Artemis at Mini Maker Faire!

TL;DR: John Hawley’s Artemis 2.0 will be at Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire, we will be running it, and we need your help!

Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire is just around the corner – September 13th & 14th!  One of the features of this year’s MMF is John Hawley’s Artemis 2.0 setup.

Some background: Years and years ago, Thom Robertson dreamed of hooking his & his friends’ Commodore 64 computers together for networked game play.  Years and years later, he decided to make that a reality.  The result is Artemis, the spaceship bridge simulator!   Basically, you & five of your friends can get together & play Star Trek^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H space adventures!

In 2013, Greg from the Albuquerque Comic Expo partnered with Quelab to build a starship bridge to bring the Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator to life. John designed & led the build that Quelab did, and  a team of Quelabbers ran it at ACE 2013.  Pictures of the construction were uploaded to the Quelab Flickr feed, and you can see the USS Q Maden Flight, Quelab Artimis Starship Bridge in Action @  A good overview of the game can be seen at (some adult language).

Well, John loves progress and has built Artemis 2.0, and is bringing it to this year’s Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire, AND he needs Quelab’s help to run it.

I am soliciting volunteers to help run the Artemis Spaceship Bridge at ABQ MMF 2014; duties will include manning the reservations table to sign up teams, familiarizing new teams with the program & helping oversee each mission run.  Right now we are planning to follow the same format we followed @ ACE 2013, with hour blocks reserved netting approximately 30 to 40 minutes of actual game play.
