How To Run A Gaming Program

  1. 1. Running A Gaming Program By Erwin Magbanua
  2. 2. When, Where & Who? <ul><li>Monthly events are most common. </li></ul><ul><li>Allow time for setup and cleanup. </li></ul><ul><li>Gaming can be noisy – community rooms are ideal. </li></ul>
  3. 3. When, Where & Who? <ul><li>One staff member is likely enough. Volunteer help is always good. </li></ul><ul><li>If you have good volunteers, weekly gaming programs are doable. </li></ul><ul><li>Recruit volunteers at gaming events. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Advertising <ul><li>Don’t be too wordy. Teens want to know the basics: which games and when the event is taking place. </li></ul><ul><li>Try to make flyers look understated & cool. </li></ul><ul><li>Use gaming slang sparingly. (e.g. pwn, own, uber, ftw) </li></ul><ul><li>Post flyers at schools & local teen hangouts, if possible. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Open Play <ul><li>Basically, a free-for-all. </li></ul><ul><li>Participants take turns. </li></ul><ul><li>Very unstructured. </li></ul><ul><li>Participants must share. </li></ul><ul><li>No need for sign-ups. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Open Play <ul><li>Easiest format for you, but… </li></ul><ul><li>It will probably get boring for participants who really want… </li></ul>
  7. 7. Tournaments <ul><li>Provides structure to a gaming program. </li></ul><ul><li>Fun factor is very high. </li></ul><ul><li>Can be complex. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Tournament Tips <ul><li>I strongly suggest you sign up tournament participants at the program and not before. </li></ul><ul><li>Allow participants some practice time prior to the actual tournament. </li></ul><ul><li>Tournament structure and rules depend on the game. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Tournament Tips <ul><li>You’ll need to set up brackets. Google “tournament brackets” to find pre-made ones. </li></ul><ul><li>Single-elimination format is simplest (you lose, you’re out) </li></ul>
  10. 10. Tournament Tips <ul><li>Super Smash Brothers Brawl has a built-in tournament mode with pre-made bracketing system. Very convenient! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Gift cards make ideal prizes. (Best Buy and Gamestop are good) </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Tournament Tips <ul><li>You will need to set up: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Number of players per match </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Time limit of each match </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Special rules (power-ups, difficulty level, map/level restrictions) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Whether you want </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>one 1 st place prize </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>1 st and 2 nd place prizes </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>or 1 st , 2 nd and 3 rd place prizes </li></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Rules <ul><li>Too many rules = high maintenance. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep it simple. </li></ul><ul><li>Announce rules BEFORE they enter the event. </li></ul><ul><li>Post rules prominently. </li></ul><ul><li>Be consistent in enforcing rules. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Other tips <ul><li>Talk to the participants. Be curious. </li></ul><ul><li>DO NOT approach gaming programs with the intent to “convert” them to “real” library services. Teens can smell a bait-and-switch from a mile away. </li></ul><ul><li>Be a participant! </li></ul>
