Slowly Dawning Realization

Okay, so I’m paging through the Dreamation stuff. I had assumed it was a million billion years too late to submit things, but I thought what the heck and started looking through. 

I thought there were like…900-some events? Starting out…seems there aren’t nearly that many. In fact in any given slot there might be 5 or 6. Or fewer. Now I’m confused. Are there parallel conventions? No idea. Also heavily freeform/larpy. Now I feel like the weird kid who brought D&D to the makeout party. Oh wait. Wait. They’ve arranged it by…game type? Clustered into larps and Pathfinder and not-Pathfinder games? Spectacular. No wait, the other word. What is N? G? R? S? B? IS THERE A KEY NO I GUESS NOT.

900-some events in a single column of 6 point type. Wow. Wow.

Every con runs different but man this one is by far the weirdest and most baffling. 

Submitted my wish list, let’s see what happens.

  1. All the DoubleEx Cons are a combination of:

    1) Awesome Hardworking staff
    2) Awesome Attendees
    3) Awesome Games
    4) Bizarrely outdated technology

    I’m reasonably certain Vinnie creates the schedule on a mainframe using punch cards while communicating with the staff via semaphore.

  2. There are a lot of pick up games going on too. If you can’t get into something and find yourself walking around you could probably find something else that interests you 🙂

  3. Oh the key is L=LARP, R=Roleplaying, B=Boardgame, D=Dicegame, C=Cardgame and V=Videogame. There were some other odd ball categories but that’s what I remember off the top of my head.

  4. Bob Bersch The maddening thing about the Letter categories is events aren’t listed alphabetically, they’re listed serially by event number. Even though the letter is the first part of the event designation.

  5. I know..The printed program is almost as bad. the print is so tiny its crazy. Ah well. most of the stuff I asked for is fulled up already. But there are also usually lots of cancellations so see what happens. See ya there 🙂
