I'm sure we've kicked this around in a prior Forum, but how many Gencon's
have you folks attended? For me, this year is 33, and I haven't missed one yet.
Still as hyped as any other year.

Just three - 1988, when it was also Origins (and the hotel problem in Milwaukee rivaled what's happening now - I was in an airport hotel), 1999 (got a hotel pretty much across the street from the con), and 2015.

My first was 2002 and I've made each year except last year.  Hawaii was more attactive than going to GenCon.

11th overall, 10th in a row (we missed 2006 because I was in my first year of law school).

Number three for me: 2012, 2014, and now 2016.  I guess that makes me one of the faceless hordes swelling the crowds to the degree that all the old-timers hate, but oh well.

16, 3 in the 80's when it was at the University of Wisconsin, then all the ones in Indy.

This one will be #6; previous were '03, '09, '11, '13 and '15.  '03 was great as it was the first year in Indy and the city didn't yet know what it had; food-beer-hotel prices weren't jacked for the Con days like they are now.

Feels weird to be going in an even-numbered year. :)

This year will be my 10th.  '03, '04, '05, '06, '07, '09, '13, '14, '15.  Started going when it came to Indy, and have only missed some years when I was a broke college student.

This will be my 4th.

2003, 2012, 2013, and 2016.

2013 was great, 2012 was good for the amount of prep we did. 2003 was terrible. 2016 is looking mediocre so far. Hopefully we can get into some events as people drop/add to their schedule in the coming weeks.

This will be my 39th consecutive GenCon.

First one was GenCon XI, at the University of Wisconsin - Parkside, in 1978.

My first was the last Parkside. That makes Mecca still the magical 'back in the day' place for me. 

It still felt like a small Con then. Flyers for events tacked up on bulletin boards, pegboard of event tickets. Sniff Sniff. :(

This will be my 9th in a row (2008 to present) and I'm actually going solo this year for the first time.  I may take a break after next year's 50th anniversary until my boys get a little bit bigger and can join me if they want.
