I have been running events for the past five or so years and I have a steady following of players who try and get tickets every year to my events. Many times they can only get a few so they bring generics and I always let them into the game.
Knowing this I have dropped my number of participants from 8 to 6 figuring that I can run for as many as 10 players.
This is the first year that I noticed the "Invite Only" option while registering my games. I am wondering how it works when I select that option.
Am I allowed to send out a specific number of invites? Maybe as many as I have listed as maximum participants?
What if my normal crew of players cannot attend? Can I change to the open ticket format?
I am asking because my game is a continuation of previous year's games and I want the same crew to be able to play, but I hate the thought of not being able to add new players if needed.
Thanks in advance for any insight on this!
A couple notes:
We're happy to find space for you, we just won't reserve it ahead of time.
Submit your game as you intend to run it, and run it as it was submitted to the best of your ability.
