Every August the elusive species known as the gaming geek (gamerus geekius) congregates in Indianapolis for the best four days in gaming - Gencon. This is the 20th year that Gencon has been in Indianapolis, attracting 70,000 people.
I have attended every Gencon in Indy, and this have been running Kings of War (and other Mantic events) since 2013. This year I ran 11 events - Learn to Play for Kings of War, Armada and Vanguard, as well as the How You Use It! tournament.
Wednesday afternoon was set up, as we were in hall A this year.
