After a long hiatus, I'm returning to GenCon to judge a series of historical (sometimes hysterical) miniatures games. Is anyone at BGG going besides me? If you are, stop by and say hi!

When I first went to GenCon's, they were actually IN Lake Geneva, Wisconsin!

I will be there, along with GAWD and some other friends from Miami, FL.

I'll be bringing Twilight Imperium and we may need 2-3 volunteers to join us. Drop me a geekmail if you want to play.

Hmmm, that could be difficult. soblue I'm arriving Thursday and judging a 4 hour HO armor battle from 4-8. Friday, I'm doing 2 WWI air mini-campaigns, one at 10, the second at 11 am. Then, I'm doing an HO ACW miniatures battle from 2-6pm. Saturday, I'm judging an HO Napoleonics battle at 10am till 2pm. At 4pm, I'll be doing another HO armor battle till 8pm. Sunday, I head home for Chicago as I've got an inservice for school on Monday morning. But, do stop by and say hi!

I'll be there from Thursday afternoon until Sunday. Stayin' at the Crowne Plaza so I don't have to fight for a parking spot downtown.

Previously I spent all my time in the miniatures areas, ignoring the board game halls. But no longer. Since my last visit to GenCon (2007), I've moved almost completely into boardgames.

I'm coming from Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I'll be fondly remembering the days when I could make a day trip to Milwaukee for GenCon. *sigh*

I'll be going and coming from Utah. but the only mini event I'm doing is DDM. Good luck on running events. I use to run the Prussian Kriegsspiel at gencon, but just took to long to get ready for it. Not at the con. it took months to get everything ready. I'll try to drop by your events but not on Friday. I got tickets to the Colts game :-)


Colts game? You lucky stiff! There's wargames with monsters, not miniatures!
The set up for all my games will probably take me 2 or 3 days because I'm trying out some new organizational tweeks. I'm doing 4 HO games specifically to use the terrain 4 times and not to have to lug more around with me! Hope to see you!cool

I agree about the day trip memories!!! They at least could have moved it to Chicago or a suburb of Chicagosoblue

Stop by one of my miniatures games and give me a chance to convert you back to the light








PS You can Download A Nation Divided from the files at The Games of War. It's a free copy of miniatures rules for ACW games that I'll use at GenCon. Try it and let me know your opinion!

Love all the mini's at Gencon - and I'll be there! I'm running Galactic Emperor on Thursday night and am scheduled into a few other events. Mostly, I'll be milling about. I'll be the guy with a wide grin splitting his face.

I'll be there, and I have nothing planned yet, so I'll need plenty of suggestions and insight.

Wish I could be there, but just don't have the funds to go. Man, the Northeast needs more big conventions (or conventions in general). At least starting next year, we'll have PAX East in Boston and I can get to one game con.

Much like the pilgramige to Mecca it can easily be seen as a "once in a lifetime" event.... at least that's what I told myself 4 years and 4 Gencon's ago. whistle

Is the a BGG event/ doinz'/ hodown/ gladhanding?

I will be there!

I just started paining minis (Flames of War) a couple months back so I am really interested to see those games and the hall with the minis in particular.

GENCON still rules!
