Event details


Gamescape is part of the larger Artscape Festival in Baltimore, MD.  Gamescape is a showcase of video games and the creative people behind them.  Learn more here: http://www.artscape.org/visual-arts/visual-arts-detail/54

 

We will be staffing a table/booth at Gamescape in hopes of recruiting new Extra Lifers to participate in this year's Game Day.  Details of booth setup will be ironed out at this week's guild meeting.  We are in need of volunteer coverage for the following windows:

 

 

Please let us know when you can volunteer.  I will update the event with confirmed volunteer names below the shifts they have agreed to work. We need one volunteer minimum per shift, however extra coverage would be appreciated!  For additional details, please message @Sarah, @NodnarbDude or @Ceraph1216.  You can also visit the related forum post here:  Gamescape Schedule

Hey guys,

 

Something just came up and unfortunately it doesn't look like I'll be able to be there on Friday after all. Sorry for dropping out like this, I really wish everything weren't happening at once that weekend.

Sorry for the confusion, I posted under a different login. So I got counted twice. I am @indifference so only one of me will be there from 10:30 to 5 on Saturday.

I'm sorry for making things more confusing. Can I delete the guest posts? I'll be sure to sign in correctly going forward. What is the tablesetup going to be like for Gamescape?

Aaron,

 

Got you fixed up in the schedule there.  The table set-up is going to include a spin-for-prize wheel (we'll have some little giveaways and some candy).  If you can bring a tablet or laptop you're comfortable with allowing people to sign up on, that would be great.  We'd like to have guild supplies in the future, but in the meantime a tablet is best, but a computer will work.  We may have Smash set up on a TV on Saturday and Sunday to encourage people to visit the booth but I need to clear bringing the supplies for that with my husband. lol

 

From what @Ceraph1216 was telling us, the Gamescape area sometimes is treated as a "let my kids loose so I can go get turned up" area.  This is the only concern we have with the technology (and candy) we are bringing.  We will likely put a "15 minute limit" or something on Smash, and we should pay attention to any unattended children who come up to the table and maybe require that they have a parent present to spin.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Team,

 

Due to time constraints this week I will not be able to get handouts ready and printed in time.  I have, however, secured several Kindle Fire tablets which will be officially Guild property so that people don't have to bring their own devices to events going forward.  I will either hand these off to @NodnarbDude before Friday, or I may just bring them with me on Saturday.  If you are volunteering on Friday, please check in on this page to see if that hand-off has occurred or not.  See you there!

Thanks. I can't bring a display but I may be able to bring some games, controllers or a small system like PSTV if need be.

Wow these forums have been killing me ? I apologize for the late response, Tapatalk has been really buggy for me, I can do 4-11 on Friday and Saturday. So now we got someone in the evening. And if you want two people at the table any other time I can do another shift if needed. Thanks for all this organization Sarah! (Idk how to tag people in these comments, I hope you get this! ?

Team,

 

I will be bringing the following with me tomorrow:

 

1) The wheel of awesome & dry erase marker to write on the wheel

2) 2 Kindle Fire tablets, which due to their excessive Android lockdown will basically just be mobile browsers for us

3) Candy and something to keep candy in

4) Small TV

5) Wii

6) Brawl (I know the Melee elitists will be mad but it is what it is...)

 

See you guys at noon!  If you have any tips or tricks on how to get to the booth, any suggestions for how we run similar future events, or any updates on what to expect at Gamescape, please post them here!  Thanks again to everyone who is volunteering this weekend.  We absolutely could not cover this event without your help.  Thank you so much!
