if no one with a spare bed or couch speaks up, at the very least you could crash on my fabulous living room floor, mcellis.

Well cool, is there another post where I should be asking about this?

Also what is the upper limit of attendees for Hyphen Con? I was looking at the RSVP and at the moment it looks like there could be as many as 14 at the moment and there are only three games per slot of which several seemed to be only 4 person games. I'm now a little worried about not only finding crash space but finding an empty seat at games.

Huh. It's honestly never come up. Last year we had 18, IIRC, and nobody was left out. I think the only game which has a hard four-player limit this year is my own. IME, people usually make allowances for six players, though, so if we take two of those games plus my own smaller in game in one slot, that'd be a max of 19 participants.

Plus, if it turns out that crazy as it seems, we end up with more players than games, SOMEONE will have something they can run, or a board or card game that can be played. Trust me, no one is NOT gaming at this thing.

The other thing we've done in the past is have some reserve games, just in case we get more people than expected. The "runner up" games would be reserve games. I'd say the games with 5 votes are the runners up. However, several of those games are being run by GM's who already have a game on the schedule. My suggestion for the reserve games would be:

Serenity RPG: Tramps Like Us
The Monster's Revenge

Both those games' GMs don't currently have anything on the schedule. Chance are they won't need to run them, but they'd be there just in case we get an overload of attendees.

Thoughts?
