So: DON'T post your actual badge number here. 

BUt, I was interested in how high the numbers (aka ID #) have gotten.  I got in right when they did the changeover several years ago, so my # is in the mid- 200s.

I think it's nice that they your number stays with you from year to year....

I'm in the low 500s; and this is only my 10th Gen Con. Got in right after the changeover as well.

Last year there were about 60k attendees, so I'm guessing that the highest number is about 60,000.
Assuming that there aren't duplicates.

No, there aren't duplicates, and anyone who has ever gotten a badge still has their number - they don't reuse them.  So my number is 16X,XXX.  My husband's is 16X,XXY (because his is one higher than mine).  :)

Easiest way is to look up at the top of this page next to your userID.  there should be a number.  That's your badge number.

I think badges were somewhere in the 200k range. Hopefully someone who registered for the first time yesterday will chime in.

Registered my wife for her first Gen Con yesterday within 5 minutes of Open Registration.  Her number is in upper portion of 200K-300K range.  Mine is almost 100,000 lower (I started attending Gen Con again in 2015) - so it's added about 50,000 unique badges or so each of the past two years.

Would anticipate this year's highest number will be somewhere in the 320XXX - 350XXX range.

My badge number is "2,XXX BC".  GRIN. 

I'm one of the original bricks that built Gencon.

I'm in the 20k spectrum, and I've been coming since 2004 so not that long over the whole history of the con.

I was being somewhat elitist a few years ago about my 3 digit badge number when a friend looked over and said yeah and? -- his number was in the 2 digits. :D He GM's for Wizards of the Coast. Guess they got in early!

You aren't a REAL GenConner unless your badge is under 10k.  Just sayin'
