Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
There is no age limit to the event. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is plenty of parking on site. The Brentwood train station is literally 5 minutes away and the hotel will provide a shuttle if you call them when you arrive.
What can/can’t I bring to the event?
No outside food can be brought into the event. No alcohol or recreational drugs of any kind will be allowed at the event. No pets or animals will be admitted to the event.
You may bring games or books to sell at the fleamarket. You may also bring games you intend to play at the event.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
We hope you can make it!
(PS: The cost is $15 ahead of time and $20 at the door. There will be all kinds of boardgames available: Euros, wargames, miniatures, SF and Fantasy plus Zombies! You are invited to bring along your own or join a game already in progress. Plus we will also supply lunch and dinner for free. There will be a flee market, vendors, demos and publisher’s representatives. We will also have a number of designers and developers in attendance, including Hermann Luttmann of “Dawn of the Zeds! and “Thunder in the Ozarks: the Battle of Pea Ridge” fame. I’d think there will be around 5 designers/developers there, at least. Last year the attendance was about 125 people and we’d guess it will be around 140 this year. FATDOG has been held continuously since 1990(?) and it is the largest wargame convention on Long Island. But this is the first year we’ve been in the Upsky hotel. – Fred)
