The last time I was at Gencon was in 2009, and before that 2006.
I'm thinking about going this year as an exhibitor, as I will have a number of games to retail (Perfect Unrevised, Monsterhearts, Ribbon Drive, possibly a fourth).
What booths are happening? Which people are looking for boothmates and booth organizing support?
If you'd like to talk privately about this, we could start a whisper chain or take it to email (my last name at gmail).
If you'd like to talk openly about this, that'd also be awesome.
If I could find booth buy-in for an affordable rate, and crash space somewhere reasonable, I might be in attendance.
1.) Are booths still the best way to sell? Or should I be looking at running lots of games and vending out of a backpack? Something else?
2.) Other tips and suggestions? Is Gencon dead? Should I go elsewhere? Should I start my own convention in Indianapolis the week after? What?
