First time coming to the convention and wanted to see if anyone can tell if the Dealers room will take Credit Card or is it cash only or cash preferred?

I want to say about 99% of dealers will be taking Credit Card, Debit Card payments.

I only say 99% because I have yet to see a cash only vendor and there may be some out there that I have yet to bump into.

Welcome first timer!

Yes, I know a proper 18XX tile should have a tile number.

Some dealers only take cash, but most are happy to take credit cards. If there is a specific dealer you are interested in you should contact them directly.

Edit to add:

While I've never seen a vendor at BGG.con who was not set up to take credit cards, I have once or twice run into someone whose credit card handling was temporarily down.

Each exhibitor (/vendor) handles their sales and payments independently. IIRC, last year the majority of vendors could process plastic, but that is not guaranteed in every case.

also, slightly off topic, be sure to bring cash for the flea market. If you're looking for not the latest, there are lots of good deals, but most are cash only.

Thanks everyone!! I wanted to figure out how much to plan to bring with me above what I wanted to for the Flea Market and it sounds like extra won't hurt.
