Games on Demand at Kapcon 2017

Originally shared by Michael Sands

This is for people within reach of Wellington, New Zealand in January:

Would you like to help facilitate Games on Demand at Kapcon 2017? (see http://kapcon.rpg.net.nz/)

Necessary qualifications are:

– You would like to run some games, and okay with exactly which game it is being decided right then on the day.

Low-preparation games are obviously stars here, but games/adventures with prep done in advance are great too (as long as it can be played on demand!) You also get to claim the GM’s reduced entry fee and preferential game picks.

My plan this year is to have each facilitator offer either 2 or 4 games, which I’ll use to make a menu of games, with a picture and game info.

I’ll be aiming to do something like this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5pV27F3R0veSkNFWTBZWUhzM1k

Have a think about if you’d like to take part, and let me know (either PM here or email to mike@genericgames.co.nz).

No need to decide which games or how many sessions you would like to facilitate yet – we’ll do that later.

Games on Demand at Midwinter

Midwinter Gaming Convention LogoMidwinter Gaming Convention, taking place January 12-15, 2017, is looking for volunteers for a new Games on Demand event! The goal is to offer the Midwinter crowd a chance to try out a variety of creator owned/small press RPGs, especially those that are not already represented at the convention. In addition to Games on Demand, the Indie Game Designers Network will also be at the show, so there should be a good mix of indie games.

If you’re interested in volunteering, sign up using this Google form!

Dragon Con 2016

Please share with anyone who might be interested.

DragonCon is almost upon us so it is time to get a organized. If you are unfamiliar with what Games on Demand, or someone has forwarded this to you, GoD is almost a mini-con within the con. We are a group of volunteers that offer to run games with an emphasis on serving people new to the hobby or experienced gamers wanting to try out new or small press games.

We have two forms for volunteers to fill out and get started. The Scheduling Form everyone needs to fill out so I can make sure we have a steady supply of volunteers all day. The second form only needs to be filled out by people planning to run games.

Let me know if you are interested but haven’t received an email from Drew Owen  and we’ll get you the links. Looking forward to having some fun down south!

Freeform Larps on Demand at Gen Con

god_gen_con_logoDid you know that this year you can pre-register for Freeform Larps on Demand? You can, and you should!

Gen Con Event Registration – Freeform Larps on Demand

Come try a variety of short, live-action games that blend LARP & tabletop gaming to produce amazing stories with a small group. Our diverse GMs will introduce you to some of the great freeform live-action games developed over the years around the world. These games aren’t your traditional boffer larp, but instead blend larp and tabletop gaming, allowing you to physically embody your character and play out a story with a small group.

Scenarios will be chosen by players at the beginning of the session. Nothing required but a sense of adventure!
