With this being our first year attending, I want to go full tourist mode! I checked out the official gear but I don't see a shirt that actually says Gen Con 2019. I absolutely LOVE the board gamer shirt but it doesn't have the year. Will more stuff be added later?
I would think so. There is always a specific shirt for each individual year.
ugh, no year though. why oh why would they do this??? (this dramatic scene brought to you by the university of overacting!)
unless I'm looking at the wrong shirt...
The shirts for 2019 will probably go on sale closer to the Con. That merchandise is the stuff they always have, although they do seem to have the 2019 badge wallet on sale already.
There are more than 6 months until the Con begins, you'll have plenty of time to get your goodies.
I have a shirt from last year with 2018 on it. From 2017, I have the Gen Con 50 shirt, and yeah, it doesn't have the year. Don't know about prior years.
There's been a shirt with the year every year. 2017 was branded as Gen Con 50.

I'm actually hoping for a Shirt that doesn't have a massive dragon on it. I've got the Gen Con 2016, and Gen Con 2018 shirts, but I'd like just a shirt with the Gen Con logo on the front and a little slogan or something on the back. Or maybe some other aspect of gaming. I understand that D&D and Gen Con have a history for obvious reasons, but Gen Con is so much more than just "Dragons".
Well, they used to have shirts with chicks on them which I never bought. I FAR prefer dragons!
It looks like this is going to be the 2019 logo:
It would be awesome if they offered the shirt in something.other.than.black. I have a closet full of black gen con shirts. I offer this suggestion to OWD every year at their booth, to no avail. Oh, and the shirt must have the year on it or I won't bother. I buy it as a souvenir of the year.
It was very cool finding the "50" integrated into the design on the anniversary T.
