As if we haven't blocked off our calendars for the next three cons already.

Last few years I've taken Tuesday off for pre-con travel as well. :-)

Oh, and I'm having a birthday party on that Tuesday. If you're reading this, you're invited.

What to bring?

Games I want to play.
People to play them with me.
Games I don't want to play and people to play them with yourself. :-)

I don't remember if the block filled up last year but it doesn't hurt to make a reservation as soon as you think you will be going. I have had my reservation since the end of November. When they release the block "code" I just call the hotel and apply it.

Last year the room block filled up and was extended several times.

Rooms with 2 beds are the hardest to get; none are available on the hotel website right now.

For those of us who are looking at our budgets: What other fees are there? I'm not talking about food, I mean like are there event tickets, board game library passes, or evening events to consider?

Nope. No. Nada. Once you're in, you're in.

I'll qualify Jon's reply a bit - there are a few ways to spend a little extra money if you so chose - the Exhibitor hall, the Flea Market, and the Spiel-A-Thon has a suggested donation (being a charity-funding event) - but those are all obviously entirely optional events. The other events and tournaments (poker tournament, game show, puzzle hunt, etc.) are all free to all (well, not all - they are space limited and sign-up sheets will be posted at the con, one day before each event will take place).

It's also one of the things I love about the Con - no silly nickel-and-diming you!

Access to a game library of 4500+ (probably 5K by November) games, including the newest releases from Essen.
