Can’t make it to Indianapolis for Gen Con 2020?

Pop-Up Gen Con brings the convention experience to a store near you! We’ll ship exclusive demo copies of new games debuting at Gen Con to game stores across the United States (and possibly the UK and Canada), so you can play convention-released games before they hit the market!

In 2019, the pilot year of the program, we had over 40 stores participating, in 2020 we plan to double that! Gather with your local gaming community, try out hot new games before anyone else, and feel the excitement of The Best Four Days in Gaming™ — all from the comfort of your friendly local game store.

Stay tuned to this space which will be updated with information as to when Pop-Up Gen Con badge registration ($5) is available, what local stores will be participating, what Publishers and games will be part of the program, and much more! Gen Con 2020 will be held July 30-August 2, 2020.
