Re: Gen Con 2020 Events

20 minutes away. We stayed in a smaller house last year. I have good parking and we can house 12 in the house. Costs are down and we carpool. Gencon on the cheap! I booked it last year as I was driving home from Gencon through AirBnB.

What GenCon taught me was to assume only one skull on three dice!

Re: Gen Con 2020 Events

Yesterday the Gov banned groups of 250+ from gathering. I'm starting to feel less confident that it's gonna happen, in it's present form.

I mean, GenCon is still 4.5 months away. A virus like this, while concerning, I don't think will last that long. I imagine it'll be under wraps within the next couple months after it runs its course and/or they create the necessary vaccine. But what do I know lol...I could also be totally wrong.

Re: Gen Con 2020 Events

I think it's basically impossible to estimate how long this is going to last because the government has tested such a small percent of the population. Gencon probably won't decide until at least June though, unless things get really bad. I do hope to see everyone though!

Ok not to get political but some back story, when I heard Pence was in charge I knew that this septic tank would end up blowing up in his face. When he was Gov he let and HIV outbreak explode in a small Indiana county while he prayed about it. That was his plan. Not needle exchanges or sending in the Health Dept

One of Indiana's Senators defended him 2 weeks ago saying that Pence had learned from his past mistakes....nope

I know when dok and I were discussing it, he said that he felt it was far enough away that it wouldn't likely be an issue and poor response to the virus would bring the peak faster making it even less likely Gencon would be cancelled. I know I'm making plans as if it's still on, but I'm also preparing in case it isn't.

Re: Gen Con 2020 Events

I’m not sure that I buy into the theory that, because we are so poorly prepared, this will all be over sooner.

As for whether it’s too “political” to say that we are unprepared, there are facts on the ground about this leadership and what it’s done and not done.

Re: Gen Con 2020 Events

Given that GenCon 2020 has been cancelled will this decision be revisited?

The short answer is no.
It could be cool to have a weekend of timed games, complete with a discord voice channel (or three) for everyone to hang out in and voice/video chat between games.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Not by the 3.5 of us. We already have other things we have to take care of during that time frame. However, Vegie may have some news for you guys...

Re: Gen Con 2020 Events

The short answer, which is all I have time for at the moment, is yes, there is a set of online Heroscape events played over Discord being planned for the weekend of the now officially cancelled Gencon. It won't be called Gencon, as it isn't Gencon, but we're hoping to translate as much of the experience as possible to online and really just have the fun yearly weekend of Heroscape. We'll have a detailed announcement out in the next few days.
