Volunteers Wanted - GenCon

Recommended Posts

Hello!

We are looking to identify a few good people to aid us in the best four days of gaming: GenCon. If you know our games and like to interact with customers/teach games, please consider giving some of your time to Wyrd as a volunteer. There's a lot going on the show, and you can help make it happen!

GenCon is taking place August 2-5 in Indianapolis, Indiana. If you'll be there and willing to help, check out the shifts we have available below (strikethrough means taken)!

If you are interested in any of these shifts (and you can take as many as you want!), please e-mail Kai at hobby.assistant@wyrd-games.net. Please include GenCon Volunteer as the subject line, your full name, which shifts you want, and your t-shirt size.

Below is a breakdown of what each shift entails. You must be comfortable with the game(s) you're signing up for. Rules can be provided to you in advance if required.

 

 

  • Customer Service - You will be responsible for answering a variety of questions about our games and products.
  • Malifaux Demos - Run a variable number of walk-up Malifaux demos. Walk-up demos shouldn't last more than 30 minutes, and 15 minutes or less is preferred. Your job is to foster an interest and basic understanding of the game. Full learn to plays are a different offering.
  • TOS Demos - Run a variable number of walk-up The Other Side demos. Walk-up demos shouldn't last more than 30 minutes, and 15 minutes or less is preferred. Your job is to foster an interest and basic understanding of the game. Full learn to plays are a different offering.

  • Learn to Play: MFX - Teach up to 2 people at a time how to play the game of Malifaux. Each set of 2 is ticketed and lasts for an hour, but players will be able to stay for a second hour and may have questions for you.
  • Learn to Play: TOS - Teach up to 2 people at a time how to play The Other Side. Each set of 2 is ticketed and lasts for an hour, but players will be able to stay for a second hour and may have questions for you.

  • Through the Breach Adventures - Run up to 5 people through a pregenerated adventure, which will be provided to you. Each adventure lasts 2 hours.
  • Breakdown - If a shift includes breakdown, it means hanging out after the show and helping us pack up! It is physically demanding, but good for a little bit of a workout!
