Description

Saturday October 5th: 9AM – 2PM

NOTE: This ticket DOES NOT includes General Admission to the con, you MUST have a ticket to SHUX in order to attend one of the Megagames because they are in our event space.

Negotiate, backstab, and bribe your legislation through the US congressional gauntlet as a member of Congress, media reporter, or a friendly neighborhood lobbyist in this 20-53 player megagame!

These Great United States are in chaos!  Avian flu and wildfires! Tax loopholes and flood insurance! Chinese clones and Russian hackers!  Join 50 of your fellow Americans to show just what Congress can do in the face of a crisis! Politically maneuver policies through the congressional machine as a member of congress, media reporter, or a friendly neighborhood lobbyist.  Be careful though – everyone wants to do the right thing, but the right thing may not get you reelected in this Megagame of negotiation, tact, and weaponized bureaucracy!

You’d love Sworn to Serve if:

  • You are a fan of John Oliver, the Daily Show, Samantha Bee, Vice, 60 Minutes, or the Weeds Podcast by Vox.
  • You think John Oliver, the Daily Show, Samantha Bee, Vice, 60 Minutes, or the Weeds Podcast by Vox are full of it.
  • You like Megagames with fairly concrete tonal limits to gameplay (no nuking the moon!).
  • You find backroom deals to be the most fun parts of games like Diplomacy and Watch the Skies!

MEGAGAMES FAQ

Q: What’s a Megagame like?
A: Check out Shut Up & Sit Down’s very own video!

 

Q: Can I be on a team with my friends?
A: Of course! We prioritize keeping friends together, above all else. We’ll be reaching out via email to all players to help assign teams and roles; check your inbox and let us know who you’d like to play with!

 

Q: Do I need a full team in order to sign up?
A: Not at all – we take groups of all sizes, including solo players. We’ll make sure everyone is matched up with a team, and put you in touch with your teammates a week before the game starts!

 

Q: What do I need to bring?
A: You don’t need to bring anything, but many players enjoy dressing for their role. We may even give out bonuses to teams that are particularly well-coordinated. (Shhhh, don’t tell anyone I told you!)

 

Q: Do I have to be there the whole time?
A: Yes. The epic scale of a Megagame is part of what makes it such a unique and memorable experience.
