              Book a Room!

              Book a room at the convention hotel before 5 PM on May 25 28 31 and save 15%-20% versus the hotel’s regular rates.

              Even if you live lolly, booking a room makes a lot of sense. NBG starts at 10 am on Saturday, so a room on Friday night allows you to avoid having to get up super early to be at registration to pick up you badge right when it opens. It’s also running a solid, 32, non-stop hours (until 6 pm Sunday), so a room on Saturday helps you keep the 3-2-1 rule: by giving you a place to get three hours of sleep and take one shower before hitting the breakfast buffet (also at reduced rates for convention attendees) for the first of your two daily meals.

              Also, as the first time we’re running this con, getting a room at the hotel helps the event A LOT; it helps us negotiate our discounts with the hotels for future events. If you want this event to succeed, let’s pack this place. Encourage all your friends to get rooms so they n enjoy the overnight fun.

              NOTE: Cut-off Date for reserving rooms at the convention rate is 5:00 PM on 23 28 31-May-2017.
              Rooms n, of course, still be booked after the above deadline, just at regular room rates. If you end up doing this, please let the hotel know that you are an NBG attendee so that your room booking will be included in the numbers for the event. 

              Room Rates (up to double occupancy) are as follows:

              • $165 – Traditional Room with 2 Queens or 1 King + Pullout
              • $185 – Traditional Corner Room with 1 King
              • $214 – Club Room with 1 King + Pullout
                A Club room has the same layout as a traditional room but includes access to the Sheraton Club Lounge which provides a free continental breakfast and afternoon snacks.

              For triple and quad occupancy, add an $20 per additional person.

              All rooms include:

              • Free guestroom internet
              • Parking for one (1) vehicle.

              Reservations n be made in the following ways:

              • ll the Hotel directly at (604)-582-9288 or (1-888)-627-8063 and mention that you are booking rooms for the WCSFA’s Nothing But Games event
              • Going through the Online Reservation Site

              More about Artemis

              Artemis Starship Bridge Simulator is a Windows PC game. Basilly, any Windows XP computer, or any newer OS version, should run the game. There are also IOS and Android versions of the game. For additional information, visit the game’s website: http://artemis.eochu.com/

              Assembling an Artemis Bridge Crew

              To assemble a full bridge crew, a team needs 6 people who will fill the following roles. Multiple stations n be controlled per player, but each ship NEEDS at least 2 players - Helm and Weapons.

              The ptain

              The ptain is simultaneously the most important member of the crew and the least involved in terms of physil gameplay. In an ideal setup with a full crew, the ptain doesn’t manage any of the bridge stations, instead focusing his/her efforts on monitoring the main screen, prioritizing targets, and timing the interactions of the crew. The ptain needs to maintain order among the crew members so the whole affair doesn’t become a shouty mess where you go warping into some bad guy's grill just to immediately eat a dozen photon torpedoes. Helms Officer The helms officer

              Helms Officer

              The Helms Officer flies the ship, manoeuvring in the battle for optimal positioning, going to warp/jump when it's time to haul ass, and managing the displays for the main screen. reful Helms play is essential for successful battle, helping to get the drop on enemies, avoid fire, and gain target lock. Helms officers also share control of the main screen display and shields.

              Weapons Officer

              The weapons officer manages the beams, torpedoes, nukes, mines, and shields for the ship, locking onto targets and blowing them to heck when the ptain commands it. Weapons officers have to prioritize which sort of torpedoes to load into the tubes, with a selection of Mines, Homing Torpedoes, Nukes, and ECM. Weapons requires a good deal of coordination with Helms and Engineering to be successful, setting up the shot and then giving the Weapons systems the power necessary to make it count.

              Engineering

              Engineering controls the very beating heart of the Artemis, managing the power systems and usage for the entire ship. If a given system has no power dedited to it, it doesn’t work. Engineering n add more power to something to make it work better, e.g. make the ship turn faster, beams fire faster, etc. Doing this will use that system to overheat, so engineering manages cooling systems. Engineering also manages the damage control systems, prioritizing ship’s repairs when damage is taken in battle. The interaction between Engineering, Helms, and Weapons will make or break any given combat, as a sudden loss of power to steering, weapons, or shields n have drastic consequences, and an extra boost n give you a big advantage over a more powerful ship.

              Communitions Officer

              The Comms Officer n transmit orders to friendly vessels, request a space station build a type of ordnance, and snoop on enemy communitions. Comms n also taunt enemy ships, getting them to attack your ship instead of a space station or friendly vessel. Comms n also order them to surrender. Finally, comms n signal RED ALERT (which doesn’t do much aside from blasting a really annoying sound from everyone’s console, and making the radar reticle turn red). Comms should hit RED ALERT a lot.

              Science Officer

              The science officer runs the advanced sensors of the Artemis, detecting and assessing enemy ships as well as finding space anomalies for the Artemis to investigate. Science’s ability to sn the shields of enemy ships provides Weapons with vital information need to prioritize targeting, and its ability to find anomalies n grant your ship a much-needed power-up when you don’t have time to dock with a space station.

              Volunteer!

