tabletop games for free play.

– No open food or drinks at any of the free play or tournament stations.  Food and drinks are allowed in the spectator area.  No open food or drinks on tabletop gaming tables as well.

– Sign ups for VG tournaments will be open online in the coming months as well as at the convention.  Sign ups for Gaming room events and tabletop tournaments will be at convention only.

– Most importantly, enjoy yourself and have fun!
