1 Week 'Til GenCon

It's 1 week until GenCon. The show is sold out too. I'm not even sure what that means, aside from it's probably going to be croweded. There are literally thousands of games being run and everything from table top RPGs, to LARPs, to board games, to card games, to video games is going to be on display. So what are you looking forward to? Do you even go to cons?

GenCon is always kind of weird for me because as a rule I don't like, and don't do well in, large crowds of people. However, at GenCon I usually manage just fine. The crowds aren't as much a bother, and I think it's because while the rooms are full to bursting, the con staff have everything setup so you still always have space.

We'll see if that holds true this year for me as well, but I have no reason to believe it won't. As for what I'm looking forward to, I have no clue. Finding things I want to pin myself down for is hard this year. It might be the year I take the test and see just what GenCon has to offer without ever sitting at a table. I expect it's a lot.

  1. I LOVE gaming Cons, though sadly I haven't attended one in a couple of years. The primary attraction is seeing gaming friends I don't otherwise run into, as well making new gaming friends. Next, is the gaming - Cons are great for trying new games. They're also good at seeing how different GMs run games I know. Did I mention that I love gaming Cons?

    Never been to GenCon - one day. Quite a bit of the urgency is mitigated because of there being three annual solid gaming cons in my area. Those have the benefit of having far more of my friends at them than GenCon. However, I still plan on hitting GenCon & Origins at some point.

    Have a great time! Looking forward to hearing it.
