Tent Town Prizes

Camp Ground Layout

Each tent site is assigned to a Tent Town Row (Orcs, Goblins, Kobolds, Elf and Empire). Each row earns points towards the Great Gaming Escape championship, and is awarded a special prize during the awards ceremony.

While we don’t provide tents, sleeping bags, and chairs (please bring your own), we do have several camp masters to assist each BR&WLer in setting up their site.

Campfires are only be allowed at the group site, so you don’t need to worry about firewood.

Quiet hours are after 10PM each night, so gaming must be kept in the Gaming Hall, to allow for others to rest.

Staff and Event GM Opportunities

For those who would like to be a part of the first Great Gaming Escape, we have several opportunities for you to consider.

Earn free registration if you’re able to fill the roles below:

Camp Guides: (16 hours) Help with setting up tents, tear down, maintaining the group campfire, setup and cleanup for meals. You would be servicing guests needs during event check-in and check-out. In addition, for each meal, you would help to setup and clean up the food buffets, as well as trash maintenance.

GM Games: 16 hours of events. For an event to count towards the 16 hour requirement, it must:

  • be open to 4+ players (not counting the GM)
  • occur during prime time slots (non-midnight game slots)
  • must be pre-approved games (submit here)

Please consider what type of gaming event you wish to run to interest the most guests possible. We have limited tables available so we are looking for some of the most in-demand events. Generally, 16 hours of events equates to 4 – 4 hour prime-time gaming slots.
