Whether your passion is dominating your opponents in the Battle for Middle Earth II and Halo, getting lost in a TCG or strategy board game, sitting back for hours watching films or kicking up your heels at the GenCon dance – there’s something here for everyone. GenCon runs 24 hours a day!
The most awaited film of this epoch, The Dork of the Rings, graced the screens last night at GenCon 2006 to a packed house for a sneak preview. Co-Directed by the world-renowned filmmaking genius and hot dog enthusiast Jack Peterson, it is an epic story of friendship and honor you won’t want to miss! Joining their DOTR friends for the sneak preview were teenage filmmakers Ashlee and Rachel Scott, with screenings throughout the weekend of their LOTR: ROTK parody and winning DOTR fan film at the GenCon Film Festival. Dork of the Rings director Tim Richardson, along with cast and crew, will be available throughout the weekend to sign autographs and answer questions. Dorkers rushed to be among the first to own a copy of this very special film, now available on dvd at www.dorkoftherings.com.
The gaming and merriment continued well into the wee hours of the morning! Tonight, GenCon rolls out the red carpet for The Dork of the Rings world premiere. We’ll have another huge crowd on hand for this very special event. Check out www.gencon.com for more information on how you can get in on all the fun and excitement too! See you there!!
