I’ll be providing "live news coverage" again this year. I'll try to post updates here, but you can also follow this topic in the Fans of Gen Con Facebook group for more frequent updates.

My methodology is to search for rooms Thursday through Sunday for 1 person and then 4 people to determine if single or double rooms remain. Please note that it may be different for longer stays, and that a double at some hotels could mean a pull out coach. And rooms can become available again if people drop reservation attempts or change hotels.

Current list before the portal opens at noon.

I got a room for 3 people at The Westin just now. Not sure if it will be a queen bed plus a couch or what...

EDIT: Oh, I just saw that the "room type assigned" is Standard King Room. So sounds like a queen/king and a couch.

Well it's 2:53. So let's figure approximately 2:50 hours in is when they were gone. Better than prior years. Although I still have slim hopes with a 5:39 pm time.

Not surprised. My lottery time is in 3 minutes.

The web site freaked out on me when my time came up in the lottery. It kept reloading the web page over and over for more than a minute before it finally let me have the button to click to get in. I was afraid it wouldn't let me in at all, so I was opening another browser before the original one finally worked. Just wanted to warn people that it's flaky, so don't panic, and give it a minute.
