I propose that the Gen Con Rear Guard meet at one of the connected hotels and order a pizza or just have everyone fend for themselves and have a meet/greet/eat/game session starting anytime after about 4/5 pm...
I'd be up for joining the Rear Guard! We're not leaving 'til Monday.
I am staying downtown (Courtyard by Marriott), anyone else with a Downtown hotel this year?
I'm staying by the airport this year. Looking forward to meeting everyone on Sunday.
Last year, we met and talked over pizza. This year, I'd like to play/run some after-con games. What sorts of games would everyone be interested in (i.e. roleplaying, board, card...)?
Oops, I thought this thread was about a militant faction of the "Cosplay is not Consent" movement. sorry
I'm at some sort of Hilton on Monument Circle. I should be available for this.
Shoot not going to make it this year (schedule won't allow for it this year). This was a nice casual meetup after the con. Cool bunch of guys. Maybe next year.
Sorry for stumbling in on this, but I work at the JW... would the Rear Guard be interested in using a meeting room there if I could secure it? Seems like a pretty cool meet-up.
That sounds good to me! Thanks for the offer! Not sure how many we will have (last year, I think we had 10) but any space would be much appreciated!
For board games, I'll bring Zombies and Lords of Waterdeep.
I wouldn't mind RPGs. I'm playing D&D, Firefly, 7th Sea (2nd Edition), and Numenera while I am there. I actually don't have any board games scheduled this year. I am planning on picking up a few if I spot them. So I may just bring Sheriff of Nottingham base set or something like "Aye! Dark Overlord" which will be a lot of fun with a large group.
Gen Con Wish List:
- New Firefly board game from Gale Force Nine (Brigands and Browncoats)
- Top Secret: New World Order (Though I doubt that it will be ready in time. Still in Kickstarter)
- Western The Roleplaying Game (English version finally coming out!)
- Sheriff of Nottingham Expansion
- A copy of Talisman (4th edition) and all the expansion (from the Auction unless I find someone giving it away...)
But I am really up for anything. Recently, I have been introduces to Burgle Brothers, Tokaido, Blood Rage, Bloodborne, and several others and have enjoyed them all.
OK! I've got a reservation for a 3rd floor Meeting Room starting at 3:30... I just need to know approximately how many people to reserve for, and we'll have the room number.
For those just looking at this thread, we established the Gen Con Rear Guard last year. It is an informal get together for those who are staying the final Sunday of Gen Con to hang out, share Con stories, perhaps eat and do some gaming. It is open to any who want to show up. Stay as long as you like, leave when you like.
