WISHFUL THINKING? Countdown to GenCon 2021

Postby Black Jack Rackham » Thu Aug 06, 2020 11:00 am

All kidding aside, I just started this post to let folks know that IF you are planning on going next year (regardless of whether or not it actually happens) you are going to need to start thinking about rooms at this point. (yes, yes, I know. Not you Ken, you're immune from the chaos of hotel reservations).


And as a warning, I just logged into my usual method to get rooms and encountered a problem. Not insurmountable but irritating and possibly offputting. If like me, you want go come in a day early and leave a day late, the rates change so the system won't be able to handle that. You have to get one reservation for the con, then a different one for the extra day (or two). Stupid, I know, but if you search for all the days, it will tell you there's no availability (cause they jacked the prices during the con).

I reserved ours without an issue, which is fairly amazing given my luck with all things computer this week.

Im not immune to it. I just had all of it for the rest of the time its in indy compressed into 3 months. And you dont need to involved 3 government agencies, 4 banks, 3 insurance companies, 4 inspectors and a full work crew of roofers and an electrician to get your room.

My "Room" costs me 44 bucks a day, split 3 ways currently, but i had to get the room for a minimum of 5 years.

One of the perks of working the con - I don't have to worry about the hotel. (Of course, I also get very limited time to actually play any games....)
