Long time Gen Con attendee here. Up until an hour ago it looked like I was going to miss my first Gen Con in about 10 years due to a work obligation. Now it seems I will have the time off to go. I found a flight from Los Angeles. I found a place to stay near'ish Indianapolis. However, this late in the game I have absolutely no events and because I initially wasn't going my usual Gen Con friends that come out with me are also not going. So...do I make the trip alone (not a big deal) with no events? I'm guessing if I do go I arm myself with a bunch of generics and try to get into D&D games, True Dungeon, Fantasy Flight and Pathfinder games, etc.
Anyone ever come to Gen Con last minute with no event tickets? I come for the gaming (and a little socializing) and like to stay busy. It's a long trip from California to plan last minute. What do you all think?
