Hola BGG! We thought we would send a press release to the forum about our 2014 Gen Con tour. I know hope that this announcement does not wrinkle any noses as we do appreciate your privacy. It looks like this forum space is for this type of thing however so here we are posting away. If this is incorrect please let us know by PM and we would be happy to remove the post…

Geek Nation Tours is proud of its continuing partnership with one of the largest and most prestigious gaming conventions in the world. That’s right – we are headed back to Gen Con Indianapolis 2014! Gen Con has along history of offering the very best in gaming conventions. Dive into every type of gaming imaginable - roleplaying games, card games, boardgames, tabletop games and computer games, just to mention just a few. They even have Geek Speed Dating and a marathon..... Game to your heart’s content with old friends or the new ones you will meet.

Want to do some shopping or see what’s new in the gaming world? Are you interested in finding out about all the upcoming releases for the next year? Perhaps you would like to mingle with celebrities from the gaming world and see what they are working on. Maybe you want to pit your gaming skills against the best in the world or perhaps try out a few games that you have always wondered about. Gen Con is the best place in the world to do all these things. There will also be plenty of time to get some photos with cool Cosplay people or even wear a costume yourself!

Geek Nation Tours always makes sure there is plenty to do prior to Gen Con proper and 2014 will be no exception as we will continue to offer exclusive gaming opportunities. Each year our tour participants get to game with the people that design, develop and produce the games they love. This year our theme will be Classic Science Fiction and Starship simulators! First off we will be playing the new hotness from Stronghold Games – Space Cadets Dice Duel! Stephen Buonocore(owner of Stronghold Games) and the game designer (Geoff Engelstein) will be there to teach us this simple to play, fast and furious super fun new release. They will also sit down and roll some dice with us and thus this is a great opportunity to visit and game with creators themselves.

The Kentucky Fried Gamers crew will be a large part of our “Space Cadet” extravaganza and as a matter of fact we will be joining them and their membership for much of the time while we are atGen Con. If you ever wanted to be a part of the Gen Con community this is your chance! You are sure to leave the tour with new gaming friends from all around the world. Oh and since we will be playing in a brewhouse each tour participant will enjoy a Beer Sampler from Scotty’s and the Thr3e Wise Men brewing Company.

“We want more Sci-Fi gaming goodness!” you say? Ever wanted to be on the bridge of a Starfleet ship as they run through a “Kobayashi Maru-like” training exercise? Think you can do better? Well this time there will be no re-programming as we hop aboard a 2 hour total emersion experience with the incredibly popular Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator. Tried Artemis before? Not like this you haven’t. You will be in full costume and everyone knows your drill sergeant is not the friendliest of people…

Are you a Gen Con newbie or a veteran? Both will appreciate Geek Nation Tours ability to make the registration process easier for all. While your 4-day Gen Con badge is included in the tour package, you will still have to register for events. To that end, we will be arranging two pre-registration conference calls via Skype to help expedite the registration process and to help everyone choose the events they want. Are you slightly overwhelmed by the registration procedure? Not sure what to register for when the cart opens? Worried that you might be missing the very best in seminars or gaming opportunities? Let Geek Nation Tours ease your mind. We will be joined by the D6 Generation crew for our Pre-Registration Conference calls, which will take place in the spring of 2014. Even before we arrive in Indianapolis, Geek Nation Tours will endeavour to make the Gen Con experience exceptional…

We will also be hosting our traditional “Welcome and How to Get the Best out of Your Gen Con” dinner on this tour. This year we will be joined by the crew of the D6 Generation Podcast (Gen Con veterans) and Tom Vasel and Eric Summerer from the Dice Tower Podcast. All will give us tips on how to best experience our convention. Further, we are proud to announce we will again be handing out our badges and event tickets as well! That’s right, no ticket pickup lines and no delivery costs for any items that are pre-registered for by June 30th! Our welcome dinners are always informative and loads of fun. They are great for newbies and veterans alike - you are sure to leave with a smile on your face, a full belly and all the information necessary to get the most out of your Gen Con experience.

Still want more? Geek Nation Tours is working on some other super cool special guests for the Welcome Dinner. Visit this site often for updated nformation.

Join us for "The Best Four Days of Gaming”!

Hola all!

Geek Nation Tours is pleased to announce that Garrett Wang will be joining us for our entire tour! Now all is complete as we will have Ensign Harry Kim to complement our Sci-Fi Starship simulator gaming theme. Hang on to your seats and get ready for an incredible ride as we take on Stronghold Games – Space Cadets Dice Duel and the Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator!

We feel that this is a perfect addition to our theme… but it will be up to you to get Garrett back into gaming (hasn’t gamed since prior to Voyager (D&D))… I have recruited the D6 Gen crew to guide him on the way to geeky gaming fun (or is that corruption )… Insert malevolent laughter….

Take a look at the tour description at: http://www.geeknationtours.com/index.php?pageid=31&tourid=33

Should be an awesome time!

Can’t wait to get to Gen Con
