Gen Con is my favorite convention. It’s one of those conventions that I feel does nearly everything right. Registration for events happens beforehand. The convention center and surrounding environs are big enough that the convention (minus the exhibition hall) doesn’t feel too terribly crowded. This will be my fourth year going, and my third year for coverage here at The Cool Ship.
This year, I planned convention activities for nine people. I won’t do that again. It’s way too stressful. I did, however, get us into a bunch of events I think we’ll really enjoy like a big Pathfinder game, a massive Call of Cthulhu game, and hopefully lots of time for free gaming and steak. Mmm. Steak.
So, starting Wednesday the 13th, The Cool Ship goes into Gen Con coverage mode. Every night, we’ll recap our day, telling you what we saw, who we met, and what we did. We’ll give out recommendations for new games every day. I hope you’ll join us. It’s going to be a good time.
