High Score Esports Terms of Participation

At High Score, we believe that video games are one of the greatest forms of entertainment and they can bring people together. Our goal, as always, is to create a space where people can come and play games they love and enjoy. The safety of the gaming community, our employees/agents, and all that attend High Score is of the utmost importance.

As such, we need you to know the following:

  • The obvious stuff
    We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason. Surveillance cameras are in use throughout our facilities and events.
  • Identification
    Everyone must have a valid form of picture identification (drivers license or state ID) to enter our events. We promise to not make fun of your photo, unless it’s spectacular!
  • Registration
    All guests will need to register with the check-in team. It'll be quick and simple. Any adult with minors will need to provide their names as well.
  • Profanity
    Hey, we know gaming is fun and exciting and sometimes you let it slip. But we are a community-driven organization and often it isn’t acceptable. Not only that, we frequently have active live streams running. So please, try to be courteous.
  • Impairment
    We want you to have a good time. Just not TOO good of a time. If we feel you have overdone it, we’ll ask you to leave and/or call you a ride. If you arrive impaired, you won’t be allowed to enter our events.
  • Weapons
    We don’t permit any weapons in or around our premises. None of any kind, not even gravity guns and most certainly not the BFG. This includes any item that may look like a weapon, save that stuff for the awesome cosplay outfit you’re working on.
  • Listen
    The High Score team is the final word. Failing to follow their instructions will result in your immediate removal and your registration will be flagged. You may be banned from our events permanently.
  • Backpacks
    Sorry. We just can’t take the chance and hey, you don’t want us snooping through your stuff. Please leave them at home or in your car.
  • Food and Beverage
    No outside food or beverage is allowed in the facilities unless previously approved by management. We may allow you to bring your own booze, but you better ask us first. Of course, underage drinking is strictly prohibited.
  • Searches
    Speaking of snooping. Sometimes (at management discretion) we’ll need to perform a search of your purse, bag, fight stick, or you. We’ll be gentle, but if you don’t allow it you’ll have to leave.
  • Lost Stuff
    We’ll do our best to hang on to things left behind. But, just like the dry cleaner, we can’t keep it forever. As such, High Score is not responsible for lost items of any kind.
  • Other illegal stuff
    Don’t bring any drugs, stolen items, paraphernalia, or anything that may be considered contraband into our facility. If we suspect it, we’ll search. If we find it, we’ll notify the authorities. Don’t be that person.
  • Finally the legal stuff
    We strictly prohibit the following:

    • Failing to follow the instructions of, or verbally or physically harassing, High Score employees and agents;
    • Loitering or behaving in a way that is: unruly, disruptive, disrespectful or harmful;
    • Using abusive or obscene language or gestures;
    • Smoking inside or anywhere within 30 feet of our facilities. This includes the use of electronic cigarettes and vaporizers;
    • Impairment related to drug or alcohol consumption;
    • Possessing or consuming alcohol by a minor on our premises, or in contravention of our alcohol policies or contrary to applicable laws;
    • Damaging any property or the premises (including surrounding property or premises such as the parking areas);

    Failure to abide by the Terms of Participation will result in a warning, removal, or ban depending on the offense.

  • Sometimes it's risky
    • Including by way of example and not limitation, any risks that may arise from negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons or entities being released, from dangerous or defective equipment or property owned, maintained, or controlled by them, or because of their possible liability without fault
    • In consideration of permitting participation in events or activities, all attendees hereby take action for their own actions
