This year, while I will not have the pleasure of attending GenCon, I have two friends who will be there. Is there something I should ask them to pick up for me?

I have seen the list of games that will be at GenCon but that is not what I am after - I have a (very) little patience and a lot of games that I haven't played yet blush . So I can wait (I think).

I am more interested in promos or exclusive items - little things that I won't be able to get easily afterwards. Not necessarily for the new games - but for any games.

Thanks,
Concetta

The end of this geeklist has a list of some of the promos. Really hard to get a reliable/complete list for this sort of thing ahead of time though...

Item for Geeklist "Games Debuting for sale at Gen Con 2016 "

Is there a reliable place to get that DURING GenCon?

Not that I'm aware of. How would it exist? The reason that the list is hard to compile beforehand is that publishers don't all know what promos they will have in hand and even those that do don't necessarily communicate that through their own channels, let alone to a central repository on BGG. Once they have the promos in hand, they are at the convention busily handing them out and making sales, rather than poking around on BGG helping to compile a list of promos that might not even last through the first day.

I can see the community creating such a list, though.
Does that usually happen?

If you don't hear from anyone else, let me know.
I won't be doing the $50 purchase myself though.

Is there an actual thread for this kind of thing? I would really much love to have those Quadropolis tiles as well.

Keep in mind that these are all for sale and not for free. Are they con exclusive?

They are free with purchase of base game.

"Con exclusive" is hard to say, but they certainly won't be in retail.

Fantasy flight has a Rey and a Finn from Star Wars Destiny that you get from demoing.

Star Trek: Ascendancy has an exclusive space station mini set that you get from preordering (however, they will sell you sets as well if you bug them).
