Hi,

I'm coming to BGG Con this year. My dad is going to come to town on Saturday, and we're going to the Cowboys game Sunday. He is absolutely, positively NOT a gamer of any kind. If he wants to poke around the con and get a glimpse of his oldest son's newest obsession, is that allowed? Can he buy a one day visitor's pass or something? I'll literally pledge my life that he won't try to play any games.

Just thought I'd check.

Thanks,

Chris

No such thing as a day pass or visitor pass.

Although we don't have day passes or visitor passes, showing a family member around to see the magic that is the con and the hobby is fine.

We just ask that you be wearing your badge and stay with him as you show off him around, and that (as you seem very aware of) he doesn't use up any con resources that others have paid to have access to.

Awesome, thanks! He'll be psyched. And under no circumstances would he even consider playing a game.

Thanks again,

Chris

Do not feed the visitors or tap on the glass.

As long as you keep your hands away from his mouth while he's eating, everything will be just fine.

Don't let him breathe the air I want to breathe

I expect he'll be so awestruck by the whole affair that, after an initial gasp, he'll remain breathless throughout.

Damn you, how'd you get our family reunion picture?!? Can you guess which one is me, which one is dad and which one is mom?
