GenCon Bingo Day 2

Friday brings our first full day at the con, and this year we’ve snapped lots of pictures, and many of them might help you complete your bingo card. Here’s what we found today:

Fantasy staples like elves, goblin, and (as in this example) winged fairies are foundational for GenCon costumes
Steampunk explorers are also a common sight at GenCon
Particularly good costumes can draw particularly large crowds of photographers
Many new board games make their debut in GenCon's exhibit hall. This game, Rolling Freight, will be available this fall
These two attendees have worked hard and gathered many ribbons for their name-tags. You can get ribbons many ways including playing Settlers of Catan, or answering riddles at the Cloud Kingdom booth.
Link, pictured here with Zelda, and many other video game heroes are popular GenCon costumes
An attendee dressed as Harry Dresden (including common con item a leather fedora) visits the Who North America booth

We actually took so many pictures today that we couldn’t fit them all into this post. We’ll get a little sleep and share the rest in the next post.

    I have both “name tag with 10 Catan ribbons” and “name tag with 10 ribbons.” Since the pic above has two qualifying name tags, can I count it for both squares?

      Sure…I think that counts. The older boy had 10 ribbons that were Catan related.

    Have you ever seen the movie ’27 Dresses’? I wonder how many of the fairy, princess, etc… costumes are re-purposed dresses from being a bridesmaid. 🙂
