As Carnage XX approaches, we’re reminded that while the convention is entering its twentieth year, not necessarily everyone interested in attending has been before or is intimately familiar with how Carnage works. To that end, here’s a quick road map to the convention, from the day preregistration opens to the convention itself.
September 18th, 2017, 7:00pm
Preregistration opens for Carnage. The registration site opens for badge and ticket sales. The convention book is circulated electronically and to friendly local game stores.
Conventioneers can buy a convention badge, sign up to play games, order a souvenir shirt and generally work themselves into a frenzy thinking about all the fun to be had in November. Online registration is in real time: the seats you see available are available right then. You can also put yourself on the wait list for full games. Paper registration forms are processed as and when convention staff are able, and choices cannot be guaranteed.
Tuesday, October 24th, 11:59pm
Preregistration closes. Attendees can no longer request refunds if they cannot attend the convention, or buy or release tickets to reserve seats in games until the convention begins.
Friday, November 3rd, 12:00pm
Convention registration desk in Killington Grand lobby opens. Preregistered attendees can pick up their badge and game packets. Walk-in attendees can purchase one on their network-enabled device and then pick up their badge and packet from the desk. Desk staff can help those without a suitable device.
Friday, November 3rd, 1:00pm
The first slot of the convention begins! Go have fun.
