Conventions and Timeslots

posted May 20, 2013 21:49:31 by MichaelMesich
Some of us are running the convention circuit and I wanted to chat about length of timeslots.

The one I ran a couple months ago and the one I'm doing this weekend (as well as my pay-to-play events) are all running two-hour timeslots.

The reason being that it seems the average Incursion mission length is about 40 minutes and this allows the crew to swap positions twice and perhaps more importantly, allows them to train THEMSELVES a fair bit with the switchover.

I feel that the hour session ends just when they're pulling things together.

Now, only half as many people get to go through, but I think I'd rather they get a great experience while they're there.

Two hour slots still allow me to push through about 80-90 people over a Fri-Sun.

How many repeats do you see with one-hour slots?

Oh and ... "What are those green dots" and "What's the purple 999 thing?"

"I don't know. Why don't you go check it out?"

I've been getting some pretty hard pressure to go to GenCon this year from my gaming friends and am still mulling it over. But if you have any questions for me specifically, you can feel free to click on my user name and send a message to my Facebook account!
