Alright, time to find out who's going to be there and what games we're hoping to play.

Myself, I'm looking to get in games of Middle Earth Quest, Railways of the World, Rise of Empires, Snow Tails, Small World, Steam and Tales of the Arabian Nights.

This will be my 25th GenCon in the last 28 years. I'm hoping to meet a bunch of BGG geeks in the open gaming room.

EDIT: Derk has decreed a time and place for the meetup. See this thread:

I'm going with my wife and some friends. But I think this post might have beaten you to the roll call:

That may be, but that one isn't in the Convention Forum, so this it the only "Official Roll Call".

Marcuswoot and I will be there with his son.

We'd love to teach Combat Commander or Close Action to any aspiring wargamers!

I'm going. This'll be year 15 for me, every year since '95. As always, I have no events scheduled or concrete plans. I ust show up and find things to do. I spend a lot of time in the dealer's hall and the auction house. I typically do the Mayfair thing where you demo a bunch of games to get a 1/2 off coupon for their booth. My wife usually does the same, so I'm planning on picking up a couple of Mayfair games: possibly Steam and Tigris & Euphrates. I'll also probably be buying Small World from the Days of Wonder booth and swinging by Z-Man's booth to see what they have going on.

It's our one vacation a year and I'm psyched as hell. It's a few days in the year where I don't have to worry about being a parent or an employee.

I will be there. I am running a big Race For The Galaxy tournament. Even if you don't want to play, stop by and mock me for my crappy posting on BGG... I can take it.

Plan to demo tons of games, laugh at Larpers, and play in the boardgame room till 3:00am or later. Get up at 9:00pm and start again.

Ready to play anything and looking forward to the zombie walk.

I'll be there as well. Looking forward to trying FITS, Middle Earth Quest, hopefully Endeavor (I'm doubting that one), and playing a bunch of games in Ballroom 500.

What's this zombie walk? Similar to the costume parade?

I too follow the path of "No events planned" and it's usually worked out well in the past. Haven't missed a Gen Con since they moved to Milwaukee. If only I could sleep in one of the days. snore

Hundreds of people dress up like zombies (with makeup and everything) then walk the convention and streets of Indianapolis..........acting like zombies.

I will be there with my sister, brother and sister in law. Plan on playing in a bunch of rpgs inclduing a couple Dread games and the 4e Ultimate Dungeon Delve. Hope to pick up the Pegasus expansion for BSG (actually, hope my brother will pick it up since he owns the base game). Auction, dressing up one day, swing dancing, beer drinking and dealer hall are all in the plans. I think this is my 9th overall/straight GenCon.

Thanks! I haven't seen this in the 4 years I've been going to the Con. I've seen Zombies of course, just not all together like this.

If anyone is interested in scheduling a 2 player card driven wargame, let me know (Paths of Glory, Shifting Sands, Triumph of Chaos, etc).

Uhh... looks like Excel.

I will be in attendance as well. I'm going to try out Conflict of Heroes on Thursday. The rest of the con will be filled with RPGs and miniatures games.

I'll be there all 4 days minus Friday morning, when I have to work until noon.

Plans include the RISING zombie LARP, True Dungeon (twice! Woot!), Hickman's Killer Breakfast, and the rest should be mostly open gaming, checking the dealer halls, demoing games, etc.

Since I've not been to a lot of cons, I want to at least try out some of the live gaming stuff to appease the roleplaying gamer in me. But I've left lots of free time to wander around and try out board games at my leisure, lest my roleplayer-self and my boardgamer-self open hostilities upon each other. :D
