Mission Improbable: Blagging into Tokyo Games Show

#1 Post by Enki » Fri Sep 26, 2008 11:55 am

So, it occurred to me that the Tokyo Games Show will be on whilst myself and Howard are out in the great 'Land o' the Rising Sun' on our last two days. Only problem? T'is only the business days... the open public days are the two days after we return back to the sunny British shores. My new found mission? Somehow integrate into the crowds of developers, retailers, publishers et all and make our way in there with just a business card, an application form and some charm.

How, I hear you mumble? Just for fun I think I'll leave that to guess work and see what you come up with. :lol:

DEBATE! Would you be willing to blag your way into an international gaming event and if so how would YOU do it? :shifty:

way to get in:

1) start a game development company.
2) start a fake game development company. (this is easy just sign your self in as working for FAC inc they never check)
3) say your from a out of business company
4) say your a reporter for an unheard of English newspaper
5) go in cosplay and say you part of the show.
6) sneak in the back door.
7) dig a tunnel like in the great escape.
8) sneak in the day before and hide in a cupboard.
9) fire a zip wire onto the roof
10) just fly out 2 days latter then planed

Or maybe you're a reporter for this website? Surely all those people who report for other websites don't have press passes. Maybe kodama could issue them? :P

Bring a camera and start filming the event with either yourself or Howard hosting, starting outside where the security guys can see you.

Flirt/charm your way in or depending on the security guard, have Howard do it. :D

When is it you're going again?

Just convince yourself you truly belong there, it'll be easy after that.
