Indianapolis, again, knocked it out of the park here. All the complainers are going to wish it was back in Indy in a number of years when the Con outgrows the space and possibly moves to another city.
Baldman Games. Great job, as always, running D&D AL games.
Downtown Marriott. The remodel is really good.
Vault of the Dragon board game by Gale Force Nine. I was lucky enough to get in to this game using generics and had a fun time playing this one.
WotC not being at Gen Con. It's just unbelievable to me that they don't attend Gen Con.
Can't think of much else here.
People bringing their politics into Gen Con and on the forums. My group goes to Gen Con to have a good time and escape real world issues for a few days each year. I don't care who you voted for, if your daughter/son/dog is liberal/conservative or what your social beliefs are. Have fun, be nice to each other and leave the political nonsense at home.
