Friday October 12th to Sunday October 14th, 2018!


You can pick up your badge/s at check-in Thursday night or any time during show hours at the Registration booth in VCC East. The person who purchased the tickets will need to pickup all badges bought under their name with photo-ID. If you will not be checking in with the person who purchased your ticket – and you have not already let me know – please get the person who booked the tickets to email me with the name and email address of the person picking up their badge/s.



Join Seattle MegaGames for a full day of intrigue and subterfuge! There will be a different game each day, so pick the one that excites you the most. Tickets can be purchased in USD or CAD, make sure you choose your home currency. And please note you must have a SHUX ticket to join a MegaGame.



Want to help SMG run these MegaGames, and get a comped ticket to SHUX to boot? We could use the help! Fill out the form here and let us know you’re interested!

MegaGames FAQ

Q: Do I need a SHUX ticket to play in a MegaGame?
A: You do! We will be running these games from within the SHUX enclave.


Q: Can I be on a team with my friends?
A: Of course! We prioritize keeping friends together, above all else. We’ll be reaching out via email to all players to help assign teams and roles; check your inbox and let us know who you’d like to play with!


Q: Do I need a full team in order to sign up?
A: Not at all – we take groups of all sizes, including solo players. We’ll make sure everyone is matched up with a team, and put you in touch with your teammates a week before the game starts!


Q: What do I need to bring?
A: You don’t need to bring anything, but many players enjoy dressing for their role. We may even give out bonuses to teams that are particularly well-coordinated. (Shhhh, don’t tell anyone I told you!)


Q: Lunch?
A: Outside food may not be allowed in the venue, so we’ll be taking a break during the day for lunch.


Q: Do I have to be there the whole day?
A: Yes (with one exception). The epic scale of a MegaGame is part of what makes it such a unique and memorable experience. However, we know that your convention time is precious! That’s why we’ve designed a new MegaGame that is played in timeslots of a few hours throughout the day. Check it out here!


Q: How can I find out about MegaGames in my area?
A: If you’re in the Seattle area, follow Seattle MegaGames on Facebook for updates! Otherwise, check out the MegaGame SocietyMegagame Makers, and Megagames International for games happening all around the world!
