What sort of costs are involved in attending GenCon?
I'd say theres a fair amount of variability to that questions
Membership: Varies, depends on when you buy it, how long you stay for, etc..from $40.00 - $80.00
Gas and Transportation: Depends on how you get there and where you are coming from..Between .25 cents, and $650.00 appx (flying from overseas with no notice on a first class airline)
Hotel: You could sleep in a car or a lobby, bathe in the bathrooms. Or you could stay at the hyatt for 200.00 a night..so between 0 and 1000.00
Food: You can bring a loaf of bread and some lunchmeat from kroger or you can eat at fancy restaraunts 3 times a day..so between 1.00 and 200.00 a day.
So the answer to your question is somewhere between
$44.25 - $2,330.00
Sorry, but it all depends on how you like to travel..and how comfortable you want to be when you are there..I've actually done both extremes, going to cons hitchhiking while unemployed or traveling to cons on other peoples expense account...
