    Will there be a 2014 Gary Con Challenge Coin?

    I haven't seen any information about this, but I would buy several. I picked up one at GC 2 or 3, & it is one of my favorite gaming mementoes.

    You are in luck! We have ordered the coins and they will be available at GC VI. They are my favorite as well.

    Cool! I like how you've done them every other year.

    Will these (and t-shirts!) be available at some point on this site under Souvenirs?

    We have a lot of new souvenirs this year! More details to come.

    The challenge coins are in- and they look awesome!

    Not those "special" autographed pics of you again... they just take up so much room in the bags.

    Only if they come with a sharpie and several darts.

    When you told me last year to autograph yours with "BFF" - I had no idea what that meant.

    A Rubenesque portrait of Dale in repose seems pointless unless it is autographed.

    I really want to make sure I get a Challenge Coin as it's my first GaryCon. I'll be getting in Wednesday, how do I go about making sure I get one?

    Hi all! Okay, gotta ask - what is a Challenge Coin and what's the story behind it? :p Very intrigued! :)

    While people are at the bar, one person calls a challenge, everyone has to pull out and show a challenge coin that matches the person calling a challenge. Those that do not end up splitting a round of drinks for the group.

    Problem - Some of us are on a budget.

    That's not exactly how the Gary Con challenge coin works. If you were in an organization like the military, then yes. The Gary Con coins are all numbered. Somebody please correct me if I am wrong here, but from what I have read in other threads, it goes like this: If you pull yours out to challenge someone, whoever has the coin with the higher number buys a drink for the person holding the lower number. It's completely optional to take part in this. If you want to buy a coin just as a souvenir and not participate in the challenge aspect, you are welcome to do so.

    Hope this helps.

    There is no requirement to buy anyone a drink. The coins are numbered to be more collectible. It is a nice coincidence that we can also, on a voluntary basis, use it as a military style challenge coin.

    Is it possible to request a number like last time? I would like to get the same numbered coin as my previous one.
