Is there a place in the forum I can post questions or ideas to be mentioned at the meeting in my absence?


Sorry Thaine for muddling up this thread. I don't want to speak for Thaine who has taken on the role of forum liaison in that he would reply to a question like this, but I think we will create a thread for meetings. We are all kind of learning as we go so we will find a way that fits best for our guild. You can also feel free to reach out to Chris, Thaine or myself and we will answer questions too.

Guild Meeting Notes for October 2016




Tony - President

Thaine - Secretary

Angela Conner

Chris Henggeler

Joe Morris

Marcus Ross




We had a new member, Marcus, who is from Spielbound. Spielbound is hosting their National Play Day starting November 4th!


We're having a PlayDay with Childrens' Hospital and PretzCon on October 13th, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. This isn't a recruiting event, but you will get to play games with the children we are sponsoring. We encourage everyone to join, and it will be in the lobby (unless we hear otherwise.) There will be tons of board games and fun!


Update on our recruiting.  We are double what we were from last year at this point! Great job!


We also just wrapped up NukeCon. They want us to be more involved, so we should all think of things we can do. We talked about doing some games at the table, or possibly getting an Extra Life room where we have tons of games and involvement. What do you think would be awesome?


We also talked about improving the booth. Right now we are kind of bare bones, what could we do to be better, more interactive, and further engage people? We talked about having a game system of some sort, and then having an awesome Extra Life logo controller holder for the system. Maybe have a plug n play game system (new mini Nintendo or Mini Sega). Maybe someone could 3d print something awesome for the table? We want your suggestions!


Where do you want to meet in the future? Would you be okay with potluck? Restaurants? Reservations only? Let us know your preferred venue!


We were also talking about promoting stream day. Radio? Web? What can we do? What other ideas do we have?


Were now 30 days away from playday! We will post as many Guild activities as we can! So you will be featured! Please post all your shenanigans here:
