Bezerka Con2 Day 2
Did some demo drawing games as I thought I would try to over lap my drawing gamers with my other gamers. Might try again but have more watchable so ppl can join in on fly. Also talked about using exquisite corpse game to create characters.
Probably could do with more players but org was very good and possibly will do some one day events later. Still wondering if I will do any more con events myself as my taste a bit arthouse/oldschool/noncommercial but not indy or mainstream. Possibly I could do RQ2 or LTFP as I want more people to play them.
I guess besides enjoying carrying heavy objects and enjoying working behind scenes without much responsibility the con got me doing a few things I wouldn't normally do and saw some stuff and bought some minis (fire, a cargo container i can copy and a chimera) and met some people and saw some friends i hadn't seen for a while. So basically good. I have a big art exhibit in 3 weeks to prep for next.
Id be interested in hearing from anyone working cons or who bring kids or youths to kids or youth events as to how to market to those age groups. Was thinking of contacting police youth orgs, scouts, council youth workers or even convening a game day in holidays. Anyone with any thoughts or experience on this or kids I welcome to comment.
