Unpub 8 Venue

**NOTE: We are aware you are currently unable to book the rooms online, please call them at the number and group code at the bottom of this page to book your room(s) until the hotel enables online registration. We apologize for the inconvenience. The Delta Hotels Hunt Valley location is really a one stop shop for Unpub. Not only do we have our own private and well-laid out space, which will save us from the Health Insurance Info Sessions and Cheerleading Competitions of the past, but it, well, let us just share a few of the highlights that sold us on the place. Parking: The hotel offers 900 free parking spots with a spillover lot if needed right next to the light rail – oh yeah, selling point #2, the light rail. Light Rail: It was between 25-30 minutes from BWI to the Convention Center, then another 15 minute walk to hotels. Now it’s a 75-80 minute ride but a far less walk! For all of the schedules for the Light Rail on both weekdays and weekends, please follow this link to the Maryland Transit Authority: https://mta.maryland.gov/light-rail Meeting Space: The ballroom is ours to play and outside it is surrounded by our vendors and sponsors. We will have a real coat check for designers, VIP guests, publishers, and vendors. We have private rooms for panels. Once we set up for the con we will be able to rock and roll, no more setting up Friday evening or early Saturday morning. Everything will be set up as of Friday morning. Food Options: Less than a mile walk from the hotel or a shuttle ride away, yes there is a free shuttle, is the Hunt Valley Towne Center. It holds all of the staples of a mall, a movie theater, plenty of food choices, and more. https://www.shophuntvalley.com/ There also are several restaurants within walking distance such as Texas Roadhouse, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, California Pizza Kitchen, and Outback Steakhouse. The Delta Hotel offers two casual restaurant featuring American Cuisine, the Polo Lounge & Bar and Cafe 245. Lodging: As this is considered to be a hotel and convention center, there are plenty of rooms and then some for anyone and his or her Uncle! Hotel room blocks are available for $129.00 a night plus tax. Double and single bed rooms are available on a first come first serve basis. When reserving your room, please make sure to use the code: UG1. As of right now, you only may reserve via phone, but the code on the Marriott.com reservation page will be up and running shortly.

Unpub at Origins Game Fair

Good Morning Fellow Gamers! As many of you are aware, we here at Unpub are busy preparing for our next ProtoAlley at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio! We’ve been a guerrilla feature at this convention for several years, and this year thanks to our awesome sponsor Renegade Games, we’ll be there in an official capacity! Origins will be at the Greater Columbus Convention Center (400 N High St, Columbus, OH 43215,) Starting Thursday June 15 through Sunday June 18, 2017. This is 5 full days of gaming and Unpub is proud to be in the heart of it all. Our rooms will be C171 and C172 and we’ll be active for at least 4 days of the Convention starting at 10am each morning. Thursday, Friday and Saturday we’ll play till 5pm. Each of those days consists of two shifts, 10am to 1pm, and 2pm- 5pm. Sunday starts at 10am like the other days, but it will end at 2pm and we only have one shift for designers to demo their games. We might be open for a period of time on Wednesday evening, as well…and we will look for other times to throw open the doors and hoist our noodle, so stay tuned to our social media for extra times! Registration for the event has been going on for a few weeks now, and we are excited about the 64 games currently registered from 41 different designers! As of this writing there is still space in every shift across the event for more designers. We have 28 tables each shift and while it looks like some shifts are full, there is still space due to the way things will adjust.  If you want to get involved Register your game for the event! Get on the waiting list if you have too. How do you Register?  If you’re in the system, hit the registration button to the right. Sign in using your username and password. Hit the event management link to your right. Select the shift you want and show up with your prototypes in hand! If you’re not in the system, the steps are identical…except you have to Sign up for an account and then enter your games into the system. If you have any questions reach out and we’ll do our best to help you. Word of warning: to get the best possible exposure for this event, get registered by midnight Sunday! We’ll be packing up the office and hitting the road, so the more we know before we do that, the better off everyone will be. We are very thankful for the opportunity to be present at a whole...
