– 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.
Midwinter 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.
Last call for GMs at U-Con Gaming Convention Games on Demand track.
Games On Demand gives you the opportunity to drop by and play (or run!) new and interesting games throughout the show. The event is organized and run by friendly volunteers, and serves as a showcase for the most exciting small press tabletop games available.
Only 1 week remains to get on the schedule. Join us now. Hotel rooms are also still available in the room block for the con.
If you’re a GM or game designer interested in attending U-Con in Ann Arbor, Michigan, consider volunteering for the new Games On Demand room!

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!
In just two days, starting at 10am on Thursday, the Games on Demand crew will be running a huge selection of their favorite games! If you’ll be at Gen Con, come join us in the Marriott Downtown Hotel, Ballroom 6 on the second floor!
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!
