GAMEMASTER SIGN-UP

This event is known as an ‘expo’ because there won’t be any tournaments. We’re looking for people to run tabletop wargaming demos, fun multiplayer events, ‘homebuilt’ rules systems, playtests, and things of that nature. If you run an event or events for at least four hours, your weekend badge fee will be waived. Table space will be 60 inches by six feet.

Please fill out the form below with your event (if you’d like to run multiple events, please fill out a separate form for each) and if you have any questions, please let me know via email at atom@tabletopminions.org and I’ll get you sorted.
