While Gen Con is partially virtual, partially in-person, this year the one thing that hasn’t changed is the many online sales and deals that are being held in its honour. We’ve decided to try and gather all of these deals in one place, a sort of virtual Gen Con 2022 Coupon Book as it were.
This list is a work in progress and we will be adding deals to it as we spot them.
First, I will mention that badges for Gen Con online are free. So you can go take part in the online con experience at no cost, sort of a deal unto itself (though individual events require tickets and many have an additional cost).
|NOTE: We’ve also made a separate list of where to find Gen Con Pin Bazaar style pins to purchase online (still a work in progress).|
