SGC is a gaming convention like no other! It's a three day party where gamers from around the world can come together and share their passion for video games. We're happy to announce that SGC 2015 will take place July 17th - 19th, and will be at the Embassy Suites Dallas-Frisco/Hotel, Convention Center and Spa, located in the north Dallas suburb of Frisco, Texas.
Terms and Conditions:
As SGC continues to get bigger and better, we want everyone to feel assured of their freedom to have fun in a safe environment. Whether this is your first SGC or your fourth, it would be good to familiarize yourselves with some general rules to keep the convention floor free of any misunderstandings. We will have volunteers, security guards, and Dallas PD in the event that an issue would arise. Listed below are the guidelines for attending the convention and being respectful to those who attend it with you.
Do NOT steal - This rule is pretty self-explanatory and applies to the items in the game room, vendor goods in the dealer room, table top room supplies, and anything not on your person. Basically... if it isn't yours, keep it that way.
Do NOT consume alcohol publicly - Now I know you're freaking out, but if you were drinking some tasty lager from your homeland and a TABC officer sees you, we all could be in trouble. Please realize that even though we're inside a building, it is illegal to bring in adult beverages from outside the hotel and consume them on the show floor. You can do whatever you want in the privacy of your rooms and if the hotel sells a can or bottle of a particular booze, then you may walk around with it. Same goes for glasses provided by the hotel. There. We said it, we're covered! What do from here is all on you.
Do NOT do drugs - Drugs are bad, m'kay. If we have any reason to suspect you're a hazard to fellow con goers because you're under the influence of a controlled substance, your badge will be taken will be removed from the event. This also includes being caught consuming or dealing a controlled substance on the show floor. Just don't do drugs at SGC.
No acts of violence will be permitted - That means no fighting, no violent threats, no physical assaults, no purple nurples, no playing the "Circle Game", no snake bites, and no roshambo-ing. We want a good clean con, keeping everything above the belt, and making the floor safe for peoples of all ages. If you cannot commit to that, then you'll have to leave. Orchestrated cosplay combat will be allowed, but again, don't let it get out of hand.
Be considerate of each other - Look, we're all here to have fun. Simply put, don't be a jerk.
Check your cosplay weapons - If you come to the convention as Lara Croft, Ryu Hayabusa, or any other weapon wielding badass; be sure to have your weapons checked at weapons check. They will make sure there aren't any sharp edges or dangerous moving parts, and then put a cute neon zip tie on it. That way when Dallas PD is hanging out on the show floor, they won't assume that gun is real and tackle you in front of your friends.
Sleep in your room - YOU CAN NOT SLEEP IN THE GAMEROOM, PANEL ROOMS, MOVIE ROOM OR ANY OTHER ROOM
AT SGC OTHER THAN YOUR HOTEL ROOM.
