The esteemed Symposium Games Pin awarded to the champions of each game.
The Steampunk Empire Symposium is just a few weeks away and so are the Symposium Games. Each registered airship or group will of course be wanting to know where and when to send their representatives to compete. Below you will find the scheduled times for each official event taking place in the BLUE ASH ROOM at the hotel. There are six events (races or games) in the Blue Ash room that will be worth championship points. There are also other events in other rooms throughout the weekend that will also be worth points. I will list those events and their locations below as well. There MAY be other unscheduled ways to earn points, so keep your ears open once you arrive at the symposium.
