Gen Con sells out.

Of badges:

​Gen Con Sells Out Historic 50th Convention

Indianapolis (August 14, 2017) Gen Con, North America’s longest-running and best-attended tabletop game convention, has announced a complete sellout of badges for its 50th convention to be held August 17-20 in the Indiana Convention Center. The convention will not sell badges on-site and attendees, as in prior years, will be asked to display their badges while attending the show. In addition to its 50th convention, this Gen Con marks 15 years in Indianapolis.

They sold out of four-day passes last month, but this news means that the one-day passes are now officially gone, too.  So if you were planning to just buy entrance at the door, well, there’s always the Indiana State Fair.  Those are always fun*.

*They legit are, actually.  So you might as well go if you’re in Indianapolis this weekend, because you ain’t going to Gen Con unless you already bought your ticket…

    That’d be me. I hadn’t successfully finagled a free day yet.
    But since I now live in the area, it’s not like that’s costing me anything.

      You should totally go to the fair, then.

        Already have. 😉 Taking the kids made it an educational field trip. That’s always easier to justify to myself.
        .
        The living history part of it is top notch. The art building was a sad joke. Many fewer vendors than I expected. More animals than my kids had any interest in seeing. Way fewer rides than I expected. My wife ran out of steam before we saw a third of the fair, so I can’t come in the cheese statues (I just really want to).

          I think cheese and butter are the Iowa state fair, not Indiana. As an old Indiana girl… Maybe they have done a change up.

          The cattle & horse barns were always where we went. Go figure. Farm kids.

          So what part of Indiana?
