Gen Con 2018, T-minus 203 days

The beginning of the year doesn’t just include resolutions and goals but it means preparations.  Even though August is a ways off, planning for the biggest show of the year, Gen Con, starts now.  Yesterday, the first volley of activity for this great convention started with the opening of event submissions.

Gen Con 50 Recap Day 4

See Recap Day 1 or Recap Day 2 or Recap Day 3

The last day of the Con was here and my big Loopin’ Chewie Tournament was in the morning.  I say “big” because it had apparently sold out all 36 slots.  Last year I had four people show up so this was going to be interesting.

Gen Con 50 Recap Day 3

See Recap Day 1 or Recap Day 2

Just like Friday, my friend and I cleared Saturday morning to run over to the Mythic Games booth and try out the other scenario.  This scenario is supposed to show the games non-fantasy options and be less narrative and focused more on strategy.

Gen Con 50 Recap Day 2

As I said in my Day 1 report, seeing the Time of Legends: Joan of Arc display case had me ditching events to check it out in the dealer hall.   My friend and I lined up at the appropriate entrance and bee-lined to the Mythic Games booth to sit down for a demo as soon as the hall opened.

Gen Con 50 Post Script

So we’re in the Indy Airport, Granite City and Gen Con is over. I was obviously way too busy to keep up with the blog but I have a lot of notes ready and will try to get them out in the next week or so.

It was a spectacular Con and I’m excited to work on my events for next year.

Gen Con 50 Recap Day 0

With a lot of the drudgery of travel out of the way, I was able to get my badge and event tickets in record time. Even though the line was about 300 people deep, the extra support staff hired for the event this year got us through the will-call line in about 20 minutes.

Gen Con Bound and Arrival

Gen Con prep this year was a bit time consuming but I was able to get through it before we left on Tuesday. This was the first time we left early but the flight prices were so much cheaper even with an extra hotel night that we decided to come out early.

After a 3 hour flight delay and some hotel hijinks, we got in bed at 3am. Luckily, we had a ton of drink tickets so a double scotch helped move things along.
