Just noticed they changed over to 2021 forums and nobody posted yet. So I decided to break it open. Very much looking forward to an in person and hopefully back to somewhat normal Gen Con this year!!!
It would be nice, but seems unlikely.
Happy new year, all!
Hoping for a safe 2022 Con. Sure, I'd love to attend 2021, but we aren't there yet. Stay safe, my fellow nerds, see ya on Zoom/Twitch/Roll20/Etc...
Here's hoping for a safe, in-person Gen Con 2021.
I realize it's still early. But has there been to any rumblings of the state of the con for this year?
You should probably read the "Holiday 2020 Message and 2021 Update" linked off the Gen Con front page, if you haven't already.
The key two-sentence excerpt is:
"Our goal for the new year is to hold Gen Con 2021 as planned, in person in Indianapolis from August 5-8. We’re working towards that objective with health and safety as our top priority. "
But, as they also say there, "a variety of factors need to come together for a physical convention to be feasible", so it is probably too early to say.
Thanks for the info!
For whatever it's worth, Origins just announced they plan to hold their event in-person, just later in the year (Sept. 30 - Oct. 3).
Stay safe, my fellow nerds
We are the nerds, geeks, the unwashed gaming masses. And we will have our Gen Con, in this life or the next. :-)
Hey, who are you calling a nerd, geek.We are the nerds, geeks, the unwashed gaming masses. And we will have our Gen Con, in this life or the next. :-)
Now for role playing sake let's say you ran a Con normally held in Mid June. Maybe you just announced that that the new dates are the end of September and now requires
Requiring Face Masks
Hand Sanitizing Stations
Maybe that would be a sign of things to come.
Thanks for posting, but lets not start any particular conversations under this "First Post" topic.

Please start all other conversations under the appropriate topic header.
Woohoo! What's my prize ;p
I'll take it!!!
I'm just wondering, How the heck can someone game face to face, while Masked AND being at least 6ft away from one another? Can folks even HEAR you??
Then my inner comedian suggested Semaphore, because the idea of playing an RPG one letter at a time by waving flags at each other is hilarious
Locking. Crusader77 is the first post winner officially...and we have digressed from that on this topic...
