Gen Con Preparations

This latest episode sees us heading back to Gen Con. Well, we don’t actually go there, as it’s around five months away and it would be silly and expensive of us to do so at the moment, especially as we have a nice comfortable garden shed to work from.

We’re there in spirit, though.

This is the follow-up we promised way back in Episode 9, where we help you navigate the complexities and pitfalls of attending the USA’s largest gaming convention, as well as offering advice on how to make the best of your time and navigate the non-Euclidian corners of the online booking system.

The discussion takes the form of Scott asking Paul and Matt lots of questions, as it looks like he may actually make it this year. With any luck he asked the questions you would have, especially if these included “Why? Why? Oh dear God, why?” followed by despairing sobs. This discussion also revealed that the peak time for booking accommodation has passed and that this episode really should have gone out a couple of months ago. The details may still be of use, especially if you’re more organised that we are, or if you have the presence of mind to tuck the MP3 somewhere warm until January 2015.

We discuss new releases in Lovecraftian gaming, the cool games that Matt and Paul got to run and play, the wonderful steak restaurants in the area and exactly how much Scott hates the other two.
