HEY GAMERS ON DEMAND!
Feelin’ underappreciated? Unloved? Here’s a little snippet from a thread at rpg.net called “What cool thing are you doing at Gen Con?” to set your heart right:
“The games on demand crew were great last year. I had had trouble with my log in, so had very little booked until the last minute last year. As I live in the UK, this was my first gencon and a bit of a pilgrimage for me. I was worried I was going to end up disappointed in gencon because of my cock up.
But no! I took general tickets to games on demand. They ran me a series of really fun games. They were super friendly and nice even to a total random stranger. I met people who wrote random indie games I buy. I chose someone’s favourite and got to play the oddest and one of the most memorable rp experience I have ever had (lindersfarm). Someone’s dresden file game made me buy both the rpg and the novels. All in all I had a blast, and it was at least 80% due to those guys.
Go check them out. They were great.
Also, if you get to choose what game the gm will run (there are usually 2 options) the choice “whichever you are more passionate about running” is a fine one. I only tried it once and got a truely memorable gaming experience.”
