I have a slightly different take on this
The complaint is that everyone, after
going to the seminars, is spending their time playing AYAW.
It occurs to me that if that premise is
true, then the major draw for the attendants to even come to the hack fest is
to play AYAW.
How many people would still come if AYAW
(and other games) were not allowed?
Maybe they should incorporate AYAW into
the event. Offer prizes, and let people “get it out of their system”
(pardon the pun).
Also I would like to point out that a few
comments (I did not read them all) point out how AYAW created lasting bonds
between attendees, that otherwise would have never happened.
I myself had beet my best friend (over 20
years and counting) over a game of Sky Shark when we were both in college.
Not only has it been a lasting
relationship, but our families (wives, children and parents) are all friends as

"Is Werewolf Killing the Conference Hackfest?"
I think that the problem is that
these people are sad that they don't get to do something they love
anymore... i.e. hackfests
I, obviously, am also quite biased seeing that I love Werewolf. I mean,
come on, it's been suggested that I should try to drop some (most) of my
other stuff for the Labs at Origins just so that I can run AYAW, and I'm not
complaining. (How do you like my run-on skillz??)
I can understand their pessimism though, it was like when Zach and I tried to
pull Shannon away from Warcrack during the
con, she was sad the rest of the day...
