About this event

Building on last year's success, and recognizing that the pandemic still carries a lot of risk for gathering in person, we're once again going online for Go Play NW 2022! We've put a lot of work into setting up a Discord server with the tools we'll need to get people together into games and keep things running safely and smoothly. This event will include both games scheduled in advance and pick-up games organized during the event through "the donut" pitch sessions.

To provide the best experience possible, attendance at this event is limited to 80 people on Saturday and 80 people on Sunday. A waiting list is available if the event sells out.

Schedule

We'll be kicking things off on Friday, June 3 at 5:30 PM Pacific with our "lobby con" social gathering and check-in event. We do urge everyone to attend if possible, as the more people we can get checked in on Friday, the less time we have to spend on Saturday and Sunday with check-ins before we start the games. The Friday event will run at least until 8:30 PM.

Saturday June 4 and Sunday June 5 will have similar schedules: a morning session from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM, a lunch break, and an afternoon session from 3:30 PM to 7:30 PM.

Online Venue

Go Play NW 2022 is hosted on Discord. In order to participate, you will need to have a free Discord account, which you can create on the Discord registration page or in the Discord app. If you need help creating a Discord account or installing and downloading Discord, see the Getting Started section of the Discord Basics support pages. We will provide information about joining the event's Discord server closer to the date of the event.

Ticket Options

For this event, we are trying out a pay-what-you-will model, to reduce the financial barrier for attending. We're offering two ticket types for each day, Saturday and Sunday: a wholly free ticket that will allow you to register for the event without paying anything, and a donation-based pay-what-you-will ticket that does require you to pay some amount to complete registration. We're suggesting $12 per day as a donation.

Note that whichever ticket you choose, attendance at Friday's lobby con is included at no additional cost. You do need to choose both a Saturday ticket and a Sunday ticket in order to attend sessions on both of those days.

Financial Support

Revenues from this event go towards our annual organizational expenses; the particular expenses to set up and run this event; and our foundation funds so that we can host in-person events again as soon as it's safe to do so—hopefully next year! Revenues also allow us to sponsor attendees in need, invite guests to facilitate games, and pay consultants for our work on improving diversity and accessibility.

For more information about our funding, please see our blog post "A note on funding for Go Play NW".

Go Play NW is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(7) social club, and incorporated in the state of Washington as a non-profit organization.
