Just curious what over the top events are folks planning to attend at Gen Con. You have your usual suspects like:

True Dungeon
Super Robo Rally
Giant King of Tokyo
Giant Catan
etc...

But, I just learned about a 50!! player game of Sails of Glory that's going to happen on Thursday. OMF

I think there's also going to be several hundred person Pathfinder game happening as well.

What else do I need to know about?

This year, I went with the literal interpretation of giant and am playing in one of the mammoth-pieced games of Pompeii. Throwing a player's piece into the volcano will be amusing.

This is the first event at my first Gen Con that I'm signed up for. Super excited!

Of the ones I did, I've only played Shear Panic, my plan is read through the rules and some walkthroughs for the others beforehand. I should really get on that today...
