GRAND PRIZE event: Sponsored by ZOTAC®

Grand Prize for Beta Weekend Top Ranking Player - sponsored by ZOTAC®To thank players for participating in the GottaCon Retro Gaming Experience (Beta Weekend), we’ve partner with ZOTAC® to award the highest ranked player with a ZOTAC® ZBOX EI730 (a $700 CDN value). Players will be awarded points throughout the weekend for participating in Beta Events. To find your current ranking, visit the Score Board now! The GRAND PRIZE event will run until Sunday, March 2nd 3PM with the GRAND PRIZE winner being announced at 4:30PM via email.

To be eligible to win the ZOTAC® Grand Prize during the GottaCon Retro Gaming Experience (Beta Weekend), players must be registered (which includes signing up for the CHRONOVENTURES email newsletter). Players compete throughout the weekend to complete mini-puzzles scattered throughout the simulated convention experience. Additional points can be incurred by completing achievements (such as unlocking all of the convention areas).

Need help getting started? Here are some tips to start collecting points towards the GRAND PRIZE while linked into the GottaCon ARG event, powered by CHRONOZONE™ technology.

NOTICE: Prizes are awarded to avatars who are still plugged into the beta experience through to Sunday at 5PM. If you are in the top leaderboard position come Sunday and you are not on site to collect your prize by 5PM, the prize will be awarded to a runner up*.

*Out of Game Clarification: If you are not available, in person, to collect your prize from the Special Events desk by 5PM on Sunday, March 2nd, you forfeit the win. There will be no exceptions – we will not allow players to collect prizes on behalf of other players – it is simply not fair to those gamers who stay all weekend. You will need to show a valid Sunday-access (or full-weekend) GottaCon pass and your ID to collect the prize.

Getting Started:

While many of the activities available to GottaCon ARG (Beta Weekend) players are hidden in game to encourage gamers to experience the environment as if they were really there, certain activities have been added to the Beta Weekend to award Beta gamers points towards the GRAND PRIZE that will be awarded in-game on Sunday. Players are encouraged to interact with NPCs throughout the weekend to find additional points, but here are a few events that will help get you started:

• Ready New Player Email: Scavenger Hunt (email)
• Installing WANDA simulation for Beta ticket reporting (special events)
• Unlocking convention locations (QR scanning RED markers)
• Engaging with retro media (newsprint)
