Gary Con have chosen today, Gary Gygax Day, to launch the new version of their website for the convention that celebrates old school gaming and Gary’s contribution to the hobby. The new site represents a change in the convention, recognizing its growth and importance within the hobby. Coming with the chance in site is also a change in venue as the convention moves to the Grand Geneva hotel.
Online badge sales for the Gary Con VIII, which runs March 3-6, 2016, opens on July 30, 2015, and can be found on the Registration section of the new website. Prices range from the basic $65 for four-day attendance and regular event registration to more expensive options that offer major perks. There are also Spectator badges who just want to attend but not play, as well as free Youth badges for those under 8 years old.
Old accounts at the old Gary Con website will be ported over into the new site. Forums are temporarily down while the process of updating the website takes place, which includes providing mobile access to it.
