SAT-02 The Lottery!

Post by Ben Robbins » June 19th, 2016, 11:55 pm

The Lottery is that rarest of Go Play institutions. We've done it for years but I don't think any other con does anything like it.

The idea is simple: instead of making an intelligent, careful, decision about what you play and who you play with, throw caution to the wind and let the fates decide for you.

Everybody gets together and throws their names into a basket. We randomly draw four at a time and those people go off and game. What they play is totally up to them. You may play with people you would never have gamed with otherwise. And you may try games you would never have tried, because you happen to be in a group with people who know that game. It’s all in the hands of fate.

Who's in? Take a chance, roll the dice, and maybe wind up with something unexpected…

Cheering with excitement here is a perfect start! There will be a big gathering of folks when the SAT-02 slot starts, so anybody who wants to wander up is welcome to join in (just like the pickup donut at the start of each slot).

In previous years there were about 30-40 volunteers for the Lottery. It is The Thing To Do.
