DT-PINTS I have a goal of The Ocho! Eight games being offered. Means we will need 32-36 players. I plan on joining as many games as I can and just writing that weekend off as a gaming marathon...my record was 11 games in three days. I don't think I got that in me anymore
I'll try taking a day off, to do the same.
I will add that a lot of folks go for the standard real life convention 4 hour time slot.
However I have found much success in shorter time blocks. You can have pretty satisfying session in 2-3 hours. My Kobolds ate my baby games clocked in at 2 hours 30 minutes.
Obviously this heavily dependent on game system. Some games you may need 2 hours to get through a combat.
Planning shorter games makes it easier on you and those trying to sign up, especially if they are in another time zone.
I got HoiserRob in a game once because the shorter time slot was easier on his schedule and he had the added bonus of being able to tell the forum to STFU about him not participating. He was quite nice and did not say he hated anything.
Just sayin' not every game needs to be Epic, some can just be a good laugh.
