A Quick GenCon Indy Report
Submitted by Howard Tayler on August 19, 2009 - 23:52
So this is why thereâ€™s so much hype. An entire ballroom full of people at tables playingÂ RPGA-sanctioned games of D&D. And then two more ballrooms full of people playing boardgames. And yet another full of table-top wargamers with beautifully-painted miniaturesâ€¦ and that was at 9:00pm on Saturday.
I wonâ€™t trouble any of you with a blow-by-blow. Suffice it to say that our corner of the Margaret Weis Productions booth was busy, and we sold hundreds upon hundreds of books. I got to be on panels with some of the legends of game design, and managed not to eat much foot in the process. I got to catch up with old friends, and I finally got to meet Skippy of The Skippy List (he is a real person, yes.)
My first GenCon was any number of things, but I can say for certain what it was not. It was not my LAST GenCon. Indianapolis, I will be back.
