Posted By: Steve SegedySo altogether, which indie-game-oriented vendor booths and events are taking place at Gen Con this year? Here's what I see:Indie Press Revolution and Evil Hat sharing a booth in the back (#2339)Adept Press and Burning Wheel in neighboring booths (#1730 and 1732)Design Matters at the front of the hall (#2100)
Posted By: DanielSolisI know for sure that volunteers will be running Happy Birthday, Robot! at Games On-Demand. Still settling on details, though.
Posted By: HarlequinIs table-top gaming usually this spread out?
Posted By: lantern314When do people usually start to gather at Embassy Suites in the evening?
Posted By: Steve SegedyMy general advice is to go the vendor booths and Games on Demand during the day and meet folks first.
Posted By: Jim CrockerLast year there were occasional difficulties in figuring out good times to show up. Any chance we can at least get a rough time frame of when game sessions might start (even It it's just "every hour on the hour")?
Posted By: Steve SegedyWould it be useful to have a Twitter account for Games on Demand (or Indie Games Explosion more generally) where people could post updates about games? "@indiegamesexplosion starting a game of Lady Blackbird at 2pm- need one player! #GenCon".

Posted By: anansigirlAnd/Or maybe just a sign up sheet with meetup times in the area we're supposed to play games. GM makes the sheet, players sign up. If its not full, and other things are happening at that designated time, maybe the players can converge! Or just a list of possible games. Isn't that how it's supposed to go down, with like, a stack of books advertising what GM's could run?
Posted By: blankshieldIt's too late to get reservations at Buca in the evening. A month ago may well have been too late. Afternoon, though, you might get lucky.
Posted By: Steve Segedy I have a small table for Saturday night at 7pm. I'm betting that they have more, if folks are interested. Maybe we could even take the place over, one table at a time.
Posted By: AndyDamn. Now I kinda wish I had put together some sort of official "Story Games (tm) Meetup (tm)" or somthing. Hindsight 20/20 and all that.Unofficially, should we all just kinda congregate in the Embassy Suites dining area some night (Fri/Sat) at 8:00PM or so? I'm up for a mass laid-back talking and gaming meetup if it's low-key and laid back.-Andy
Posted By: Jim CrockerSG folks-If you don't mind a few block walk or short cab ride there is a fantastic and stupidly-cheap-to-my-East-Coast-eye Indian restaurant that has fantastic food, lots of space and is just enough out of the way that it's usually easy to get into.http://www.indiagardenindy.com/Just a thought. Buca will be a complete mob scene all weekend.-Jim C.
