IGRC Con/PaulCon Talk
I crawled so far into my head about how I wanted to host my convention that I’d painted myself into a corner. I mentioned my difficulties to a non gaming friend over lunch and of course he offered the perfect, easy solution:
Just rent five hotel rooms.
Duh, right? This is how BBC does most of their private gaming. I have no idea why it didn’t occur to me.
So the space question, it appears, has been solved.
And now I think I’ve been using that question to not address the bigger meat of the thing, which is, what do I actually want to do with this event?
Obviously I can’t run everyone’s games but I can run one or two a day. I’d very much like to bring together good people so they can meet. I’d like to build in good break time to host non gaming stuff too: go to a fun restaurant or two, host a party at my house, whatever.
I mean…is this enough? Now I’ve got it in my head that I can’t get the critical mass together. But I won’t know until I commit to a date and space. Chicken and egg.
When you hear “Paul Con” or “Indie Game Reading Club Con,” what comes to mind? Let me know!
