Final donation tally: $4650

We made the donation to MEOW Cat Rescue today to the tune of $4650.00. That's going to make for a lot of kitty food, medical care and happy kitties.

When you add in the donations in the donation jar in the kitty room and the company-matched funds, it will most likely push the donation amount over $5000! Thank you to everyone who made this event such a success! We'll be back next year, but you can keep in touch throughout the year by coming to our monthly events. You can keep up with the latest by joining this Facebook group.

Some very early numbers

Folks, we haven't factored in the net revenue from ticket sales yet, but donations today alone topped $3200. There's a decent chance that we will eclipse $4000 total. It always takes about a week for the dust to settle on these, but... wow! Just shows again how awesome the tabletop gaming community is.

Happy TableTop Day! Here's some info for checking in

Well, it's upon us! Happy TableTop Day!

We will be printing up the attendee manifest this morning at 9:00 AM. If we still have tickets left after that time, you'll still be able to purchase them online. We'll be checking in folks electronically from 11:00 to 11:30, so we'll be able to find you in the system. After 11:30, we will hand check-in over to the club, and they will only have the printed manifest. Therefore, please make sure you print and bring your ticket if you purchase it after 9:00 this morning and plan on arriving after 11:30.

There will be an attendant in the 5th Avenue lobby who will let you up on the elevator. Check-in will be on either the 40th or 75th floor. If you get to 40 and see nobody, take the elevator up to 75. We will check you in there. Tickets at the door are $50 CASH. The clever gamer who wishes to purchase tickets last minute will do so electronically and save themselves some money.

See you all soon!

Floorplan, parking and other important stuff

TableTop Day is almost here! Here's some information for you for Saturday. First of all, here is this year's floorplan. Click on it for a bigger image.



We don't have the northeast rooms this year, but we do have the southeast rooms. The kitties will be in the Board Room (southeast corner office) on Saturday. Very Important Kitties!

Parking: Your best bet is to park in the Columbia Tower Club garage. It's a flat $9 for the whole day. Just be sure you're out of there by midnight (which shouldn't be a problem, since the event ends at 11:00) or you will be charged BIG bucks (like $30-$40).

Public Transportation: The closest bus stop is the Pioneer Square Transit Tunnel station. It's 2 blocks up the hill from there.

Check-in: Doors open at 11:00 sharp on Saturday for main session/all session ticketholders. It's not required, but it helps a lot if you have a printed copy of your ticket when you check in. We will have a check-in station on the 40th floor from 11:00 until 11:30. If you arrive after that, proceed to the 75th floor and see the concierge desk, which will be on your right as you exit the elevator. For evening session only ticketholders, you will also check in at the concierge on 75. Evening session attendees may start showing up any time after 4:30.

If you have any questions, please email Matt at dawgsledevents@gmail.com. Thanks, and see you Saturday!

Game of the Day: Five Tribes

Today's Game of the Day episode, Five Tribes from Days of Wonder, just so happens to be today's actual new TableTop episode! In this meeple-intensive worker placement game, you are assuming the role of potential successors to the recently deceased Sultan. It's a heavy game, but in TableTop fashion, it's one that can also appeal to the casual gamer. Who has what it takes to ascend to the throne? Find out on today's episode, Five Tribes!
