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!


I hope everyone is ok. We’ll be ok without TD at GenCon .
What do we want? Evidence based science! When do we want it? After peer review!

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!


Agreed. My crew started doing GHC when it was added and have adopted it as our convention of choice for the reasons stated.

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.


I agree. VTD is nice but getting back in person will be so great.

Come join us at Game Hole Con. Should be a great gathering this year.

Can’t travel to two cons in the fall. Already going to be calling in to work for GC.

Retirement not too far off, though!

Many airlines are being very flexible regarding cancellations right now.

I wonder if TD would be willing & able to do transmutes at GC out of a hotel room (they've done it at Who's Yer Con before). I'd even volunteer to work a shift or 2.

I'd volunteer for this is as well. Being local would mean I wouldn't need a room as well.

That'd be a good enough reason to get me to come out to Indy for a day or two. Love to get transmutes done, meet a few folks and not have full stress/energy of a con.
We're all the kind of people who enjoy the game on a "meta" level. We like talking about the game year-round. We buy tokens. We enjoy crafting. We get together during the off-season if we can. We are a very skewed demographic that way. -Raven

I'm still on the fence about going. With TD not being there, so much uncertainty with the exhibit hall, etc. it just won't be the same this year.

TD will not be at Gen Con 2021 5 months 2 days ago #35

It could be a blessing in disguise for my little game company with BIG ideas and as a result I am going to start promoting an event we have planned for Gen Con that may appeal to many True Dungeon fans...

A tabletop RPG game with a TD feel through a 3D miniature dungeon in 1 hour slots of 4 player teams. You accumulate Dungeon Points as you go along to be used to exchange for real loot at the Gooey Cube vendor booth? If you've watched our gameshow streams you will see that 3D dungeon setup. We are bringing it to Gen Con and would be willing to open up more event slots.

You can see an example of the game and 3D dungeon here:



Would love to see you there! If you have questions please let me know.
