    Default Gen Con 2012

    A few days late getting this year's thread started.

    Badges been on sale for a few days now, and Housing opens today.


    News of Jillian's closure will have to be discussed at some point as August draws nearer, as we ain't giving up our Friday gathering that easily.



    Tolero, Cord... Is there ANY chance of seeing Turbine [officially] at the 'Con this year?

    Of course, I shall endeavor to constantly remind myself that I was supposed to stay away from her.

    Default I'll Be There

    I am happy to say that after missing it for the last two years we will be there this year :-)

    Me! And my gamer girl.

    True Dungeoning too although that will be hard to coordinate at this late date.

    I suspect we will not have anyone from Turbine this year though. Did you see Tolero's post? I double-checked and she's right http://www.gamescom-cologne.com/en/g...home/index.php is the same weekend.

    Poor GenCon. The red-headed stepchild of Turbine gaming

    We're going to need a new meetup location. Jillian's is history.

    Man...


    (Yeah, I guess I'm a little late getting back to my own thread, but it hadn't popped up on my Subbed threads list so figured it hadn't been nudged. Sorry about those extra in-game nudges, T. )


    So decision between Indianapolis and Germany. Yeah, that's a tough one.

    That's pretty much the only reason why I haven't given in to the urge to cancel my trip this year.

    I'll most likely be there, and since Jillians is gone, maybe the Tilted Kilt (think of Hooters with a Celtic setting lol)?

    This site ( http://www.indydt.org/nightlifebusinesses.cfm) might help if someone else wants to look at possible places. I know The Ram always welcomes GenCon'rs with open registers...I mean arms

    Cool

    Still no location set yet? I like the idea of the Ram, but they always seemed to have a waiting line to get in while Gencon was in town. Celtic Hooters, I'm all for that. Does that mean we would all need to wear kilts?

    My gamer girl votes for Claddaggh Irish Pub - assuming it is welcoming to a group of our size and dubious appearance

    That or the Tilted Kilt works for me!

    Cool

    After reviewing some of the websites for the suggested sites I would say the Tilted Kilt looks like it may have the room. RAM, although large, was always crowded and I haven't seen less than a 30 min wait to get in during Gencon. Claddaugh, doesn't seem to have an open area that we could raid and conquer but they didn't have the best pictures of their space, they seemed to take lots of pics of the bar and not really the restaurant.

    Jilllian's was nice because they had the upstairs bar that didn't seem to get overcrowded and always had space for us to come and go as needed. The most I've seen at a DDO gathering was about 15-20 so would need space for that many. Because this is an unofficial gathering we can't count on anyone taking the reigns to call ahead and reserve the space (unless someone here wants to).

    Without actually being in Indy and visiting each site its hard to tell.

    Does anyone know how to put in a survey to see which we would prefer?
    1. Tilted Kilt
    2. Claddaugh
    3. RAM

    My vote goes for Tilted Kilt, looks fun

    Smile Need to get this locked down

    Let's just call it Tilted Kilt, Friday, 8pm-ish until whenever.

    Yes?

    That sounds good to me! So, yup! I'll be going to GenCon this year. We'll have a bit more information about our plans in the coming weeks (where you can find us, for example), but I feel comfortable in saying that we're unlikely to host an official gathering this year. That said, you KNOW I want to have an unofficial get-together!

    The Tilted Kilt wasn't around when I lived in Indy, but seems about right location-wise at least. I know the DDO Cocktail Hour is taping on Saturday night (in an official Gen Con event), so Friday night seems like the best night for at least some of us DDO folks.
    Have fun, and don't forget to gather for buffs!
