I agree the ICC probably has no jurisdiction over the hotels, but GenCon may.

But if they take your badge and you can't sort it out until Monday, being right won't be very satisfying.


In past years some GenCon events have been held in connected hotels. There were RPG rooms in the JW the last time I stayed there, for example.

You try to get them to play the game, but all they want to do is play the rules. - Ardak Kumerian

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend - Faramir

For a few hundred, neither am I. For $2, packing up, going over, coming back and unpacking - since I never seem to have someone around to watch my stuff - I kind of am :)

if I am there , I will watch your stuff...


And I'd trust you and a dozen others I could name, but won't because I'd leave out one or six and they'd being going "HEY!" :) In the past, it just hasn't worked out that way.


You can leave your tokens with me. You can trust me *evil laugh*

"Needs to be wearing a badge" is a function of GenCon, which includes any event related to GenCon, no matter where it takes place. "Can't sell in the halls" is a function of ICC and, potentially, official GenCon space - so only the actual GenCon gaming rooms but not, for example, the Starbucks in the JW.

However, remember that hotels would also take a dim view of someone setting up a table and making sales. Which is different than anything we'd be doing, but why you don't see the aforementioned Magic card vendors. Making a couple sale-trades in a hotel lobby is no big deal.

They're pretty clear distinctions.

People could sell *ahem* trade their tokens for these Silver pieces, and the Silver could always be used at the TD desk for full value towards the purchase of any TD merchandise or tokens.

Oh wait - These already exist!
I'm kinda sad they aren't available for purchase at the TD merchandise desk any more :(

As a note: Anyone who wants to give me TD Silver Pieces instead of cash for any trade we're doing, I am totally cool with that!


What's a TD Silver Piece? Can someone who has one post a picture?

Just a suggestion at this point as exchanging currency through official channel in theory.

But I'm pretty sure that Druegar will come up with something.

This was taken with a crappy camera, but hopefully it conveys the idea.

I don't know. I think I won that on an eBay auction years ago.

How much was it last year? Wasn't it $40? A jump of $8 seems extreme. Do we get an extra treasure bag? ;)
