View Full Version : GenCon Roll Call

08-14-2013, 11:35 AM
Who's in Indy? :)

I'm safely ensconced in my hotel room having braved Will Call for my tickets. I can't believe I finally get to play Hex tomorrow!

08-14-2013, 11:43 AM
Hope you have fun Colin :-)
Of course I am super jealous not to be at GenCon and able to get the Merc's etc but I am also super excited for Hex and really hope the "show" goes well. This is a huge opportunity to promote the game we all already love. I really hope it helps to bring in a load more players to grow the user base and community. Looking forward to seeing the feedback and reviews and hopefully next stop is alpha.

08-14-2013, 11:46 AM
I'm so jealous :) Regretfully i can't attend as i am half the world away. Have fun !!!

08-14-2013, 11:49 AM
I'll be flying in tomorrow afternoon.

08-14-2013, 12:09 PM
I really wish I could be there but due to real life circumstances (i.e. work and other stuff), I'm not able to make it out to GenCon. The convention just happens to be around one of the busiest times of the year for me and usually I need about six months to a year to plan for long distance trips.

Bit bummed out though since in the last update: "I am really looking forward to interacting with some of the community and the Dragon Lord dinner is shaping up to be an amazing evening (we have a couple of special gifts in store those attending)" - Cory Jones

Although I'm eligible for the dinner, seems like I'll still miss out on the extra goodies anyway. (And it drives my collector-sense crazy - I'm still getting over not having any chance at the first exclusive sleeves at Hex's first major presence. *coughOCDtendenciescough*)

I am going to try to make it to HexCon though. At the very least, would like to meet Cory and company in person. :)

08-14-2013, 12:17 PM
I'm driving in Friday morning with my family (wife +3kiddies) and leaving Sunday. It's our first time experience ever going to a gaming convention and we're all really excited to go. I can't wait to meet everyone!!!

08-14-2013, 12:22 PM
I'll be there with 3 others from Las Vegas.

08-14-2013, 12:40 PM
Il go if somebody pays for my airfare and hotel. Ill even attend the DL diner for ya.....Deal? ;)

08-14-2013, 12:53 PM
Have fun everyone, and try to get some new info for us staying at home

08-14-2013, 01:42 PM

Word. You guys are our scouts in the field. I can't wait to hear what you guys have to say about the game!

08-14-2013, 02:32 PM
I'll be there, picked up my ticket at will call just a while ago... now to the tilted kilt!

08-14-2013, 02:36 PM
Already in and filled up on sushi

08-14-2013, 03:17 PM
I won't be at GenCon till early tomorrow morning.

08-14-2013, 03:26 PM
Have a great time everbody! For the Brits amount us have to say in TOWIE style am 'well jel' of you all. Please do report back with any interesting tidbits

08-14-2013, 07:41 PM
We have at least four guild members attending with two at the dinner. I am sure they will kick some arse.

08-14-2013, 08:13 PM
Couldn't make it.

Between moving, opening a new store, and dealing with personal stuff I couldn't swing the time off to go.

This is why I'm into things like Hex, that don't require scheduling time off to play :-p

Hope everyone has a blast, I miss the days when I could go to cons regularly.

08-15-2013, 03:43 AM
I won't be there, unfortunately. If someone wants to give procure me some loot though, I certainly wouldn't mind! It's for Casual Hex. Yeah, that's right _ *cough*

08-15-2013, 04:48 AM
just got through will call which was surprisingly fast, very excited... stopping to charge my phone and charge myself with lots of coffee,

08-15-2013, 05:04 AM
Chilling in front of the vendor hall. Gotta get through shopping fast to max out HEX playing time later.

im probably standi.g right by you, would give you the twelve packs right but well y'know

08-15-2013, 06:20 AM
I don't see your signature hair, but I'm hard to miss as (surprisingly) the only guy in a Colts jersey up front.

08-15-2013, 09:51 AM
Waiting on my plane. On track to be there by 6

08-15-2013, 10:03 AM
Ouch. Right in my jealousy organ.

08-15-2013, 10:29 AM
Not coming in until early friday.

WWKnight and Machine will be traveling with me.

We are staying about 20 miles outside of town since we could not get closer back in May.

