Go Play NW was founded in 2007 to promote and foster role-playing/story games. For that purpose we brought together long-time role-playing-game hobbyists, game designers, and also people new to gaming for a weekend of gaming fun and fellowship in Seattle. The event was such a great success that even before it was over, it was obvious we’d be holding another one.
Today, Go Play NW continues to organize an annual game weekend fundraiser to get people together and support gaming in the Seattle area. It’s now a three-day event featuring in-person gaming of all sorts, from traditional tabletop RPGs to indie story games to crazy experimental games about dancing animal lawyers, with some board and card games thrown in for good measure. We kick off the weekend event with a fundraising banquet too, a good opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones.
