Open Gaming A.K.A. Pick-up Gaming A.K.A. The One Shot.  


No gaming convention would be complete without open gaming. This convention is no exception to that rule. Open gaming goes on throughout any such convention, and it is common place in many conventions, that all of the gaming is made up by people playing open games. Open gaming is not generally discouraged by the convention management; in fact, open games are a large part of the appeal of gaming conventions. In some cases it may be the only time a person has a chance to play a game they haven't or don't get to play that often. It allows players to try out new games they have been interested in seeing and allows people to exchange ideas about home games. 


How does open gaming work? 


A game master submits an event using the form HERE and we put it on the schedule. Then convention attendees sign up to play in that event at the time slot it was made availble. We will list the games that have been submitted and allow guests to sign up for those games a few weeks before and during the convention. 


GM Open Gaming Discount.


Want to save even more money. Run some games at our open gaming tables. For each four (4) hour game that you successfully run you will receive $2 credit. If no one plays in your session you get nothing back but will be free to go join in someone else's game and have some fun.


The refund you get will be in one of three forms of payment. You may choose which form and may mix and match.  

  • You may receive credits towards the cantina.
  • You may receive a dealers room credit.
  • You may receive a credit towards your next years registration.

Where we differ from others. 


Most conventions only give you credit if you run twelve (12) hours of gaming, but SCARAB believes there are lots of game masters that just want to run one game, so we are willing to give you credit for a single (1) game.  




In addition to choosing one of the ratings, GMs should further clarify the content of their games by rating each of the following categories, Violence, Language, Sexual Content, and Adult Themes, at 0 to 3, based on situations and content that they expect to come up in their games, 0 meaning it will not occur, 1 meaning mild or infrequent, and 3 meaning graphic or frequent.  Violence includes killing and graphic descriptions of blood and gore, Sexual Content includes suggestive situations and sexual humor as well as actual sex, and Adult Themes includes any potentially questionable, offensive, or disturbing content not previously covered, such as drug, alcohol, tobacco use, disturbing images, the occult, cthulhoid monsters, etc. For more on Ratings, click here


Parents and players who have questions about the content of a particular game are encouraged to talk to the GM of that game for more information prior to the start of the game.
