This year Gen Con 50 will be growing to encompass the same play field used by the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts. This means the Games Library & Pick-up Play space will relocate from the ICC to the new location on the LOS field.
Interested gamers will be able to pick-up a new “weekend pass” ticket for the events held on the field. There will be a free-to-play Kids’ events space, True Dungeon and Anime & Animation events, as well as a ton of stuff hosted by companies like Mayfair Games, Twilight Creations, and WizKids Games.
As a celebration of the new space, Gen Con 50 is adding a showcase area on the LOS field. This showcase will take a look at the first Gen Con, held in the 1967 so you can get a taste of how far the convention has come in since then.
