Registrations are going strong - register soon for more swag!

  • We're now comfortable saying that we'll definitely have quite a few more people this year (but we knew that, given the crack organizing team we assembled).
  • Relatedly, we're also already out of A-level swag registrations (=maximum amount of Cards Against Humanity cards, plus other surprises, if things work out). But don't despair! We have levels A, B, C, D, and E, so B's not so bad, is it?
  • Early bird pricing expires February 28!

15 January 2015

GOBfest 2015 Registrations are now open! Hooray! 

...oh, and by the way, you might want to register early, for several reasons:

  • Space in tournaments is limited! Favourites such as Catan, Dominion, Ticket to Ride, and 7 Wonders fill up quickly. Avoid disappointment.
  • There are early bird prices! Save some money.
  • GOBfest is making its own Cards Against Humanity mini-expansion! And the earlier you register, the more cards you get...

 ...so head on over to our registrations page to sign up right away!
