On-Site Activities

THERE'S PLENTY TO DO AT GDQ!

During the event, on-site we have a lot of things to do, scheduled and ongoing!

TOURNAMENTS

Tournaments are a constant at GDQ, and this time is no different! However, now we plan on recording the finals of tournaments, so people's wins can be recorded for posterity. You can submit a tournament at any time, even during the event itself if you want to get an impromptu bracket going, but they need to be submitted so we can schedule the room time.

Due to Nintendo's new Community Guidelines, unfortunately GDQ is unlicensed and unable to assist in scheduling or running tournaments for first party Nintendo titles. We apologize for the situation.

ARCADE

Arcade machines, we got'em! Open 24/7 during the event, come down and play some classic arcades!

BOARD GAME ROOM

The Board Game Room is back! Need a nice table to spread out a board game and play with friends? Is it time for mahjong? The board game room is here for you! Open 24/7 during the event! Don't worry if you don't have a game, as we will have a library of them to check out and play in the room!

Please note that due to covid concerns, we will be running board games through a UV sterilizer lamp. This can potentially degrade game pieces, so be advised if you are bringing games that the potential for fading pieces exists.

CASUAL GAMING ROOM

Tons of TVs ready to be hooked up for gaming, bring your own console and games or ask for one from the World9 desk!

KUSOGRANDE LIVE

That's right, Kusogrande at AGDQ2024, live and in person! Brossentia will be hosting a weeklong tournament from noon - 4 PM every weekday of the event! Sign up here for the first round on Monday!

Kusogrande is a video game tournament focused on blind races of strange or flawed games. We welcome players of all skill levels to join!

The first matches on Monday will be a high score attempt. The 16 highest scores will form a single elimination bracket. During the bracket, if any players do not show up, we will ask for volunteers from the audience to fill their slot - if multiple volunteer, the one who scored highest during Monday's high score attempt will be chosen to participate!

THE SPEEDRUN GAUNTLET

Located in the Practice Room, GDQ presents The Speedrun Gauntlet! Monday through Friday, each day will have a different selection of four games and goals to accomplish as fast as possible! There will be multiple practice setups to practice all those speedrun strats, and one machine where you can compete for the day's leaderboard!
