How many games should we plan on running? One? Two? More?

Yes. More than enough!

Plan to pitch because that's the main thing. ConPlanner and the pitch book are supplemental.

Hey folks... This is going to be my first time joining you fine folks. I was wondering, how late do games tend to go on the final day?

There's space for games Sunday morning, all the way up to 3pm. Most people start early if they are going to game Sunday.
The coolest of campers will take breaks in their Sunday games to help sweep out the lodges, or play in the main hall so they can help pack up the kitchen after lunch.

I don't understand how "more guns, not less" is supposed to be the answer. Let's look at a scenario in the current world and in the "more guns, not less" world.

Current world: A guy walks into a school and starts shooting students and teachers. Many people die until eventually the shooter kills himself.

"More guns, not less" world: A guy walks into a school and starts shooting students and teachers. In theory some teacher bravely starts shooting back at some point and possibly kills the shooter. Likely between when the shooter starts and when he is killed, some number of students/teachers are killed.

In both those scenarios some number of students/teachers are killed and the shooter dies. The only difference is how many students/teachers are killed.

How helpful is the consolation to the parents/siblings/loved ones of the dead in the latter scenario that "at least fewer people died than if that teacher didn't have that gun?"
Their loved ones are still dead! All the people in the room still witnessed a horrific thing and will need trauma therapy for years!

Why don't we just work towards the world where there are no guns? If the guns were not available, then none of the above scenarios could happen and no one would have to die or be traumatized for life.

If there were more guns in schools, not only would we be probably still be subjected to school shootings (after all, it's now a contest, not a slaughter!), but we'd inevitably be hearing regular stories about accidental shootings of a kid who brandished a water pistol, etc.

Any rules against getting pre-submission review/critique from friends/fellow designers?

There's really no way we could stop you from doing that!

I apologize if this has been asked before but should we be prepping 2h games or longer games? On ConPlanner it looks like all the slots are two hours but I see people talking about running games that I know couldn't possibly fit in a two hour time slot.

I saw all the two hour slots and assumed that was the preferred time. Most of the stuff I want to run needs 3-4h, so I was running around looking for stuff to fit in two hour slots. Feel much less stressed now. (Well, except for the ticks thing, but that is a different thread...)

The most useful description of difference between alligator and crocodile (both don't seem to have legs!)

Even simple math is beautiful, fun and surprising

Take a look at this diagram. It seems simple, doesn't it? HAH!

It means 1+...+11 = (11x12)/2 = 11x6 (the sides of the rectangle)
more generally, you'll always be able to arrange the integers 1 through n so that they fit into a rectangle with sides n/2 and n+1 (if n is even) or (n+1)/2 and n (if n is odd)
