Volunteers Wanted - Gen Con

Recommended Posts

Hey Wyrdos!

We are ramping up for the Best Four Days of Gaming: Gen Con! As part of this, we are looking for some help with various aspects of the event. So if you are interested in helping to teach some games, working with us at our booth, and earn some booth credit along the way, consider giving us some of your time as a volunteer. We are really excited for Gen Con this year and we can only make it happen with the help of our community!

Gen Con is taking place August 1-4 in Indianapolis, Indiana. If you're going to be at the event and want to lend a hand, check out volunteer shifts below and see what times work best for you. One volunteer per shift, shifts will have strikethrough if taken.

If past times are any indication, that's the one shift you're generally allowed to spend the credit for early (or at the latest just before the shift).  :)

There are still a lot of volunteer shifts available, especially for The Other Side and Through the Breach. If you're headed to Gen Con this year, consider picking up a shift!
