As you noticed, this year at BGG.CON we had an additional level of help onsite. An elite squad of incredible volunteers sacrificed sleep, sanity, and game time to make sure that you all had the best convention experience possible. We asked quite a bit of them, and they went beyond expectations...oftentimes asking what else they could do to help. Without the folks in white jerseys, BGG.CON 2012 would've been impossible.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the few, the proud, the exhausted...the BGG.CON 2012 Team Geek!

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

You guys were amazing!

I brought my cousin (who is new to the hobby) to this Con, and hyped it up big.

All he kept talking about was how astoundingly nice and helpful everyone was.

You guys made good on my promises and converted a hobbyist to boot. He is already planning on being back next year.

My favorite part was where, my cousin, who was totally overwhelmed by the sheer volume of possibilities in our community, walked up to a prize table after Spiel-a-thon with a deer in the headlights look of 'What do I take from here?' and Aldie (who probably had a thousand things to do) saw him, and stepped forward with "Are you new to the hobby?" and some advice.

That's what I love about our hobby. Damn few jerks, and a central nervous system wired to be helpful.

I was worried that the 75% increase in con attendees would be a problem with the organizing staff staying roughly the same size. Obviously the solution was these awesome, committed volunteers. That contribution did not go unnoticed. You guys rocked.

Actually pretty much everyone who volunteered for helping out with anything, such as the thankless task of operating library computers, was friendly and helpful.

I'm glad to be a part of the con community.

Having a bunch of people wandering around ready and willing to teach games was definitely a huge plus (both the dedicated volunteers and the helpful random folks). A friend and I have been to a total of 2 conventions, and the volunteers are absolutely something that makes BGG CON look better than Origins.

My favorite part of the hobby is the people and spending time together. It was a pleasure (and a ton of fun).

Everyone on TeamGeek was awesome to be with during the event.

I too must heap praise on these good folk. I know how much work this putting-on-a-con thing is, and with all the headaches of size increase, new hotel, etc., you kept everything rolling, and kept the machinery practically invisible. All we had to do was jump in the sandbox and start playing!
