Announcing The 2014 ESGN Gamer Retreat

Posted Image

ESGN is excited to announce the next ESGN Gamer Retreat is here! It’s back to the Central Coast McMansion for a week(7 nights) of gaming greatness! There are a total of 14 places available for guests at this event so get in quick to secure you place!

This time round we are taking it to another level by providing a qualified Chef to prepare our meals for the entire week. That’s ESGN’s very own personal Chef , Ryan Marsden cooking up 3 delicious meals a day for your culinary enjoyment.

Picture getting your game on in true luxury surrounds. This luxury multi million dollar Mansion is truly amazing. With six spacious bedrooms and a huge rumpus room with multiple comfortable accommodation options. The place also has a fantastic heated swimming pool, a full size pool table, table tennis and a huge lounge room, or “War Room” as we like to call it big enough to accommodate 16 gaming stations.

There will be a great mix of structured gaming and free play experiences throughout the week long retreat. We will supply a network switch and network cables to connect everyone for some epic 16 player LAG FREE LAN action!.

Will it be XBONE or PS4 that rules at the retreat? I guess only time will tell! And of course Xbox 360’s and any other consoles you would like to bring along are also welcome.

But it’s not just all about gaming, the beach is close by for anyone who’s keen and we also have a range of interesting optional extra activities including paintball, deep sea fishing, quad biking, kayaking, abseiling, horse riding, a group cinema experience and nights out on the town. More details about the optional activities will be posted over the coming weeks. This will give you plenty of time to pre-pay for these events at your convenience. These retreats are all about doing as much or as little as you like, the choice is yours.

It wouldn’t be a Turtle Beach Gamer’s Retreat without Turtle Beach headsets and Turtle Beach will be providing a range of the latest and greatest headsets they have to offer for you to try out at the Retreat. And one lucky attendee will win a Premium Turtle Beach headset to keep and of course there will be other sweet Turtle Beach swag to give away. There will also be a range of other prizes up for grabs over the week as well including games, shirts and other swag from our ever increasing list of publishing partners.

And as a special offer, the first 12 people to secure their place by paying their deposit can choose one of the following two awesome early bird offers:

Offer 1 - Pax Aus 3 day pass. This event is sold out months ago and we have six 3 day passes to giveaway. ESGN will be running the console tournament at PAX AUS, so be sure to drop in and say G’Day! Dates are the 19th to the 21st of July 2013 and this event is being held in Melbourne.

Offer 2 - Complimentary week-long hire of a 40” 1080p 100hz LCD TV. Leave your TV at home and let us provide you with a great Sharp Aquos LCD TV for your week of gaming goodness. It couldn’t be easier!

These retreats are highly regarded and considered a legendary experience amongst previous attendees of these events. Here are some testimonials from some of our members that have experienced these awesome events:

Dr Awkward - "The original gamers retreat "Punchtacular" was a veritable smorgasbord of games, food, friends and fun. The guys at ESGN are gamers and as such know exactly what gamers want...and deliver it in bulk. One of the most fun weeks I've ever had. If you can go, do it, you won't regret it!"

iTzBoLiNG - "I recently went to Thailand for a holiday, it was pretty good, Punchtac was better!"

LoraxTheMighty - "I would go so far as to say that it was one of my favourite holidays in recent years. Gaming and socialising with such an awesome group of people, everything run so smoothly I felt like I was a true VIP. I can’ wait to book in leave for the next one."

Ruzta - "Started with a bus ride from the airport organised by the host with the most, Doxsic. A small group of us got to know each other before entering the house. This house was awesome, it was perfect for what was planned for the next week. We were shown to our beds and then proceeded to set up our stations for a week of video-gaming.

Began with some drinks about town, it was a great way to break the ice a bit. Spending a week with similar minded guys, freedom to play games when you want and unlimited food. It was POA all over. Even some friendly competitions helped keep the interest going.

You couldn't have asked for a better way to spend the week as a gamer. If you ever have the opportunity to attend a punchtacular event,do it! The boys will make sure its a great week."

Terms and Conditions

The Turtle Beach ESGN Gamer Retreat 2014 commences on Wednesday the 12th of March 2014 at 4pm and concludes on Monday the 10th of June 2013 at 9am.

The Gamer Retreat is an 18+ event.

A $200 deposit is payable to secure your booking. Following the initial $200 deposit you can choose to pay the rest of your trip off in installments or all in one go. All payments are due in full by Monday the 3rd of February 2014.

Payment of the $200 deposit entitles the payee to their choice of either one PAX AUS 3 day pass(of which there are only 6) OR free week-long hire of one 40” Sharp Aquos LCD TV(of which there are only 6.) These are on a first in first served basis until sold out.

If in the unforeseeable situation that The Gamer Retreat 2014 doesn’t fill all its positions by Friday the 3rd of February 2014, then a decision will be made by the ESGN owners as to whether the retreat will proceed. If the Retreat is canceled at this stage, then all monies paid by all guests will be refunded.

After the 3rd of February 2014, if you have committed yourself to attending this event then it is expected that you will attend. And in the event of you being unable to attend the event, then we suggest you try and sell your place to another interested party as no refunds will be offered for the accommodation portion, however, refunds of the $200 per head food and drink package will be refunded to cancelled bookings. People pulling out last minute would impact the entire group so we say again, be certain you can attend before signing up.
