Quests at Gen Con 2012!

Posted by Jim {Power Gamer} | 1-Jun-12 | 13 comments

BoardGaming.com partners with Gen Con and Cheese Weasel

We are pleased to announce that BoardGaming.com has partnered with Gen Con and Cheese Weasel to help take your Gen Con experience to a new level!

It starts with integrating Cheese Weasel’s “ConQuests” into BoardGaming.com’s quest system. ConQuests are a fun way to discover great games and great companies in the exhibit hall. By completing these quests at Gen Con you will not only be entered into a prize drawing (last year’s prizes totaled over $12,000!), you will also receive online rewards!

BoardGaming.com will have new Explorer quests based on completing ConQuests that will reward you with badges, Gamer and Explorer XP, gold and more!

A “teaser” page has been created that will soon become a dedicated section on BoardGaming.com for Gen Con 2012.

We are hard at work getting prepared for Gen Con. Keep an eye out for more announcements and updates in the weeks to come!

Went to Gen Con 2012

This year I will attend my first GenCon. I recently succumbed to my addiction and am now fully able to say, “Yes. I am a board game addict.” This has opened up a whole new world of secretive back room gaming and intimidating glances over tightly grasped cards. I just came across your website and am already in luv with it! I hope to meet you all at your booth at GenCon!

I have never been to Gen Con, and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make it this year… but I’m going to try!

Any chance you might do something similar at other cons?

Great stuff –The Gen Con tweet is what ended up getting me to visit Boardgaming.com for the first time. Really great move that I hope brings many more gamers to this up-and-coming-site!

I will be at GenCon in spirit. Does that get me any spirit points?

Great. I will probably miss Gencon this year because of logistics.

Now you’re just being mean. I have another reason to feel bad about not getting to Gencon again this year. Have some fun for me!

Awesome idea! This will be my first Gencon, and I am already excited about it. This sounds like it should be a great time. I love the idea of integrating quests there with the quests on the site.
