The IF Suite

I (zarf) have reserved a large suite on the top floor of the Back Bay Hilton. (Room number TBA.) We have the room from Thursday afternoon until Monday morning, although I currently plan to clear out on Sunday evening.

This shall be called the "[People's Republic of Interactive Fiction] Hospitality Suite".

The plan is to have the door open through Friday, Saturday, and some of Sunday. It will be both a rendezous/hangout point for mudders and IF community folks, and a publicity center for newcomers interested in IF.

Ideas:

  • Chips, soda, M&Ms in mass quantities
  • A SpeedIF at some point in the weekend
  • Maybe some scheduled discussions beyond the official PAX panel
  • Fliers: we should have a stack of fliers describing the suite and all PAX IF events, official and unofficial. Leave on free-flier tables in the convention center.
  • Badge ribbons for all of us ("Grue lover"? "Ask me about Interactive Fiction"? "Lost in a maze of twisty little passages"?)
  • Badge stickers for anyone who drops by the suite (may be same as ribbons)
