1.) I am unemployed as of late fall.
2.) I am already planning to travel around North America for 3-4 months, exploring. Probably starting in January.
3.) I really like story games, and like bringing them to cool new audiences.
Since I'm already going to be touring from city to city, spending a day or two in each, it'd be really cool to set up events with local community centers, libraries, game stores and literary festivals... to set up a table, pitch and demo games, give out "What Is a Story Game?" brochures, and sell a small inventory of stuff.
A roadshow that's designed to:
a.) expose gamers to new games
b.) expose non-gamers to gaming
c.) be a positive, friendly community venue for showcasing games
Could this be successful?
If so, what would make it successful?
Who should I be asking for support, and what should the support look like?
How can you help?
What should I do to convince you to help me?
Any other questions are welcome to be answered, too.
Jump in, talk about how this could be a cool thing.
If you think the initial idea is lame, that's not useful feedback yet.
Take five minutes to re-envision it, into something that's positively unlame, and then share that.
