Editing and Tagging Games

If you have submitted a game for Hydra, you now have the ability to edit it. Head to the Run a Larp page, and select your game from the Games submitted menu (you must be logged in to see this).  Or, if your game has been approved, you can edit it from the game's detail page.

Genres can now be added to your games as tags. Tags are separated with spaces - a new tag will be created for each word. If you wish to use multi word tags, use the underscore_format. The underscores will be replaced with spaces in the game detail view. Feel free to tag with any genre you think will be useful for hydra attendees to filter by (see the Games page).

Games have just started to go up. Head over to the Games section and take a look. If you are interested in running a game at hydra, either submit a game, or get in touch.

If you are running a game at Hydra and have teasers or photos you would like to share, get in touch -  we can put them in the slider above. Likewise, if you have any photos that you don't mind sharing from past Hydras, it would be good to hear from you.

We are going to open up game selection this year soon after Kapcon (i.e in the week or so following the 18th of January). Please sign up now so we have a good idea of how many games are required. 

Hydra is also in need of a cook. All costs will be covered, plus a small payment for your time, free entry to games, and the adoration of hydra's attendees. Requirements to be able to cook meals for a large number of people on a set timetable, and be able to provide for a number of different dietary requirements. Get in touch if you are interested. See the details page for last year's menu.
