GenCon 2015: T-Minus 1...

Greetings, boys and girls of all ages! Unable to actually make it to GenCon 2015 in the flesh, I've decided to post a blog series this week dedicated to everything GenCon related! GenCon... The Best Four Days in Gaming!

My first GenCon was this time last year, and it totally blew me away! I'd been to other, relatively smaller gaming conventions over the preceding years (most notably Privateer Press's Lock & Load Gamefest), but nothing-NOTHING-would be able to prepare me for the sheer awesomeness of what lay ahead in Indianapolis! This year (and despite the governor's idiotic passage of a certain bill...), I was more stoked then ever to be able to participate, but due to monetary constraints, was forced to bow out at the last minute. Boo. Hiss.

Nevertheless, a number of our Santa Barbara Wargaming members are going to be in attendance (one of them even, Barakiel, as a working giving demos for Corvus Belli at the Infinity tables... go and say hi!), and they've agreed to keep me updated with pictures, spoilers, commentary... and maybe even the odd video to be able to share with ya'll! So, without further ado... let the games begin!

Here, to whet your lovely appetites, are a collection of the set-ups of a number of the systems we play here at SBWG, and the wonderful companies which create these worlds! Enjoy!

Privateer Press, always a fan-favorite in the initial mad-dash to con exclusives!
