ARGFest Catalogue Planning Wiki
ARGFest-o-con 2013 Seattle
The ARG Museum will have a display of collected Alternate Reality Games artifacts in Seattle at ARGFest 2013! Below you will find out how you can participate and help make the Museum a fantastic showing of creative items formed and collected during past ARG campaigns.
Come to Seattle, and get a hands-on look at some of the amazing talent that went into the design of many of these objects - from newspapers, to puzzley items, to character heirlooms - you name it! This is the stuff that helps to make ARGs that much more real and tangible.
What is the Artifact Museum?
Every year at ARGFest-o-con, we set up a display of items collected by players over the years - all the way back 2001, perhaps even earlier!
How can I help?
Whether you attend ARGFest or not, you can help populate its display.
- If you come to ARGFest, you can take along any items you'd like to display in the museum.
- If you can't make it to the fest, you may wish to mail your items to someone who is.
- We prefer all items to be registered beforehand, so that we know who brought what, and ensure that the items are safely returned to their respective owners.
Will my items be safe?
You can rest assured, we understand that while the street-value of most items are negligible, the personal value of many of these items is much greater, so we ARGFest staff keep a watchful eye while the display is publicly accessible, and the room it's in is locked the rest of the time.
- If you don't want to have a particular item on display itself, you may wish to provide a copy, or a photograph - hey, it's better than nothing! :)
How do I register items?
You can register items in multiple ways. It's still early in the year, but for now you can:
