Schedule

 

A weekend of friends getting together to game requires a little structure.

We gather at the Cary House Hotel on Friday night to chat and catch up with each other. There’s no gaming on Friday night, but attendance is mandatory. There are two game sessions on Saturday and two on Sunday. The late Sunday slot is optional. Staying at the venue is not - because that’s part of the immersive experience. Most people who stay through Monday morning gather for a group breakfast at Sweetie Pie’s Bakery & Restaurant.

Friday


7:00PM - Midnight +

Meet & Greet

Hang out with your fellow gamers in the Milton Room—the big room behind the lobby. We’ll be playing some kick-back chill music early and rev it up a little bit late in the evening to keep the energy rolling.

Want to bring your non-gamer significant other? Sure thing. They’re welcome to attend Friday night.

Early Goodbyes

Not everyone can stay late on Sunday. Families, jobs, ya know, life has other demands. Be sure to take a few minutes to send off your fellow gamers before heading off to dinner.

5:30PM - 7:00PM

Dinner

Get out and grab some grub in any of the nearby restaurants. Make reservations to anywhere fancy if you want to be sure to eat casually and get back in time for the Final Session.

7:00PM - 1:00AM

Final Session

5-6 games with a mix of GMs and Players run during this time. This is the time slot GMs should choose if they want to play around with the number of Players at the table. GMs should be flexible as they may not know how many players they will have for their game. Games take place in different rooms in the hotel, depending on how many games run in this slot.
