Gen Con


We're in the thick of Gen Con day 2, but that doesn't mean the show's over by any stretch. Arcane Wonders is here, and they've got a post talking about all the cool things they've got going on in their booth just over *points* there.

And no, I don't mean that I will be finding my "special someone" while here at the show, breaking my 7 long years of being single... at least, I don't think that'll happen. No, I'm talking about the popular card game. Fog of Love will be here in Indy, and are also talking about the game coming to a broader description.

Psst. Hey... Gen Con is this week. Pass it along.

Ares Games will be there. And they're going to be there big and in style. They have a lot going on, including Tripods & Triplaes, Battlestar Galactica - Starship Battles, WW2 Quartermaster General Second Edition, and much, much more. Have yourselves a look-see.

If you didn't see the stories earlier (and you've been living under a rock), Gen Con is this week. The whole gaming world is converging on the ICC, and that includes Catalyst Game Labs. They'll be here with the new Shadowrun 6th Edition and a whole bunch of extras. Like what? Like see below.

A big attraction every year at Gen Con is Fantasy Flight's booth. They've always got a crowd in front of their display case, as it's always stocked with the latest and greatest things. This year, certainly, will be no different. What kinds of things might they have? Let's take a look.

Yes, it's Gen Con week. That means lots of announcements about what's going to be at the show. Here is CMON's (where I'll be most of the time, so stop by and say hello). What sort of things can you also see in the booth (besides me)? Let's take a look.

Good lord, Gen Con is just a couple days away. Hell, some of you may be on your way to Indy already. For those that'll be here, Cryptozoic has posted up what you can expected over in their booth, with a look at some preview releases.

Did you know that Gen Con is just next week? Yeah. Crazy, right? Well, for those that'll be going to the show (and I know there's a bunch of you out there), AEG is no taking pre-orders for their upcoming releases that they'll have there. And you can save on shipping because you can just pick up your games while in Indy.

Wyrd Games loves to go all-out for Gen Con. And, I mean, why not? It's 4 days of gaming with tens of thousands of gamers from all over the world. For those that'll be at the show, they've posted up what Malifaux and The Other Side releases they'll have at the show.

They're also hiring a pair of game designers. Considered by many to be the "holy grail" of gaming jobs, if you think you have what it takes, send in your resume.

Good lord, we're damn-near to Gen Con. There's only about... oh... a billion more things I need to do before then (rough estimate). While you're planning out your "To do" lists for the show, you should check out Wyrd's post about what all new goodies they'll be bringing with them. That way, you can know to stop by (or order yourself a Ninja Shopper to help you out).

Gen Con is arguably the biggest gaming event in North America. And so, a lot of companies pull out all the stops and get some amazing stuff prepared. Wyrd certainly does. They've got the new Nightmare Box that is getting a special Gen Con edition. Want to see what's in it? Have a look below.

Well, we're a little over a week into July. That means that Gen Con is less than a month away. Gamers are rejoicing. Game companies are preparing. And everyone's anxious. Of course, as thousands and thousands of gamers will be headed to Indy, companies are showing off what they'll have their. In this instance, it's Z-Man Games.

Gen Con is billed as the Greatest Four Days in Gaming. Fantasy Flight Games is one of the biggest gaming companies out there (owned by Asmodee, one of the even biggerest gaming companies out there). The two are teaming up, as Gen Con has announced a multi-year sponsorship deal with Fantasy Flight. If you thought you saw a lot of FFG banners and stickers and such around before, just wait.

Considering the past several years, Gen Con has sold out, it might behoove you to head on over and pick up your badges now. Sure, August might be a little bit away, but you don't want to be left out in the cold (or, since it's Indianapolis in August, the heat) without a badge.
