July 23, 2021: FnordCon 4, November 5-7, 2021. Save The Date!
We've had such an overwhelmingly positive response to the last two Virtual Conventions that we've decided to keep the ball rolling! We've set aside the dates of November 5-7, and will use a similar structure as FnordCon 3. We've received some great feedback that we'll integrate into FnordCon 4, such as a late-night gaming room and open gaming on Saturday (for those looking for a quick game between the interviews).
I'd like to relay a bit of a conversation I had with a friend of mine as well, as I think you will agree that there ARE some hopeful consequences that have come out of these last 18 months. I was arranging to deliver some TFT goodies, and we hadn't talked for a few months. Before I could leave, he made a passing comment that the virtual FnordCons had been a really positive element for him. You see, he can't get away from the house easily, and certainly can't attend a long weekend convention. I mentioned that we had received some direct feedback that folks who could not attend conventions in the past had really enjoyed the virtual format and hoped we would continue them. He echoed that feedback and added that, with the number of folks who might have concerns about being around big crowds now, that feeling included could only be good in light of the struggles we've seen during Covid. I have to admit, I've always struggled with ways to be more inclusive, especially during my time owning Wonko's, so it was GREAT to hear we had succeeded and learned. I think the hybrid show is the way of the future; it gives folks the ability to take part in and enjoy a convention and be included in the fun without having to physically attend.
Save the dates, and be on the lookout for more information anouncing the speakers, vendors, guests, and games that we'll be bringing to you online this November. Watch for additional information here in the Daily Illuminator, on our Facebook Events page, or join our FnordCon email list.
Be safe, be kind, and HAVE FUN!
