There are going to be a lot of great events at the DWPP, and so far, it’s turning out to be one of the biggest Cons we’ve hosted. [Click to see Full Schedule] Here is just a bit of what we have planned:
TF2 2v2: Pick your team mate and we’ll load up the server with Cyber-Punk and then the fun begins! Who knows.. maybe you’ll find a spy in the discotheque!
CP: After Dark - You know what that means. Some crazy TF2 action.
Rock Band - If we have enough teams, there will be a tourney. If not, just a lot of fun Rock band action.
Ruggbys Trivia - We’ll eat lunch on Saturday at Ruggbys, a local sports bar. They have a trivia system, so if you have an ipad or iphone, download the free NTN trivia app so we can have plenty of trivia boxes to go around!
SC2 - We’ll be running some Star Craft 2 events as well for people who have a copy of this game.
WizWar - Wes will be running his world famous WIZ WAR! Sponsored by @joehills
TFC - Robin Walker from Valve has given us 24 keys for TFC, so we’ll get an awesome 12v12 match going!
We Built This Town - Release Party & Birthday Bash to celebrate One year of THE SHAFT!
Minecraft Resource Gathering - The Makers Local 256 will be hosting a minecraft gathering tourney with software they built to keep track of everyone’s resources!
Board Games - All weekend long you’ll be able to play some of the board games you’ve never heard of. There’s always fun to be had with these gems.
Minecraft Build - We will have a server up all weekend long where you can go in and build to your heart’s content.
We hope that this sounds like a lot of fun, because I know we’re all super excited, and can’t wait for the first arrivals!! Which oddly enough are going to be some of our Canadian brothers and sisters. I guess they can’t wait to leave that country or maybe the Mounties have developed some incredible transportation system.
See you all in just a few days!
The DWPP is a small affair compared to big cons. With only 40ish attendees it is small in comparison. And HARD to get sponsors to see the value in donating goods. That is why we appreciate the sponsors even more than they know.
So far, we have been sponsored by these great companies and are waiting on a few more possibilities.
dealnews.com - Has donated an 80port switch so we can have an incredible lan set up for gaming!
LethalDrive - Who is donating a Prize of a FREE 512MB server for 3 months with Free mysql/debranding/managed plugins package!
Curse - Who is donating 5 premium accounts as prizes
Bawls - Who has donated stickers, keychains and mints
Valve - Who has donated 24 codes for TFC & some swag.
Makers Local 256 - Will be running a Minecraft tourney with custom code to keep track of your items!
Ruggbys - They will be donating use of the NTN trivia system and appetizers for our Trivia Lunch!
We hope that everyone appreciates them as much as we do, and take the time to check out their websites and see what they have to offer.
If you use the curse network, think about getting the premium service. It’s really worth it. If you are thirsty and need some refreshment to keep you up gaming, go grab a Bawls. And if you are buying a PC game, check out steam and buy it there first before any other service! Not to mention, a bunch of new items in the Valve store! And don’t forget, Makers Local 256, always up to something geeky and interesting. So head over to their site and find out how you can get involved! And if you play Minecraft — Got get you a server from Lethal Drive! They have a great package just for our listeners (coupon code ‘theshaft’)
Also, if you are a company looking for a bit of press, we will be putting all sponsors on the sponsors page. I’ll add new ones here. We’ll be having their names streaming throughout the convention on the live stream, and we’ll be giving them a big thank you on our post shows.
It may not be too late to mail stuff in, but we can definitely give out digital goods as well. And a big hearty thank you from us and all our fans! Just email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
