I received an email today with update to BGG.Con. It says:

Quote:
Hello BGG.CON Attendees! You are receiving this message because you either attended BGG.CON 2015 and/or are registered to attend BGG.CON 2016.

I'm pretty sure I'm still on the wait list...did everyone get this email?

Maybe the author forgot to say that it also includes those on the wait list for BGG.CON 2016.

I do not think it means what you think it means.

Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you have lost sight of your inner purpose. Your state of consciousness is primary. All else is secondary.

Yes, I received the email. I attended in 2015 and am registered for 2016.

That email went out to everyone on our "BGG Conventions" email list - those who gave permission to be contacted when registering for a BGG event. We started it last year I think, so it includes everyone who registered for BGG.CON Spring and Fall since 2015.

Is there a way to find out my status on the wait list and what are my chances of getting tickets to attend from the wait list.

Do people sell their tickets closer to the con as they have to cancel? If I am willing to pay twice the cost of the tickets to someone selling, will I have an opportunity to do so and where would I look to find people selling their tickets?

No. Selling tickets at higher than the price the original buyer paid for them is a big no-no and will get the seller kicked out of all future BGG.CONs.

The buyer may also get sanctioned, IIRC.

Of course, that only applies if BGG finds out about it, and I know there have been "premium" sales that were never officially known about.

I went out there in search of experience, to taste and to touch and to feel as much, as a man can before he repents...

Huh. I wonder if I chose not to be contacted....

How would I view or change that preference?

Premium Sales are frowned upon and can carry some [deep, booming voice] heavy penalties.

As Chris mentioned though it has happened behind the scenes before.
