STRETCH GOALS!! ʕ•`ᴥ•´ʔ

Since GaymerX is run by our community, we wanted to give you all a chance to help us make it awesome!

We’ve added several stretch goals to help us do more! We really need your help to reach out to your friends, the ones who are gonna get that last minute day-of ticket, and make sure they get their tickets and back this campaign ASAP! Getting your tickets NOW makes it a lot easier for us to potentially expand and open up more tickets!

SPEAKING OF TICKETS, we are also opening up more early bird tickets! Some of you noticed and messaged us about how quickly they sold out. It seems like we’re going to be selling out sooner than usual this year!!

Below are the stretch goals we’re looking to reach! Once the campaign is complete, we will also be able to put ticket sales towards these goals as well, so the more tickets we sell the closer we get as well! ୧ʕ•̀ᴥ•́ʔ୨

It really isn’t a lot to raise so please keep spreading the word and also giving us your feedback because at the end of the day that’s gonna be a big factor in what we do!!

GaymerX Year Four is a GO!!
