What is Recess? – Recess is a quarterly gameday hosted by NerdNYC. Recess exists to provide opportunities for our attendees to socialize and play. None of the games require any previous experience and rules will be taught as needed. We want every person attending Recess to have good time. Anyone who cannot play nicely with others will be asked to leave (without refund). This has never happened, please help us keep it that way!
How do I sign up to play games? – Registration for games is done on site. We put up the sign up sheets a half hour before the two blocks of games begin. Make sure you show up on time to sign up! To be fair to all, you are only allowed to sign-up for yourself. Since there are limits to how many people can play any given game, It is entirely possible that some games get filled up early. Don't worry if you didn't get into a game that appealed to you – that's just an opportunity to play something else that you may not have otherwise considered!
What will the food situation be like at Recess? – The area around the 440 Studios is chock full of places for food and beverages. There is a two hour break between sessions to allow people to get food and come back without missing any scheduled events.
Is there any other way I can help out besides running a game? – Occasionally we need additional help. In those instances we'll put a call out for volunteers well in advance of the Recess date. So keep an eye out!
I've got cool nerd-stuff I'd like to share with the world, what do i do? – A Recess tradition is the "Swap Table". This is a place for attendees to leave any nerdy gear (books, games, art, toys, videos, etc.) that they no longer want or have space for. Anything placed on the Swap Table is considered to be free for anyone to take. If you bring items for the Swap Table, please check at the end of the day and take any unclaimed items home with you!
Got a question or concerns? – The Recess Staff and NerdNYC officers will be available throughout the day. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
