Are you coming to PAX East? Do you like fun? come play some tabletop games!
Games on Demand is coming to PAX East this year (April 6-8), and we’d like you to join us. The event will be happening in the tabletop gaming area near the exhibitor booths, and we’ll be running games from 10am to 10pm or later on Friday and Saturday, and 10am to 6pm on Sunday.
We’ll have a great selection of indie and small press games running in 2 to 4 hour blocks, with GMs offering up a selection of their favorites for you to choose from. And if you’re interested in running games yourself, we’re always looking for more GMs. All you need to do is contact us and let us know when you’ll be available.
In addition, we have a limited number of special badges for GMs who commit to running games on the schedule. If you don’t already have a badge and would like one, let us know as soon as possible and we’ll get you set up!
Do you need GMs to volunteer ahead of time?
It’s always helpful to know when GMs are going to be there so we can make sure the tables are covered. If you want to commit to some 2-hour slots, that would be great! Just drop us a line and we’ll add your name to our schedule.
I should be clear that we prefer it if GMs come prepared with a couple of game options in hand. It just makes it easier to meet the demand for a game everyone wants to play.
How much notice do you need for people playing?
Players don’t need to give notice- just drop by (ideally around even-numbered hours, starting at 10am) and ask the host what games are starting. We’ll pitch the games and do our best to find you an open spot in a game that sounds good to you.
And how will people find you in the tabletop area?
The Games on Demand tables should be located
next to the Compleat Strategist booth in areas D1 and D2, just past the WOTC block and behind the Tabletop HQ booth and lending library. We’re very close to the Pandemonium Books and Games booth as well, who will be carrying many of the games. We’ll try to have signs up as well, but if you can’t find us, ask the Tabletop information booth or HQ for directions. In a pinch, you should be able to get updates on Twitter from @games_on_demand
