While I’m not going to have a game fee for BoH, I am inviting people to contribute props and/or supplies. This is by no means mandatory, but if you’d like to help stock the game, it’d be hugely appreciated.
I’m going to start a list of things we need, and if you want to choose item(s) off of it, feel free. I am taking care of food because I have specific things I want in that regard. Everything else is fairly minor and inexpensive. If you get an item, I’ll arrange to claim it from you before the game (since I obviously need to set up the house prior to your arrival).
The only other expense I can foresee is our jackets. If, for some reason, you don’t think you’ll be able to order yours within the next month, let me know ASAP and I’ll figure out a way to get you one. I’d like to have at least a couple of weeks to be able to adorn them to our likings.
Here’s the list thus far:
Three cases (24 each) of bottled water (this gives us each 9 bottles of water for the weekend)
Powdered drink mix singles, various flavors. (Generic Wal-Mart flavors are hella cheap and taste just fine.)
Coffee/Tea/Cocoa K-cups for the Keurig (available at Target - I can get these if no one's really sure about them)
Outdoor Lawn Trashbags (We need a LOT of these – we’ll be using them on windows to black out the house)
Colored lightbulbs – blue and red – four of each
2 rolls of painter’s tape
Material, any kind (to drape over furniture that doesn’t exist IC on the ship)
9 Pips for military uniforms (I think we can get little stars or shiny buttons in the Notions section of any craft store.)
As I/we come up with more ideas for decoration and I run through the plot and see what props we need, I’m sure the list will grow. Hopefully we’ll be able to scrounge a lot of what we need from ‘round our homes or from thrift stores, too.
