Just one question. What's Gamehole Con? In other words, thanks for this thread.
I guess I'll start by reading their website.

My GenCon experience started very much in the same manner.


Lol. For starters, GHC is way, way smaller than GenCon. The badges and hotels cost less. And there’s free parking in the lot surrounding the convention center. That about covers it. :laugh:


It is also generally colder than GenCon. You may want to pack a coat

And despite packing and wearing said coat, do not skip the ice cream vendor in the front hall. It's homemade and definitely a do not miss.

Hear hear!
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?
Please post TDb corrections/suggestions in this thread .
If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously

One of the cool things of GHC is that any “guests” need to play 2 games with patrons. So games will be run by designers or developers of games. You might run into folks walking around that may or may not be published and considered famous by someone at the con. It’s chill though and the games are fun and the people are genuine.

I have no idea what any of these people are talking about. GHC is just a TD con right? I mean that is all I have ever done there. Show up play TD a bunch, go home. What more do you need to know?



This is 100% meant as a joke, in case it wasn't obvious.
You either discover a star or you don't. You arrogant punk.

I know there are no scheduled events but has anyone seen people playing Mtg there? Possible tournaments?

This will be my first physical TD since reaching 6th level. How do I prove my level to get the extra treasure token? Should I be logged into my account via my phone?

The Medallion of nobility you got for reaching 5th level is generally used for this.

Note that you can't pick this up in person, it has to be ordered through the website.

It can be a little confusing—the Medallion of Nobility is the reward for reaching 5th level, not 6th. But because there is no tangible reward for reaching 6th level, the Medallion is what people use to prove 6th level. When you hit 7th level, you can use the TD badge holder to prove being level 6+.

To explain a bit more about “ordering” the Medallion or any other XP reward, log in to the website, got to the store, and then scroll down. Any XP reward item you are qualified for will appear as an option at the bottom. You can click on it and put it in your cart like any other order. The item is free, but shipping is still $5. Some people will combine getting their XP reward item with a token order or a transmute shipment to only pay one shipping charge. (Others don’t want to wait. You do you.) If multiple members of your household have qualified for an XP reward, each person needs to order the item from their own account. But if you include notes telling TD that the rewards can be shipped together, they might refund one of the shipping charges. (YMMV, I don’t speak for TD, other exclusions may apply, etc.)

Thanks for the replies. We actually got our Medallions when we hit 5th level by doing similar to what you described. We contacted TD and they sent it with a VTD shipment, saving the extra shipping. I just assumed the Medallion was cosmetic/collectable only. I am very glad I asked because I would not have thought to have included it otherwise.

Great. You should be all set. I keep my Medallion in my token build pages solely to prove 6th level status in the coaching room in case it comes up. (My 7th-level badgeholder and 8th-level pin should answer any questions, but I have seen some newer coaches ask for the Medallion even when a player was wearing the badgeholder.)
