I'll still enjoy Gen Con, but I don't think I'll be able to take the time off for GameHoleCon.

I'll miss seeing TD, but I'm sure I'll enjoy Gen Con still.


There is a federal regulation that airlines must offer full refunds for cancellations within 24 hours (assuming your flight is within the US). You should be able to get one if you act soon.

Same for me.


Maybe TDers still going to GC could gather (safely) for a meal or a game.


Well... Sounds like Hall K might have plenty of unused space to meet in...

Try to get a refund if this changes your plans.

I'll be at GHC if you'd like to send me your consumables. I'd be happy to pass them out.


I'll take you up on that, thanks, It would likely be a small flat-rate box.

I was going to go to GenCon but with TD not there and other game companies doing GC online, I will do GC online. I hope there will be more Virtual TD, I do enjoy it.
Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun

Will these 2 dungeon be offered at future cons or are they Effectively 2021 gamehole exclusives?

I've attended it req from almost the start. It's much smaller and way... way more relaxed in atmosphere than Gencon. Think Gencon back in Milwaukee in the heyday then.

TD at Gamehole hasn't been a massive sell out yet, our last run couldn't muster a full group for it. This year may be different.

Cost is also about 60% of what Gencon is. For everything!

From what I'm picking up from other groups bowing out, it sounds like the restrictions rules are making it near impossible to host events. I'll see about sharing a list of out events/groups, it's long, and looks like this year may be worth a skip overall.

I've decided my attitude is: When life gives you lemons, make token purchases with the hotel $ saved ....

I realize the sting of this announcement is still fresh and painful. That's normal. It's going to take some time for this to sink in and for all of us to adjust.

I can't give you details on why this decision was made, but I can say:
  • This decision was not made lightly. It was not made on a whim. We would like to be at Gen Con, but because reasons, we won't be there this year.
  • You may think you know why we made this choice, but I assure you, you do not. I know better than to advise y'all to stop speculating; that would be a pointless suggestion. It's human nature to do so. I only ask that you please, maybe try to refrain from spreading hearsay.
  • All of us here at TDHQ still love Gen Con. We love the people. We love the gaming. We love the camaraderie. And we are VERY much looking forward to being there in 2022!

Definitely sad and disappointed about this, but I am sure that people don't think this was an easy or whimsical decision I(well, I hope they don't). I figure I can't speculate on any reasons because I don't know the hundreds (thousands?) of factors involved for TD and GC and the ICC and so on.

This means it will be four years between TDs for me. :( VTD is awesome, but it's not the same.
