Gen Con 2017, Anyone?

Hey guys, I'm not dead, honest!  *Plops a plate of cookies on the table*

Anyone headed to Gen Con 2017 in August?  I'm not looking forward to how packed everything will be with four day passes already sold out and one day passes likely to sell out soon, but still, GEN CON!  I was hoping with the big 50th anniversary this year, maybe I'd get to see some familiar faces.

(It may be much later than I used to do this, but I wouldn't be me if I didn't make one of these posts!)

    So true, Sox.  And yes, I will be running around GenCon as usual and we should see each other for sure!

    Anyone else hitting it this year?

    I have to pass :(. I bought a house and now I have to fix everything wrong with it. We're still not sleeping in the master bedroom, *sigh*.

    Hope you all enjoy it, let me know how crowded it is. They've sold out several (all?) days this year, and I'm kind of concerned about the level of crowd...

    Awesome!  What day were you headed down, Wizard?

    Yea, four day badges sold out a while ago, the Saturday badges sold out after that, and they have announced that they do not expect to have any tickets available at the door.  I'm not looking forward to the crowds at all, particularly since Gen Con had already started feeling a bit too cramped with all the people, but hey, can't miss the 50th!  Unfortunately, we didn't do great for a hotel... we're two or three miles away from the convention center, which means a long walk twice a day and no going back to the hotel for lunch this year.

    One of these years you need to come again, Drak!  (We need to have another Continuum party!)

    Indeed we do, Sox!

    I'll be there Thurs eve-Sun (leaving Sun morning). So at the show pretty solid for Friday and Saturday. I've got the small wizardlings signed up for some 1st RPG and foam sword shenanigans, I'm competing in one of the Hearthstone tourneys and we'll be hitting the retro arcade a lot. And on the show floor of course. 

    Let me know when you'll be free and we'll navigate to each other!
    I'll SMITE you
