Last month I took over the job of organizing TAY Game Nights and I've noticed a steady decrease in turn out that started well before I took over. So as a community I'm asking you all to help me make TAY Game Night better. Help me restore it to its former glory.
What I Need From You
I need your help to make TAY Game Night a better experience. I don't need much, but there are a few things I absolutely need from TAY in order to keep Game Night going.
I've been noticing a trend in the voting process for selecting games for Game Night each month. Some game will get a ton of votes but then when it comes time to play it for game night no one shows up... So please, if you aren't going to show up to play a game then don't vote for it because maybe the people who voted for the game that just missed getting enough votes would have all shown up to that one. I know sometimes something comes up and you have to miss a Game Night you wanted to attend but try to keep this in mind.
Volunteers to Host Game Nights I Can't Host
It's not possible for me to host every Game Night. I only have Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC and even then I don't have all the games people want to play for those systems, especially PC. In order for PS3, PS4, and Wii U Game Nights to continue I need people to step up and host them. Lot's of games will get a ton of votes but not one person who votes for it says "Hey I can host this for you." Hosting is not that hard to do so if that's something that's worrying you and keeping you from volunteering then I can walk you through the process. All you need to do is make a post on TAY the day of the Game Night telling people your ID for the particular system and how they can join you. Then just be ready to invite people to your game at the scheduled time.
I need feedback from you guys in order to ensure you have the best TAY Game Night experience possible. If you don't like the schedule because the games you want to play are on days you can't make it I can see if I can juggle the schedule around in a way that works best for everyone. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for Game Night then let me know!
In return for all your help in regards to everything I mentioned above, I can give you guys the best possible TAY Game Night experience. I hope you take this into consideration and help me to help you have a wonderful time playing games with your fellow TAYers.
