Our mission is to produce quality television and live online broadcasts featuring established and upcoming comic book artists, cartoonists, graffiti artists, pop artists, illustrators, entertainment/gaming artists, animators and musicians that create music for those industries. We will provide a platform for those that create the art and music that provide a means of escape from daily grime. We will provide a social network supported by sponsors and partners for those that wish to immerse themselves in the culture. Our audience will have the opportunity to learn from artists and musicians of the industry and watch them demonstrate their techniques. It is our goal that they will gain knowledge and appreciation of how things work, the history of escapism and its importance in current times. Commercial art and music for industry educators will also be encouraged to participate.

If you have yet to purchase your Gen Con Indy 2013 badge, only one day remains to take advantage of Pre-Registration savings. Pre-Reg will close tomorrow, June 29, at midnight (Eastern), and after that badge prices will revert to their standard rates.

Event tickets and badges purchased after Pre-Registration closes may be picked up at Will Call at the Indiana Convention Center.

If you’ve already signed up for a badge, please make sure that your shipping information is correct and up-to-date.

Catan® Just Got Bigger

Prepare! It’s time to make history!

Come set a world record for most people playing in the same board game. At Gen Con Indy 2013, you will have the chance to play in The Big Game ™.

What is The Big Game? It’s a 1000 player game of The Settlers of Catan® played over 62 turns. Judges from the Guinness Book of World Records will be on hand to make it official as we break the record for the largest Settlers of Catan® game of all time.

Admission for The Big Game is $10. Each player participating in the event will receive special limited edition “Big Game” Settlers of Catan® card deck, one limited edition single player set of Settlers of Catan® and Seafarers™ wood in one of six unique colors specially chosen for the occasion, and each player at the event will take home a Big Game™ map special designed and printed for this event.

But wait, there’s more: one of those special decks will contain a gold ticket! The player with the Golden Ticket will win a 10th anniversary 3-D Catan® game, the Treasure Chest edition, an exceedingly rare, priceless item.

The Big Game™ will be held at J.W. Marriott’s White River Ballroom on Friday, August 15. Check-in is at 5:30 pm and the event lasts until a winner is crowned.
