“Great group of people to game with and absolutely terrific staff! Highly recommend and I will be back!”Dan GagichJanuary 25, 2018
“Great time, fun events, good people, what more do you need besides computer games to top all of that off. Can't wait for the next one”Jared SellarsApril 29, 2017
“The volunteer crew did an excellent job setting up(as always), pre-run power and ethernet, plus strong wifi was a major benefit(I got signal out in the parking lot well away from the event room). Food and drink were plentiful, and the event sold out, so there were lots of kindred spirits to game with. I have been to several of these and it gets better every time(continuous improvement)”Nathan WilliamsNovember 19, 2016
“Great atmosphere, great games, good food and game juice. 10/10 would play again”Andrew WilhelmMay 22, 2016
“Awesome community! Some of the nicest folks to game with.”Jacob GrantJune 8, 2015

Frequently Asked Questions
Well, sort of. We’re seriously stoked if you’re interested in coming regardless of what you think about the church or religion in general. In fact, we consider it a privilege that you would join us. During the event, there is a short talk called “Story Time” where we give a challenge for Christians and non-Christians alike.
If you are under 18 you need a parent, guardian or an approved responsible adult to be present at all times you are on the premises.
If you’re just interested in checking out the action, just come and join us! If you don’t own a computer, hit us up on Discord to see if there’s perhaps a loaner you can borrow. We typically have loaner PCs available to rent as well.
Every event we host at Forge Gaming has underlying costs, which we try to keep to a minimum. The cost of entry helps us defray incurred costs like food, beverage, network and server infrastructure, power cables and door prizes.
We have separate rooms for guys and gals to sleep in, some people end up falling asleep at their seats, or not sleeping at all! We try to have dark rooms for guys and gals respectively away from the main event area that you can set up a sleeping bag or inflatable mattress to sleep on. If it’s comfy, go ahead and bring it!
