And don't worry Travis, they're back as booth 1257. Much closer to the central main-thoroughfare than I would have expected.
2 - Second, the GenCon App has finally been updated to GenCon2011! It looks pretty good, its got all the maps, you can search events and whatnot, schedule your stuff, looks pretty useful. I downloaded it, but since I just have an iPod touch without access to either the 3 or the 4 G's I won't be counting on it to get me around. I'll count on the huge catalog I get the first day and my handwritten scrawls in the corners of the maps, as god intended. I'm not going to link to the app since those who are app-capable kind of know how to search for apps.
I'm going through the map now, trying to find stuff that'll be released. Last year a lot of companies held off on releasing stuff at GenCon for various reasons, none of them I accept due to my selfishness. I'm especially worried Flying Frog Games will do what they did last year and just have the new stuff for pre-order, rather than available for me to purchase right then. I'm talking, of course, about their upcoming game: Fortune and Glory. Yes, it looks good.
