Have they ever considered breaking up GenCon into multiple geographic cons? Such as, GenCon West, GenCon East, etc.?

That might be a lot better for lessening the crowds, but those crowds are probably exactly why the publishers might not want it diluted into multiple locations.

Gencon & DragonCon have gotten so big they fall into the category of claustrophobia con to me.

That's one reason why I have no desire to go. If Origins ever gets like that...

That is a cool tower and all but while most everything fits together... the innards that make the dice bounce seems to be an add on that don’t fit....?  ???

Ha! I was just going to post the same thing. It bugs me that the "innards" are separate.

That's the same thing everyone said on a Twitter thread. I think it works okay even without the innards, but it is annoying that those are extra
