Everyone puts out schedules of where they’ll be during conventions. I guess I could do the same. So here goes.
Friday August 19
11:30 - 12:30 - Hedgehog Theater - Building Inclusive Communities in Analog Gaming Spaces* - Our panelists will give you tips on creating game groups, finding public game meetups, and enjoying gaming conventions as a newbie. Want to be a better organizer? We’ll work with you on how to bring inclusive content to your current groups, how to find new players, and how to encourage their participation. We will also cover how to identify and handle those problem players and community members.
*I’m not in this panel, Tifa is. I will be there to support her.
1:30pm - 6:00pm: Microsoft - Killer Instinct - Come battle me! Let’s talk about all the cool new stuff. Then we’ll hug it out.
7:30pm - 8:30pm - Wombat Theater - Creating Diversity Playgroups - A discussion about the trials and accomplishments of founding and organizing Diversity Playgroups. Including host Tifa Robles of The Lady Planeswalkers Society - a highly successful, worldwide group for women to learn and play Magic: The Gathering.
9:00pm - ??? - PAX Karaoke - Let’s get nerdy and singy! Details: https://www.facebook.com/events/1418952251677147/
Saturday August 30
I have that day off. I’ll be helping Tifa, wandering the show floor, and just hanging out. I hope to see you.
6:00pm - 7:00pm - Hedgehog Theater - Building for Synergy - Symbiosis of Hearthstone and Magic: While Hearthstone may be new to the scene that was originally established by Magic: the Gathering, both games have a lot to learn from each other, as well as a lot to offer for the long-term success of both. The easy access of Hearthstone is perfect for lounging at home, and the interactions you have with other players during a game of paper Magic brings players to their local hobby shop by the drove. How will the existence of the two at-odds games impact the community of card game players?
7:00pm - 8:00pm - Wombat Theater* - The “F” Word - The Big F: Feminism. Lady developers, community managers, and journalists discuss the role of women in the video games industry including the triumphs and trials they’ve faced, and what we can all do to make the community a better place.
*I will be hauling ass from my panel to get to this one. Tifa is on it and it looks AMAZING.
8:00pm - ??? - MTG Party! Tifa and will be there. We hope you will be too! PREVIEW CARDS!!
Sunday August 31
10:00am - 2:00pm - Microsoft Booth - Killer Instinct - LET’S KEEP FIGHTING!
3:00pm - 6:00pm - Lady Planeswalker’s Society Booth - Come join me on the 6th Floor and let me teach you how to play Magic: The Gathering.
9:00pm - 10:30pm - Sandworm Theater - Late Night Dub Fight - Relive moments from your favorite cartoons, video games, movies, TV shows, and anime, in a new and hilarious light. The Late Night Dub Fight pits panelists against each other to find out who can “improve” classic clips by redubbing them live with their imposing improv skills. No one knows what show host Ian Horner has up his sleeves, or what the cast members will say in this all-out assault on your funny bone.
Monday September 1
Wandering in the morning.
2:00pm - 6:00pm - Microsoft Booth - Killer Instinct - Let’s fight! Again.
