Hi Scot.

Well I'm not sure, ---- everything's stil in the possibly crazy idea stage at the moment, and I haven't even spoken to Cx2, ---- or richard or Sander, sinse I'd like to know the facts from the organizers themselves first.


Once I know what's going on, having an extra person on hand may be helpful, ---- but again, we'll have to see.

If the charge is based on leaflet space, ---- again, I'm not sure how that will work, sinse while on the one hand we want to advertise, on the other, it's not quite as important that we give people huge amounts of promotional info to take away (just a note on www.audiogames.net and the existance of games would do), it's really just the general visibility factor which I think would be most helpful.

Again though, I'll wait to see what the site village organizers have to say.

I've never personally seen agrip there, ---- but then again I've only known about audiogames from 2006 onwards, --- so it's possible they were there earlier on and I missed them.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

Hey Dark,

Didn't Agrip do a trip to Sight Village once?  I didn't go that year,
just vaguely remember them being at some exhibition somewhere and it
seemed to ring a bell.

Anyway main reason for the post was just to add a bit of support to
the idea.  As far as I know the cost varies depending on how much
advertising you want in the promo bumph, though I've no idea what the
base rate or conditions that allow someone to exhibit are.

Keep us updated though, I'd certainly drop by the stall for a bit of a
game-off, it'd make a nice change from doing the rounds and hanging my
head at some of the pricing and lack of inovation that's generally on
offer.

I should imagine between you and CX2 you'll have this covered if it
comes to anything, but in case you need a London contingent with
plenty of experience of presenting things in a "this is easy and fun"
way then feel free to give me a shout... I'd be only too happy to help
if I can.

Scott

That sounds like a good idea.
I hope it is affordable to do, otherwise I am sure some of us would not mind
giving a few bucks to do that.
Just some thoughts,

Hello Tom.

This is unfortunately true. For the last few years I've gone to sight
village each summer. This is basically the uk Vi tech show, where
companies, charities and organizations wrent stalls and show off their
stuff, while lots of people turn up and look.

Not once though have I seen any accessible games mentioned there at all.

I believe Azabat had a stall one year, ---- but they certainly don't go
frequently, ---- nor is azabat any kind of a good representation of what
audio games are like in general.

this does give me an idea though. Maybe I should see if I could go to site

village as a representative of the gameaccessibility special interest
group and audiogames.net, ---- to do a general show off of accessible
games.

I wouldn't really need any more than my laptop (which has lots of games on

it anyway), a plug, and possibly a net connection if i wanted to show off
something online like sound rts or Che martin's games, ---- and using a
double sterrio jack I could wear one pear of headphones, participants
another, and thus I could give instructions.

The show is not until next July, --- -but I'm not sure how late you have
to book your places, or what you have to pay to the organizers to get a
stall.

Maybe though I'll research this and suggest the idea to Richard and
Sander.

While it might not be ideal, ---- it'd certainly be a good way of reaching

a lot of Vi people who may or may not have access to the net, ---- and
sinse I would be representing audiogames.net, ---- I could show several
different types of game depending upon what peoples interest was.

hmmm, I'll look in to that one and see where it goes.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
