Jam Site Description: 

Come join us for the 2018 edition of Global Game Jam at the Facebook campus in Menlo Park, CA! We'll do everything we can to make you feel at home while you make new friends, stretch your skills, and team up to create your own amazing games.

Please make sure to register on our ticket site. Tickets are nominally $5, but we'll refund that if you check in at HQ on Friday evening. We will require you to have a ticket to attend; you must have a ticket, be 21 or older, and be willing to sign our usual visitor NDA.

Parking on Friday will be limited, and we'd really appreciate it if you could use a ride-share service or taxi. If you do need to park, make sure to arrive early. Things will ease up considerably on Saturday and Sunday.

As always, this site doesn't have a competition. Everyone makes games, everyone shows off what they've made at the end, and in the middle we all eat together. We've had the most fun when teams work together and new teammates are welcome, so we're going to keep doing that.

Bring a sleeping bag and pad if you're planning to stay overnight - the floor is hard. But everything else is as awesome as we can make it.
