What will be played?

Official tournaments are planned, and some may only be available to BYOC ticket holders, but there will be tons of casual gaming going on throughout the day and other tournaments you can participate in. For BYOC, you can expect people to be jumping into anything and everything, from PUBG to WoW to Half Life Deathmatch.


Additionally, board and consoles games will be going throughout the day. Bring your favorite board game or console game, hang out and meet some new people! Diversions will be bringing tons of games to grab and play.

NOTE: If you bring any games or controllers to the venue, you must check them in at the registration desk. We will tag them for safety and theft prevention purposes. We don't want anyone stealing your stuff!

Will there be food?

Outside food is permissible. Please be respectful of the venue and clean up after yourself.


Barrio is located next door and has some fantastic tacos and chips and salsa. Downtown Portsmouth is only a short walk away with many other food options.


We will additionally try to get some local food popups to come in and sell some tasty eats!

Will there be drinks?

Cash bar will be available for the duration of the event. Our friends at Garrison City Beerworks will be hosting a tap takeover with some of their favorite beers. No outside alcohol is allowed under any circumstances. PLEASE drink responsibly and respect the venue and others around you.

There will be raffle tickets for sale with all proceeds going towards the community pool for Extra Life. These proceeds will benefit the Northern Light Maine Medical Center Children's Miracle Network. Tournament winners will also receive special trophies and additional raffle tickets.
