Stretch Goals!

What is Well Played?

Well Played is a community party being held at on November 4, 2016 at BlizzCon in Anaheim, California. This is our 4th year creating a fun place to gather and hang out with friends, meet new ones, and win awesome prizes throughout the night!

The Well Played organization is run by members of the Convert to Raid guild from World of Warcraft, one of the largest WoW guilds in the world. In 2016, we expanded our efforts to create a 150-person meetup in Minneapolis, MN for the release of the Warcraft movie. We know the importance of community and finding your "tribe". Our goal is to create events that people look forward to every year. 

 Where is the party being held?   

Well Played will be located at the Hilton Anaheim directly next to the Anaheim Convention Center. The party is located on the second floor directly above the very active Hilton lobby.

Will there be a live stream again this year?

Yes! Our live stream was a big hit last year, and we've learned a lot from our experiences in 2015. We have built the live stream into our budget as a "must" to have a successful party, and we are committed to make it even better this year.

Will the party be free to enter?

Absolutely! Our crowdfunding efforts keep this party free and open to anyone who attends BlizzCon 2016.

What's new for the party this year?

In 2016, we plan on adding the following:

  • Improved live stream experience - multiple cameras, more interviews, a dedicated area to minimize the butts in the camera's view!
  • A dedicated tabletop gaming area in the party space.
  • More CtR guild gear available at our merchandise table.
  • More giveaways and prizes for the attendees and live stream audience.
  • Professional photography taken throughout the evening, giving us an even bigger and better photo album to preserve the memories!

Risks and challenges

Risks & challenges: We have few, which is wonderful.

If we are unable to reach our funding goal, we will be unable to host the party this year. We're prepared to do everything in our power to make sure our tradition continues for many years to come, and we thank you for your part in helping us do that.
