The Most Disturbing Events at Gen Con 2009 Award

I am a gamer and generally tolerant of whatever game you choose to play or do at a convention. That said, the two events below were so deeply disturbing, so breathtakingly bizarre that I could not let them pass into memory.  I created a new yearly award for “Most Disturbing Event at Gen Con”  to […]

Review: True Dungeon at Gen Con 2009

True Dungeon is one of those events that I see every year at large conventions and just never made the time to see what it is about. Not really for any particular reason other than I had other games to play. This year one of my gaming buddies expressed an interest in giving it a […]

Gen Con 2009 Report –The Games We Played Part 1

Help Me Pick Events for Gen Con 2009

For the first time ever, I do not have a full plate of events before a convention. Due to a combination of laziness and real life, the only event tickets I currently own for Gen Con 2009 are for True Dungeon. This is not necessarily a bad thing, since I am on the hunt for […]

Gen Con Bankruptcy Update

This is something of formality, but I thought everyone might like to know that the Gen Con bankruptcy is now over. Strictly speaking the main part of the bankruptcy completed several months ago, but there were some small issues, minor debts and various other items that kept the bankruptcy filing open. I am happy to […]

Gen Con 2009 Event Catalog Posted!

Gen Con posted the current catalog of events (as of 4-12-09) for  Gen Con 2009. It is a massive Excel spreadsheet (or .csv file) that lists all the events currently planned for Gen Con 2009.
