Gen Con registration goes live on Sunday

Pre-registration for Gen Con 2010 starts tomorrow.

From their announcement:

Badge Pre-Registration opens Sunday
It’s the time many of you have been waiting for… Badge Pre-Registration opens this Sunday, January 24th, at 12:00 noon (Eastern). Remember, Pre-Registration is only available online through RUBI. Go to and click on “Register Now.” Log into your account or create an account if you don’t have one, and make sure your account information is correct. If you plan to purchase badges for your friends, be sure to update your “Friends List” with your friend’s account information. They will need to accept the Friend Request before you can purchase them a badge.

Gen Con Housing opens Tuesday
Once you purchase your badge for Gen Con Indy 2010, you will receive a housing code. Keep this code handy. You will need it to reserve a hotel room when Hotel Registration opens on Tuesday, January 26th at noon (Eastern). The housing link and other information on the Gen Con Housing Bureau can be found on RUBI under “Housing” or on the Gen Con web site under “Attend”. If you have any trouble finding a hotel room, be sure to contact the Housing Bureau and put your name on the waiting list. You will be contacted when more rooms become available.

Wednesday night gaming August 4th
Join Other Die-Hard Attendees for Games Before the Con Begins. Gen Con officially begins on Thursday, August 5th, but the gaming doesn’t wait. We set aside some hotel space on Wednesday for almost a hundred different completely free games and events for our most dedicated attendees and fans – everything from RPGs to board games to the Stink forum party. Make sure to arrive a bit earlier so you can get in on the action and become a part of the gaming community around Gen Con before diving into an action-packed weekend. Wednesday events appear in the event schedule like any other event and you can reserve a (free) ticket as normal. Don’t forget to check Wednesday when you build your schedule.
