Description

Icrontic's Tiki Getaway

It's our 16th annual celebration of gaming and friendship in Detroit! Bring your friends and introduce them to why we save up vacation days every year. The venue is our historic home near the heart of the city in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. Tour Detroit, play games, enjoy amazing food, and buckle in for more than three days of wall-to-wall fun curated by your hosts.

This year's theme is the Icrontic Tiki Getaway, so maybe pack a bathing suit. The schedule features a high-ropes course challenge and a visit to the iconic and beloved Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, full of gaming and novelty wonders of a bygone era. There will be a self-contained D&D campaign, a Pokemon hunt, a Magic: The Gathering draft, and a pile o' video game tournaments to enjoy. Whether this is your first year or 16th, there will be something new for everyone to enjoy.

Costs

This event is a non-profit group effort and heavily subsidized by your hosts. All participants will receive a t-shirt with the event logo, a pint glass with the event logo etched in it, and an official event badge. Perhaps more! All proceeds go to event costs, upgrading event infrastructure for the future, and keeping Icrontic.com online the rest of the year.

Events with extra costs are built right into this registration so look for them! This is the only signup! Ever! Please read details about each option (including its scheduling) carefully. Additionally:

  1. Several events are limited capactity. First-come, first-serve. We'll use a waitlist when events are full on the forum, so check there.
  2. Malty & Bagel Passes are non-refundable and no, you can't buy them later. They're great values, just do it.
  3. If you voluntarily withdraw from an extra event, we will only refund you if a replacement takes your spot.
  4. If you change your mind AFTER registration and want to be added to an extra, you will be put on the waitlist. Contact Lincoln on Icrontic.com.

Tickets are choose-your-price; they all get you exactly the same thing! If this is your first time and you're a little skeptical of all this, don't hesitate to buy the discount "First-Timer" ticket for a low-cost introduction to the community. We're sure you'll be back next year.



Raffle

Tickets will be awarded for participation in sanctioned gaming and other events. Prizes each have their own raffle jar. Write your name on your tickets (use BOTH in each pair) and deposit them by 9 PM Saturday for the drawing. All prizes are donated.

Bring

  • Computer (laptop preferred) WITH 10+ ft ethernet cable AND power strip.
  • Headphones (no speakers, please).
  • Cash for food (check splitting).
  • Your own non-liquor drinks (beer, wine, mead, cider are welcome).
  • House guests: Your own toilletries. We provide towels, linens, and pillows to the best of our ability.

No spare computer peripherals or cords are provided. If you forget soap, toothbrush, or razor, we DO have those available. See? Priorities.

Accomodations

You MUST read the House Guest Expectations & Information for house info even if you don't plan to sleep there.

Some Icrontic members recommend Courtyard by Marriott in Dearborn, which is about a 20 minute drive from ICHQ. There are also a wide variety of hotels close to ICHQ but hotels in the downtown Detroit area are pricey. If convenience trumps cost, please consider Trumbull & Porter (closest), Doubletree, Marriot Downtown Detroit, or Holiday Inn downtown.

Also consider AirBnB options as many Icrontians have found great success in the neighborhood. The neighborhood here is Woodbridge, but Corktown and Midtown are also both very close and safe areas. If you stay at an AirBnB outside Woodbridge, talk to us about your parking situation so we can recommend your safest option. Remember: this is a big city! Leave nothing in your car, ever.

Communication

There will be a chat during the event at icrontic.com/chat - stay tuned for on-the-fly updates and sophomoric humor. Check in regularly during the event.

Visiting the house during Expo for more than an hour requires a ticket - yes, even you, my darling - and even when less than an hour it requires the advance permission of the house residents.
