    Are you game for a Sugar Rush?

    Sorry to ask again, but we are trying to make plans for next weekend. When will the schedule for Day at the Park be released, or has it been released and I missed it?

    If we all bring umbrellas - it won't rain!

    But... if it does... the teams who played last time found that purchasing and bringing card holders was VERY helpful for making sure they didn't lose anything -- and it will keep your cards from getting wet.

    We were one of the teams with card holders. The first time we used sleeves was for rain gear games and we found it really helpful. Especially since if you make a mistake you can just re-sleeve the card and start over.

    I would point out that if you are planning on rain and want to write directly on the card sleeves, you will want something that is water resistant. We use grease pencils aka china markers. They can be found in most office supply stores but you do have to look for them.

    As a bonus, if you use your markers to write your answers on the scorecard, the MouseAdventure staff will laugh at the use of crayon when they start grading. See here or here (plus Adk's response immediately following).

    Thanks for the tips! I don't think I can find card sleeves in my area. I heard someone got them at walmart, but my walmart is lame. I looked extensively online but can't get them here fast enough. I did find this at office depot and may purchase that, but the back is solid. Will that matter?

    Thanks for the grease pencils idea. I've been wondering what to use. I will look at office depot. If I ask for china markers will they know what I'm talking about? Will regular crayon work?

    I also brought sleeves for rain gear games but didn't find them as helpful because we just had regular pen and pencil and so had to take them in and out. As soon as the paper got a little wet it was impossible to get it back in the sheet.

    I'm super excited for this format, but kind of already am questioning my enjoyment due to pregnancy fatigue. I'm in the first trimester and the fatigue has been crushing. My team mate already knows I may not be able to finish the game. The rain is seriously dampening my spirits. And I usually love rain. Sigh.

    The hourly forcast is saying 50% and 60% in the afternoon.

    Ah! China Markers! I've never heard of them. I must live in a shell. According to Officedepot.com, they have black or red in stores. All the pretty colors are sold online only. I really appreciate that tip.

    Card sleeves *should* be fairly easy to find. We were able to use ours from when we played Magic, but I have heard that some of the extreme couponers now like them which would make them more mass marketable. Look for them where they have baseball cards/ collectible card games. Alternatively, try to find a sports card store near you and they should have them in stock and be able to provide better customer service. I would not recommend a solid back.

    Regular crayons do not work, and especially not the crayons that they sell in the gift shop of the Disney Paradise Pier Hotel ballroom. Regular sharpies work on the plastic, but are not water proof and will stop working if you get them wet.

    I was able to get someone to point out where a China Marker was, but that could have just been lucky. I swear I had searched the area and didn't see them. I did have to buy a box of 12, but they weren't horribly expensive.

    I live in the middle of the black hole of shopping. Unless you are looking for an Asian store or restaurant, there just isn't much here. Finding and driving to a game store is out of the range of possibility for me today/tomorrow. My team mate is going to look at Walmart tomorrow. Hopefully that turns up something. A few years ago I tried really hard to find a game shop within an hour's drive of me, and came up with nothing! I'll give a quick search and probably have to let it go.

    Thanks so much for the feedback. I'm very excited about the prospect of China Markers!

    We put the station card sets in the card holders, and I got ours from Staples.

    Never argue with stupid people. They just drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience.
    I will believe it is a crisis when the people claiming it is a crisis start acting like it is a crisis.
    I prefer to let George Lucas disappoint me in the order he intended.

    Our team just had a telephone conference- we are gearing up for RainGear Games Version 2.0! Hoping we remember the lessons from last time. Hopefully this should clear out some of the crowds that were otherwise expected.
