Don’t leave me hanging: You and I both know that we’re both so conditioned by video game quests that sometimes you hear a “Ding!” when you finish folding laundry and get the feeling that you just leveled up… Right?
Anyway, here are the quests that helped me survive Dragon*Con 2012. These quests are applicable at any large event – give them a try!
Quests to complete:
Power Grab: Find an unoccupied outlet to recharge your digital devices.
Bar Fly: Score a seat at the Mariott bar after 6PM. (Good luck. You’re gonna need it.)
Reanimation: Make it through the line at Starbucks and acquire the correct beverage at the other end.
Defying Gravity: Make it more than 3 floors without stopping in a hotel elevator.
Tranquilizer Dart: Act cool when faced with a celebrity you normally freak out over.
So that’s my list; did I miss anything critical to survival at a multi-day, massive event full of passionate fans?
