As of right now, we are planning on attending several Indiana based conventions this year. On the books so far it InCONjunction 2018 at the beginning of July, possibly IndyPOPCON, and of course Gencon Indy. We will post dates before the shows if we are going to be able to make it. It is some ways away, so we need to make sure that those dates are available for all our hosts and DJ's. As everything gets closer we will be able to say for definite. All of them are good shows, and something we love to attend, so even if we can't make it you should go. We would love to see you there.
In case you haven't been listening to the radio arm of Geek Public Radio, or if you have been living under a rock for the past 6 months, there has been some shows that have appeared on the station without much fanfare. We have talked about them in passing on the facebook page, but nothing really in depth. Well, now that they have gotten settled and everything seems to be going good it is time we let everyone know what's up.
Well for GenCon50, we decided to do something that we haven’t done for many years, and that was to actually go for fun and not get press passes. I do have to say that, without the need to see what is there and setup/do interviews, I didn’t see anything near the whole con. Not just that, but I didn’t even get to see all the vendors in the hall.
So you may ask, what was it that you did do? We walked (of course) and played games (like the battlepods), went to the arcade room, hung out in various places in the vendor hall, and ate some really good food. For the most part though, honestly, there isn’t a lot that I remember.
With the Release of Star Trek Adventures and Demos of Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, Modiphius Entertainment Announces Plans for Gen Con 50
LONDON, ENGLAND (August 10, 2017): Modiphius Entertainment, award-winning publisher of the Star Trek Adventures, Achtung!
