GenCon has unfortunately been cancelled. There will be an online version taking place the same weekend.

I read an article this morning that Indiana just gave approval to move forward with county fairs in the month of July, so I was encouraged. But I guess gaming and social distancing were a little more difficult to merge. I'm really hoping my con cancellations are done for the year. I have two more (October and November) and am really hoping they are held.

For me I think Celebration is toast as is Five Points. NYCC is going to be online.

IX is a fairly small convention in October, I am really really hoping that can take place as the owners are literally the nicest people you've ever met.

and Hoping by November PAX Unplugged can take place.

Gen Con released their schedule for their online event today. I was impressed by the variety of events offered. True Dungeon is doing their events separately, but Gen Con itself is offering a lot of different games/panels/seminars/entertainment events.

Badges are free (set up an account at gencon.com and register for the online con) so if you are interested, it is worth checking out.
