Fantasy Games: From Football to Congress
April 2, 6:30pm
Fantasy gaming is a $2 billion dollar industry that has greatly affected the way sports games are covered. Not only have they brought statistical analysis to users, but they have also greatly increased engagement. This model has now been employed across many non-sports categories including entertainment, politics, and news.
Join Andrew Lee, Co-founder, Publi.us, and creator of Fantasy Congress, as he discusses the world of fantasy gaming, new startups in fantasy, and trends within the industry. As a group we will dig deep and explore also what it takes to produce a fantasy games, some Dos and Don'ts, when best to use this genre as opposed to other genres, and other related questions.
We look forward to seeing you!

Offices are located in Georgetown just off K/Water street (underneath the Whitehurst Freeway), west of Wisconsin Ave. By 6:00 or so there should be ample street metered parking (free after 6:30 I believe). Be careful to follow parking signs exactly, cars have to be BACKED into spaces. Pull in frontways, and you're guaranteed to get a ticked. Don't pay the meter when you have to, guaranteed to get a ticket. Garage parking is available, but only until 8:00 p.m. when the garage closes for the night.
Nearest metro stops are Foggy Bottom (about a 15 minute walk), or Rosslyn (about a 10 minute walk across the key bridge). If the weather is nice, and you're taking metro, use Rosslyn, the walk into the heart of Georgetown if very pretty.
