Gaming Triathlon

Gaming Triathlon 2019


The Gaming Triathlon is a friendly competition between convention attendees, encouraging players to widen their gaming participation at GFGR and the community in general. To do this, our triathletes will need to play in one each of a role-playing game, board game, and miniatures game over the course of the Rendezvous.

Each triathlete pays a $5.00 entry fee for a special scorecard. The front of the card has spaces to be stamped as you complete games, while the back of the card has the rules. More importantly, they also list our Challenge Tables. These tables are the authorized games for the triathlon, and from this list, you get to figure out what games to play. Challenge Tables will be scheduled throughout the course of GFGR, starting when we open at Noon on Friday, October 10th, and ending at 2pm on Sunday the 12th.

Please present your card to the GM when you first join a Challenge Table. The GM will hold onto it during the event to remind himself of who is part of the triathlon. When the game is complete, the GM will use a special stamp on the front of your card, initialing it and returning the card to you. Collect a stamp in each of the three categories, and you’ve got a shot at one of the TREASURES OF ATLANTIS! Then you can earn bonus stamps by entering more Challenge Tables and filling out a whole category. Fill the category up with stamps, and you get bonus entries to the drawing!

Turn your card into Con HQ on Sunday, between 2pm and 3pm. If you have at least one stamp in all three gaming categories, you get an entry into a drawing for TREASURES OF ATLANTIS! But you need to be at closing ceremonies to win, so don’t forget to show up!

Registration will open soon.

We will take entries at the door, but the more we know in advance, the bigger and better our first annual Triathlon can be! One Entry Per Person.

And this year, people who host Challenge Tables can also join in the competitive fun. We made it so being a host or GM doesn’t preclude you from racing against others for the TREASURES OF ATLANTIS! In fact, volunteering to host a Challenge Table reduces your entry fee to only two dollars, and the more you offer to run, the more bonus entries you can get!

So everybody take a chance on fostering good, fun, competitive excitement for yourself and others and see who can delve beneath the depths for the TREASURES OF ATLANTIS!
