Video Gaming at GottaCon 2012
Today we announce our electronic gaming line-up planned for GottaCon 2012. Below please find our list of game systems, games and tournaments planned for GottaCon 2012, which will be held February 3rd to 5th, 2012 at Pearkes arena in Victoria BC (3100 Tillicum Road).
Public stations are free to use by any GottaCon attendees as long as they are not needed for our premium events. BYOC slots will remain free and available on a first come, first serve basis. We will have 80 LAN seats available. These seats will be able to be reserved on our Warhorn site but only if you purchase your ticket in advance. A new feature in the LAN this year will be a PC check where attendees that BYOC, if they want, can drop off their systems instead of leaving them hooked up or taking them home. This service will be offered free of charge but GottaCon and its partners will not be responsible if the system is damaged or stolen. We will have someone watching the systems 24 hours a day but again this is at the owners own risk and a signed waiver is required.
Also, this year we are doing something a little different....

GottaCon 2013 Gamers Silent Auction It’s Back!
On Saturday February 2th only between 9:00am and 6:30pm, come out and take part in the GottaCon Gamers Silent Auction brought to you by GottaCon Conventions. Convention goers are welcome to bring out their own items for sale as well as bid on the wide variety of items that will be available. We stress patience with convention staff as it takes time to enter all the information of submitted items and when the auction is complete to record all the results. If you would like to fill out a form and bring it with you to the convention please download the form http://www.gottacon.com/components/gc2013auctiontemplate.pdf. Also this year we are looking to set up self-serve computers where you can fill out your forms and print them for our staff.
What is a silent auction?
In this type of auction, items are put on display. To place a bid, bidders write on a piece of paper located near the item. The bidder will be able to see the bids made already and must bid at least the minimum amount specified higher than the current bid. The minimum increase over the current bid will be $1.00 unless otherwise indicated. Bidding closes after a pre-set period of time. The highest bidder at the end of the auction wins the item and pays the price submitted.
For more specifics on how the auction is run and how you can submit an item visit our [url=http://www.gottacon.com/?p=1753]website[/url].
Some items that will be up for bid are:
- Board games new and used
- Tradable card games, singles and boosters
- Previously owned video games
- Video game systems
- Collectible/non-collectible miniatures and accessories
- Role-playing games old and new
- Books, comic books and animé
- Many other gaming and hobby related items
The GottaCon auction provides a great opportunity to buy and sell all of your gaming and hobby related items at great prices. The previous three years have been hugely successful so make sure you check out the auction on Saturday!!
Please note that GottaCon Conventions reserves the right to refuse any items submitted for sale in the auction. All items must be registered with GottaCon staff at the special events area and a fee of $1.00 per item must be paid.

How and Where to Get Your Tickets
There are two ways to get tickets! Methods of payment that will be accepted will include:
1) Paypal - Pay from the comfort of your own home on our site
2) Purchase a ticket at a local participating retail location
It is very important to remember that when you purchase your ticket that you include your first and last name and the full name of the individual(s) that the ticket(s) are for it is also helpful to include an email address or phone number in case there are any issues.
If you purchase your tickets via a store location you will receive a ticket from the store with a unique code. You must bring this ticket with you to gain entry to our event this year.
When you show up we will enter the code into our database and check you in. Without this code we will not be able to check you in and thus you will not be able to enter GottaCon 2013.
This year we will have "Will Call" which means starting at 1:00pm Friday February 1, 2013 you can come to the entrance to GottaCon 2013 and check in, receive your badge and be told a location where, once the doors open, you will be able to enter the event simply by presenting your pass. Will Call is only available to advance ticket holders. This is in an effort to relieve the line congestion we saw at our 2012 show.
