When would be the deadline to register just as a playtester?

My work situation is a bit up in the air so I don't want to commit until much closer to the event, but if I can make it I'd love to come out.

Playtesters can just show up and enjoy playing some prototypes.

Only designers need to register prior to the event because of table limitations.

Bethany College UnpubMini Designer Preview 1 - Stephenson Brother Games
Stephenson Brother Games will be playtesting Empire.

In an age of exploration, rival empires strive for dominance. Discover new lands. Amass wealth. Gather support. Above all, ensure imperial stability in a time of chaos.

In Empire, players play as colonial European empires. Each player has a set of cards which represents their empire. There are 5 types of cards: support, resource, gold, selection, and empire. Each player begins the game with a few cards of each type. Players can acquire more cards through development, commerce, and exploration.

At the end of the game, the player with the most support wins.
