We'll have more details soon on how we're going to encourage players to coordinate and connect in the open gaming space at the convention.

My folks took me to Gen Con at UW Parkside, back in 1983. Back then I was a shy kid who had no idea that so many different games existed. I remember people just setting up in the hallways and scribbling down on a piece of notebook paper about how many players they were looking for.
It was one of my best experiences ever. Was just so nice how everyone was so welcoming and willing to share in their love for their hobby.
It saddens me to hear that this is how things will have to be for this year, as I was really looking forward to hosting a few small events to run a game I've been working on for the last few years.
With the open gaming area, will there be any reliable way of advertising or promoting a pseudo-event for this area? A white board where people can write what they're running at a specific table, or something like that? Or is my best bet to link up with another GMing group?
