    Yeah, I long ago learned that having a mittful of generic tickets and flying standby can be the answer there, as so many people snap up event tickets during registration and then no-show on the day.

    I had one bad experience with Generic Tickets (not being able to find anything to do with them the first year I bought them), that I just never considered buying them again. Maybe it's worth looking into?

    If Sunday afternoon rolls around and you've still got some generics you can refund them at Will-Call for system credit (or at least you could the last time I was there) which works kind of like a down payment on next year's badge.

    When I ran last year I has at least one no show per game. And if you are open to try new things.. there were in the room I was at least one of the three groups with at least 1-3 open spots. And as said.. all Generics can be rolled into credit by Sunday.
