Re: How do you convince your parents to take you to GenCon

I was mainly resenting the "I have no idea what you should do" part.

Like Superheroes and Comics?

Head here to get started!

Playtesting is the most helpful thing!

Re: How do you convince your parents to take you to GenCon

Turtleking: You will learn more about scape in 4 days at GenCon than in months of other play. You will play some very good players and meet some all around good human beings. Though the Magic or YuGiOh card game players are sometimes a bit too intense...

If she was there at the Madison events over the last year, she would have seen some people who will be there. Me, my son, Jexik, ET86 for example.

I dropped my son off at events and met him at the end of events when he was 12. He had the run of the place (with his cell phone along) when he was 14.

The only place you mom has you is the "they are just trying to get to you buy stuff" part. Don't let her see the vendor hall. You, on the other hand, most certainly want to see the vendor hall.

There is plenty to do in and around Indy. Sell it as a family vacation.

The Indianapolis Zoo is a good one.
The Eiteljorg Museum
The Indianapolis Childrens Museum.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway - Unless GenCon coincides with the Brickyard 400 this year. - Visit the Museum, take the track tour.
Plenty of shopping downtown at the Circle Center Mall. Movie theater there too.
Indianapolis Museum of Art west of downtown.

Kings Island in the Cincinnati area is about a two hour drive from Indy.
And if you are venturing to Cincy, there is the Museum Center at Union Station.

I'm sure Retlaw or Hahn could expand this list, its been a few years since I have been a Hoosier.

Re: How do you convince your parents to take you to GenCon

Step 1: Start delivering papers, or if your local law allows it (mine did when I was that age) start bagging groceries.
Step 2: Save
Step 3: It'll be a lot easier to convince your mom or dad to come down if you're covering your own.

Re: How do you convince your parents to take you to GenCon

Age is the issue from what I read. Cash may become the issue when age is no longer the issue.
