The Game Proposal Process

Here's what happens once you've filled out the proposal form:

  1. The Game Proposals Chair will be notified of your proposal. The Game Proposals Chair will read the information you've supplied. If there are any immediate questions, the Game Proposals Chair will contact you, to work with you to clarify your proposal.
     
  2. The Game Proposals Chair notifies the Proposal Committee of the new proposal. The Proposal Committee consists of several con volunteers, with a wide variety of LARP experience, at Intercon and elsewhere. The Proposal Committee is deliberately large and varied, in order to represent the diversity of people who come to the con. Several people will look at your proposal.
     
  3. The Proposal Committee discusses each proposal. They'll be looking at the proposal for answers to questions such as:
     
    • Does the game look interesting?
    • Does it look like a game that people will enjoy?
    • Is this a game that will appeal to the typical Intercon audience?
    • Is it a game that's different from games already accepted for the convention?
    • Is this a game that helps to create a rich and varied mix of games at the con?
    • Do the game space and time requirements fit within the Intercon budget for space and time?
    • Will the game bring new people into the con?

    This may result in further questions back to you. It is why it's so important that you fill in the proposal form completely to begin with.
     

  4. Once consensus has been reached, the Game Proposals Chair will notify the Con Chair. The Con Chair is the final arbiter of game acceptance. When the Con Chair has made a decision, the Game Proposals Chair will let you know what has been decided.
     
  5. If the proposal is accepted, it will be added to the schedule. Announcements about the con will contain advertisements about all the open games in the schedule, including yours! We also encourage you to advertise your game (and Intercon) in your LARP group.

    If the proposal is rejected, we'll try to explain why it doesn't meet our needs. We get a lot of game proposals, and some just don't fit. If your proposal is rejected, we hope you'll still come to the convention, to have a great time in all of the other LARPs.
