Seeing those pics, even of a greatly reduced GenCon, makes me realize how much I miss it. Hopefully I'll be able to go in a year or so.

What was the western miniatures game? The cards did not look like ones used in Dead Man's Hand.

I'd have to go back and look.  It's one of those ones that could be either straight western, or Weird West / supernatural

for anyone interested, Origins released attendance info






on FaceBook






in a reply to someone else's post





no, I'm not making that up




I would draw -ZERO- conclusions from these numbers given the combination of (1) plague, and (2) October.

We've got some great plans for the wargaming space next year, so y'all come join us!

Maybe they'd had no intention of volunteering the attendance numbers (despite the fact the fact that -- as you pointed out -- they're actually pretty decent, given the overall situation), and only did so when directly asked?  I dunno.
