Gen Con will celebrate Family Fun Day on Sunday, August 7. Badges for a family of four are $45 on Sunday, and can be pre-registered for until June 19 at midnight (Eastern) on gencon.com. If you have never purchased Family Fun badges, the program web page has ordering instructions as well as more information. As always, children ages 8-and-under receive a complimentary child wristband, and for safety, their information must be recorded on-site.
Family Fun Day features full access to Gen Con 2016, including the Exhibit Hall, kid-specific programming, and the destruction of an enormous balloon castle. If your children have never attended Gen Con, wait until they see 500 game companies, all in one spot!
