hello all,

I tried looking at last year's posts before making a thread but I either did not find the info or the links had been removed.

When/where are ticket sales announced. I know unlike PAX that the date/time is announced in advance.

On last year's ticket sales post I didn't find finds link to actually register tickets. Will there be a link? It's it through the BGG store?

Thanks for your help. I'm arranging my first trip this year after being caught without a ticket last year.

Generally, badges (tickets) go on sale around the first week of March. BGG said they would announce a week prior. The announcement generally has a link. If not, you can get to the registration (purchase) page via the orange oval with the word "Events" at the top of this page.

Does "Betrayal at House on the Hill" count as a zombie game?

Usually in March. Jeff will make a notice on the main BGG page shortly before that as a heads up.

Also, tickets for BGG's Spring Con over Memorial Day Weekend are still on sale and easier to come by.

Good luck getting a ticket for the November Con... we're all going to need it.

I'm figuring PAX unplugged should be a good alternative or maybe Gen Con. Still, I'd prefer to be at BGG.

We definitely need all the luck for this year and next year - until it moves to Downtown Dallas.

In the Premium Badge sales thread, right after they sold out, Aldie made a quick post announcing that general BGG.CON badges would be sold on March 1st. No note on time, but I would expect a post here, or at the very least, some tweets from the BGG.CON account at least a few hours in advance setting a sale time.

That is to say 1PM CST: 11AM PST, noon MST or 2PM EST. Not everyone lives in Texas.

And not everyone in Texas observes Central Time! El Paso is in Mountain Time.

While I can by no means promise anything, based on the experience of past years your odds of getting two tickets are very good.

Thanks to everyone I managed to get a ticket and hotel room for BGG CON 2017.

EDIT// Found the badge editor, never mind I just need to pay more attention in future.
