BoardGameGeek CON (BGG.CON) is trying something new this year as they continue to evolve their exhibitor layout. In addition to the TWO full vendor rooms now (70+ booths), you’ll find an “IndieLand” – where people can get a “booth for a day”, and enjoy the convention for the rest of their time. 4 Booths each day, Wednesday thru Saturday – that’s 16 extra booths to visit!

I asked this year’s IndieLand folks for a quick sentence of what you’ll find, games of note (linked to BGG) twitter info and images. Enjoy!

    I really like the 1 day booth idea. A major reason I don’t do the booths at BGG.CON much is that they are like 5 days – and most of those very long days. I rarely have stable help at the booths and so it’s extremely exhausting to do. So this is cool – check me out Friday else find me in the hall to play one of our games!