08-15-2013, 10:46 AM
I just don't have a hotel for Thursday night. I'm going to try to sleep on Cory's floor. Guess we'll see how it goes =P

08-15-2013, 10:55 AM
Ya i did not want to spend another $200 to get in late tonight. We could come down late tonight but we would not be there till midnightish anyways.

Going to try to be there around 11 am or so tomorrow.

08-15-2013, 11:07 AM
So far everything has been down, guess no play time today.

08-15-2013, 11:09 AM
Man let us hope this gets resolved quickly - I really want to see a huge influx of new hexer's get drawn in with awesome Hex Content this weekend. Plus I selfishly want more card spoils and info ;)

08-15-2013, 11:36 AM
Well. I guess I don't feel too bad then. My flight got delayed and I will miss my connection so I'll not get in until 10. Very little time to seduce Cory into giving me his hotel room floor. =\

08-15-2013, 11:43 AM
Where are you coming in from Gwaer?

08-15-2013, 02:19 PM
I'm sitting at a station waiting to play. game looks more amazing then I would've thought up close but servers are down from a bug:(

08-15-2013, 05:16 PM
So, update. My flight from Atlanta was delayed. And my connection left early. So I'm stranded in Cleveland possibly for the night.

08-15-2013, 05:17 PM
That sucks, man. Hope it all works out for you!

08-15-2013, 05:19 PM
So, update. My flight from Atlanta was delayed. And my connection left early. So I'm stranded in Cleveland possibly for the night.

Faster to rent a car? Maybe the airline can get you a bus/train ticket? Cleveland isn't that far from Indy.

08-15-2013, 06:21 PM
Kyle's right. It's not TOO far of a drive. You could do it.

I had a bad flight experience on my way out to California just last week... our first flight got delayed an hour and a half leaving, so I only had 30 minutes to cross the entire Montreal airport and clear customs to catch my flight to the States. Man, did that suck. I never ran so fast in my life. :)

I never did get a chance to hit up the Crypto offices, either. Too busy with family stuff.

Anyway Gwaer, hope you work it out either way. Sleeping in the airport is the WORST.

08-15-2013, 06:48 PM
They comped me a hotel room for the night. And I have a 6:30 flight to Indy in the morning. As long as nothing untoward happens tomorrow I should be there before it opens.

08-15-2013, 07:05 PM
Well look on the bright side. At least you solved your hotel room predicament. :)

08-15-2013, 08:16 PM
There are a lot of bright sides actually. I got comped a hotel. 60 worth of food and 300 worth of airline tickets in the future. Which is 100 more than I paid for the round trip in the first place. I'm not too upset. But I'd have liked to spend the day chatting up Cory. Unfortunately I have to get up at 5am for my flight. So bed time. See you guys on the morrow.

08-15-2013, 08:29 PM
Cya tomorrow Gwaer, up at 6 to make the 300 mile drive in then.

08-15-2013, 08:31 PM
Have a safe trip, guys. Enjoy the con!

08-16-2013, 06:55 AM
Hah! Even though my first flight was canceled the second one went. So I am now in Indiana. On a bus headed to the convention center!

08-16-2013, 07:07 AM
I am surprised you didn't get stopped at security Gwaer with that fake blonde hair, dress, lipstick and tiara I bet you're wearing:p

08-16-2013, 07:13 AM
Better to be open about it than for the TSA to find it in his bags during a random check. That would be awkward.

08-16-2013, 08:02 AM
No costume for me. I wasn't planning on being here.

08-17-2013, 12:35 AM
I am here.

I got the mercs. Be jelly.

08-17-2013, 05:22 AM
Checking in lat due to the fact I despise posting through my phone. Been a great con and looking forward to a Saturday of hex

08-17-2013, 07:11 PM
Got to meet you guys, it was rockin!

08-17-2013, 07:23 PM
Yea, I had a great time. Sorry I lost track of you tonight. I'd have rather hung with you guys than waiting 2 hours for food.

08-17-2013, 09:11 PM
Ya I agree. It's cool though you can find us online and email us any time :)

08-17-2013, 09:23 PM
It was a freakin sweet time! Our community is so awesome and I am glad to be a part if it. I hope everyone else has gotten to play their fill of hex for the pre-alpha. We are going to be there tomorrow with more time to socialize. Sadly the Princess Cory dress is packed already so it shall be no more.
