Day of Games 2012

Postby Sophmelc » Sat Dec 17, 2011 2:34 am

Day of Games is on and official.

When: May 5th, 2012
Where: Brooklyn Community Centre, Harrison St, Brooklyn
How much: $20 for the whole day, $15 for less than the whole day (yes even one session)
How long: 9am till 11pm

What is it?
Day of Games is based on the highly successful Games on Demand format seen at Kapcon. At the beginning of each round facilitatiors pitch one or two games they're really psyched about. The rest of the players vote on the games that interest them and that is what gets run. This sort of con suits highly improvised games more than 'traditional' fare, but if you want to offer it go right ahead!

This year a small larp for 8-10 people will be offered in the evening. It's called Watch the Skies and is about a 1950s UFO cult.

What time of year was it last year? If I'm in town (late April or later) I'll be there.

So far it's always been in May. Kind of a halfway point between Kapcon and Confusion. I can't see that changing if I'm the person running it next year.

Ok I've looked at the calendar and I think it will be the first weekend of May again, which is the 5th or 6th. Any preference for a Saturday or Sunday?
