Scheduled Open Gaming

New for 2014: SCHEDULED Open Gaming ALL WEEK LONG in PARADISE ASSEMBLY!

The new game demonstrations previously called the Sampler Showcase has been cancelled. It is being replaced by more emphasis on individual demos and scheduled Open Gaming opportunities ALL WEEK LONG!

If you've ever bemoaned the difficulty of finding players to play what YOU want to play in Open Gaming, this is your chance. Merely commit to providing the game in question and playing at a specified time in the scheduled demo area of Paradise Assembly, and we will reserve your table plus add your game to the printed, Android and rotating schedules for all to see. We'll even provide signage for your "game event".

The catch? You must commit to it in a timely fashion; i.e., now. You must be a Sustaining or Tribune member by June 1 and you must submit details to CD@boardgamers.org by June 1 to include:

  • Name of published game (limit 1 game); unpublished games must be handled as Commercial Demos.
  • Start Time and length of game (even hours only; no half-hour starts; i.e., 7 PM, not 7:15 or 7:30)
  • Type of table; 8' rectangular or 6' round (or if either is acceptable, indicate so)

The table must be surrendered promptly to the next user before the next reserved timeslot.

Limits:

  • Multi-player games only - must accommodate a minimum of three players
  • One reservation slot per person. Second requests will be honored on a space available basis only after all other primary requests have been fulfilled.

All requests are based on availability. First come, first served.

Suggestions:

  • Submit multiple start times in case your first choice is unavailable
  • A willingness to use either round or rectangular tables will increase your chances of getting a slot
  • The longer your requested time slot, the less your chances of getting a reservation.
  • Avoid high usage time slots. Slots that conflict with Tu17-22 or We17 have little or no chance of acceptance.
