Applications for Genius Northwest: HOUSE REDEMPTION are now closed.

HOUSE REDEMPTION is an exclusive three-day gaming competition that will take place in Poulsbo, Washington over the weekend of October 8-10, 2022.

Ten players will descend upon an isolated mansion to compete in a knockout tournament designed to test their instinct, their cunning, and their ability to form and maintain strong alliances. As a player, you will compete in three full days of custom games created specially by our team. These games will be split between large-scale group games and tense one-on-one deathmatches, and all of them will be proctored by our dedicated team of dealers.

After 8 main matches and 8 deathmatches, the final two players will compete in a special finale round to determine who is the true champion of HOUSE REDEMPTION.

In addition, there will be numerous bonus games and other activities to entertain players who are eliminated from the competition early.

Although applications for HOUSE REDEMPTION have now closed, you can sign up for our mailing list to be notified when applications open for our next event.

When is the deadline to apply for HOUSE REDEMPTION?

Applications for HOUSE REDEMPTION closed on August 14, 2022.

Does it cost money to apply to Genius Northwest events?

Applying for Genius Northwest events is free. However, we do ask that all accepted players pay a fee to help cover the costs of running each event. This fee helps us pay for the event venue and provide the players and dealers with food throughout the weekend.

We are happy to offer discounted admission for players for whom this fee would otherwise prevent them from attending.

If I apply for an event, am I guaranteed be able to participate?

While we would love to offer a spot to every player who applies, Genius Northwest events are intimate by design and can support a very limited number of participants. In order to give as many players as possible a chance to experience one of our events, we keep applications open for a limited time, and then select the final participants from the players who have applied for the event.

We will notify selected participants that there is a spot available for them as soon as possible after applications close. Players who are not initially selected will be placed on a waitlist and will be offered spots if one of the selected players declines to participate.

If you are not selected for one Genius Northwest event, we highly encourage you to sign up for the next one!

Can I share Genius Northwest with a friend?

Please do! We are always working to expand our player base. Please note that because we have limited slots available in each event, we cannot guarantee that both you and your friend will be selected for the same event.

Do you require participants to be vaccinated against COVID-19?

Yes, we are currently requiring that all players and hosts be vaccinated against COVID-19 for all of our events

Additionally, we are currently requiring all players and hosts submit proof of a negative COVID PCR test taken within 72 hours of the start of the event they are attending.
