I live about 3 hours from GenCon and have family in Indianapolis I could stay with to go to the Con. My question is, what's coming out in time for the Con, or what is "must see" stuff I need to justify the trip.

Please add games or info about games that are worth making the trip for....

One of my disappointments from last year. Wished I'd at least tried a demo. Not sure if it would have been my kettle of fish (I bought the starter after the Con), but I wished I'd at least try.

I really looked forward to this one. Walked past the demo tables multiple times looking for an opening. Finally got a shot, and it just didn't do it for me.

I see you own a bunch of Savage Worlds stuff, so I picked it for my item. The new Deadlands: Reloaded Marshall's Handbook will be there, The Ether (Space: 1889) is due, Reality Blurs has said Iron Dynasty will be there, etc... In addition, I know that Pinnacle Entertainment Group is running a Savage Saturday night.

I think it depends on the GenCon that you want to experience. My group and I do a few events, but most of the 4 days are spent at the exhibit hall checking stuff out and doing demos. I think you can still have that kind of GenCon.

If you were looking to do events solid over the 4-days, that's going to be more challenging since pre-reg is closed.
