Who Ya Gonna Call?

Ghost Patrol, apparently, to avoid any copyright issues.

Appropriately enough for an east bay-based Game Control (Lowkey and Desert Taxi), this Game is starting in Emeryville--at the Woodfin Suites Hotel, which Team Snout considered for the start of our egregiously-trademark-infringing Hogwarts Game, but decided against because of cost issues.

FUNNY STORY. We went with a nearby movie theatre instead, but the guy who was supposed to open the doors was over an hour late, and we ended up doing our start activity outside, on the sidewalk, with a tiny MacBook screen and dinky portable speakers. The flash-bang gag didn't work either, but that's another story.

(The problem was that we'd rented the theatre through a national rental program which sub-contracts out to local exhibitors, so we didn't actually have a local contact number and had to depend on the middleman for all communications that morning. It was not efficient or effective.)
