We remain in the Atlanta Hilton minus the Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Gamingsection we call “Online Gaming” or “MMOs.” They are down in the Sheraton again. Really, it’s justone block south and the fresh air and short walk will do you good.We’ve even included maps, detailing which floor and what not various gaming events are beingheld on. We’ve got signs as well to help direct you to the proper floor and room.Most games, not all, run under our four hour session system. It’s worked for years and years andsince we’ve ALL memorized the session times, it is too late to change now. If a given event showsno duration assume it is three and a half or four hours. If there is no cost listed, assume it is free.

Ideally tournament judges will manage their time so that each game is finished with fifteenminutes left in the session allowing everyone time to get to the next game. Large tournaments insome of the gaming areas do not follow this pattern, and some games run over one and a half ortwo sessions which is usually noted in the description area for that event. When you are lookingat events in the listings, you will see that events are typically referred to by their session numbersand not the day or time.The friendly staff at Gaming Registration should also be able to answer any questions you mighthave or help you find the answers you need. Gaming Registration will be open Thursday evening foryou early birds, we’re thinking eightish, dress is informal, gifts of food and beverage welcome, andat 8:00 AM every morning of the convention. Gaming Registration is located in the Galleria in theAtlanta Hilton. After you descend the stairs into the Galleria level, hang a left and look straight ahead.In order to play in most events you will need an event ticket. Most event tickets cost $3.00, butthere are some free demonstration games and a few are more expensive. There are also CollectableCard Games that charge more but that ticket usually includes the cards you will use in your game.You can also purchase generic tickets that are usable at any event. If an event is sold out you canshow up for that event with a generic ticket and if anyone with a “real” ticket for that event doesnot show up you will be able to step in. This is particularly true for the larger events where there ismore of a chance of a no show or cancellation.People often ask why Dragon*Con charges for tickets, and we answer this question the same waywe have for years and years (it’s kind of a tradition) and there are two major reasons. The first isto fund prizes for the events. We award “Dealer Coins” to the winners of some events that can beused as money in the Exhibition Hall in the Marriott. For some of the major events we have plaquesand awards made. The second reason is to insure attendance of events. We’ve learned that playersare much more likely to show up for a game if they’ve already spent $3.00 on a ticket. We triednot charging for events and signed up players on registration sheets in the past. However, manyplayers signed up for everything they were remotely interested in, and then only showed up forthe games they truly were interested in playing. This was unfair to fellow gamers and judges whowould never know if all the names on a given registration sheet would show up. We recommendthat gamers arrive at their event 10 minutes before the scheduled start time. At 10 minutes afteran events scheduled start time you may lose your spot to someone with a generic ticket. We try tobe accommodating to people running late but it’s not always possible.We have the Walk of Fame on the 2
nd
floor plus other tracks that share common interests withgaming. Remember, the MMO track is just one block south at the Atlanta Sheraton. No, you don’tneed to ride the shuttle bus there but you could if you wanted.
