    I don't speak for the Gary Con organizers, but
    Definitely buy a badge. Click here for advice on how to have a great time at Gary Con even if preregistration doesn't go your way.

    Only a very small number of badges get early access- the total buying power of those folks only accounts for somewhere in the neighborhood of 5% of available seats at the Con.

    All good suggestions. My group of friends and I fit those descriptions . 2 just like leveling their DnD characters, one likes just boardgames..and I? Well I see a game system I have been wanting to try for years, is out of print, and havent even been able to get virtual tabletop of it going. Layer I will have to look over the full event catelog.

    I do not get your email updates.

    I had no idea email updates were sent out except for the kind soul who posted here about it.

    How do I sign up for email updates?

    Can you automatically send email updates to badge holders?

    I've said this elsewhere and this is a nice place to say it here again.

    You'd be surprised at how fun GaryCon is even when you don't get the exact events you want. I've done several years where I went commando - no events. Has some of my best years doing that as a matter of fact.

    So given my experience, if it were me I'd buy the badge, regardless.

    Agreed. My favorite games of all time at Gary Con were all pick-up games, not scheduled events.

    Not positive what you mean.
    Are you saying you see your email address is in the system?

    When you go to Contact Details, is the box for

    What about the same box in the Privacy page?

    Email has been there along with all of the settings to get all types of messages and emails on the forum site.

    Email has been there along with all settings to get all types of messages on the garycon.com site.

    Only 1 email was received after events were accepted and the link in the email took me to a login feature that did not work.

    No emails other than that 1 email have been recieved since the one when I had to reregister for the site when it was brand new last year before badge registration. This includes no confirmation of badge purchase either.

    Is there any chance the messages are going to your email JUNK folder or SPAM folder?

    stahlnee Spellbinder

    Nope. Check those daily and none have gone there.

    Which of these two sources for the anticipation registration is more accurate.

    On Saturday, January 30th registration opens for Platinum Badges at 8:00am EST.

    For all other badges, registration opens at 12:00pm (noon) EST on Jan. 30th.

    You can view the event catalog here: garycon.com/games

    I will get confirmation and post here as soon as I can.

    Just spoke to Luke, and he confirms that the information posted here is correct.
