The Old Mall

 System: Dread
 GM: Stephanie Frey
            Saturday, Mar 11, 6pm-10pm  2017


https://warhorn.net/events/shushcon-2017/schedule/2017/03/11/sessions/166062

You and your friends have woken up in the old mall. It closed down a long time ago after some kids went missing. Which begs the question, how did you get here? And more importantly, how can you get out?

In Dread instead of rolling dice success is determined by pulling from the tower. But should the tower come tumbling down someone’s going to die.

THE SKIES ARE DIM ALWAYS SINCE THE MAKER DIED

System: Puppetland
GM: Jon Maness​
Saturday, Mar 11, 8am-1pm  2017

 
In one golden hour, you and your friends shall weave a tale none will soon forget: a tale of good-hearted puppets in a bad-hearted world. You shall rise up against the savagery of Punch the Maker-Killer with his army of Nutcrackers and his terrible Boys, sewn from the flesh of the Maker of all puppets. You shall be steadfast and true. You shall likely die trying.

Puppetland is a storytelling game. You play a valiant puppet who speaks aloud every word you say. You speak for your puppet and the Puppetmaster says the rest. You surprise each other at every turn, collaborating moment by inspired moment to unlock your own creativity and find the puppet within.

Your puppets are ready to take the stage. But speak softly, lest the Nutcrackers hear — and come to call with a sharp rap-rap-rapping at the door.

Escape Room Creation Workshop

posted Feb 10, 2017, 10:21 AM by Donald Dennis   [ updated Feb 10, 2017, 10:23 AM ]

Escape Rooms are all the rage these days, and professional facilities are popping up all over. The best professional escape experiences have rich stories, intricate set design, cunning use of technology, and innovative puzzles. These environment oriented activities are suitable for a wide variety of locations from schools and libraries to museums, and are appropriate both as entertainment activities and even as training or team building exercises. 

Join us for the ShushCon Escape Room Creation Workshop, the morning of Friday March 10th, hosted by the Georgetown County Library System in association with the Games in Schools and Libraries Podcast. At the workshop we will share the basics of escape room design how to build an engaging experience for your patrons without breaking the bank. When it is over you will have helped create your own escape activity and have a portfolio of resources that take the stress out of creating future event. 

Once the workshop is over stay for ShushCon - a full weekend of games and hands-on escape room activities including both table-top and room-scale escapes. 

Breakout EDU Kit will be awarded to one of our Escape Room Creation Workshop participants.  (A $125 value.) 

Register now for free!

This Escape Room Creation Workshop will be useful for activity coordinators of any stripe, including librarians, teachers, museum staff, out of school time caregivers, or even HR managers. Participants are encouraged to bring props, locks, or other items they'd like to include in their escape room creations. 


For more information about escape rooms contact DonaldDennis or Stephanie Frey at 843-545-3343. 

Their ESCAPE TO THE LIBRARY presentation was the foundation of the January 2017 SC State Library Teen Services Exchange about integrating escape rooms activities into the library programming. ESCAPE TO THE LIBRARY includes an overview about what escape rooms are and how venues like libraries, schools, or museums, could utilize escape rooms at their facilities as well as the challenges they might face when offering this unique form of patron engagement.
