Gen Con's tribute to Gary Gygax
The annual Gen Con gaming convention gets under way Thursday in Indianapolis.
The convention, which attracted 26,000 attendees last year, owes its existence to Lake Geneva's Gary Gygax, who passed away in March.
We ran this remembrance of Gygax at the time.
Gygax held the first Gen Con in his basement in 1967.
This year, Gen Con plans a special tribute to Gygax, co-creator of the Dungeons and Dragons role playing game, with a moment of silence Saturday.
