Gen Con is a grand gathering of all things geek. This year the convention celebrates its 50th anniversary with over 60,000 attendees! Every slice of the nerd pie can be found in Indianapolis for four wonderfully exhausting days of fun and games. 

This amazing variety means that no two people have the same Gen Con experience. Everyone's Gen Con is different.

This is the story of our Gen Con - a tale packed with special guests, discussions of over 30 games, interviews, and lots and lots of laughs.

Show notes continue after the break.
