Hi everyone! To the rest of the world, spring means grass growing, flowers blooming, and weather getting nicer. To those of us with gaming in our veins, it means something slightly different: The summer convention season is nearly here!!
Calliope Games will be attending a bevy — an entire bevy — of conventions this year, and in some cases we could use your help! Read on to see where we will be and how you might be able to join us!
Here is a list of the conventions where you can find us:
ETX in Tacoma, WA: May 27th-29th http://etxwa.com/
Origins Game Fair in Columbus, OH: June 15th-19th http://originsgamefair.com/
Texicon in Hurst, Texas: June 23rd-26th http://texicon.net/
Gen Con in Indianapolis, IN: August 4th-7th http://www.gencon.com/
PAX Prime in Seattle, WA: August 28th-31st http://prime.paxsite.com/
Rose City Comic Con in Portland, OR: September 10th-11th http://rosecitycomiccon.com/
Grand Con in Grand Rapids, MI: September 16th-18th http://www.grand-con.com/home
Now, we have a lot of fun at conventions, but we sometimes need help too! We are looking for outgoing, enthusiastic, game-driven folks to help at our booth. If you will be attending one of these shows and would like to volunteer some of your time to help demo games to others, please drop me a line at Chris@CalliopeGames.com! We compensate with games from our Calliope library, and depending on the amount of time you volunteer, sometimes even free badges!
Even if you can’t volunteer, we hope to see you at one or more conventions this year! Stop by and say hello, and join us for a game or two! Who knows what surprises we may have up our sleeves!
