2015 is turning out to be the best year ever and we’re going to celebrate it with you at every turn we get. Starting with bringing back FFFPT!

Or Facebook Fan Festival Party Time as it’s known on “the streets.”

You feel me?

You feel me?

Yeah you do.

You feel me.

Stay in school.

Stay in school!

That’s right. The moment that Gamma Ray Games Facebook page hits 1900 likes, I do a special dance,

and I hand out FREE T-SHIRTS to the first 19 unsuspecting people that walk through the door.

Mailman! Free shirt. Lady with a baby who wants to use the bathroom. Free shirts. For both of you. Baby gets a mens small. He’ll grow into it. Pee Wee Herman? What are you doing here? Free Shirt. Also mens small because… you’ll look great. Really. Just go with me on this. Whoa! Not that far, Pee Wee! My god, man! Decorum. You, walking in unexpectedly on Pee Wee and I, “lalalalala,” FREE SHIRT.

It’s just that goddamn easy! Free shirts for everybody forever!*

-Eric

*First 19 people to walk through the door only, don’t listen to Eric when he gets like this. The breakfast cereal will wear off soon. -Amy

Geek Girl Con

It’s GeekGirlCon at the Washington State Convention Center this weekend and we have three possible ways for you to participate this year.

First, you can simply go. Why not? It’s right down the street! You’re a woman. Or someone who respects and supports them. And you’re a geek. You are! Oh, okay, maybe you’re a nerd. Or a dweeb. Where’s that handy chart when I need it? Look my point is, own whatever you are and how you define yourself. Embrace it. Be out and be proud. Be you, whoever you are. Then go have some fun, make some friends and discover some new things around some shared interests at Geek Girl Con. Let your geek flag fly.

We have one day advance passes available at the shop for $20, full weekend passes available $35 and kids day passes available for only $5. Five dollars!!?! That’s some serious family entertainment value right there, let me tell you! We’re open every day from noon until 8pm from now until this weekend so you could pick them up whenever it’s convenient for you.

Second, if you’re more the hands-on behind-the-scenes type, we’ve got a couple of volunteer opportunities available this year. We could use one person to help us set up our booth on Friday and someone to check in on us a couple of times a day on Saturday and Sunday. None of these opportunities is particularly strenuous, all include a custom t-shirt and free pass for the day that you’re volunteering and provide a unique backstage view of the convention. If you’re interested, send an inquiry email to gammaraygamestore@gmail.com and let me know what your interests and availability are.

And thirdly, and finally, though we’re not throwing an official GGC welcome party this year, if you’re flying in from out of town on Friday and would like to check out our Raygun Lounge while you’re in town, we would love to have you join us for our One Year Anniversary and Kickstarter Fulfillment Party on Friday night.