              Nothing But Games is a fan-oriented and fan-run convention. All of the work that is necessary to make a successful con happen is done by volunteers. Done by the few, the proud, the elite. Join us, and help to make the Nothing But Games - Open Alpha event a success!

              What needs to be done? Everything! From planning the event to setting up before the event starts to taking things down after the event ends and especially all the things that happen during the event, it’s all done by volunteers. NBG is particularly on the hunt for volunteers interested in running/teaching board and rd games, hosting tabletop RPGs as well as helping to run the event.

              But value is given, and value is returned. There are lots of good reasons to be a Nothing But Games volunteer. Here are five (5) benefits that you might get in exchange for volunteering. We promise that you will receive all of the following things when you volunteer for Nothing But Games.

              1. Discounted entry to the convention. Anywhere from 60% off a one-day membership to 75% off a weekend membership, based on how many hours of work you do. There may also be other perks available, such as free t-shirts or volunteer-only raffle tickets.
              2. Cred. Do not discount this effect. Your peers will look upon you with awe.
              3. A warm, fuzzy feeling inside. You done good, so you feel good!
              4. Good karma. Notwithstanding any of the other benefits, when you participate in a worthy use, you get good karma. Anyway, that’s what we heard (to paraphrase Jackie Chan, playing the Drunken Monk in The Forbidden Kingdom).

              If you'd like to get involved, start off by joining our Discord Chat Server at http://NBGBCNPC. which is where all the planning for the event is being discussed, tasks are tracked, and jobs that need doing are assigned to those helping out before the event. (If you've never used Discord before, not to worry! Just register with Discord when you connect to the link, and you'll be directed to the browser version of the chat app. There is also desktop and phone versions of the applition available.)

              If you'd like to volunteer before or at the event, we also request that you enroll in the WCSFA Volunteer Corps. The Volunteer Corps exists for anyone with interest in helping out at WCSFA events and at other times when we need a few extra bodies to get something done. Enrolling lets us know who you are and what kind of work you'd be willing to do. Members of the Volunteer Corps will always be the first to hear about upcoming volunteer opportunities.

              Another way to volunteer at Nothing But Games is to host a tabletop game - e.g., a boardgame, rd game or roleplaying game (RPG). See the Games! section for details.

              Help Promote The Event!

              Anyone who is excited about the event and would like to help make it a success (so we n do it again next year) n assist us by promoting the event to friends, family and neighbours, in person and on social media. Another method to help promote the event is by downloading, printing and distributing our full page and quarter page flyers at friendly, lol game, comic or related shops; community centres; and other places that seem appropriate.

              If you contact us and let us know all the places you dropped off flyers we will even give you some time credit towards earning a discounted volunteer membership (see the Volunteer! tab for more details).

              The flyers are black and white and are sized for standard letter size paper.  We recommend using a brightly coloured paper if you have it available, but plain white is more than sufficient if that's what you have on hand.

              FAQs

              What's all this about becoming a member?

              WCSFA, as a 100% volunteer run organization, sells memberships to its major events (such as Nothing But Games) rather than tickets. Each event membership purchased represents a support commitment towards the operational costs that must be met for the association to host that event successfully. Approximately 80% of the income for each event comes directly from these membership fees.

              Every member of one of WCSFA's major events is also a member of WCSFA itself, with $5 of the event membership fee going to support WCSFA directly. Every WCSFA member age 13 or older is a Voting Member, eligible to attend and vote at WCSFA General Meetings. Every member age 18 or older are also eligible to run for election to the WCSFA Board of Directors. WCSFA memberships expire a year after the last day of the event for or at which it was purchased.

              Current WCSFA members are also eligible for a $5 discount on memberships for other member-supported events like Nothing But Games or Northwest Fan Fest.

              Is my registration transferrable?

              Yes, NBG registration (and the memberships associated with them) are transferable (that is, you n give or sell them to someone else if you are not able to attend).

              To transfer your registration to another person before the end of online membership sales (noon, June 16, 2017), send an email to the NBG Registrar at [email protected] with the full name and email address of both the person who originally registered and the person it should be transferred to. The Secretary will follow up with both of you to update the registration record with other information.

              After online registration has closed, to transfer your registration you must provide the person you want to transfer it to with a signed note that includes the full name and email address of both yourself and the person it should be transferred to. This note must be brought, along with valid ID, to the NBG registration desk where the registration information will be updated, and a badge will be created for them.

              n I update my registration information?

              Yes. Send an email to the WCSFA Secretary at [email protected] with your full name and the email address used to register the membership to request changes.

              Do I have to bring a printed ticket to the event?

              No, physil tickets are not issued and are not required for this event. Instead, just show up at the Pre-Registration Pickup desk and present valid photo ID to claim your membership badge.

              The Pre-Registration Pickup desk should be open during the following hours:

              SAT: 9:30A - 8:00P
              SUN: 9:30A - 2:00P

              Outside of these hours, you will be able to pick up your membership badge from the convention's Operations Room. (Directions to its lotion will be provided at the venue.)

              What is the refund policy?

              Beuse each purchased membership represents a commitment to support the operation of the event, memberships are not refundable. However, they are transferable (that is, you n give or sell your membership to someone else if you n't attend the event). See the answer to the "Is my registration transferrable?" FAQ for details of how to transfer a membership.
