TL;DR: Kapcon really needs games in all rounds. If you can run something, please fill out the form here: http://kapcon.org.nz/?q=regform

From the preliminary timetable, this is what we've got:

Round 1: 42 (8 games) + 35 Mega + GOD / 2016: 75 (13 games) + 16 GOD / 2015: 86 (16 games) + GOD
Round 2: 48 (9 games) + 35 Mega + GOD / 2016: 70 (13 games) + 11 GOD / 2015: 85 (13 games) + GOD
Round 3: 25 (4 games) + GOD / 2016: 55 (11 games) + 9 GOD / 2015: 63 (10 games) + GOD
Round 4: 6 (1 game) + GOD / 2016: 5 (1 game) / 2015: 14 (3 games) + GOD
Round 5: 42 (7 games) + GOD + AS / 2016: 55 (10 games) + 21 GOD + AS / 2015: 64 (12 games) + 15 GOD + AS
Round 6: 35 (5 games) + GOD + AS / 2016: 58 (10 games) + 14 GOD + AS / 2015: 72 (11 games) + 15 GOD + AS
Round 7: 16 (3 games) + GOD / 2016: 37 (7 games) + 6 GOD / 2015: 47 (9 games) + 15 GOD

Expected round 4 demand is 8, but there are 36 don't knows. Total attendance is tracking for the same as last year.

Based on this, I think we need:
* 2 or 3 more games in round 1. The Megagame means we're fine on raw numbers, but I don't want to assume every new signup will play it.
* 2 more games in round 2.
* 6 or 7 new games in round 3.
* 1 or 2 new games in round 4.
* 3 or 4 new games in round 5.
* 5 new games in round 6.
* 4 - 5 new games in round 7.

In addition, I need surge protection.

Also, games on demand could still use a few more facilitators - that's another option if there are some games you can run "on demand" and you don't want to get as organised as a regular scheduled slot.

Update: GMs have stepped up in a big way, but we're still short a few. Here's where we are ATM:

Round 1: 46 (9 games) + 43 Mega + 14 GOD / 2016: 75 (13 games) + 16 GOD / 2015: 86 (16 games) + GOD
Round 2: 54 (10 games) + 43 Mega + 16 GOD / 2016: 70 (13 games) + 11 GOD / 2015: 85 (13 games) + GOD
Round 3: 49 (9 games) + 16 GOD / 2016: 55 (11 games) + 9 GOD / 2015: 63 (10 games) + GOD
Round 4: 6 (1 game) + 12 GOD / 2016: 5 (1 game) / 2015: 14 (3 games) + GOD
Round 5: 58 (10 games) + GOD + AS / 2016: 55 (10 games) + 21 GOD + AS / 2015: 64 (12 games) + 15 GOD + AS
Round 6: 55 (9 games) + GOD + AS / 2016: 58 (10 games) + 14 GOD + AS / 2015: 72 (11 games) + 15 GOD + AS
Round 7: 28 (5 games) + GOD / 2016: 37 (7 games) + 6 GOD / 2015: 47 (9 games) + 15 GOD

Current priorities: round 7 (at least 2 games), followed by round 1 (2 games), followed by round 3 (at least 1). A couple for round 4 wouldn't hurt, but its highly variable.
