Note: â€œTaxi Gamer?â€ What the heck is a â€œTaxi Gamerâ€?
The term is a riff off of â€œTaxi Dancerâ€ which was an institution at dance halls in the 1920s, '30s and '40s, where men without a dates could dance with a skilled dancer. Updating this to AnimeBoston's Live Gaming area, a Taxi Gamer is a member of our staff on call for a pick-up game if you have a little time to kill between panels or other con events.
The default Taxi Gamer game will likely be Dominion, because it is
a) a great game,
b) easy to learn,
c) fairly quick to play (30-40 minutes), and
d) able to handle 2-4 players well!
