GameCamp 6: here are your instructions
Hello! GameCamp is on Saturday and we’re looking forward to seeing you. Here’s a few notes in advance:
The doors of the Keyworth Centre will open at 9.30, with the first sessions kicking off at 10.00. We’re finishing up at 4.30, after which everyone will be adjourning to the Ship, at 68 Borough Road.
Getting to LSBU: this website does a better job of giving you directions than we could. The Keyworth Centre is building 13 on the map. Closest tube is Elephant and Castle.
Food and drink: we will be providing lunch and soft drinks, and there’ll be a lovely coffee van on site.
If you want to give a talk or run a session—and it can be on anything at all relating to games—you write the details on a card (provided) and stick it in an empty slot on the big board to show what time and room it’ll be in. Slots are usually 25 minutes: you can book a double or triple slot if you really need to but don’t get greedy. Here’s the science bit: now fill out a second card with the name of your talk and its timeslot, and put it on the door of the room you’ll be using.
If you want to run a digital demo or playtest, many of the rooms have big TVs or projectors. However you’ll need to bring a VGA cable and audio cable, or a component-video cable to connect your device to it.
A gong will sound for the end of each session.
Hashtag for the day is #gamecamp6. Be warned: phone reception and 3G in the building can be sucky.
Board-game library: we’ve got the usual stock, of course, but if you want to lend us anything for the day (and board-game prototypers we are particularly looking at you) then please bring it along. We’d be really grateful.
If you have friends who want to come but who missed out on tickets, it’s £20 on the door. Don’t tell everyone or there won’t be enough lunch to go round.
Things we know will be happening: George Buckenham will be showing off Tenya Wanya Teens, the extraordinary game developed in collaboration with Keita Takahashi of Katamari Demancy fame. Haberdashery will be along with a range of clever and bonkers physical games to awaken the kid in you. Playniac will be running Cat On Your Head. Haberdashery will be showing off a range of their delightful games. James Wallis will be playtesting Once Upon a Time in a Galaxy, the latest iteration of the best-selling Once Upon a Time card-games. And you—what are you bringing to delight us?
Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday.
