Prelude My friends Billy and Kasey invited me along to Gen Con this year. I enjoy board games, friends, and questionable financial decisions. It was a moderately easy decision. The fun started a few weeks before the convention, when 17,000+ events were posted to the worst scheduling website devised by man. Things fill up quickly, but the reservation system is kind of a nightmare. Many events repeated every hour, it’s all sorted chonologically, and it’s very easy to lose your place in the huge list.
