Final Day of GenCon Bingo

Alack alack, it has come to an end. Just because Sunday is the final day of the convention doesn’t mean that there’s nothing going on; gaming continues and the exhibit hall thrums with life. We have snapped a few more pictures that document a little more of what we saw this year. Don’t forget to submit your scores with by 10:30 pm central time Monday, August 08, 2011. Best of luck to you all.

Each year there are many ways that gamers give back to the community during the convention. The funds raised this year go to support School on Wheels. Here members of Gamers for Humanity show off donated goods
Smart phones made browsing the events list easier, and GPS made sure you could find the restaurant you were looking for, but all those smarts are hard on battery life. Here an attendee recharges herself and her phone.

OK, so that’s what we saw. The convention this year was awesome, and I really enjoyed all the new space that we were able to utilize. I’m still honing my strategies for getting to events and managing budgets and inventories, but I guess that’s what future conventions are for; hope to see you there.
