We all know that Nintendo is top-tier when it comes to fun, local gaming experiences. So let's get together and play some of those amazing multiplayer games, be it Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, Overcooked, Death Squared, or any of the others that are out on the console. If you have a specific game you want to play, feel free to bring it with you or suggest it.
If you have a Switch, you should bring it. If you don’t have a Switch but are interested in playing some games, you should come. Please keep in mind that there might be a wait for those who didn’t bring a console, depending on how many people did.
The Landing is an open area () at Crystal City Shops. The Crystal City Metro stop (on the Yellow Line) opens directly into the shops and parking is free on the weekends (http://www.crystalcity.org/go/crystal-city-shops-at-1750-18th-street-entrance).
Directions from the Metro
If you're taking the Metro, exit at Crystal City and you can walk to The Landing without having to go outside. When you come up the first set of escalators, turn right to enter the underground shops and then turn right at Rite Aid. Continue straight and The Landing will be the large open seating area on your right, next to San Antonio Bar & Grill and Subway.
If you're driving, parking is free on the weekends in the garage. Enter the garage for 1750 Crystal Drive on 18th Street and take a ticket (you'll need this to exit, but there's no charge). Take the elevators up to Level S. The Landing is the large, open, seating area in front of you, next to San Antonio Bar & Grill and Subway.
Rules of Conduct
1. You don’t have to like everyone but you have to be kind to everyone.
As with any group of people, you’ll click with some people and others might just get on your nerves. This doesn’t excuse any rude behavior though. We’re all here to meet new people and have fun and we should all be doing our part in making everyone feel welcome. Do Nintendo proud.
2. Keep all conversations (and actions) PG-13.
If you drop a couple expletives under your breath here or there, no one’s going to make a fuss. If you start shouting them, telling others what you’ll be doing with their mothers, or making obscene gestures, we’re going to have problems.
3. Share the Joy-Con.
There's a chance that not everyone who attends will own a Switch. Please be willing to share a Joy-Con with other attendees and let them have a turn.
4. Keep the group spoiler-free.
Yes, we're all excited about Zelda but keep in mind that others may not have had as much playtime as you have. Please keep all gaming discussions spoiler-free to respect others who enjoy gaming as much as you do.
