GI Jam Poster, events October 22nd, and the weekend of the 28th

This event is an opportunity to make games, explore new game ideas, and interact with fellow game-lovers in an exciting and relaxed environment. Learn something, teach something, make something, and play something!

The event is a community-based effort to increase the total knowledge, experience, and ideas available to community members. Do you know something about games that may interest others? Then volunteer! We want to know what you know!

FAQ:

Q: Do I have to be qualified to volunteer?

A: Not necessarily—we do need people just to help with setup/cleanup/registration/lunch. If you want to do a talk or tutorial, you should have some confidence that you know something that would be useful or interesting. If you say you can do a talk or tutorial I’ll most likely believe you—I’m not interested in stopping any enthusiastic volunteers.

Q: Do I have to stay the entire time?

A: No! We’re going to organize volunteers into shifts. You are, of course, free (and encouraged!) to participate even when not “on duty.”

Q: Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

A: The GI Jam organizers can be reached via the email: gicoop@uwaterloo.ca

Q: Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

A: You do not need to bring your printed ticket, but you should bring a piece of ID. Not only do we use it to double-check registrations, we trade you for your ID if/when you borrow our development equipment.
