    RSVP.

    If you don’t see your city in the list and would like to start a Meetup, please do the following:

  • MEETUP TIPS FROM THE MAFIA WARS TEAM

     Meetup Location

    o Use resources like Yelp (http://www.yelp.com) and Google Search to find fun locations in your city.

    o Locations that are especially great for Meetups include bars, cafes, & restaurants.

    o Call potential locations to learn which one best fits your group.

    o Make sure you have secured a location for your Meetup. Nothing’s worse than having everyone

    show up and get turned away.

     Meetup Day Preparation

    o What To Do

     Encourage everyone to bring cameras and video cameras and to post their photos & videos

    to the forum post for “Meeting of the Mobs”: http://zyn.ga/69p They could be featured on

    the Mafia Wars Facebook Fan Page and the Mafia Wars Blog! (Hint: Whole-group photos are

    our favorite.)

     If you bring a sound system, create a fun music playlist.

     Videotape people’s questions and comments for the Mafia Wars Team.

     Other suggested video topics: Favorite thing about Mafia Wars, Features you’d like

    to see in the game, Favorite Mafia Wars city and why.

     Post any suggestions and feedback regarding how to run successful Meetups to the forum

    post for “Meeting of the Mobs”: http://zyn.ga/69p

    o What To Bring

     Some markers/pens and name tags to help everyone learn each others’ names.

     Some Zyngo cards (Page 8)

     Getting the Word Out

    o 1 or 2 days before the Meetup, use the “Talk about this Meetup” section on the bottom of your

    Meetup page to send a reminder to all the people who RSVPed for the event. Example: San

    Francisco: http://zyn.ga/6C1

    o Announce your Meetup on local event & news websites. (Find local event websites by typing key

    words like “NYC events” or “local events in New York” into a search engine.)

     Examples of NYC-based event sites:

     http://www.yelp.com/events/nyc

     http://www.nyc.com/events

     http://new.york.eventguide.com

     http://newyork.timeout.com

     http://www.nycgo.com/events

     http://nymag.com/arts

     http://www.ny.com/sports
