Can I still buy badges and game tickets after pre-registration has closed?

Yes. Registration, Games Desk and Will Call will open on Friday morning (November 3rd) at 7:00 am. We will not be set up to address game ticket exchanges or new registrations on Thursday afternoon. We will be doing just Will Call for those who pre-registered. Registration will open up on Friday morning for those who need a badge, need to buy game tickets and for those who need to exchange game tickets.

Can I buy game tickets on-line after the show starts so that I can avoid going to the Games Desk and standing in line?

Yes. This year at Gamehole Con, we'll be offering attendees the ability to purchase event tickets entirely online using our mobile website. Any attendee with a badge will be able to browse, search, and purchase tickets for events using your favorite mobile device, and sit down at the table with your virtual e-Ticket to show to the GM.

This service will open on Thursday afternoon (November 2nd) at 3:30 pm.

Can I still submit events now that pre-registration is closed?

No. But you can always run anything that you like in Open Gaming. We also have a white board on which you can write your game details in the event you are looking for players.

Can I get a refund on badges or game tickets now that pre-registration has closed?

No. But we will issue you a credit for a returned badge or returned game tickets that you may spend on a future badge or future game tickets.

Will there be food carts again this year?

Yes. There will be a nice array of food carts located immediately outside of the convention center.

When can I buy things like lego Mini figs, Plushies, modules and the early release Xanathar’s books for Extra Life?

All retail sales (non-badge or game ticket sales) will start at 10:00 am on Friday morning the 3rd.
