Gen Con 2023 Deals and Sales

It’s that time of year, folks! Gen Con is here. And for those of us who aren’t attending in person, it’s a great time for online sales. As in past years, there are many online sales and deals going on that are being held in honour of Gen Con. We’ve decided to try and gather all of these deals in one place, a sort of virtual Gen Con 2023 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).

In case you missed it: We have a giveaway going on right now where you can win a game of your choice from a list of five of our favourites from the past year. CLICK HERE to get to the giveaway.
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).
