If someone else purchased your ticket, check with them to make sure they received it.

As a thank you for rolling over your tickets, we are giving you the opportunity to book hotel rooms before we open registration. The link in the e-mail will take you to the booking site for our group, and you will have until Monday, September 28th, at 9:00 am to make your reservations.

Some of you have tickets without names assigned to them, so if you know who will be joining you at Dice Tower East, please provide that information to me as well.  The deadline to assign names to tickets is May 31st.

Combined villa upgrades were sent only to the person whose name the reservation is under.  So if you are combining and don’t see an e-mail, please check first with the other party to see if they received it.  Unfortunately, the Caribe couldn’t add additional e-mail addresses to reservations.  

Any tickets that you purchased with your hotel packages have rolled over as well!  Some of you have tickets that don’t have names assigned to them yet, so if you know who will be joining you at Dice Tower East, please provide that information to me as well.  The deadline to assign names to tickets is May 31st.  

For those of you who purchased tickets only — not to worry.  Your tickets have also rolled over to DTE 2021 and your confirmations will be going out the week of September 21st!

Once your VEEM account is set up, the money should process in 3-5 business days.

May 18, 2020 – CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – We would like to thank all of you for your support and patience as we have been working nonstop concerning Dice Tower East this coming July.  In light of the news about the continuing impact of the Coronavirus, and under the guidance of government and health directives, we have sadly decided to cancel Dice Tower East 2020.  Many factors have gone into this decision, but at the end of the day, it’s the only one to make.  We must protect the health and well-being of our publishers, attendees, and staff, and cancelling is simply the best way to do that.

Our partners, The Florida Hotel and Whet Travel, have been responsive and fair with us and we appreciate their partnerships.  We would also like to thank our Premier Sponsor, Portal Games; our Hot Games Sponsor, Board & Dice; and each of our exhibitors for their generous support of Dice Tower East, and we look forward to our continued relationships with them.  

While the formal gathering for fun and games may be cancelled for 2020, we are planning a special on-line event for attendees during that same time period!  The Dice Tower Summer Spectacular will be held on June 30th – July 4th, and we will have some fun events with special guests.  

Also, the Dice Tower will be partnering with Board Game Geek to create a virtual convention to all BGG.Spring and Dice Tower East attendees who registered to come this year.  The dates are June 24th – June 28th, and more information will be announced soon.

We are looking forward to better times when we can safely play games together again.  We also want to give special thanks to all of the healthcare workers, first responders and other essential workers who have faced more risks than most during these unsettling times.  Please take care of yourselves, take care of others, and stay safe.

 

April 16, 2020 – CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – We are continuing to monitor the news and information about the Coronavirus and as of today, Dice Tower East 2020 is still on for July 1st – 5th as originally planned. However, we realize that this situation is rapidly fluctuating and that our dates may be at risk. We are working with The Florida Hotel and Whet Travel to determine our options, and we will have more definitive information for you by mid-May. Your health and safety are extremely important to us and always at the forefront of the decisions we are making for Dice Tower East. We will announce any changes and updates on our Facebook and Twitter pages and our website.

 

 

Mar. 19, 2020 – CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – We are constantly monitoring the news of the Coronavirus and information released by the CDC and state and local health departments.  At this time, we have no plans to cancel or postpone Dice Tower East and our ticket and hotel package transfer policy remains in place.  However, we realize that things are rapidly changing.  If new information and regulations affecting large gatherings being held during the summer are introduced, we will immediately reevaluate our decisions and post updates to our Facebook and Twitter pages and on our website. We want Dice Tower East to be a fantastic, fun time, and the health and well-being of our attendees is very important to us.  It is still too early to know how things will look for July and what restrictions might be in place.  As we continue to watch how this situation progresses, we will keep you updated as we have new information.
