INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The final day of the world’s longest running gaming convention focused on families.

Sunday was Family Day at Gen Con in downtown Indianapolis.

Families of four got in for a discounted rate. Organizers said that helped encourage first timers to check out the event.

A special area was created to introduce the young and the young at heart to gaming.

“It’s not a show that has to put on a brand new something to draw people, it just draws people because they just, they have a passion for gaming and gaming changes. It changes with who you play with, it changes with expansion packs yet the essence of gaming stays the same,” Stacia Kirby, a Gen Con representative.

Gen Con is contracted to return to Indianapolis every year through 2020. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
