Rewards for GMs and Volunteers

We all love games, but we all have other expenses. In an effort to help maintain a healthy balance, Nuke-Con brings you

The Game Master and Volunteer

Reimbursement Program

The goal: to provide a way for dedicated volunteers and game masters to reduce the cost of a convention badge.

The sytem: For every eight hours of pre-registered volunteer eb54bdbd-6ef8-4be6-98ce-6d566b4fb9e5-6634-0000052126034f3dtime, or every eight hours of games that are scheduled in advance and that run, Nuke-Con will reimburse half the cost of the volunteer’s badge. For twelve hours of volunteer or game time, we’ll reimburse the entire cost of the badge. Mixing game time and volunteer time is permitted. Pre-registering for either function is required.

We also need volunteers for pre-convention activities; this time will count toward the total, as will games registered in advance for Aftershocks.

As always, there is fine print which you can find here.

Nuke-Con recognizes that our convention cannot run without its volunteers and its game masters. Our gratitude has no half-life; it is forever. We’re glad to be able to offer this tangible evidence.

You know we do this for our gamer community, and the entire gamer community has supported Nuke-Con most enthusiastically. From the spent fuel bottoms of our hearts, Thank you! Thank you again!

 

Welcome to the Updated Nuke-Con Website

We are excited to be taking the wraps off our new site.  As we mentioned recently, this year we’re going to try something new for game sign-ups.  One of the requirements, related to that change, was an easier to use site for people on their mobile devices.  This becomes important when trying to manage your schedule at the convention.

Most of the content should still be in a familiar place.  Have questions about the Convention?  Look under the Convention menu item.  Need to contact one of the staff?  Check out Contact Us.

A larger change has been made with the Fallout Shelter.  While it is still available as a separate site, we have included its functionality in our new main site.  This includes your member sign in, now found at the top right of every page, the schedule, and when the time comes, the forms to submit events and buy registrations.

Again, with this change will come a chance for issues. If you do experience a problem with the new site, please contact us via email or Facebook.

Event Sign-Ups for Nuke-Con 2016

As Nuke-Con grows we do our best to keep up with changes in the convention landscape, This year we’re going to try something new for game sign-ups. We’re going electronic.

You can still visit the Game Registration desk to sign up for your events, but you will also be able to sign up right from your smart phone, iPad, etc. There’s no app to download; if you want to use your own device, you will just need to sign in to your account on the Fallout Shelter.

Fifteen minutes before the event, we will shut down the online sign-ups and print the event roster. If there are available seats at the table, you can still get into the event by visiting Game Reg. As always, you can check at the table itself as the event gets started to see whether there is any room left.

With change comes chance for issues. Tell us about your experience so if the process needs improvement, we’ll know.

See you at the con!
