Our event is more about growing the tournament community than prizes, that being said you can expect a few things:

1st Place: Full color metal sublimated images mounted on wood plaques!

1st, 2nd, 3rd Place Metals (wearable around your neck)

Your name on our website for all eternity! Past Tournament Winners

Recognition on stage in front of 400 fellow hard core gamers! We put a ton of time into producing the best awards ceremony we can. 45 second videos of each game, all teams/winners names shown on the projector while you are escorted across stage!

These are the reasons we want people to come, if all you are into is prizes well we have those too, but we don’t advertise it because we truly want gamers to come out and show what they have for the fun of it! I know this part will put off a lot of amazing players on this site but I am just trying to be honest and up front with you all!

We have released our keynote speakers list!

Penny Dreadful Productions (PDP) an Atlanta based production company will join Britt Griffith of SyFy’s Ghost Hunters to answers questions and give tips on making it in film/TV during their joint keynote panel discussion.

Michael Resnick, the co-founder and lead developer of Hazardous Software, will cover the use of time travel and time manipulation as a unique gameplay mechanism.
