Hey story gamers.
Game Chef 2013 is going to take place from May 17th to May 26th.
That's two weekends and the week that sits between them.
A goal this year is to have Game Chef run simultaneously across several languages.
To that end, we need organizers to step up from various language communities and volunteer to help organize their Game Chef activities.
We've got volunteers from the Italian, English, and French design communities at the moment, though could possibly use more.
We have no volunteers from other language communities at the moment.
If you're interested in helping out by translating materials, promoting for your language, and organizing/administrating, I'd love your support. You can sign up by joining the Secret Game Chef Planning Cabal
on G+. Because we'll be discussing ingredients and structure, joining the G+ Community means that you're no longer eligible to win Game Chef this year.Are those dates final?
Yes!I'm attending a convention on the first weekend of Game Chef! This sucks!
There are two conventions that I know of taking place on that first weekend: Internoscon and Camp Nerdly. I'm going to coordinate with folks at both of those conventions to get sealed envelopes containing this year's Game Chef ingredients/etc to them, and encourage them to hold a Game Chef brainstorm/playstorm session at those conventions. It's my hope that writing time lost will be offset by an in-person energetic and design conversation. (For many folks, the first few days of Game Chef are all about radical thinking and simmering ideas, anyway.)Ugh, but I'm attending a convention on the final weekend of Game Chef! That's way worse!
Yeah, that is way worse. That's a bummer. You're effectively losing 2-3 days of Game Chef writing time.
This was bound to happen to some folks, and I'm sorry that it's happening to you.
Hopefully by shuffling the Game Chef dates around each year, we'll avoid doubling up on doing this to any specific folks.
