- Friday 2nd – Thursday 15th June – GM signups

- Friday 7th – Sunday 9th July – A Weekend With Good Friends!
GM Signups Now Open
If you would like to offer any games for the convention, GM signups will be open until midnight BST on Thursday the 15th of June. You will need to fill in a separate form for each game you plan to run.
Games run around the clock from Friday to Sunday and we invite participants from around the world to come together and pull up a virtual seat, relax and play some great games with new friends and old. We pride ourselves on the convention’s inclusivity. Everybody is welcome; the majority of games offered at previous conventions have been beginner friendly with absolutely no prior experience necessary. Submissions for almost every game system are welcome!
GMs are invited to submit games to run at the convention. Players can then express an interest in which games they would like to join. Unlike other conventions, we allocate seats to players using an automated lottery. This avoids any mad rush when player signups open. We believe this makes things fair for everybody, no matter your time zone.
GMs and players need to join The Good Friends of Jackson Elias Discord server in order to participate. Whilst GMs are welcome to run games using other platforms (Zoom, Jitsi, Discord, etc.), the Discord server is the single source of information about the games on offer. It is also where we will post the lottery results and where GMs can get in touch with players to coordinate games.
All participants should read the convention Harassment and Inappropriate Behaviour Policy.
