If you love all-night gaming, cool geeky company, and lots of food, this event's for you!We'll be gaming it up in a large, downtown warehouse-style gallery. Lots of room and very chill specs.

When: February 8th, Saturday

Time: 7pm - 4am

Where: Gallery 1548 (downtown LA)

Admission Fee: $12 cash at the door DOE/ $10 prepaid payment online through PayPal

(DOE = Day of event)

For prepaid $10 admission:

PayPal Payment: LINK

Send $10 attendance fee to [masked]

or pay me in cash in person by buying a tangible ticket.

If you wish to pay me in cash, message me about meeting in person to buy a ticket. You can also message or meet Myrna, Abram, or Brian in person for ticket purchases.

Once your PayPal fee is paid or ticket is pre-purchased, your spot for admission will be marked down on a prepaid guest list which will be checked at the door DOE.

If you bring guests, they must also pay attendance fee at the door.

Game Fests have previously been potluck style, but for the first time, WGN will be providing plenty of eats and drinks for both donations and purchase. This way we can guarantee the quality of food that will always be present at our events. Guests will also find it better to come in worry-free with only games in tow for the event, rather than additionally scouting for or preparing a dish for a potluck arrangement.

You are free to make food requests here on the commentary section and we'll definitely consider having these foods available for the food and drink menu and stations.

Vegan, vegetarian, and those sensitive to gluten will be considered for the menus. As a vegan, I'll personally make sure to cover that base.

The Game Fests are a lot more delightful with lots of entertainment. Bring your favorite board and tabletop games to share and play with others.

This includes gaming equipment such as consoles, laptops, monitors, controllers, and the like. If you'd like to bring a projector for dance games, please let me know.

If you'd like to tag your games with a sticker or marker to show ownership, please do so. I advise it.

We will have a gaming station for video gaming in the warehouse.

We'll be offering Valentine's Day grams (card with personal note and choice of attachable candy) for purchase to send that special someone, whether he/she is someone you meet the day of the party or someone you've had your eye on for awhile.

We'll even allow you to send a gram anonymously if that is your wish, but as they say, "fortune favors the bold!"



Alcohol will be on the premises and will be free with a suggested donation for serving.

As always, with alcohol involved you MUST be 21+ to drink and YOU must drink responsibly.

Inebriated/drunk guests will not be welcomed back to any future events and will be removed from the group. I don't want to be responsible for this type of complication. As a renter, I am responsible for guests and maintaining the integrity and quality of the establishment. The WGN crew has to clean up after the event, so it's inconsiderate to trash and defile the place through drunken behavior and consequences of any kind.


Other fun stuff to look for at this event:

• -Two Booms and a Room

• -Pinata play

• -Raffles and prizes

• -Fun and atmospheric decor

• -much more!

Last but not least, please bring the most important thing of all:

An unadulterated desire and craving to have lots of fun!

If you have any ideas (or suggestions) to add, please post them!

    Hi, This might sound like an odd question--I believe I saw this event a couple weeks ago and it wasn't limited to just women. Is it possible for guys to also attend the GameFest?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
