UG XVIII: Volunteers needed to Teach Games
- Unity Games XVIII will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Woburn, MA
on Saturday Feb 4, 2012. Please see
I am once again coordinating the Teaching Area. This is an area
where dedicated gamers teach popular games to anyone wishing to learn them.
The goal is to have a specific place where new players
or those-who-are-not-as-comfortable-jumping-into-the-main-fray can meet and
ease into some relaxed gaming hosted by enthusiastic gamers.
I am looking for volunteers to staff this activity. Specifically, I need
people who can dedicate 2 hours and are comfortable at teaching games.
So, why should you become a teacher? Well, it provides a chance to meet
new gamers as well as an opportunity to share your passion for a favorite
game. The only requirements to becoming a teacher are that you know the
rules to your game of choice, that you are able to explain these rules to
new gamers, that you bring a copy of the game with you, and that you play
the game during your appointed time. Other than ensuring the game is
taught at the appointed time, these requirements are not unlike those
you'll be following anyway as you spend time at the event. There are no
discounts or other benefits that are conferred on teachers; all I can offer
is my genuine thanks.
My goal is to staff 2-hour blocks between the hours of 9:30am - 3:30pm.
Note the start time, which is set so as to allow time to check in and get
NOTE: If you do not want to teach, but have some suggestions of games that
you would like see taught, please contact me and I will try to accommodate
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+
I am looking for 9 - 12 volunteers. Please reply to me off-list if your are
interested in participating in this activity. Please provide:
1) Your gaming preferences.
2) Your preferred 2-hour timeslot.
Thank you, and I look forward to seeing everyone at UG XVIII !

recently, so if you'd like to do any of those, I can teach them. But as
you know I can teach almost whatever you want - send me a list.
