Howdy!

The preliminary GenCon event list is up! Almost 8,000 events are listed - there will probably be several thousand more in the final reg book (last year there were over 12,000 event listings).

Last year there were 15-20 Warhammer 40K rpg games at GenCon, and this year there is ONE Rogue Trader game?! Really? It doesn't look good for the other W40K games, either. What gives?  Last year, there were at least 4-5 RT game events.

Cheers,

Ken

Yeah fun. 4 spots too. It's first on my list, but I expect to be skunked on it. I think it's interesting given how many events FFG directly runs on the boardgaming side, but that can't find a few people to run some official GenCon exclusive missions?

NO kidding - especially since there is more money to be made on the RPG side with the books and supps!

 

There has GOT to be more W40K events coming in late.  Compared to last year, this year's 40K event showing is a joke.  For a HUGELY popular and VERY good selling RPG, 3 events at the LARGEST game con in the US is sad.
