That magical time of the year is almost upon us once again. In less than 3 weeks, gamers in large numbers (including an unprecedented amount of the Critical Hits crew, past and present) will be descending upon Indianapolis for GenCon. Like previous years, I expect to find out about the next year’s big releases, play new games, meet awesome people, spend too much money in the dealer’s hall, have trouble finding vegetarian cuisine, and get really drunk while talking game design.
But for those of you without tickets to GenCon, whether because you haven’t bought them but could go or because you can’t go at all, we offer the following multi-part contest. Choose the one that best fits your situation:
I Want A Ticket To Go To GenCon
Post here in comments (or on Facebook or Twitter) how you’ll promote the cause of gaming if you get a ticket to GenCon. We’ll select our two favorite answers and give them each a free full badge to GenCon, provided courtesy of Wizards of the Coast.
Your comment should take the form of: “I want a ticket to go to GenCon because…” and then give your answer. Winners will be selected on July 23rd.
I Can’t Go To GenCon
For those of you who can’t go to GenCon at all, no way, no how, we offer the following consolation. Post here in comments (or on Facebook or Twitter) what you’ll be doing instead of going to GenCon. One winner chosen at random will receive the following PDFs provided courtesy of DriveThruRPG:
- Paths of Power
- Spycraft: Real American H.E.R.O.es
- Dragon Warriors RPG
- Squadron UK Superhero RPG
- Fellowship of the White Star Campaign Book
Your comment should take the form of “I can’t go to GenCon because…” and then give your answer. Winner will be drawn on July 23rd. You must have a DriveThruRPG/RPG Now account (they’re free!) to win.
I Have A Ticket And I’m Going To GenCon
Well, that’s something of a prize in and of itself, isn’t it? But for those of you who will be joining us there, we’ll be running at least one contest while at the convention for those of you who we run into. No need to post to win, but feel free to tell us if you are coming! Exact details to be announced during the convention itself.
Please, only one entry per person into any part of this contest. Entrants may be disqualified at our sole discretion. This contest is not officially endorsed by GenCon LLC in any way.
Hope to see many of you there, and if not, hope you’re doing something fun.
