Crit Hit! 2016 - a tabletop roleplaying gathering in Phoenix

Crit Hit! 2016

A tabletop roleplaying game focused weekend held at the Phoenix Hilton Airport. Two days of scheduled RPG’s from Pathfinder and D&D to indie RPG’s. 3-4 rooms limited to no more than 5 tables in each room will create intimate environments to run and play RPG’s.

Highlights include:

  • Themed rooms for Horror, Fantasy, and Sci-fi settings with low volume music appropriate to each genre to enhance the mood.
  • The Game Buffet, where you can experience short encounters that highlight a system’s mechanics. A perfect chance to try out a game and see what makes it special.
  • Crit Hit G.O.D.s (Games On Demand) tables set aside for GM’s will offer a ‘menu’ of games that the players who show up can vote on playing. A great way to meet new people and experience new games.
  • DICE TALKS, hear GM’s and Players share tips and insights in these TED TALK style presentations.
  • Diversity Spotlight: games that highlight feminist, LGBT or minority issues. Because gaming should be inclusive to everyone!Crit Hit! 2016 will be the premier gathering of Tabletop Role Playing Game enthusiasts in Arizona. 
  • This Kickstarter is to fund the operations of this event. The initial goal is to pay for the rental of the space, signage, badges, and reward merchandise. Every add on you pledge to will generate funds to make the event even bigger, by allowing us to have special industry guests, upgraded rewards, and features to make the event a unique RPG event unlike any other. In addition to a wide range of regular planned games, which include many smaller indie games as well as all the bigger named games you may know, here are a few things that will make Crit HIt! 2016 unique!

    EACH PLEDGE $31 and above now will receive an exclusive module by Ken St. Andre
    ! (yes, add ons will count toward this!)

and ADD ONS!

Crit Hit! 2016 is proud to present Themed Gaming Rooms! Each of the 3 (fantasy, horror, sci-fi,) gaming rooms at the event are smaller rooms which will hold between 3-5 round tables that can seat up to 10 people. This means you won’t have to shout out what your character is doing while you play! RPG's are usually designed to be dramatic and while sometimes things call for people to shout or be loud, you shouldn’t have to yell across the table for every action. Each room will also feature soundtrack music for that genre played at a low volume to help provide ambiance.

Want to learn what makes Dungeon World so cool? Ever wonder what the fuss about FATE CORE is all about? Crit Hit! Game Buffet is here to help. Sit down and ‘sample’ multiple game systems in one session. This is a great way of finding out how mechanically a system works without having to commit a large block of time to actually playing a whole game. Game system mechanics will be presented in short encounters that highlight mechanics that make a game system unique. Perfect for DM’s and players who want to ‘try before you buy’.

We have G.O.D.s but YOU are in charge of them! G.O.D. stands for Games On Demand. Is the game you wanted to play all booked up, or are you adventurous and want to try something new and unplanned? Game Masters will be available to run pick up games. Just find a G.O.D GM (you can tell who are the Crit Hit G.O.D. GM’s by their large badges with images on them of games they are willing to run). Once a number of players are together, the GM will offer a few games to run. They have pre-generated characters ready to go so you can jump in on the action. This is a great way to try a new game out and maybe make a new friend at the table.

There is more to RPG’s than what’s between the covers of its rules. Come and hear new ideas and insights from game designers, publishers, GM's and player. These will be short TED TALK style presentations with discussion afterwards. Come learn and share ideas about our hobby.

Crit Hit! 2016 is proud to feature games that foster diversity as a part of the game world as written. Games such as Night Witches that highlighs the struggle of women in combat during WWII, or Monsterhearts and Hot Guys Making out which openly deal with gender issues. Crit Hit! believes that diversity in gaming will only help strengthen our hobby by being more inclusive. Check the schedule for game marked with a {SYMBOL} icon for games that spotlight diversity issues and join in to show support!

Risks and challenges

Funding is the biggest challenge that this event faces, as everything about it depends on this Kickstarter to make it happen. Merchandise for this event will be produced right after funds clear to the bank account and every estimate put them in my hands well before the event is scheduled to happen
