UG7: Volunteers needed to teach games
- Happy New Year!
As most of you know, UG7 will be held on Feb.7 at the Four Points Sheraton hotel in Waltham, MA, which is only FIVE WEEKS AWAY-- please see http://www.unitygames.org/ug7/ug7.htm for more information. One of the activities instituted at the last UG event was a jumpstart teaching area where dedicated gamers taught some popular games to anyone wishing to learn them. The goal was to have a specific place where new players or those-who-are-not-as-comfortable-jumping-into-the-main-fray could meet and ease into some relaxed gaming hosted by enthusiastic gamers. This activity was held in the morning at UG6, and was well received.
I am coordinating the jumpstart teaching area for UG7, and am looking for volunteers to staff the activity. Specifically, I need people who can dedicate about 3 hours and who are comfortable at teaching games. There is no set list of games to be taught; you may indicate a choice of games, which should be playable in under 90 minutes and accommodate 3+ players. As a reference, the games that were taught at UG6 included: Acquire, Carcassonne Hunters & Gatherers, Expedition, Ra, Settlers of Catan, and Showmanager. Other game possibilities include (but are not limited to): Attika, Citadels, Modern Art, New England, and Santiago. I am looking for 6 - 9 volunteers; with more volunteers we can stagger the hours so that there is some coverage in the afternoon. Please reply to me off-list if you are interested in participating in this activity.
Thank you, and I look forward to seeing everyone real soon!
