Initially I did not have any plans of attending Gen Con. This also meant that I had nothing booked at all for Gen Con when they notified me about being one of the finalists! In my submission to the Deathmatch, I had stated that I was not attending Gen Con but if I was selected as one of the finalists, I would book everything ASAP, and that’s what I did!
With less than one month before Gen Con, booking a reasonable hotel at the core of Indianapolis was close to impossible. As I was looking around and doing research on the event + place, I learned about the Gen Con housing block (which was by now all sold out + too late for a waiting list). After a day of looking, my girlfriend and I settled on a hotel ~15min away by taxi. Hopefully we won’t miss out on all the action!
Another update on the topic, we ended up buying two tickets for the Gen Con Shuttle Bus service! It is a great new service that runs consistently throughout Gen Con from 7am-3am Thurs, Fri, Sat and 7-8pm on Sunday. Both tickets ended up costing ~$100.
There is also a ~15 hour greyhound bus ride we have purchased from Toronto – Indiana. Lots of time to go over and practice my pitch/get some sleep…!
