|conventional convention, be it simply for fun or for education. Let Texicon's Strike Team work with you to create a unique
experience that will be remembered.
Texicon's Strike Team has two aspects. The first one is sending the Strike Team to the event location. The second one is
the PR system. Both aspects can be hired together or separately. Click Here to learn more.
After providing us with information about your event, we begin assembling the Strike Team. The process includes combing
through our large pool of Game Masters and hand picking those who will best fit your needs. We then provide them with all of
the tools and resources necessary to make your event a resounding success. Part of this process includes us working
closely with both you and our Strike Team to design a list of games that will be run at your event. Once this is done, we turn

will be the one to direct and assign duties to the rest of the Strike Team.
What does the Strike Team do?
The Strike Team hosts games and joins games. But not only does it run games, it also attempts to ensure that the games it
hosts have the optimum number of players. It does this by adding Strike Team members to the game where needed. This
means that the best gaming experience can be had by your attendees. Don't worry about your players/ attendees not being
able to join a full game. Should one of your attendees desire to join a game that has the maximum number of players, one or
more Strike Team member will simply step away from the game. Then, your people can join that game and enjoy
Furthermore, Strike Team members will join non-Strike Team games that need players. Because we send more than the
minimum number of Game Masters to your event, the Strike Team has extra members. This allows them to send Game
Masters, who then will act as players, to games that need more people. This also helps to ensure that every game at your
event is exciting, challenging, and enjoyable.
Finally, the Strike Team can run demonstrations of games. This portion of the Strike Team service has limitations and
conditions. Contact Texicon for details.
The second aspect of Texicon's Strike Team is Texicon's PR system. Our trained and dedicated staff is connected to game
low attended game into a fully attended game.
What does the PR system do?
We discuss your event with you to find out your specific needs. Then, we begin spreading the word about your event. We
design a PR campaign that has maximum effect. This can include flyer distribution, in person contact with various gaming
groups, and web discussions. Please note: flyers can be designed by us or provided by the client. Web discussions can
include posting information on game manufacturer websites, gaming forums, Facebook, and gaming Blogs. We also can post
discussions about your event with follow-up discussions.
Who can take advantage of Texicon's PR system?
It is available to Game Masters, game stores, tournament organizers, and game conventions.
