Norwescon Gaming

Welcome to Norwescon Scheduled Gaming!

Each year, we’re proud to host a full weekend of tabletop, card, RPG, and other gaming systems. Later this year we will start looking for GMs (Game Masters) to host games during Norwescon 40 — check back here for more info on running games, or for the final gaming schedule in the spring of 2017!

 GM Registration Deadlines

There are two upcoming registration deadlines that interested GMs should be aware of:

  • January 15, 2017: This is the primary deadline for GMs to be registered with compete game information. GMs who meet this deadline will be listed in the Norwescon electronic and print program guides.
  • March 1, 2017: This is the final deadline to have all game information submitted in order to be scheduled. Any game information received after March 1st will be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis only.

Please contact gaming@norwescon.org to register your gaming sessions!

The full gaming schedule will be up in the spring of 2017. While we’re working on assembling that, we’d like to announce that we will be running a Magic: The Gathering Booster Draft and Drink & Draft, sponsored by Forever Knights! More information on this event will be posted as we get closer to the convention.

Friday 12 p.m. & 4 p.m. 9:30 p.m.
Saturday 12 p.m. & 4 p.m.
Sunday 10 a.m.

Gaming Code of Conduct

We follow Wheaton’s Law: “Don’t be a dick.”

All Norwescon policies and procedures apply, including the harassment policy, weapons policy, accessibility policy, and photography guidelines. Copies of these are available on the Norwescon website, in the pocket program, and in Guidebook. Please take particular note of the beginning of our harassment policy: “Norwescon strives to provide a safe and welcoming space for persons of all descriptions. Everyone should be able to have a great time, in their own way, at the convention—but not at the expense of others. As a community, we insist on behavior that respects the autonomy of each individual member.”

The three accessible games tables in Maxi’s Ballroom may be used for walk-up games, however, if you use these tables you may be asked to move to make space for members with accessibility needs. DMs may also be asked to move their game to an accessible table. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please clean up after yourself and practice good hygiene. Our gaming staff is made of volunteers. Please treat them with respect and follow their instructions. Those who do not follow these guidelines may be asked to leave and not return.
