Yay! More volunteers! Hmm, we have more than 100 registered gamers but so far less than 10 volunteers? How to run convention?



Hmm, I'm still waiting for an answer from the organizers on the parking... If it's that expensive, then maybe we have to pool cars lor...



Btw, each post here = volunter for 1 slot... muahahahaha! Looks like someone has "voluntered" for the whole show man!

KLCC dun have standard fixed rate (like rm5) for exhibitor parking ar? Like that jialat la... Almost all convention center and event places (hotels) provide a fixed parking rate.



But in any case, LRT can get you easily into KLCC.

Dude, its a primarily a PC gaming convention. Boardgames is a side-attraction. The aim is to get the geeks to look the other way to the non-electronic side. You'll notice the selection of boardgames are either gateaway games,PC spin-offs or fantasy related games. TI3 might cut-it, but I think 18xx is way over the top.

And I'm sure you all know that Railroad Tycoon is considered the king of all tycoon PC games?



So can you confirm your shifts? Will give you space for TI3 & 18xx.

I was thinking, since the event also happen to slot in boardgames in its menu, we don't have to cater exclusively to the videogame crowd. sure we need to make sure the games are cross-over friendly like macedwin's initial proposal. In addition to the centrepiece of catan and carcassonne as boardgaming cross-over to the xbox, we can have also railroad tycoon, world of warcraft, warcraft boardgame, coming soon starcraft boardgame etc. as cross-over from videogames to boardgames.



ticket to ride can also make an appearance considering that you can subscribe to play it online.



Games with miniatures like descent, ti3 can make an appearance as a 'display item only' to hook in the videogamer crowd. (don't ever teach this game as it will take a long long time!)



gateway games with easy rules like ticket to ride, carcassonne should be the demo-heavy standbys.



last of all, ensure continuity by making sure the interested are aware of the various avenues to pursue this hobby: e.g. give contacts for retailers like imagine games, york house, comics corner; gaming spots like mages cafe, boardgamecafe, toybox, myscififancafe, etc.



This is an opportunity to get the word to a larger audience and make sure we get sponsors for a real Gamecon!!!

sorri, alreadi volunteered for macedwin's, unless he releases me.

and there will be eye candy displays - descent, wow, marvel. will add ti3 as suggested by friedriceman.



nick/castor willing to demo the brand new toi.



best i can think off for 18xx? show eye candy from railroad tycoon and demo 18xx?? up to you mr rice...



lots of eye candy in miniatures dept - savage worlds, at-43, confrontation, star wars.



and of course, there will be soccer!
