I hope all who go have a great time. I would try to attend, but in doing so, I would end up homeless and penniless, because my fiancée would kick my retarded bootay. So, go for me! Damnit. Enjoy, and buy lots of neat stuff.

I couldnt go last year for that same reason.  I told my wife after our honeymoon that I was going to GenCon no matter what this year.  I have been putting money in a savings account specifically for buying stuff at the con since last November so hopefully I will have enough to pick up a few rarities that are on my wish list.  8)

so am looking for a little adventure that we can just play for a short period and enjoy....

Well its has been in the 90's for a few days now there so expect 80-90s.

Its rained only 1 time while GenCon has been in Indy, so expect pretty good weather..well, bloody brilliant compared to what you've had :)

I am bringing an umbrella just in case.  Nothing worse than a bunch of wet collectibles.  :safe:

Expect mid to upper 80's or hotter with high humidity(80%+). The last few days have really been toasty(93-95). Our pale asses need to move to Alaska.  :)

Not sure yet, I'm still plotting when we'll be delving into Castle El Raja Key for our after-hours game.  I'll post back next week, and if I don't, someone please PM me a reminder? :D

I'm auctioning minaiatures until 2:30 on Friday. Anytime after is OK so far; do not know what they have me scheduled for. It will probably be the big auctions on Fri and Sat nites, so I may be able to make it, if I'm still welcome. If I'm not dead broke, that is.
