So, Indie Hurricane!
the self-published gaming delegation for the greater Portland area's Gamestorm
convention, is coming to the Hilton Vancouver at the end of March. If you'd like to be a part of it, now's the time!
March 6 is the date to watch--it's the deadline for preregistration AND for events to be listed in the program book. If you'd like to be involved, here's what to do:
Want to come and play? Head over to Gamestorm.org
and register. Then go to the schedule page
login with OpenID. Look for games in the Indie Hurricane! track with the pink bar, and sign up to play! (if a game is full, you'll go on a waiting list.)
Want to come and run games? Do the above, and click "Submit a Proposal." Fill out the fields, click the pink Indie Hurricane! track, and request a time slot. The time blocks for scheduling Indie Hurricane! games are:
Morning games 10am - 1pm
(3hrs)Lunch/Panels 1pm - 2pm
Afternoon games 2pm - 6pm
(4hrs)Dinner/Panels 6pm - 7pm
Evening games 7pm - Midnight
If you have a game that's shorter than the block you want, that's fine. It can either start late or end early. Note that there is no Morning block on Thursday the 24th, and no Evening block on Sunday the 27th.
Want to come and sell your own games? The Indie Hurricane! table in the dealer hall is available for your use, free of charge! The dealer staff will be versed in your game provided you email me (storybythethroat AT gmail DOT com) so we can send you a questionnaire for your game(s) for our Booth Menu. If you'd like to work a shift or three at the booth yourself, that's wonderful as well!
Feel free to discuss what you're playing/running here, or drop by the Go Play PDX forums
to tell us you'r coming. Remember, the deadline for program buzz and pre-reg savings is March 6, in just one week! Come make the Hurricane a monsoon!*
