Welcome to Gen Con.
INDIANAPOLIS—Gen Con, America's biggest and longest-running board game extravaganza, held its 52nd annual convention in downtown Indianapolis this past weekend, and we were there once again to take it all in. The convention is kind of like a giant board game release party, where publishers unleash their newest games to the most committed and enthusiastic tabletop gamers. A total of 70,000 unique attendees made the trek to Indiana this year for the self-proclaimed "best four days in gaming."
If you couldn't make it to the convention, you're in luck. Above, peruse the show floor from the comfort of your own electronic device. Below, enjoy a bonus gallery of some of our favorite cosplayers. But most importantly, stay tuned for our full roundup of the show's best games coming later this week. After all, this year's conference has more to offer than just the long-awaited release of Pathfinder's second edition.
