Launch Parrrty! Registration Now Open!
When and where will the Launch Party be held?
It'll be held in Austin on Saturday, October 19, 2013. Doors will open at 10am. The exact venue will be announced later.
How do I register? How long will registration be open?
You can register here. We'll take this form down at some time after noon (Austin time) on Monday, July 8th.
Must I register in advance? Are places limited?
Yes to both. Only those who register before Monday, July 8th will be guaranteed places.
How much do tickets cost?
Tickets for age 14+ are $25. This includes a goody bag with a limited edition Ogre-Launch-Themed T-Shirt ($19.95 MSRP value) and other items.
Tickets for age 13 and under are free. However, these guests must still be registered in advance (there's an option to add friends and family on the form).
If you want a child-sized limited edition T-Shirt for your child guest, there's an option on the form to select a T-shirt size for them. This will automatically upgrade the child ticket from "free" to "$15". This ticket comes with a child-sized T-shirt (it does NOT come with anything else in the goody bag).
What events will be at the Launch Party?
There'll be signings by Steve, the opportunity to buy extras, organized play, and more. We aim to arrange for the sponsored counter sheets to be on sale (whether a particular sponsored sheet is available may depend on the individual sponsor).
There'll also be tables for open play, since what many folks will want to do is to just sit down, open the box and start playing!
Can I pick up my Kickstarter rewards? (Game + extras)
Yes. If you do, you'll be among the first to get Ogre Designer's Edition!
NOTE: You have to choose to either grab it all, or nothing. Unfortunately, we're not able to separate your rewards.
Will the extras come with my pickup?
Yes. Note that if you choose to pick up your rewards, then you must take it all.
Can I NOT pick up my Kickstarter rewards?
Yes, you can still get your Kickstarter rewards shipped to you. This is the default option on the registration form. Shipping will begin on Monday, October 21.
Can a friend register me as an additional ticket holder, if I'm a Kickstarter supporter picking up my rewards (game + extras)?
No. Only main ticket holders can pick up Kickstarter rewards (this is clearly stated on the form).
Do I have to print my registration confirmation to bring to the event? Or just bring ID?
Only the main ticket holder (for each group registered together) needs to bring ID to the event. We'll check your ID against the guest list. There's no need to print out your registration.
Can I buy additional extras at the event?
Yes, you can buy anything that's still available at the event. Pocket Ogre will NOT be on sale (though backers at $150 and above will receive their copy if they're picking up rewards). We intend for only $150 backers and above to have Pocket Ogre, for a few months at least.
I'm not a Kickstarter backer. Can I still come to the Launch Party?
Yes, you're welcome to register!
We hope this clarifies any questions you have about the Launch Party.
We're really looking forward to seeing many of you, and celebrating this gigantic monster which we created together!
