Just a personal curiosity, but I was just wondering if there are stats kept anywhere about the # of attendees vs distance traveled.
I'm more curious, how many people come to gen con that already live in Indianapolis vs Indiana vs midwest vs USA, etc....
I'd also like to know if there are spikes in these numbers at certain distances, specifically when you get to the distance Germany is from Gen Con (my personal experience says many people come from Germany). And I just wanted to know if there are any other distances that have any unusual spikes in attendees.
I would love to see a chart of attendees and home state/country they are from.. just to get an idea of how many foreigners we draw in..
And if we could see it compared to prior years, that would be sweet!
That depends on how you define "foreigner" -- someone who isn't from the Midwest? ;)
Anyone from out of the USA..
In that case, with how many are 'large set', i don't think half the people could climb a wall to get to the con...
*shrugging* I'm from Canada. Land of the quinzhee. We'll just tunnel. :)
(Nobody ever thinks about DOWN when they're planning defensive features....)
Once met a guy from the Navy that came all the way from an radar station in the India Ocean, it was his leave and he was heading back after Gen Con with gaming supplies.
Was so interested, I posted a poll on the Face Book page :)
