On Monday, I was all excited to read everyone’s write-ups about last weekend’s WarTron Game in Portland. Today, I’m all excited because apparently a team has asked to re-cast WarTron in Boston next year! This is big news! I know I just said Boston is “so far away” in my last post, but for a Game, I would say anywhere that doesn’t require a plane ticket is practically in my backyard!
So far, no further details have been released about this potential re-run, but I’ll keep an ear out. Does anyone know the last time a Game was run on the East coast? (Or anywhere outside the West coast?) I’ve only been following this stuff for about a year, but I’ve only heard of West coast Games, so this is pretty exciting!
So now that a 2013 Game is becoming more of a reality for me, tell me, Game veterans, what advice do you have for assembling a team? I only know a few people who even know what the Game is. I have a handful of friends who have DASHed and BANGed and Post Hunted with me that might be interested and who I think could do a good job. Is an all-rookie team a recipe for disaster? Should I try and join up with a more experienced team? Should I start a puzzle training regimen?? Test-drive rental vans??? Aaahh!
