GMs - game booking is progressing nicely. I have opened another block of slots for people to book into. Quite a few of you have forgotten to complete the game details sheet as well as the timetable; please can you do it when you have a moment?

GM prebooking is now concluded.

All GMs got their first choice except one, who got their second choice. You can see what you got on either the game details or GM Pre-booking sheets. There are 5 games that are in demand and as a result only have 2 spaces left. If you want to play one of these games, make sure it's one of your first choices on the slot - there is no point of putting them as your third or fourth choice.

They are:
Slot 1 - Dead or Alive, Bounty Hunter, Guy Sclanders
Slot 2 - Training Day, Star Trek Adventures, Neil Gow
Slot 2 - Forgotten Princess, Traveller, Graham Spearing
Slot 4 - Hammerheads - Prehistoric Park, Dr Bob
Slot 4 - Doctor Who - Early Light, Graham Walmsley

Player prebooking will open tomorrow evening once I have the spreadsheet updated. I will announce it here and on Facebook.
Thanks, Dom

With GM selections complete, we are now opening up game selection for everyone. We will be looking to honour first choices as much as possible, but then will work through subsequent choices to get the best selections we can.

The sheet to notify us of your preferences is here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oqygyVFuWFVrkjcXYSZLDt7pwBDF0elepsVlsNdSpQI/edit#gid=1835080833

Instructions are on the sheet.

If you have any questions during this stage then find us in the usual channels on The Gaming Tavern Forum, Facebook group, or Gaming Tavern Discord. If these are all a mystery to you, then feel free to reply to this email and we will help.

Cool beans. Given that there are roughly twice as many people booked as seats per slot, would it be worth including advice to help people steer toward the games they most want? (And to manage expectations.)

Just to be clear - some of you expressed a preferred name which was a forum handle - your entry on the list is under that with your real name in parentheses.

It’s in order of preference and there is a yellow box on the sheet that advises this. I’ve just duplicated it so it’s on the left of the sheet as well.

Because of other commitments, I'm unavailable for two slots. So I'm playing in one slot and running in another. I guess that there will be others like myself in the same position, so there is a good chance everyone will get a chance to play.
