It’s been a while since I had to manage a booth at Gen Con . . . in point of fact, I’ve NEVER had to do so by myself before. So you can probably guess that there are all sorts of things that I’m scrambling to get done before the “4 Best Days in Gaming” kick off next Thursday. But of all the things I haven’t done, there’s one that rises above the crowd—I haven’t yet arranged for any minions!
MINIONS! They are the life’s blood of ANY convention booth!
Minions—also known as Volunteers, Booth Monkeys, Sales Staff, Booth Babes (or Beefcake), or Slave Labor!
Minions—someone to work at the table while the proprietor (in this case, ME) attends to other concerns. In this case, I have seminars that I have to attend . . . and I’d like to get a chance to wander the convention floor, myself . . . and I might have to use the Little Game Designer’s Room from time to time. MINIONS make all those things possible.
I can’t offer any payment other than a hearty handshake, my sincere gratitude, and maybe a free book or two. I don’t promise anything other than boredom bordering on tedium, and the chance to say “Stan! will be back at 4:00″ to anyone who even approaches you. But even so . . . I’ve got to ask:
Do YOU have what it takes to be Stan!’s minion?
If you think the answer is “yes,” and you’re willing to spare an hour or two of you Gen Con weekend for what meager rewards I’ve listed above, please drop me a line in the comments below, or via email, or even through direct messages on Facebook or Twitter and we can talk about the details.
