I am sad to report that I had to make a last minute decision to not attend PAX East 2018 this year. I had intended to go as a panelist for the StreetPass Game Show, which has now been running for a couple of years! But I suffered an injury last month and don’t feel up for traveling the distance or getting bumped around on the crowded show floor. So I decided to sit it out this year.
ANYWAY… I’m really proud of how the game show has progressed since it’s inception at Eternal Con back in 2016. Let’s see how it has evolved!
The original StreetPass Game Show was 100% manual. My awesome friend Sean built a game board out of PVC pipe and we switched out the answers between rounds, just like on old school Family Feud in the 1970’s. We performed in front of a crowd of 30ish and the room was packed. Everyone left smiling!
Once the word got out about the StreetPass Game show, another awesome friend Miz Sylver helped us bring the game show to the modern age by converting the game board into a PowerPoint presentation which we could project onto a large screen. This made the game show something that we could take easily on the road. Scaling the game board onto a big projector screen made the game show that much more EPIC at PAX East, which had an actual theater for us to host the panel in. Check out the difference!
But what really makes me proud is that the game show can go on without me! We have the formula figured out and I know that the panelists doing the game show will do an amazing job this year, with Miz Sylver AND Sean both leading the way at PAX East 2018. I’m sad that I won’t be there, but hopefully another opportunity will arise for the StreetPass Game Show to be hosted at a future con that I can attend. (Maybe even NYCC? Don’t hold your breath but it would be cool to host a game show there!)
If you’re going to PAX East 2018 on Saturday night, don’t miss the StreetPass Game Show! Check it out and tell me all about it! I wish I was there….
