GenCon: Pack List

GenCon: Pack List

Since everyone else is doing it, I figured I’d share my GenCon packing list. This is pretty much a direct cut and paste from Remember the Milk, with some comments added.

Oh a quick note, since I live about 4 hours from Indy I get to drive.  This allows me to pack and bring things that others would likely have to go without.

  • 5 hour energy – I have late night games on Wed, Thurs and Friday.  I may need an energy boost.
  • Bags – My D&D backpack for “daily supplies”, another bag if the backpack ends up being too small for somethings, and an empty garage bag for dirty clothes.
  • Clothes – Several changes of clothes, more than I will likely need.
  • cough drop (ricola) – Pretty sure I stole this from Ryan Macklin, but I can’t find the link right now.
  • Deodorant / Cologne – Don’t add to the gamer funk if you can avoid it.
  • DFRPG: Cheatsheets
  • DFRPG: Main plot
  • DFRPG: Opening Scene
  • DFRPG: Pre-Gens – All of these for my Dresden Files RPG game I’m running Friday night.
  • Dice: DnD, d6s, FATE – Have dice will game!
  • Drink (Mixes and Alcohol); Orange Crush, Coke – Putting the “drunk” in Drunken D&D.
  • Fate Point tokens – For my DRFPG game.
  • Food?
  • Granolla bars – Good for a fast snack.  I’ll munch on these throughout the day.  (Food was more of an issue at DDXP where I played in every slot, every day.)

  • iPod + Charger (alarm) –
  • Jerky – Good snack.
