Hi All:

This is the first of our announcement emails for Gauntlet Con 2019. I’ll be cross-posting this to the Gauntlet Forums and Gauntlet Slack, so if you’re a member in those places, you should feel free to check out this information there.

Our event creators are still adding their games to the registration site, but you can check out the 117 games already on the calendar here:

While there, go ahead and sign into the site with your Google ID! This will speed up the registration process for everyone who’s a Patreon supporter.

How to Register!

Gauntlet Con 2019 registration begins at 5 PM Eastern/NYC/Toronto Time on Saturday, Sept. 28.

To be ready to register, you need to complete two steps:

  1. Support The Gauntlet on Patreon by Sept. 23! People who back us after that point may not be able to register on Sept. 28.
  2. Log into the registration site with a Google ID. Even if you are a Patreon supporter, we cannot approve you as an attendee until after you log into the registration site at least once. Your logging in is the only way we have to create your account on the registration site.

I know this can be a bit of a hassle, but this will ensure you can register when registration opens!
