Funnybooks host Tim reports in with his GenCon 2014 experience…. On the road Wednesday at 8am wheels turning towards another Gencon.

It’s been a week since GenCon concluded, so it’s probably time to release Wayne’s last journal concerning the big show. Wayne reflects on the costume contest, Felicia Day and The Guild, and the dealer room. Plus, his final thoughts!

Funnybooks’ Wayne is our man-on-the-floor at this year’s GenCon currently rolling like exploding dice in Indianapolis.

In addition to playing games, buying stuff, and hanging out with friends, seeing all the cool people and things is just as much a part of the experience as the rest of it. People in costume are always fun. All the games are cool. Just seeing the crowd of people sharing your interest is awesome. […]
When folks think about awards at Gen Con, the Ennies generally come to mind. The Ennies are nice sure – if you’re into popularity contests. Nominees are selected by a panel of judges, but the winners are selected by fan popular vote. It’s kind of a People’s Choice Award for the RPG-set. Far more prestigious […]
