We’ve been trying really hard to get more diversity to our lovely Games on Demand event at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio. This year, Jay Treat has organized a fund raiser to help us do exactly that. As we all know, cost is one of the biggest barriers for women, people of color, and lgbtq folx to attend conventions. Help us bring them to Origins 2016 so they can run games, network with industry professionals, and have a blast at Games on Demand.
Are you coming to ORIGINS? I don’t know WHY YOU WOULDN’T ITS THE BEST CON. IT’S BASICALLY IN MY BACKYARD.
COME RUN GAMES AND EAT FOODS AND ICE CREAMS AND LAUGH AND DRINK BEERS WITH US!
Never ran a game at a con before? We can give you some advice! You can also volunteer in different ways to help out! We aim to be an inclusive, diverse space, and are always trying new things to MAKE IT SO.
If you are interested in running games for us at Origins 2016 Games on Demand, please fill out the survey below before February 24th:
Hey everyone! Who here is interested in seeing Games on Demand at PAX South? Andi Carrison would like to help us make that happen!
“I manage the Tabletop department for PAX South, and I’m looking to find the right folk to lead and coordinate a Games on Demand presence there. Last year (its inaugural year), there was no GoD at PAX South. I want to remedy that going forward, as it’s important to me that GoD has a presence at PAX. In short, I’d like to invite GoD to PAX South.
PAX South is January 29th-31st in San Antonio, TX at the Henry B
Gonzalez Convention Center. I’d love to talk about what this could look like.”
So who’s interested in stepping up to make this happen?
The Indie+ team organized a Google Hangout panel discussion about Games on Demand. It aired live on Sep 19, 2015 and featured Rich Rogers moderating a conversation with Kristin Firth, Evan Torner, Renee Knipe, Ross Cowman, Natalie Holt, and Steve Segedy.
“At big cons like GenCon, Origins and PAX, as well as little gaming conventions, brave souls organize and sign up to run games on demand. Why do they do this thing? How do they pull it off?”
Games on Demand will once again be running a slate of excellent games at PAX Prime this year. The show runs from August 28th-31st in Seattle, WA. The event will take place in room 305 on the third floor of the convention center again this year and we’ll be co-located with Gamma Ray Games to make it easy to grab a copy of the games you’ve played.
New games will begin each day at the following times:
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!
