WHAT IS GEN CON?
Gen Con is a consumer and trade experience dedicated to gaming culture and community.
Celebrating its 45th year in 2012, Gen Con "The Best Four Days in Gaming!" has become the largest annual consumer fantasy, electronic, sci-fi and adventure game convention in North America. Each year gaming enthusiasts converge to share their enthusiasm for all things gaming; whether its tournaments, celebrity appearances, exhibit hall booths, electronic games, workshops, seminars, anime, art shows, auctions or countless other activities.
A few of us will be there hanging out, blasting chiptunes, and participating in some panels! Should be pretty rad yall! Cya there, right? *REACH FOR THE STARS*
