The one-day and two-day registration allows you to play in games on the day (or days) you pick. The three-day registration allows you to play in games Friday evening through Sunday. The four-day registration allows you to play in games Thursday evening through Sunday. The four-day registrations also come with $20 worth of food certificates which can be spent at the hotel restaurant/room service, while the three-day registrations come with $15 worth. There are no food certificates with the one-day or two-day registration.
After you've registered, we'll notify you when the games for the Con are available on our website, and you get to pick those you'd most like to play in each slot. You do not have to pay a per game fee - your registration lets you play in as many slots as you'd like on the day or days covered by your registration type. Once the game book is available, we ask you to send us your list of possible games (we advise picking more than one in each slot, in case your first choice is full). For more info on the game selection system, see the game scheduling web page.
After the game selection deadline is past, we will assign your games. Once we have everyone scheduled, we send you the list of your games, and we send the GMs the lists of their players, so any prep for the game can be done before the con, giving everyone more playing time.
If you are interested in bringing someone under 18 to Ambercon, please contact us. We have allowed attendees who are under 18, but with conditions and permission of the event GMs, and we are not currently prepared to accommodate attendees under 13. Have your parent or legal guardian e-mail the Con Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
We always need more games! If you are a Game Master, please consider running one or more games at Ambercon. The players at Ambercon are, generally speaking, experienced diceless role players who are looking to have fun with others in games. They, and we, are always looking for new games, new game masters, new ideas, new approaches. So, if you GM, give it a try, run a game. Please submit a game via our online game submission form.
