Tournament FAQ

All information is tentative and subject to change at any time.

Where can I find the tournament schedule?

You’re looking at it. Just scroll up a bit.

How do I sign up for a tournament?

Tournament signups will be available in the Tournament room until right before the tournament begins. We are only accepting signups in-person at this event. If you’re concerned about missing your signup or your tournament, please reach out to the Console DH.

Do the tournaments cost anything extra?

Nope! Entry into the tournaments is free.

Can I bring my own controller/stick?

Of course! Because of the state of the world at large and since Ohayocon 23 will be in-person, we encourage you to bring your own equipment to use to limit the spread of any con flu or COVID at the event.

Please be advised, though, that Ohayocon is not liable for any damage or loss of property at con. Keep an eye on your belongings and don’t leave them unattended!

What about prizing?

All tournament winners will be getting a free badge to next year’s Ohayocon!

Who can I talk to with any other questions?

You can email Meg, the Console Gaming Department Head, directly.

We’re also participating in the Ribbon Game! By visiting each Gaming Department, you can get an exclusive ribbon marking you as a Certified Gamer for all to see and an official member of the “Gaming Cult”.
