It's that time again... and by that time I mean time to think about buying tickets to a con that is 9 months away.

edit: feeling lazy, just updated 2019 post with 2020 info

Undecided but leaning no. Skipping out on my kids birthday (13!) feels wrong. If only he was more interested in board games...

Where is it?
There are three ways to not tell the truth: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

Like that's a relevant fact or something! :oops:

Dallas. The board game geek leadership lives down here, so the BGG library lives down here, so the convention also lives down here.

It appears that registration is still open. Looks like PAX Unplugged may be siphoning off some demand.

Bigger venue = more tickets. They won't say how many more though. We'll get the number November 23rd.

It finally sold out a month and a half later. One of my friends from work snagged a ticket so you shouldn't have to babysit me the whole time you are there.

Do they usually sell out? If so, how soon?
I might be able to make a trip to Dallas in November since I'll be retired by then.

Sellout time has varied widely over the years, from 2 hours to 6 weeks. Last year was closer to 6 weeks as they moved to a new location that could accommodate many more attendees. The real challenge for out of towners is getting a room. The hotel sells out very fast. If you really want to make sure you get a room, premium badge holders get first access to hotel rooms, if there are any premium badges available to newcomers. Premium badge priority is given based on previous purchase of premium badges. Also they cost $400 vs the already kind of high $150 of the regular badges.

They moved to a much bigger hotel last year so there'll be at least a week to sign up. Or you can do what I did and wait til two weeks before and grab a ticket and a hotel room. It does work but it takes some sleuthing to find people who still want to sell their ticket and/or give their hotel reservation to someone else.

Wow. Never would have guessed that a convention about board games would be such a huge hit!
