GenCon 2014

I’m looking forward to GenCon 2014 next week.  My wife and I are actually going all 4 days this year!  It will be exhausting, but a welcome escape into the safety of the nerds.  Since we are going all 4 days, we are looking at going to some of the events going on this year.  One event we are definitely going to attend is the Tabletop Panel of Awesome, hosted by Geek & Sundry.  If you aren’t subscribed to their YouTube channel, then what are you waiting for?  Check that out here.

Anyway, I’m really hoping that Wil Wheaton comes to the panel.  I know he usually attends GenCon, being the avid tabletop gamer he is.  I’m also anxious to find out who the Media Guests of Honor are going to be this year.  So far, none of them have been announced.  It’s to the point that I’m starting to wonder if they are even having any this year.  I am excited to see Terese Nielsen, the Artist Guest of Honor this year.  She has done a lot of work for Magic: The Gathering, as well as book covers for Del Ray, publishers of the Star Wars expanded universe novels.

Are you going to GenCon this year?  What are you most excited about?  Who do you think the Media Guests will be?  Chime in with a comment!
