Hasbro playathon hackfest!!!

Hi crew, sorry for the lack of events this summer, it's been a busy game season! BUT we have been expressly invited to join in the Hasbro Hackathon in a few weeks! All gamification meetup folks have been offered free tickets, which I thought was pretty cool. The event itself sounds amazing- especially because it's about all sorts of play, not just video games so we can get really creative. 

We can carpool down and split a hotel room if folks want to spend the night- people can just drive back and forth since its only in Newport, so less than 2 hours. This looks like a really interesting place to meet a bunch of folks in the play industry as well, which is a little different from a lot of us who are used to interfacing with the video game startup world.

Anybody game??

    Okay I haven't gotten any more details from this guy, there's no phone number and the site is really confusing. That and it turns out I have to travel late Sunday so I'm going to back out. Sorry about that :(

    Hi everyone, sorry I've been MIA- I was in Japan this week. Sheesh, this DOES look involved doesn't it. Looks like we need to have a team ahead of time and we need to have a digital toy we want to build. I got nothin... I have a bunch of games on deck but nothing that would qualify as a digital toy. Let me email the guy and see what he has to say.

    Yeah, same here... I am thinking of joining, but I haven't really prepared an idea/logo/design, or team...

    Seconding Deidre! This looks amazing, but do we need to do anything beforehand or have specific experience?

    Is this only for established teams or will teams be formed as part of the event? (The suggestion on the website of creating logos and UI beforehand indicates that there will be pre-formed teams). Has anyone done this before?

    This sounds great! But I've got a plane to catch in Boston sunday evening - any idea when we'd be back?
