I have posted the tentative event schedules for Publisher/Designer Speed Dating for Origins, GenCon, and BGG.CON

https://www.facebook.com/groups/GameDesignersGuild/events/


These events always result in 2-5 games being signed by publishers!

I see them now. I joined, but they didn't show up until I was approved.

Thanks!

I joined via the Facebook group. Is that all that needs to be done as of right now, or is there anything else I need to do?

Well join the event too, but yeah, nothing to do right now till I announce dates for the tickets to be on sale. You will be expected to show off a complete and play-tested game though - no rough prototypes or ideas.

It would appear (as some has reported it - I can't verify it not having an official ticket) that the online registration for Origins Speed Dating has opened. Please buy only 1 ticket (your co-designers don't need a ticket). The publishers will be mostly the same and so there is no need to go another night with the same game. Also if you have a second game, bring a flyer with you - as for now we're not allowing you to sign up for two nights to show two different games. If there is still room in a week or two you can. Of course Origins told me nothing and I have no real control over someone buying more then one ticket, so please be nice.


I also got confirmation that the tickets for the GenCon event will go on sale on Sunday the 25th at 12 noon EST which is 11am CST and 9am PST. Again, please only purchase 1 ticket at this time. I expect to sell out in a few days, so I would try to make plans to buy your ticket early.

We now have enough Publishers to open up 6 more tables on Thursday, 4 tables on Friday, and 2 tables on Saturday. I will be pre-purchasing these tickets so there is nothing for you to buy at GenCon's website. I am doing this so that I can pre-screen the additional 12 participants for games that are more fitting for the publisher's in attendance.

If you want a ticket and have not gotten one yet, then you MUST fill out this survey. It's not first come first serve, so take your time. But I'll be reviewing them starting the 28th of July.
