Gen Con 2012 starts today! Here are a few things you should be sure to check out:

T-Shirt Bordello

These guys make some of the best T-Shirts out there. They are high qualty and hilarious.

Booth # 1357

When Zombies Attack

This fast-paced, zombie-themed game from Attack Dice is easy to learn and very fun. It is available at the T-Shirt Bordello booth.

Booth # 1357

Wizard’s of the Coast

This year’s theme is the Underdark, various spots around the con will be converted into spot from a drow city. It should be cool. Also, they are giving out drow-themed dice.

Booth # 1401

True Dungeon

This year’s TD will be the best ever. It is more immersive, will have NPC’s, there will be magic item creation station, and best of all, the tavern is back.

Twilight Creations

The guys from Midnight Syndicate make the best gaming music out there, hands down. They will be in attendance promoting their new album, Carnival Arcane. The Syndicate created the only offical D&D soundtrack (not the movie, the actual game).

Booth # 1319

Fantasy Flight Games

I cannot wait to demo their new X-Wing miniature game (see our article for more info). They have more amazing games than I have room to list on this blog, check them out!

Booth #813, 919, 911, 919, 1107, 1113, 1119

There are so many more highlights, I can’t possibly list them all. Gen Con 2012 will be awesome! I hope to see you there.

If you haven’t heard of Midnight Syndicate you’re missing out on the best gaming soundtracks available. You may recall the D&D sountrack that they released in 2003 (I believe it was attached to an Eberron book):

Ancient underground temples, dark knights, mysterious labyrinths, sorcerers, forgotten tombs, enchanted forests, and creatures from the deepest depths all await you on this gothic fantasy adventure containing over an hour of music.  The perfect musical accompaniment to the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game.

Well Midnight Syndicate is about to release their next album, Carnival Arcane this August. Visit their site and give them a try. I own four of their albums and I play them almost every time I game and they certainly add atmosphere.
