So it looks like this thing is as (or more) popular than ever! We're about 80% sold out, and current guesses is it could be by the end of the week. Register now!

If you don't have a confirmation email that says "BGG.CON 2011 Registration Confirmation" at the top of it, you're not registered! If you think you should be - contact me. These emails are sent out automatically once payment is confirmed. For PayPal that should be just about immediate (except eChecks which can take a few days). For those sending in checks remember that:

Quote:
"Your registration is not complete until payment is received.
Payment must be received within 7 days of registration."


On booking hotel rooms, we are getting our block updated several times throughout the day. Our contact works a regular 9-5 M-F but is very good about getting more rooms added when we run out. If you don't get the reservation you want, try again later in the day or the next day. We haven't sold out the hotel yet, but at this rate who knows when it will happen, so please make your reservations now. On the other hand, if you've secured a roommate and don't need your room anymore, please call and cancel the reservation as soon as can so it can be released to someone else.

The sooner BGG.CON sells out, the sooner this delicious temptation will be snatched away from my constantly shrinking reservoir of willpower.

Please register now and save me $1000 for hotel, airfare, and expenses!

qft. Maybe if it becomes popular enough, they'll be able to do a BGG.con "east" (preferably within an hour or two of DC) so I won't have to buy a plane ticket to go. :-)

The convention was locked into a contract at the current space for several years, but starting in 2012 we'll be at a much larger venue.

This was one of the conventions I wanted to hit this year. Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend as it is right near the end of the first semester of school.

I was told BGG.CON was more game-playing centric.

If I was more interested in purchasing games (not readily available in the US), would BGG.CON fit the bill? Or should I stick with Essen?

Many of Essen's hottest releases will be available for purchase at BGG.CON, and just about all of them are available to play so you can try before you buy.

I would amend that to say that while many of Essen's hottest releases will indeed be available for play at BGG.CON, they may be available for purchase. I only managed to get Sid Meier's Civilization at BGG. The other games I wanted (that vendors offered to attempt to bring over) did not make it. Two of them are still not in my possession and I paid inflated prices on one of the ones that I did get later.

So to this:

If your primary purpose is to acquire the games and the cost of travel is not a barrier, Essen is a far better fit. In addition to new games, you can also get older games that did not receive distribution in the US. And of both new and old, you will find far more variety for sale at Essen.

Don't worry, Mike. I'm registered. And if it turns out that I can't attend, you will have the delicious option of buying my badge from me. I'll be sure to e-mail you first.

Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you have lost sight of your inner purpose. Your state of consciousness is primary. All else is secondary.

Wow! I trust you are planning carefully how fast you will expand the avavailable spots in future years. Demand seems high and inelastic. If you doubled capacity it might still sell out. And more people would plan to come the following year.

It is so nice of you to bring lots of hot new games back from Essen and set them up for me to play 30 minutes from my home. I should put BGGcon on my list of considerations if I ever think of moving.

I'm pretty sure they should do a BGG.CON "west" before they do a BGG.CON "east". I hear San Diego is lovely, any time of year.....
