My work with Magic the Gathering and Wizards of the Coast has taken me to many places over the years…and now, I can add Indianapolis to the list. Wait, not just Indianapolis, but Gen Con!
Gen Con is one of the largest and most prominent annual gaming conventions in North America. Tens of thousands of self professed gamers come to Indianapolis from all over the world to engage in a variety of tournaments and interactive games, from card games to board games to live action role-playing games and a whole lot more.
For this show, I will be supporting the video coverage of the Magic the Gathering tournament, involving players from all over the world. We will switch between two studios streaming live coverage via the internet.
Not being a gamer, some of this is lost on me. But one cannot deny the dedication of many of these players. For many of them, it’s not just a hobby, but a lifestyle. And I’m thankful to them for making it possible for me to yet again experience something I never thought I would: Gen Con Indy.
