Gen Con is coming to Indianapolis Indiana, and I’M GOING TO GEN CON!!!! Four days of gaming, cosplay, fantastic art & nerdly fun. Attendance usually tops 60,000. (I take deep breaths whenever I think about the crowds. I can do this. It will be fine. I’m fine.)
I’m working the booth for my Local Game Store again for the first time in mumble-mumble years. GAMES PLUS Booth 1841 in the Exhibit Hall. Towards the back, a few rows over from the Art Show.
Big thanks to Games Plus for letting me hang out with them & sell things! Miniatures, modules, boxed games, and a ton of other incredible gaming fun stuff. All that and more. It’s a good time. The whole world goes by the booth.
We’ll even have copies of my book for sale. (this is called burying the lede. Yes, I spelled that correctly. Look it up.) Want a preview of my books? Check out the Books tab here.
Will you be at the original, longest-running gaming convention in the world, August 2 through 5? Stop by booth 1841 and say hello! I promise I won’t hard-sell. I will give you a sticker though. I have free stickers and bookmarks and loads of enthusiasm to share. We can talk dice, and superheroes, and glow in the dark gaming accessories (my personal obsession.)
But seriously. I am so stoked about this. Games Plus has been part of my writing universe for over 3 decades. I gamed there before I wrote a single story. I tested out my first novels by running the plots as tabletop RPGs for friends there. I’ve spent many a fond hour wandering the aisles, coveting fancy dice, discussing the pros & cons of rule systems, and swapping stories about fictional adventures.
And Gen Con was my first convention. It was the only one I attended for years and years. From Parkside through the Milwaukee era, and several years after the Big Move to Indianapolis. Then work & life got in the way, and Gen Con just couldn’t get wedged in between Spouseman’s schedule and mine. <cue inspirational music> UNTIL NOW!
It’s going to be great. I AM SO EXCITED!!!
I may have mentioned that already. ANYway. See you there, if you’re going. If not, expect a report later. It’s what I do. I go places, and then write about them.
What’s that? Why is there a picture of a goat with this post? Oh. Um.
Why not a goat?
