Today GenCon SoCal kicks off at the Anaheim Convention Center. The Anaheim convention is an offspring of the massive games and gaming convention that has been held for 36 years in the midwest (first in Milwaukee, now Indianapolis). The local version doesn’t have the cache of the original just yet, but given the population here I can only imagine it could grow to be a significant event in years to come. Even the Register acknowledged the grwoth of the gaming community with
today’s feature on Dungeons & Dragons.
Unfortunately, I can only pass on that the convention is taking place and not provide a personal account. I’ve been to the midwest GenCon several times, but a daughter’s birthday and a seasonal retail job will keep me from going to the one in my own backyard, go figure. Anyone else planning on attending?
