Anyway we can get a parking pass if we bring (X) number of games and stay off property? I swear that parking lot was about $60 a day coming and going for lunch, dinner, ect.

If not, not a bit deal.

Very happy to see FPF return.

we are working on a new flyer, i will post the pdf here when we are ready to order.

if you get a hotel room, parking is free , also, staying at the hotel is a big help for the show .

Staying at the hotel this year, gives my wife an excuse to get away and just hang out at the pool/room while I'm attending.

Debating if I want to bring any games this year, not sure if there is a list of games that FPF keeps to prevent too much overlap.  Curious if the game turnout this year will be same/larger than last year due to extra convention space available this year.

We limit overlap, sometimes one person can only bring title "a" and another person was planning to bring title "a" but also can do title "b" and "c" , we will have the person who can only bring title "a" and the other person try to bring "b" or "c" .

its a lot of hard work shuffling thru , we suggest you submit the number of games you can bring, and then the titles your willing to bring, this way if we have to shuffle around we can, and everynow and then a double is ok.

we pay to have a tech on site to keep games up and running .

This will be my 1st time bringing a game.
Do you still need to buy a ticket when you are game contributor?
