While we all love gaming conventions, there's something that can be said for the variety available at other types of conventions. Chicagoland has no shortage of conventions of various types throughout the year. The first convention of the calendar year is usually Capricon, a Science Fiction convention with a different theme each year.
Capricon always hosts a variety of dealers in their Dealer's Room. The mix for this year included:
Gamers, of course, have their own corner of the convention. Or corners, in this case - Capricon provided three different rooms of varying sizes for gaming this year. And that's not counting the gamers that were seen playing in the lobby or other rooms around the convention.
Guest of Honor James P. Hogan can be seen playing Chez Geek.
Another room held scheduled Dragon
Storm games and various miniatures games.
The third room was used for open gaming, where this group of gamers can be seen playing
And not to be missed, particularly in the evenings, are the costumes and the parties. The parties are hosted by convention attendees and by other conventions on a designated party floor.
Capricon 2006 opened their pre-registration table before this year's convention was over. The 2006 Convention Chair, Greg "Guido" Williams, can be seen working the pre-registration table the last day of the 2005 convention while wearing the University of Fandom t-shirt for next year's convention.
