Gen Con 2006 Schedule

I’m gearing up for Gen Con Indy, which opens to the public this Thursday. This is the great-grandaddy of gaming conventions, and for me it’s always like a combination of summer camp and Christmas in August. It’s a chance to see all those friends I only run into a few times a year, as well as to check out all of the coolest things gaming has to offer.

I won’t be tied to a particular booth this year. Instead, you can find me charging all around the show. Here’s my public schedule:

Thursday, August 10:
11–11:30 AM: Signing at the Wizards of the Coast booth, along with James Wyatt.
1–3 PM: Signing at the Sabertooth Games/Black Library booth.
3–4 PM: Signing in Author’s Alley, along with Keith Baker, Ed Bolme, Tim Waggoner, and James Wyatt.
5–6 PM: “Lifetime Freelancer,” a seminar, in the Celebration Hall at the Hyatt.

Friday, August 11
12–1 PM: “
Designing Licensed Games,” a seminar, in the Celebration Hall at the Hyatt.

Saturday, August 12
1–3 PM:
Signing at the Sabertooth Games/Black Library booth.
3–4 PM: “Fantastic Adventures,” a seminar about working in Robert E. Howard’s worlds, in the Mt. Rushmore Room at the Hyatt, along with Leigh Stone and Thommy Wojciechowski of Paradox Entertainment, Mike Stackpole, Charlie Krank of Chaosium, Jason Robinette of Comic Images, Alex Fennel of Mongoose, and Shane Hensley of Pinnacle Entertainment Group.
4–5 PM: Signing in Author’s Alley, along with Keith Baker, Ed Bolme, Tim Waggoner, and James Wyatt.

Sunday, August 12
1–2 PM: “
Game Design 101,” a seminar, in the Celebration Hall at the Hyatt, along with James Ernest, Gwendolyn Kestrel, Sheri Graner Ray, and Mike Selinker.

Otherwise, you can probably spot me wandering around the exhibit hall, gabbing with friends, and roaming around with a happily dazzled look on my face. If you do, be sure to say hi.

  1. If you get the opportunity, swing by the Upper Deck booth and ask for a David Baumgartner.

    Good friend of mine, who you could say hello to for me.

  4. I did, Brian, but I missed David. The people at the booth said he was in the card gaming hall at the time, and trying to find him in there would have been difficult at best. Hopefully I’ll run into him at the next show.

  6. Depending what show that is, you may finally run into me. He’s invited me to GenCon So Cal, I just need to get there and I am in.
