GenCon 2013 Map – Location for A&A Gaming

Greg Smorey has been running Axis & Allies events at GenCon for the past 20 years. If you’re attending GenCon, you should get on his mailing list. Here are his last two email updates for you.

July 3, 2013:

Greetings Axis & Allies Gamers,

GEN CON is only 42 days away. I have just been informed that GEN CON has too many events to fit everything in the on site event book. So, they are letting everyone know that if an EVENT is sold-out before hand, it will NOT be printed in the program book. So, any Axis & Allies Events I am running that is sold out will NOT be in the on-site pre-reg booklet.

At this time, the only events that have SOLD-OUT and will NOT be in the on site preregistration book are, ALL but 2 of the Axis & Allies for Beginners Events. A Sold Out Event in the Online event listing is greyed. If you are still interested in playing, you can bring generic tickets to the event anyway, in case a space opens up. Tickets also become available if someone cancels.

Just a reminder as well, we will have our annual door prize give away for everyone one that has played in any Axis & Allies event I run over the course of the 4 day. Your entry into each AA event buys you one door prize ticket for the plethora of games and prizes we give away on Sunday. Games will include, but not limited to All Editions of AA except for the old 2nd Ed. version, other WotC/AH games, shirts, and other cool gaming prizes…

We will be located this year just next to where we were located last year but in Hall C. Not sure what the preregistration book will say but we will be located at the red X on the ICC map. (See attached).

Last, I was terrible at taking pictures this year at ORIGINS. So, I have updated the Swamp with the only picture I had and the winners of each event run…enjoy.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Hope to see you next month.

AA Gamers,

Now, 30 days until GEN CON, or just over 4 weeks if you prefer.

I have been diligently planning for the event and hope, everything is going smoothly for you if you plan on attending as well. No real new items at this time just that I have now included a few more pics I received from Origins. Also, I apologize if I have not been on either or Larry’s site chatting with you more about the upcoming events but each and every year seems to get a bit more time consuming, hence not enough time to get online and do those kind of things before hand…

I do however, have my recon scouts checking for me to see if there are any pressing items that need to be addressed.

We will be located in Hall C this year. Close to where we were last year. See attachment map. We are located on the red “X”

I will be sending out an updated list of AA rules for any game rules that have changed or have been revised since Origins. There will be very few but just to let you know where things stand. I hope to get those out to you and up on the Swamp by weeks end.

Also, a reminder that we will have our Axis & Allies Awards ceremony on Sunday around noon at the AAHQ for everyone that played in any ticketed event. This is the time when i give away all prizes to those that have won events as well as give anyone else that played in an event, a chance to win some really cool Axis & Allies prizes.

If you have any questions regarding the upcoming GEN CON schedule, please let me know.

Thanks for your time and Consideration.
