need advice if we should go to gen con 6 Years, 4 Months ago  
green knight and i am thinking about a trip to gen con this year. we always wanted to go and this year the dollar is so cheap for us europeans
that it would be stupid no to go. but shortly before booking the flights we heard of the financial state and that even wotc would not be there.
now we sit here with our nice plan and are not shure if we should go or wait another year? whats your opinion?

Unless WotC is the only company you are interested in, I'd say take the chance and roll the dice! Even if WotC doesn't show up (which I would find to be incredibly on their part since they're releasing 4e this year), there will still be plenty to do at GenCon. Come and enjoy the city of Indianapolis!

As stated in another post, I won't be making it to GenCon. But, if you can go, then GO!!! The dealer's room is larger than most entire conventions. There's more geeks, weirdos, and freaks under one roof than you'll ever see (I know - I was one last year!).

And best of all, you can hang out at the Dwarven Forge booth and see where your money has been going all this time! Believe me, if I could swing it this year, I'd be there with bells on!

WHY would WoTC NOT go to the biggest gaming convention in the USA when they are unvieling the newest edition of the largest RPG in the world 1 month prior??????

That just makes no sense to me....

They are registered that they are going. WOTC that is. Here is a link of the vendors so far scheduled to go.

www.gencon.com/2007/indy/exhibitors/exhibitors.aspx

My bad that is last years list on closer inspection. Yet they are such a big part of it I can not see them NOT going.

The chapter 11 is only to cover their Star Wars Conventions they were getting sued for as far as I know. Not so much because they were running in the hole but because they wouldn't of been able to pay G Lucus his money when he won the suit.

ALL the big companies seem to get away with not paying bills by doing this. Well US companies anyways. :)

SO I have talked to one of my friends who works with teh WOTC distributor. He mentioned that only he believes only the Star Wars WOTC stuff will not be there although he is not completly sure. That was teh rumor he heard.

Thanks for the responses, fellow gamers.

If its's only some of Wotc Staff its no problem. We thought
that maybe gencon would shrink cause of these chapter 11.
Think we will then take the chance and drop by.

Maybe fiddy or someone would be so kind to show us the nice places in Indy.

I'm looking forward to meet some of you personally.

I would not worry about Gen Con being any less awesome....There are so many interesting things to see there, mostly from the smaller unknown companies and booths, and from GM's who bring massive Terrain Set-ups of all kinds.....There are kool costumes, True Dungeon, and the True Dungeon Tavern, movies, special events, and hordes of Gamers!

Dwarven Forge will be there as usual.

(It's your chance to save on shipping costs eh?)

Camoudragon, Green Knight

I'm envious of you. I'm thinking about going to GenCon one year as well - but somehow haven't got the push yet to really say - YES - I will go. Yes there is family etc. - but to be honest - this shouldn't stop you.

So one day ...

Until then - are you at Spiel in Essen - at least this is a place I visit for 20+ years and only missed it once.
