Streaming and Virtual Gaming at Gary Con XI
Up until this point everyone has had to make the pilgrimage to Lake Geneva in order to participate in events at Gary Con. This year we are trying some new things. We will be streaming special events from Gary Con Friday and Saturday on DnD Twitch thanks to the support of our friends at Wizards of the Coast, Hammered Tables and Realmsmith TV. We also decided to expand and try out virtual gaming this year too.
With the increasing sophistication of virtual tabletop applications, like Fantasy Grounds and Roll20, our ability to reach even more gamers has increased dramatically through the power of the Internet. We decided to include a number of virtual events into the schedule enabling us to expand our celebration while staying at the Grand Geneva Resort. Gary Con badges for these virtual events are free, as are the games themselves. All weekend long, we will be hosting games that can be played for free over the Internet, allowing people who cannot join us in person to still join in the fun and feel that makes Gary Con a special event for so many people. A special thanks to Blackwood Society for hosting these events and a sincere thanks to Troll Lord Games, Goodman Games, Hrothgar’s Horde, World of Game Design, Pacesetter and Frog God Games for offering discounts at their websites for virtual badge holders!
Virtual Badge will be available on February 16th, 2019 at Noon Central Standard Time at tabletop.events/conventions/gary-con-xi
