Announcing the EPIC 2015 Schedule
The first draft of the schedule is here: https://epic2015.sched.org/
Events start with dinner Wed and run 11am to 1am, Thu-Sat. If I missed your event or screwed it up, this is the time to correct me.
- Wednesday is new boardgames & MTG. I'm taking nominations for the Wed night LAN game.
- Thursday is high ropes course, Minecraft x2, homecooked pho, beer tasting, and the second annual Decathalon.
- Friday brings archery, a tea party, boardgames, wine tasting, BIKE & BREW (details below), and Smash Bros.
- Saturday finishes with Duct Tape Challenge, TF2, Human Chess (mini games), homebrew, & Mario Kart.
Also, we lied about Food Tour; it's on like Donkey Kong.
Decathalon is a team-based LAN gaming event that tests the teams' wits in 4-5 PC games.
Human Chess is an elaborate excuse to play hilarious party games in the alleyway.
Duct Tape Challenge is a team-based duct tape engineering challenge that changes every year.
Bike & Brew Tour is a biking tour of Atwater Brewing, Brew Detroit, Batch Brewing, Traffic Jam, Motorcity Brewing, and Jolly Pumpkin / North Peak. Anyone not biking can still join us at Batch Brewing which will double as our food tour stop that evening. The event after this being named "Smashed Bros." was not a schedule typo. Because of the stops for pints, the biking portion will be a bit shorter. Also, the last 3 breweries are all in a cluster & at the end of the tour from which it is a very easy walk back to the house. Rentals will be available and inexpensive.
Signups will commence immediately following ticket sales ending.

WTB babysitter, Friday 4pm - bedtime (720ish), PST.
LAN gaming Wednesday night subject to setup being completed
Draft 2 of the schedule is now up. https://epic2015.sched.org/
Removed Tea Time, moved Wine Tasting to Saturday night, moved the LAN game to Friday & Kart to Wednesday, and moved Human Chess to prime time Saturday afternoon to make sure everyone can participate (and I have time to set it up). It actually cleaned up multiple problems I had with draft 1 so that worked out nicely.
THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!
PS, I didn't mean you had to move the LAN games.. I mean.. we BETTER have everything setup in 9 hours
Missing: CB's reading.
If we aren't having Terin teatime, maybe we should have horrible tea time again? Or another equivalent, since horrible was done last year.
I cannot think of any other comparable thing to watch, honestly.
I'm a fan of Tea time over wine... cuz I don't drink... and I LOVED the Tea Time. But the schedule is plenty full as is for me...
I honestly didn't know why Dr. Horrible was picked to begin with. Why did you chose it? Asking so I can try and brainstorm comparable things.
Under an hour & it's a singalong so it can keep folks' attention over the chaos.
No Official start/welcome? (or just not on the schedule)
Yeah, I think we'll do that just before dinner Thurs. That'll be the natural moment to bring everyone in.
Hey yo, @Linc . Change the time zone on the calendar to Eastern so it imports to my Google Calendar properly Currently, Google says it's in GMT and everything's off.
Hm. Said it was PST not GMT, but I switched it now.
The group photo and chess game currently overlap. Is this on purpose?
Group photo should be 15 minutes or less, so kinda. The idea is hopefully everyone goes from one to the other.
I think archery needs to be immediately following beer tasting. Do you guys do flaming arrows at night? Or how about bow and arrow mumbley peg?
For the potential tea party:The Guild is on Netflix I believe, those episodes are really short and amusing although not a sing-along. Or what about The Princess Bride?
I was kinda leaning towards Kung Fury...
HEY GUYS NOT MUCH TIME LEFT
I am trying to add to my google calendar, but i get "Cannot add calendar "epic2015"
You do not have access to epic2015's calendar"
@Zanthian you're adding from http://epic2015.sched.org/ ?
I just got the very best Icrontic swag of all time for the prize table. #realtalk
@CB you'd better use the big jar on that one.
A boner or a molded icrontic salute.
I also cannot add it to Google calendar.
Can we do an Icrontic-branded dildo for 2016? Who is leading this project.
I vote, you!
