Last year our podcast fulfilled an early mission to create several episodes to serve as a survival guide for Gen Con. We're posting the series in full for any new or returning guests that feel a bit overwhelmed at all of the options and choices.

Note: these episodes were made for 2018's calendar year. Which means our dates mentioned in the episodes are now wrong, but all the tips and how to information is still good!

You can find it on our hostiTunesStitcherSpotify, and other's I'm sure.

Some of the areas we discuss:
Gen Con prep notes: 
buy a badge sooner than later 
have a credit card with an expiration date AFTER the show 
travel to and from the convention 
parking at hotels even downtown and it can add up 
travel from airport - shuttle and bus 
uber and lyft
