Who’s ready to have some fun not being at Gen Con?! 

We know that seeing all the news out of Gen Con can be rough for those of us not at the big show. And that’s what GenCant is for! We’re here to bring some fun and excitement to the masses. So let’s have fun playing games, talking about games, and commiserating that we’re not at Gen Con’s epic 50th Anniversary show.

And, as always, if you’re not at Gen Con you’re already at GenCant!

Here’s a peek at what we’ve got going. Jump in head first. Get involved in any activities that look fun to you.

    This checklist is really great! I missed some things last year in the shuffle.

      You can thank our volunteer, Mike Risley (of the Five By podcast). He’s worked tirelessly to get that list up with photos.
