Folks I hate to hear of people standing in the will call line all day.

So I need all of you to know that we will take generic tickets for all events. Even if you think the event is sold out we will take generic tickets and allow you to play (the Mass Battles being the exceptions to this)

So you dont have to buy say a championship ticket just get $20 worth of generics.


Ok if you can avoid stnading in line please do we will help all we can to avoid that.

Well, standing in the Will Call line is just to get your general badge into the convention. No way around that really. But yeah, bad idea to try and get your badge through Will Call and then STILL have to stand in line in order to get tickets for the events. Get your badge, and then grab some generic tickets. The cool thing about Generics, is that if you don't use them on, say Saturday, you can usually sell them to other people super easy.

What time does will call close down becasue if people are getting together for dinner say on friday I might be able to run down and hang for awhile and pick up everything i need then travel back down on saturday

I think there are tournaments going all day/afternoon/evening on Friday as well, so I doubt there'd be much chance to catch up with people. Hard to say though.

But if you pre-ordered both your badge and the championship ticket, then they should both be at Will Call for you. Even so, to get Generic Tickets usually only takes about 15-20 minutes in the separate line. Plus, the usually have Generic Ticket kiosks sort of stationed around the convention center.

I got my badge but I ordered my event tix too late so where do I have to go for them? Will-call is what the sheet in the mailer said. Is that wrong somehow? Any idea what time they open? I wonder if there will be anyone there on Wednesday

No, the Will Call line will only have whatever you ordered online and arranged to pick up at Will Call. You'll need to stand in a separate line to get the Generic Tickets. So, make sure you have plenty of time to stand in both lines. ;)

I made sure to get a few just in case along with my standard prebought game tixs.

It really depends. There are multiple Generic Ticket lines around the convention center, so I recommend you hop on the GenCon website, and print out one of the maps they have there which shows where those booths will be located.

In past years, there has been a ticket booth back in the Miniatures gaming area as well, so you can buy your tickets right there. It does have a tendency to get somewhat busy though. As with most lines, I would plan on probably 30 minutes to an hour for standing in line.

Also, don't let the length of the Event Ticket line at the front entrance fool you. It often moves pretty fast. The entire queue can be full of people, and it will still often take less than 45 minutes to get through the line.

Another tip for waiting in lines.....bring a friend! You can stand around and chat game strategies, or plot out what areas of the dealer hall you want to visit first, etc. :)

I think there has been a change in Generic tickets this year. When you return any extra's, you get credit towards next year and not cash back.
