Child's Play Donations
This year we're asking for people to donate money for a good cause but we want to give you something for your hard earned cash. What we're asking is $5, paid at the registration desk, when you arrive at Craggnarok on March 19th. For that we'll accept your preregistration and you can't be bumped from your game due to demand. If you don't pay $5 then your spot is not solidified and if there are 12 people who want to play and only 3 spots for a game your interested in you might not get to play as we use a random dice mechanic to decide who's in and who isn't. I think that's pretty reasonable. Don't you think that's reasonable? If you don't I don't wanna hear it because your a cheapskate. It's for the kids man!! FOR THE KIDS!!!!
How to Register

The Charity Raffle
Sorry. Got a little crazy up there. Now if you aren't interested in paying the measly $5 for the prereg stuff, or even if you are, there's a raffle where some of the CRAGGanites have stretched their creative muscles and delved into their geek collections to provide everything from gaming books and dice to chain mail jewelry and magic decks. So throw down a few bucks, grab some tickets, and throw in for what your interested in. Once again all the money goes to Child's Play. For the kids man. Do it for the kids.
Now that I'm done preaching for the kids I can tell you about some of the highlights of the day. There's gonna be a Super Smash Brothers Tournament throw down, a visit from the one of the local chapters of Dagohir, a LARP group with a more combat focus (Think foam weapons), a LAN set up for all your computer gaming needs (Bring your own computer) and the highlight of the day, Armcannon, a highly regarded video game music rock band.
Arm Cannon Concert - 8:00 in the assembly hall (2nd floor of the student union). The show is free to all. For more information on Arm Cannon go to http://armcannon.com/
