pic2329428_mdRavenwood Castle is expanding, and is a really awesome way. The Malted Meeple will soon be opening in Hudson, OH, and with it comes board gaming, mega milkshakes, and craft beer. The pub will be modeled after Ravenwood’s Raven’s Roost Pub, and will be a casual environment to play and enjoy a frosty beverage. This will be the first location, as the The Malted Meeple has plans to expand to more locations in the future.

The idea of Ravenwood Castle was already really awesome, and the addition of a separate pub is a fantastic idea. I wish them the best of luck, and desperately plead with them to be successfully enough to expand into Connecticut. I’d love some place like this to be local to me!

Ravenwood-a-exteriors-01Love games? Live in Ohio? Want to live in a freakin’ CASTLE? You’re in luck! Ravenwood Castle in New Plymouth, OH is looking for someone to teach people games and help keep up in the inn.

From the posting:

This is a salaried position, and includes living arrangements in the castle. This position is long term, and will be a part of the castle’s management team. Hospitality experience would be great, but isn’t strictly necessary.

What we’re looking for is: the ability to work hard, the willingness to learn a variety of tasks and the ability to work well within a small team.

Potential tasks on any given day include: maintenance, office work, food service, housekeeping, light cooking, tending bar, event planning and teaching and/or playing games with guests. Would require very occasional travel (to GenCon, for instance). 

As Chief Game Instructor, this position will have primary responsibility for teaching games to guests of all experience levels, aiding in the design and building of our game library, and assisting with the planning and running of our two annual game conventions.

Make no bones about it, this position is a lot of work, and is anything but a traditional 9 to 5 job. But it’s also a heck of a lot of fun, and you get to be a part of something truly cool.

If you or someone you know is interested in helping us make Ravenwood Castle the premier gaming getaway destination, email me at jobs at ravenwoodcastle.com.

So, yeah. You’d get to live in a castle and play games for a living. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.

Ravenwood Castle is a medieval-themed Ohio hotel, with gamer-friendly accommodations. The Castle has a library of board games for guests to borrow, provides package arrangements for roleplaying group getaways, and hosts two annual game conventions: Hoop & Stick Con in the spring and Con in the Castle coming up in September.
