General Policies

Children – As with all attendees, our goal is that children and their parents have fun while respecting the enjoyment of others. All attendees 11 and older must have a valid Cardboard Caucus badge. Children 10 and under must always be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian; minors age 11-17 must have a responsible guardian present at Cardboard Caucus at all times.

Harassment – Don’t harass the other guests. If you’re being harassed by a guest, please let a Cardboard Caucus organizer know immediately and we will handle it. If anyone engages in harassing behavior, Cardboard Caucus organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion with no refund

Food, Drinks, and Alcohol – Food and drink are available for purchase at the hotel restaurant from 5-10pm. You are allowed to bring in personal consumables. Alcohol is not allowed in the gaming areas.

Sportsmanship – Don’t be a jerk. We’re all here to have fun, so don’t ruin it for somebody else.

Refunds – All refunds are handled through Tabletop.Events.

Badges – No swapping/lending of badges is allowed. Badges should be worn prominently at all times.

Lost Items/Theft – Cardboard Caucus is not responsible for any lost or stolen property.

Smoking – In accordance with Hotel Policy and Local Laws, there is no smoking in the convention area.

Play-to-Win Policies

Participation – To participate in Play-to-Win you must have a valid Cardboard Caucus badge.  To be entered, a badge holder will check-out a game from the Play-to-Win library and upon check-in provide the badge number of every badge holder who played it with them.  You are limited to one entry per check-out, but are able to check-out the same game multiple times during the convention. Participants found, in the opinion of Cardboard Caucus organizers, to be abusing the system by actions including but not limited to, checking out and returning games without actually playing them or holding onto games to prevent others from checking them out, may be disqualified with or without a warning from all Play-to-Win drawings.

Results – Participants are limited to winning one game per badge.  Games will be assigned winners in order of value and/or hotness from highest to lowest, as determined by Cardboard Caucus organizers.  All Play-to-Win results will be announced Sunday early afternoon. If you are unable to be present Sunday afternoon to collect your game, a person with your badge may collect it for you.  Any unclaimed games at the end of the convention will be redistributed at Cardboard Caucus organizers’ discretion.
