2014 Conventions, So Far

It’s 2014 already, so it’s time to start talking about new conventions again. So far, I’m committed to two conventions:

Nexus Game Fair

Milwaukee, WI. June 19–22. 

This is a new show but with a lot of familiar faces, including Harold Johnson, Jolly Blackburn, Mike Carr, Chris Clark, Zeb Cook, Jeff Easley, Ernie Gygax, Dave Kenzer, James Lowder, Frank Mentzer, Merle Rasmussen, Jim Ward, and Skip Williams.

Gen Con

Indianapolis, IN. August 14–17.

This is my favorite time of year. I’m once again part of the committee selecting the Industry Insider Guests of Honor, and this will mark my 33rd consecutive Gen Con and 12th in a row as a guest of honor. I’ll also take part in the Gen Con Writers Symposium.

If you love games, books, or both, do not miss this show.

In the closer future, I’m planning on heading down to Love Is Murder at the InterContinental Chicago O’Hare Hotel to Bar Con it on Friday, February 8.

I’m also considering/on the bubble for the following shows.

  • Gary Con (Lake Geneva, WI. March 28–30)
  • Odyssey Con (Madison, WI. April 4–6)
  • WisCon (Madison, WI. May 23–26)
  • C2E2 (Chicago, IL. April 25–27)
  • Geek.Kon (Madison, WI. August 22–24)
  • GrandCon (Grand Rapids, MI. September 19–21)

I’ll update these on my Appearances page as the dates get closer. These are all great shows though, and whether I’m there or not, you should go if you can.

I hope to see you on the road!
