Helping families have fun is a top priority for The Best Four Days In Gaming!(TM), and the Gen Con team has put more focus than ever into programming to accommodate kids, parents and families!
A family of four can purchase four Sunday badges for just $35!
While there will be kids-only events throughout the full four days of Gen Con, only Sunday is Family Fun Day.
In fact, from the moment that you get your Sunday badges, you will be able to start family focused gaming and entertainment activities: Sunday only, pick up a Family Fun Day Passport Booklet at the Coupon Book kiosk (and make sure to grab a coupon book while you are there!). The passport booklet has listings of special activities by companies and gaming groups that have taken extra efforts to prepare for your arrival.
Explore the exhibit hall for shopping and game demos with the worlds’ best game companies, or choose one of the thousands of activities in the Gen Con 2015 Program Book.
