For more information on pricing and payment deadlines, see this thread: BGG@SEA 2017 Now Available


Place your deposit via the BGG Store

We need to get as many deposits as possible as early as possible so we can keep the right amount of space reserved for us. You are also encouraged to put in your deposit early as stateroom selection will be done in that order. You're certainly welcome to make full payment now as well if you'd like, and it is fully refundable (based on the schedule posted in the threads linked above or on the BGG Store).

We think this pricing is pretty competitive, but if you choose to make stateroom arrangements yourself you can still join our event for a fee of $250 per person. One thing to keep in mind, the first prices you see online generally don't include the following: (which are already built into our stateroom prices)
Taxes, Fees, Port Expenses: approximately $101.40 per person
Pre-Paid Gratuities: approximately $84.00 per person (or $99.75 for OS & GS)

Ok, how do I get in on this?
Simply to go the BGG Store and buy the "Stateroom Deposit" item for the category you wish to reserve. At some point before the final deadline, you will also need to purchase a "Remainder Single/Double/Triple/Quadruple Occupancy" item for that same category. Every reservation must be paid for by purchasing both a "Deposit" item and a "Remainder" item, the latter of which varies based on the number of occupants in the stateroom.

Again, please put in your deposits now as we have to give Royal Caribbean these deposits to reserve the space, and also because you will be able to select your actual stateroom in order of deposit received.

Other questions

Should I make travel arrangements yet?
Personally, I'd wait until about 3 months before cruise date, if possible. Even though I'm confident this will be a success, there's always a chance only a handful will actually put their money where their mouth is and we may cancel it. If, however, initial response is as strong as I hope and expect it to be, I'll certainly let y'all know earlier that it's safe to make travel arrangements.

How can I bring my family of 5+?
Although the larger family suites are already booked, we may have a limited number of adjoining suites and staterooms that inter-connect to each other. Simply purchase two Stateroom Deposit items and in the order comments specify that you'd like your staterooms to be adjoining, and we'll see what we can do.

What games are being brought?
We'll start a GeekList as we get closer to cruising date - This was 2016's: BGG@SEA 2016 Library. Each attendee gets to specify any two additional games that we'll bring.

Will there be exhibitors? Prizes?
We've heard from some "in the biz" that they're interested in supporting this endeavor. Nothing official has been worked out yet though. We don't imagine we'll have traditional booths or anything, just hopefully some industry folks that want to join us in the fun. Maybe a sponsored on-board or at-port event or something.

Prizes... A traditional bring-a-game-take-a-game prize table provided by our convention attendees.

What about harassment/conduct/abuse?
BGG.CON Events is dedicated to harassment-free convention experiences for everyone. Our anti-harassment policy can be found at BGG Events Harassment Policy

Well, as well as it can be applied anyway to BGG@SEA - we can only control the Conference Center space we have booked. We will revoke badges and deny access to that room as necessary but we have no control or concern for anything that happens anywhere else on the ship.
