This year is going to be touch and go for obvious reasons. But if TD if a con happens, the border is open, and TD is there, I will both attend and volunteer.

Going to? Unlikely given that tabletop game cons are far worse than sporting events in terms of people interacting with each other over a much longer span of time, so I see them being the last sort of event that will be allowed to happen, certainly not any earlier than sporting events with fans in the stands. I had hope for a while just because unique circumstances are so unpredictable in terms of how things shake out, but as weeks go by where sports can't figure out what it looks like to have attendees, hope dissipated.

Given the challenges with sports even playing, nevermind attendees, it's incredibly hard to envision what conferences, whether gaming or business or whatever, would look like unless the attendees were fairly exclusive. Liability is such an issue in the US, but, then, even ignoring lawsuits, what's the quarantine plan in the middle of a convention when 10% of the people start having symptoms? That just keeps coming up as a crazy challenge until there's some resistance to catching SARS2.

I wonder if conventions overseas are more likely in 2020, though I'd imagine that international travel for Americans is going to be as awful as it is for anyone else for the rest of the year.

I won't be going to Gen Con this year.

What about virtual GenCon?

Well, my take was mostly more along the lines of "I want to go to x TD cons this year" rather than "I want to go to these specific cons this year", so that has been in flux for a while. Now that we've lost a couple TD cons, it's looking like I might end up trying to make it out to PAX West as well as Origins and Gamehole. We'll see what happens with them.

We're in the same boat (I know you (Azzy) are in know on our plans). I think the general rule for the rest of the year for me is "If TD is there, I'm going to really try to be there. If it is absolutely foolish, which I doubt TD will be, then I won't put myself or others at extra risk". Even if I do go, it will be a reduced and hyper careful con experience, likely to branch far less away from TD.

I have a sneaking suspicion that PAX west will be next on the chopping block for TD cons. I would be surprised if Labor Day weekend things would be open, particularly in Washington state.

I was thinking about Origins, GHC, or both. I'm likely to hit up both, or at least make the attempt.

I'm still keeping an open mind on Origins, and holding onto the hotel rooms for that. Hopefully it is able to be held and circumstances make it safe to go. I'm sorry to see GENCON cancelled, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have gone even if it had been held.

We were really struggling with the GenCon decision (wanting to go and support TD vs the risk).

I’m going to host a local day of gaming in their honour that weekend.
