As you know, most of the stuff we do at the club (although certainly not all) is about games of various kinds: role playing, board games, table-top miniatures, card & dice games, computer games and so on.
As much as I wish I could play all the games myself, alas I'm only one man, and even I have to pick and choose my favourites. And being behind the counter most of the time means I don't get to play as often as I'd like.
But as a geeking venue, DeeTwenty shouldn't be limited by the games I'm into. We aim to provide a space where any and all geeky games can be played, taught, workshopped and competed in.
With that in mind, we're pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative: the DeeTwenty Game Promoter Program!
This program will work to assemble a team of volunteers who loves games so much they want to help promote, teach and grow the games they love. Here's what we're thinking of, to start with:
You, as a fan of a particular game, sign up with us to become an official DeeTwenty Game Promoter. We'll then work with you to schedule and market specific times when you'll be at the club promoting the game.
What does that look like?
Well, you'll have a space set aside for you (a table or two) where you'll have all your stuff set up. You'll need to bring everything you need to show other geeks the game you're promoting: cards, figures, character sheets, laptops... the lot.
You'll spend the allotted time at or near your designated area where geeks who are interested in your game can try it out. It's also a great opportunity to help players who are new to the game get up to speed, or just to have a few casual games for fun.
What do you get out of it? Aside from the opportunity to share the love and grow the games you enjoy, you'll also get a free Day Pass voucher for every promo event. You can use it yourself or give it to a friend. If the program is a success, we'll look into adding more cool benefits for official Promoters down the line.
If all goes well and your game manages to develop a following at the club, we'll be able to look into expanding our support for your players: carrying stock in the Armoury, prize support for tournaments and that sort of thing.
At DeeTwenty we want to do everything we can to help grow and strengthen the various geeky hobbies and interests, but we can't do it alone. We need the support of dedicated volunteers, as well as players themselves, to make it all happen.
If that sounds like a cool idea to you, consider joining the program. We're looking for Promoters for pretty much any geeky game at this point, but in particular we're interested in the following:
- Marvel Dice Masters
- Settlers of Catan
- Magic: The Gathering
- Ticket to Ride
- Star Trek: Attack Wing
- Dungeons and Dragons (all formats, including miniatures)
- Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures
- Warhammer (Fantasy and 40k)
- DOTA 2
- Star Trek CCG (1st and 2nd Edition)
If you're keen to promote more than one game, that's cool. We're also open to having more than one Promoter on-board for any given game; In case the first one can't make it on the day, it's good to have someone on stand-by to take over.
So if that interests you, head over to the DeeTwenty Promoter Sign-Up Sheet, fill in the details, and we'll get in touch with the next steps.
See you around the club!
