I got 12:42 but a buddy of mine got 12:16.
I suspect many downtown hotels still available for later times like last year.

Woohoo! 12:02 - best time I've ever drawn!
And I got 12:18! My best time EVER in eight years of attending Gen Con. I am excite!
The approximate last time slot over the past three years were 7pm, 9pm and 6pm. This year it's 3:30pm.
I assume they compressed it so people will be done by the time the Super Bowl starts. They surely also have good info on server performance over the past several years.
3:07 PM. Not so great for me, but if COVID concerns are still depressing preregistration, maybe, just maybe, I may still have a shot at a downtown room. Probably not, but a guy can dream.
There are also four new downtown hotels in the housing block this year.
Thanks! And that info is interesting. My husband got a time of 2:08.
I got 2:01 so I better hustle if I don't want dotificus' husband stealing my hotel :)
12:00!! How hard will it be to get a room with 3 beds? I’m thinking 2 queens and a sleeper couch. Was going to rush embassy suites but saw on another thread someone said the VIGS already sold embassy suites out. Any other suggestions. Would like to stay within 3 blocks if possible.
Thanks as always, Alec. You've set our expectations for tomorrow.
One of us got 12:22, but the other four are in a cluster from 2:24 to 2:40.
I was at first thrilled to get 2:00 pm, and then I found out that the times have been compressed. <sigh> Here's hoping I can get something good nonetheless!
I've also noticed that most of the hotels listed are downtown. Why do I have the horrible feeling that they're going to run out of hotel space?
