If you want to UN-reserve a spot in one of those events, just be clear about it in your email, and we will delete you appropriately. Each time you send more information, we will send you back your up-to-date schedule.
We will reply within 48 hours with a confirmation that your reservations were received. If you do NOT get a confirmation, assume that your codes are NOT received and try again. Note that you MUST include a valid eMail reply-to address for us to reach you to confirm!

Q0001: The $1,000 Team Space Marine Championship. Bring your team, or join one on site. Up to eight teams of five players each will take part in a tense, vicious tournament of strategy and guts! Each team consists of a Captain, who uses a bolter and a power melee weapon, three regular squad members with bolters, and a Marine with a heavy weapon. Randomly allocated rounds will be run by normal Warhammer 40,000 squad rules, with one side representing Space Marines and the other side Chaos Space Marines. A team wins by decimating the other side! The battlefield will be randomly set with full-scale scenery for each round, and actual line-of-sight will be used for each decision. The Captain must lead his team to fight cooperatively and intelligently every step of the way. The four teams with the best record will move on to the final rounds, and the winning team will receive $1,000 in CASH ($200 per player). SPECIAL NOTE: Double Exposure reserves the right to revoke the cash prize if participation falls below 30 players. Thursday, 6:00PM - 12:00AM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Fun, All Ages.
Q0002: The $5,000 Interactive Puzzle Challenge. Thirty players will enter a huge room on Friday morning. The room will be filled with items, art, games, sounds, music, letters, numbers and all sorts of strange clues. The door will lock behind them - if anyone leaves, they cannot re-enter and they are removed from the event. The players then have five hours to make sense of the chaos and find the FINAL ANSWER that will win the jackpot. The players can work independently, or together (either in separate groups or as a whole community). They can work at whatever pace they'd like - but time runs against them. A five-hour countdown timer ticks continuously, and each hour that passes lowers the jackpot by $1,000. If the FINAL ANSWER remains hidden when time expires, the game is over. Each player starts with 100 credits and a Clue Envelope. During the game, the players can trade credits for information or help, or just about anything. The Clue Envelope is worth 100 credits, but ONLY if it remains sealed. Each player must decide whether to preserve their Clue Envelope, open it, or trade it. If the FINAL ANSWER is discovered, the player who finds it earns 6,000 credits. The jackpot will then be distributed among all the players based on percentage of credits - in CASH. Friday, 8:00AM - 2:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Serious, All Ages.

Q0006: Pacific Rim; "Rise of Tiburon" by Nerdy City. A DEXCON 17 EXCLUSIVE! It's 2023 and the Jaeger Program is already in peril. Authorities cite the fall of Gipsy Danger in Anchorage against the deadly Category 3 Kaiju Knifehead as an example of the failure of the Jaeger program. However, In the Pacific Northwest, The Sea-Tac Shatterdome Outpost has learned that the Breach is dilating, and the world's first Category 4 Kaiju, Codename: Tiburon, is heading straight for Seattle. The Miracle Mile is in peril. Their finest Jaeger, the Mark 3 juggernaut known as Bedlam Armada, is being sent to fight the beast, but no other Jaegers are available. The Mark 1 Jaeger Echo Thunderhead lies in pieces around the Shatterdome as it is being repaired, but piloting the old thing is a deadly proposition. Vancouvers' Shatterdome is sending the Mark 3 Falcon Chevalier as fast as they can, but due to the storms it could be valuable hours - hours Seattle doesn't have. The pilots of Bedlam Armada are counting on you - they'll need every single department of the Pan-Pacific Defense Corps operating at peak efficiency to win. There's a threat uncoiling in the Shatterdome, though. The rumors of the presence of an extremist Kaiju-Worshipping terrorist group, the dread Gu Chongbai, has internal security putting a lockdown on the edifice, trapping military personal, scientists, and refugees within until the threat is abated. Meanwhile, the Miracle Mile off Seattle's coast is woefully under-protected, and only time will tell if Tiburon will leave anything - or anyone - standing. character creation can be done before game at event L0009: The LARP Bazaar (Wednesday Night at 10:00PM).

Q0007: Travelers of Ki'Mara; "Ghosts of the Fallen Skyship" by Steam Powered Media, Inc.. A DEXCON 17 EXCLUSIVE! Many days have passed since your group was separated from the Caravan in the dark and hostile jungle. What few supplies you carried on you dwindle and are expended while you desperately search for the others. Suddenly, your path opens into a large clearing and an impossible sight is revealed; the moss-covered corpse of a colossal airship, crashed and cracked to pieces far beyond the reaches of civilization. Who constructed such a wondrous feat of technology, and what brought this flying titan down? The answers must lie within the behemoth itself. So too does a chance at shelter from the vicious wildlife, and with any luck, the supplies you need to survive. On the other hand, it pays to remember that some things on this wild frontier are best left buried... Ghosts of the Fallen Skyship offers a unique experience; enter play in the heart of the jungle, light your gas lamps, and forge your own path through the rusted corpse of a massive, retro-futuristic airship. Choose your allies and together search the ruin for supplies and secrets, but be careful who you trust, for desperation and the cover of darkness can lead to a knife in your back - and what you find within may make this place your tomb. Solve the mystery of the airship's rise and fall by piecing together clues found throughout the maze-like ruin. Powerful relics of the past and impossible wonders of technology lie in every direction, and if you survive, can be taken with you on the Caravan. Three well-hidden items can be turned in after the event for bonus XP and free admission to a full weekend game for you and two friends!
