Lots to entertain the Game Enthusiast at Dragon Con:
Simulators, Board Games, Card Games, LARPs, Miniatures, RPGs, and an ARCADE…
Yup, You Heard Right… WE HAVE A BRIDGE SIMULATOR!!
A BIG Welcome to Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator! LTEBridge.com will have a bridge set up in the Westin, Chastain J
- Created by independent game developer Thom Robertson, Artemis turns any room into the bridge of a spaceship. Part LAN party, part LARP, and part RPG, Artemis is a teamwork experience like no other!
- Crews of 6 to 8 players fill the roles of Captain, Helm, Tactical, Communications, Science, Engineering, and (optional) Fighter pilot(s). Host staff will provide a brief overview of the game controls, then serve in an advisory role during your mission: your crew “has the bridge”. The mission success or failure is completely up to your crew!
- Channel your inner Kirk/Picard/Janeway, Scotty/Geordi, Data/Spock… and report to our fully-functional bridge in the Westin at Chastain J. Not sure you have enough like-minded friends to join you? Stop in and sign up for an empty crew slot, and make new friends!
- This event is included at NO additional cost
- Due to expected high demand, we recommend you sign up for mission times in advance at Chastain J
- Audience seating is available; seating preference may be given to crews who
are signed up for the next mission time.
- Training videos will be playing in the audience/staging area: feel free to
stop by early to watch the training, or watch the previous crew and learn from
- Though Artemis content is rated PG, we ask that players under age 15 be
accompanied by a responsible guardian.
- NOTE: Special effects lighting (stobes, color changes) will be in use during missions
