This will be my 3rd attendance of the Gencon board game convention.  This year it will be held from Aug 2-5 in Indiana.
If any else is planning on attending let me know and we can meet up and play some board games and I'll bring you a rare DC games division mug.

Unfortunately a bit far away for me.  One year, though!  Do they actually have video games there now?  I thought it was more tabletop rpg and board games, but it might have updated...

I knew about the RPGs :)  I just didn't know about the video games.  I guess that they're trying to fend off PAX.  I was thinking about going to PAX East or PAX Unplugged next year as both are closer to me than GenCon or Origins.  But considering the fact that I'm supposed to be trying to purchase a house next year, it probably won't happen.

Back from gencon!

It was a *ton* of fun, as it has been in the last 3 years.

Though I will say that most of my fun is increasingly based on laughing and joking and hanging out with the friends I go and room with, and less and less based on the games and gaming.. Just FYI.

That's how it has been for me the last few times I've been to Dragon*Con, so I don't think that is an unusual occurrence.

Glad to hear that you had a good time!
