Our wonderful listeners are organising another online gaming convention!
A Weekend With Good Friends is a virtual gaming convention held on our Discord server. It will take place between the 14th-18th of January 2021. Thanks to our international listenership, we have games running around the clock. Everyone is welcome to come and join in!
The latest information about the convention can always be found in the #awwgf-info channel of the server.
What’s On Offer?
There are now 82 games on offer throughout the convention, covering a wide range of systems.
You can find a list of the games on offering on Google Docs, with details about the scenario, how many players it can take, and any content warnings. Please remember to scroll right as the games go up to cell J in some slots!
Game times are listed in UTC. You will need to convert to your own local time zone. There are plenty of online tools that will help you with this, including the Time Zone Converter.
How Do I Sign Up For a Game?
Game sign-ups are now open. This form will allow you to select the games you would like to play.
Please note that player spots in games are drawn according to a lottery system to avoid a rush for places. You should register for any games that you would like to play, even if they clash. Our system will take your preferences into account.
The cut-off for registering for games is 23:59 UTC on the 11th of January. Please see the sign-up form for full details.
How Do I Offer a Game?
While the deadline for offering games has now passed, you can still offer pick-up games from now until the end of the convention over on the #awwgf-pickup-game-planning channel of the Discord server. We will help in any way we can.
What Else Do I Need to Know?
If you would like to offer games, help with the organisation, or just learn more about the convention, everything is happening on our Discord server. Take a look at the various A Weekend With Good Friends channels for details.
The convention harassment policy is available online. Volunteers will be on hand throughout the convention to help players and GMs with these or any other issues.
Thank you very much to Orbital Axolotl for kicking things off, to TRNSHMN, MartinS and IPwnedMSCS for helping to organise everything, and to everyone else who has chipped in with logistical support, ideas and games!
