True Dungeon NOT at GenCon?!? 5 months 1 day ago #14

It was probably a mistake by GenCon not to require proof of vaccination when other larger events are requiring it. That likely played into some companies bailing.

TD's decision doesn't sound like it was about vaccination and more likely something personal (hopefully not a health issue or something like that.)

Asmodee bailing was really big. No Fantasy Flight, etc.. Rio Grande bailed. Ultra Pro bailed. Paizo bailed. At this point, if Baldman, Nascrag, or You Too Can Cthulhu bail, I can't imagine going. Right now, those three are planning to go.

It's much more likely I'll skip GenCon and just do GHC. With as many companies skipping GenCon, it actually makes going to Origins more possible for me.

My take on it is that I still have a month (to roll over badges) or two (for badge refunds and only a $25 hotel fee) to let recent events settle out.

That is a luxury I have as an attendee that companies that attend do not have.
They have to plan and start spending precious money now to get things ready for September.

I have to admit, True Dungeon not going stung me.

I love Gen Con.
At minimum, I'll meet up with some friends there (fully vaccinated), and we'll play games in our hotel room.
At best, I'll make new friends that will last a lifetime.

And I have until the end of July to make a call on whether I think going is safe or not.

I bought a badge today, felt weird as this may be the 1st year i've not had a GM badge. I've volunteered every year since 2013.

I want to and will go to Indy one way or the other this year to see some friends. I got the badge figuring i've got til end of July to refund for credit or not. That's nearly 2 months and a lot can change for better or for worse.

I really hope TD does support some sort of token party/transmute either officially as part of Gen Con space or just in Indy that weekend. I'd be glad (as other former/current vols have offered as well) to help out for a bit to make it happen.
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 decided to go still. I originally went to GC for just board gaming so I'm sure I'll still have some fun doing that. If it's more casual/relaxed than usual that's not a bad thing. I just hope there's enough scheduled events.

A TD player meetup/trading event would be awesome.

We plan on being there...hopefully doing some escape rooms, crafting stuff, random games we never play, and seeing a lot of you folks. We do have suite rooms at homewood, so as long as we don't go too crazy, I'd be happy to host some small groups and gaming.

The Escape Room Indianapolis is outstanding. The Russian room has been rotated out after many year (it was the hardest single escape room I ever attempted) and a new one named "Dark Wyvern Mining" has taken its place with what appears to be a similar difficulty level (likely less than 3% success rate.) It's worth checking out.

For easier (though, still challenging) rooms, I recommend the Jail Break and Contagion.

As for the main thread, I agree with Lord of Mistakes. Get the badge and hotel now and make a decision in a couple months as to whether to go or not. It will cost an extra $25-$50 to have the luxury of deciding later.

I agree GC made a mistake not deciding earlier on requiring vaccines for attendees. I think these companies are also making a mistake in not going, but I imagine it is a financial decision for them, with concerns about a reduced number of attendees.

Unfortunately GHC is not an option for me. :(

I've decided to go, as well. I already had the badge and a room reserved; the friends that normally join me can't make it, but I've invited another friend that hasn't come for 4-5 years.

I'll be planning some things for the Team Synergy folks (and other TD friends), more info to come.

We could take over sunking as well and chow down on nachos and beer.
