Ren and I are thinking about possibly going to Gen Con this year. If we do, we'll probably just get a one day pass for Sunday.

I know our time limit and inability to sign up for anything scheduled is going to limit us. With that in mind, what would any of you that have gone to the Con before recommend we try to do with our single day at the con?

You'll probably want to roam the Exhibit Hall. Even then, you probably won't get the full experience, as a few exhibitors may have torn down their stands on Saturday night. Also, a number of the "hot" titles will be long gone by then.

Yeah, there will be some gaming happening - however, as it's Getaway Day, it'll be a small fraction of what you'll see on other days.

My advice? Plan for a full convention experience in 2013! If you're itching for something sooner, search for a regional convention taking place during the Labor Day weekend.

Hit the Exhibit hall and the board game library.

I'll still be in the exhibit hall, probably in vicinity of the Game Salute Sneak Peeks Booth (2035) we'll be demoing prototypes all weekend. Upcoming titles and games that haven't found publishers yet. I may be silly tired, but I'm in almost until the end of Sunday. Stop by and say hi.

You'll definitely want to hit the exhibit hall...but exhibitors are not allowed to tear down early. We'll be there until 4pm on Sunday, and looking forward to a nice relaxing dinner and a couple of drinks afterward.
