Gen Con 2011 Special – Ep17

If you’ve never been, and you’re a gamer, you need to.

This year some of us went to Indianapolis for Gen Con, and we recorded from there on the third day of the convention.  We do not have our usual band of miscreants, as some were not able to make it, but we still were able to give you our impression of the con (in true Gamerstable style).

    Just to clarify the rules for parking in Downtown Indy:

    If you park at a Fancy Meter(TM), ya know, the ones with the credit card swipes, then they are only free after 9pm Mon-Saturday. Those are generally in the most used parking spots and are slowing spreading like a virus downtown. You can only get the spot for 2 hours but its only 2 bucks. If you need to just drop by to grab your badge, then this is definitely for you.

    If you park at the old traditional style meters, parking is free on Saturday and Sunday. Also, parking is free after 6 pm. This is huge for that first day you are in the city. Come in on a Thursday afternoon and grab your free metered parking for the first day. In the mean time you will save yourself like 40 bucks. Grats! Have a fine dinner on my sage advice.
