The registration fee, also called the venue fee, is a one-time cost that every player must pay when entering any number of tournaments or coming to play games casually in the bring-your-own-console area.  Entering one tournament, or five, still only costs you the venue fee one time. The venue fee goes toward paying for the event hall, production, badges, staff, equipment and other costs, while the tournament fees themselves go 100% directly into the prize pool for each game. You must be at least 13 years of age to compete in any official tournaments.

All badges include access to the entire venue for the weekend. Spectators receive the same access but may not enter any official tournaments.
