We drove up from Florida on Monday and Tuesday, with a layover Monday night to visit some of Victoria’s family in northern Georgia. Victoria and I used the drive to put together some exciting plans for Year 4 of IGA — we officially launched at Gen Con 2014, so our “calendar year” ends with Gen Con — that we’ll be sharing with you after the show.
Arriving at about 7:30PM Tuesday night, we had about 30 minutes for the two of us to unload a very, very full cargo van:
We didn’t have any time to work on setup Tuesday, so we left the convention center for some desperately-needed sleep.
Today, we arrived bright and early, picked up our badges, and went to work on that surprise we told you about on Facebook.
As a reminder, this was our booth setup at Origins in June:
This is our setup at Gen Con booth #361:
Notice anything different? members and Minions — if you aren’t in these groups, now would be a great time to join.
IGA Year in Review
Not only is Gen Con the biggest show we do all year, it’s also the end of our year. This is normally when I reflect on the year that passed and announce new stuff for the year to come. On the absurdly long drive there and back, Victoria and I spent a lot of time talking about the future of IGA, and we’re going to be announcing the results of those conversations over the next few weeks. We think you’ll like what we’ve come up with. Expect to hear from us a lot soon…
… but not yet.
We’re going to need the next few days to wrap up Gen Con, and then we’re going to start working on the 2017-2018 year for IGA. Before we do, however, we’re going to go radio silent for a few days. We are positively spent after three major conventions in the span of 60 days, and we need a break to recharge. We will get Gen Con squared away first, and then after a week or so, we’ll be back in full swing, and boy, are we going to hit the ground running with what we have planned!
