Hello tabletop gamers!
Tomorrow is the big day, so here are some important information for ticketholders for tomorrow.
General Schedule: Even though we will be able to game for 12 hours straight, in reality, tomorrow is two separate events strung back to back. The first, from 11:00-5:00, is TableTop Day on Top of the World. This is what you paid for. Lunch will be served at 12:30, game demos will be going on all afternoon, kitties will be onsite, etc. The evening event is an expanded version of our monthly game night (CTC Nerd Night XI), meaning that food will be available but is NOT INCLUDED with the purchase price of your ticket for the afternoon event.
Parking: Lots of people have asked about this. Parking in the CTC garage is a flat $9 all day on weekends. We learned the hard way at the last event that staying past midnight means you incur charges for the next day as well, so make sure you keep track of time if you plan to stay late.
Public Transportation: If you will be busing it in, the nearest transit tunnel station is Pioneer Square station. The address of the Columbia Tower is 701 5th Avenue. For those unfamiliar, you may use the King Country Metro Trip Planner to help you plan your route.
Ticketing/Check-in: We will have an electronic check-in station from 11:00-12:00 on the 40th floor (the "transfer floor" at CTC). You'll pick up your wristband (which must be worn during the event) and gaming vouchers (more on them below) at this time. If you plan to arrive after 12:00, be sure to print out and bring your paper ticket. Check-in for late arrivers will be at the 75th floor concierge desk, and will not be electronic.
Speaking of tickets: CTC has granted us 10 more spots, so we have 15 tickets left. The cutoff point is 9:00 AM Saturday. You can still win games if you help us spread the word on this. Please refer to this post for more information. This will close at 5:00 Friday evening, and the drawing will happen tonight.
Gaming Vouchers: For those that purchased them, you will receive 2 $10 vouchers good for purchasing games at The Dreaming's pop-up store at the event. Please keep in mind that these can't be used together on the same game--one voucher per game. Also, if you don't get a chance to use these at the event, they are good for up to a week at The Dreaming's store on University Avenue for any game valued at $30 or more.
Gaming Library: Yes, we will have one. You are also welcome and encouraged to bring your own games. Have fun and enjoy, but please remember to treat other people's games as if they were your own (i.e. obey Wheaton's Law).
Dress Code: The daytime event is a private event, so strictly speaking, there is none, However, we do ask that you make sure that you don't wear anything that muggles will find offensive. If you plan to stay for the evening session, please make sure you adhere to the following: No shorts, no flip flops, no baseball caps, no ripped jeans, no muscle shirts/tank tops, and no vulgar language on your clothing.
Drinks! Drinks will be available for purchase at the event! We have several geek-themed signature drinks. If you missed it, please read this post from last week on our homepage for more info.
Any other questions? Best thing to do is post it to our Facebook event. Someone in the know will usually respond pretty quickly.
