I'm kind of surprised since they moved the date to later in August this year and some people couldn't attend because their schools had already begun. I almost didn't go because of that. Schools in my area started the week of gencon. I went but I had to leave the rest of the family home this year.my blog - http://1d8.blogspot.com/

This year was my first time going to Gen Con, and I was a little disappointed in the Exhibit Hall vendors selling everything at normal retail price. Meeting Ed Greenwood at his empty booth helped make up for it!

If you want stuff at a discount, your best bet is to go late sunday afternoon. The more stuff they sell, the less stuff they nee to ship home or carry with them. If they have their own truck or panel van, it is one thing. But if they are packing it up and shipping via UPS or something..

I am pleased to see that Gen Con set an attendance record. I hope that the numbers continue to grow if only to counter the naysayers who predict the death of our hobby.

My only real 'advice' to those who are new to Gen Con, or conning in general, is if you see something you have to have on day one BUY IT on day one. Otherwise it will be gone. If you see something you would like to buy, Sunday is the best day for everything else.

Dice Tower has pretty decent video coverage of GenCon, though the focus is more on board games: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZ50etNGiOw]Gen Con 2012 Part 1 - Overview - YouTube[/ame]
