VIG Packages available

We are pleased to announce that for 2012 we have increased the number of “Very Important Gamer” Packages to 230 in order to bring in new blood for Gen Con’s 45th Anniversary. Our 2011 VIGs have already renewed their packages for this year, snatching up almost half of the available packages, but there are still over 100 left for the taking.

This year’s prices are $540 for the VIG Package and $110 for VIG Companion badges. Each VIG may purchase up to three (3) Companion badges, but there are only 350 available, so get them while supplies last.

The next time you log into your Gen Con Account, you may see things have moved around a bit. Not to worry! You can still access your “Profile”, “Transactions” and “Friends & Family” pages easily. Simply move your mouse cursor over your name in the upper right corner. A drop-down menu will appear with all the pages you need. And make sure your Profile is up-to-date while you’re checking things out!

RPGs Moving Around in 2012

In 2012, most RPGs will be in the JW, Marriott, and the Hyatt, so they will all be within a block of two of each other, making it much easier to get between games. There will be some exceptions, depending on event needs and overall submission volume, but the bulk of RPGs will be in those three hotels. In addition, Wizards of the Coast will be hosting the majority of their RPGA and Living Forgotten Realms events in the Marriott, where True Dungeon used to be.
