i've always wanted to do one of these and bgg probably has the space to do it with things like the 11th floor.

I'd love to play wouldn't even mind helping run it. I tried to get some people in houston interested in it i just couldn't so i never sat down and learned it.

the hard part is you'd have to organize the event remotely having never played it or your gms. Which after taking a look at the pdfs felt I'd have to do a couple demo games just so i could get the flow before it could go off with out major hitches.

It'd be amazing if a group got together and learned it outside bgg so they could run it at bgg as i feel that would be the only way something like this could get off the ground.

If there isn't an event like this scheduled, I think that's a mistake on our parts. Even if it was "after hours" on the ground floor or Somthing crazy like the upstairs confrence rooms.

Post in here if you are intrested in helping to run/play somthing like this.

Having played one of these (Watch the Skies in San Pedro, CA) it is a big undertaking for those organizing and those playing. While I would totally be down to try another one(at the con or otherwise) I think it's too much to ask someone to do during another event like this. I think they are best dedicated to their own event.

I'm not aware of what a megagame is. Is it similar to an ARG? Is it a type of metagame or an active game? My google-fu didn't reveal awesomeness.

You and me both. I suspect a large majority of people reading this have no idea what the OP is talking about. Maybe if the OP included some sort of description defining what "MegaGame" is for those of us that are not aware, it might drum up more interest. Like a previous poster I assumed it was in regards to MegaCiv or some other game that supported a larger than normal number of players.

It's like a 40 person rpg/boardgame thing.

Watch the skies basically has people playing countries, and news casters, and scientists, and tons of other rolls as aliens invade and you all have to work together to deal with it ala xcom.

So think of it like a 40 player xcom with another 5-10 people playing as the gm.

here is the shut up and sit down thread the OP originally referred to before he deleted his topic post.

I'd totally be interested in helping run one. I've never done it, but it looks so cool.

Thanks for the information. Looks like fun. How long does a MegaGame typically last?
