My group likes to bring a bunch of our own games and play on Wed night. But we always struggle to find space with an open table. I know the "cafeteria" area in the convention center is decent, but sometimes difficult to find space. Any ideas?
Help me Obi Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.
If you can't find space in the hotels, maybe try The Stink? I was able to get in random games at that last year. If that's not available, check to see if the cellar at Union Station is open. They've had Drunken D&D down there in years past. Not sure if they still do that or not, but it's a pretty cool little pub with tables/booths and a dungeon/tavern vibe.
If you don't mind a bit of a walk and the weather is nice, there are two new park areas at Washington/Alabama that have tables. The one on the Northeast corner of that intersection has a great big table, kind of tucked away in a grassy area.
The basement bar probably won't be open at the Union Station (it hasn't been on Wednesday in years past), but ask at the HQ desk in the lobby and we'll probably be able to find you a table.
Open Gaming?!... OPEN GAMING?! What do you think this is? Origins?
JW Marriot Grand Ball room
otherwise Lucas Oil Stadium
Nothing happening Wed night at Lucas, its closed.
If you game there the rest of the time you will need to buy Library event tickets
The Hyatt and Marriott also have lots of open gaming tables and usually have a lot of folks playing.
You really can't go wrong with the open gaming at any of the local hotels.
If you just need space and atmosphere, the new 16-bit bar that opened up this month has excellent table space
Union station (yes, near The Stink) has several open rooms/tables. Ask the GenCon folks at the desk to find out where the open tables are and they'll direct you.
Thank you my dear forumites. We used the tables at Union Station. It was a wonderful spot!
See yall all next year!
