Venture Demonstration Team Program

The Hidden City Games™ Venture Demonstration Team is a network of skilled and enthusiastic players across the United States and Canada who are trained to teach new players about Clout Fantasy™ and other HCG games. These fantastic volunteers are authorized to organize and run demos and tournaments at retail stores, game clubs, and conventions.
Why join the program? We think the world of our Venture Team members and want to reward them for their enthusiasm and commitment. As a Venture Team member, you’ll get:
* Venture points that can be redeemed for Clout products and promotional items
* Access to even more exclusive items through our auctions
* Invitations to special events and conventions
* Exclusive sneak peeks at upcoming events, publications, and promotions
* Access to the Venture Team area on our website, including the members-only Venture Team forum
* Scheduling and reporting via convenient online forms
Members who advance to higher levels in the program earn additional privileges, including limited-edition apparel and the chance to represent HCG at the game industry’s most important conventions, such as Origins and Gen Con.
How the program works: Once you join, you’ll receive a welcome packet with complete instructions for scheduling and reporting your first event. It’s pretty simple. All it takes is a little organizational skill. For each event you report, you’ll earn points that can be redeemed for cool promotional items and Clout products. Earning points also moves you up the ranks of the Venture Team. The higher your ranking, the more exciting the rewards.
To become a Venture Team member, you must:
* Be at least 18 years of age or older. (Proof of age is required.)
* Have reliable transportation, internet access, and a working phone number
* Hold at least one event per month
* Work with approved Venture Stores and encourage other retailers to become Venture Stores (Venture Stores get exclusive promotional items, first-look previews, and massive event support—all free.)
* Help us at local events and conventions whenever possible
* Conduct yourself in an exemplary manner and keep your uniform looking sharp (You’re representing us, after all!)
* Be aware that Venture Team membership is “at will” and can be canceled at any time by either party
* Have fun! Fun is contagious: If you love playing our games, other people will too.
Interested? Join our team! If you think you have the commitment, professionalism, and excitement it takes to be a Venture Team member, we would love to hear from you. Please submit the attached application. We will respond by email in 10–14 days (longer during holidays and convention times).

If you are accepted into the program, we’ll send you a welcome packet explaining what’s expected of you in more detail, the materials available to you, and so on. You will also be contacted by a Hidden City Games manager, who will coach you on how to be a great ambassador for gaming and answer any questions you may have.
Thank you, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Venture Demo Team!
