Nerd Night at Gen Con 2017

Nerd Night at Gen Con 2017

Thursday the Nerd Night gaming crew were on and to throw a big table top gaming night.  The Nerd Night crew were founded by Ace (Andrew Christopher Enriquez) and J.R. Honeycutt for fun and fund raising for charity.  The Gen Con 2017 Nerd Night charity event had an auction and raised around $1,000 for a local charity, the Child Advocates.

Matt Fantastic of Vice Games and game creator/designer Bruno Faidutti were on hand at Nerd Night to premiere their new game, Kamasutra.  It involves teams popping balloons based on draws from the Kamasutra game deck.  The game is sure to be popular in the college party/Spring Break scene.

The good folks of the Miskatonic University Adventurers Club of Indianapolis held a membership drive.  After the presentation and much deliberation, all attendees were admitted to the Adventurers’ Club (though not all are likely to admit it.)

Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder? A beauty indeed!

While Gen Con is best known for gaming, with an attendance of 60,000 (actual attendees, not total gate for the four days) or so this year it is easily the largest Cosplay event in the midwest.  Tomorrow at the Masquerade you can expect a huge lineup of Cosplayers from across the country and world with costumes from comics, games, Anime, movies and just plain made up for fun.

Check out some of our videos from Gen Con’s past including performances from Water Street Bridge, excerpts from the Masquerade, interviews with game designers, artists, and more.  Also check out our Instagram feed and Gen Con 2017 photo albums.
