GenCon 2021 - The Best 4 Days in Gaming are Back!

A year off because COVID and a month later than usual, but GenCon is back live and in-person this week!  The Con kicks off this Thursday the 16 and continues through Sunday.

 

This will be a weird year, I think.  They cut attendance by a huge amount to keep it less crowded.  Instead of the convention hall being open 24/7 they're closing it at midnight each evening for cleaning/sanitation.  Masks are required at all times regardless of vaccination status.  And vendors aren't allowed to have "first come first serve" time-limited offers to discourage rushing and crowding to booths.  Also, since this got pushed forward a month it overlaps with football season so rather than using Lucas Oil Field for overflow, satellite events will be held at local game stores, comic shops and bars throughout the area.

 

I'm loading up the truck and driving out to Indianapolis tomorrow and will be at the con all week.  If any of you are in the area let me know and I'll buy you a beer. :)  If there's anything you want to see from the show let me know and I'll try to find it for you.  If there are any con exclusives/new releases you're trying to get your hands on, also let me know and I'll see what I can do.

 

Pics, reviews, impressions and updates to come throughout the week as much as my memory and sobriety allows!

For real, the half-capped attendance is nice. The dealer hall isn't claustrophobic. You can actually enjoy checking out and hanging at booths. I know it's only a one year change but damn it's pretty sweet.
