It's clooosing tiiime.
The dealer room is closed and we're wrapping up some of our last board games aside from category5. Thanks everyone for a lovely con. It's been a ride, as we've worked to learn how to best run a safe convention during these times.
If you have any feedback on where we could have done better, please feel free to email safety_help or [email protected] and we will work to help smooth that out for Orccon 2022. Speaking of Orccon, Orccon is scheduled for February 18-21, 2022, see you there!
Have some awesome memories from con? Feel free to use #gateway2021 to share them with us all on Twitter and Instagram :)

For anyone (like me) having trouble Uploading their Virtual Vaccination card to the Badges section, Here's what I had to do: 1) If you already have your Vacc-Card saved to your phone, this will require a frustrating number of extra steps. If however you are able to pull up your Vacc-QR code on your COMPUTER's browser skip to step 2. A) go to the Digital Vaccination website and fill out First, Last, DOB then select receipt method. Email is easiest if you can convince the system that your email is valid because then you will be able to open the page in your Computer's Browser, if not, then by phone, input email or phone, input PIN and Submit. B) For people stuck with phone option DO NOT access the link in the text. At this point you want to QUICKLY forward the entire text to your Email so that you can access the link at the bottom from your COMPUTER. C) It will take you to another Page on the vacc website. This will either hopefully take you to a page that asks you for the PIN you choseor (unfortunately) ask you to do the whole Name, DOB, PIN process again SEE STEP A. 2) After you put in your PIN it will display a page with the QR Box and your basic COVID shot info. Screenshot the page and upload it to the spot in the Badges section of your account on the Strategicon website. (I cropped mine to avoid extra info like my browser tabs and task bar) A side note for Android Users: When you're asked if you want to SAVE your Vacc-Card to your phone DO NOT open it with your default Browser, open it with Google Pay (or the updated GPay instead) Also you will need to install / update Google Services from the Google play store (White Geer inside a Dark Green Box). Additionally when the Pay browser sticks a continue button in the middle of the screen AFTER you tap it once, you will need to do your biometeric unlock to get it to finish. And that's not All!, even after you get the card on your phone, it will appear blank/grayed out until you tap it and do your normal screen unlock. I hope that all of this is useful to someone. See you at the Con
I just wanted to say that I miss our in-person cons :( I appreciate the hard work I know everyone has put into the virtual cons and I believe they have gone well, from what I've participated in! But I'm an extrovert who loves to be physically around people, so I miss you all and I really hope this all goes away soon and we can see each other in person again! ❤
I used to attend Strategicon, Gamex, and Orccon. And at the end of the weekend there would be a game auction hosted by 3 of the most entertaining auctioneers ever. I can only remember one of them, nicknamed Hawkeye. But I can't find any record of them. Are they still around? Or even alive?
A big thank you to Strategicon staff for putting on the virtual Gateway 2020 convention. It must have been a huge amount of work to get this organized and it's truly appreciated. Can't wait to see everyone when it's safe to do so again, but this is the next best thing. Congrats!
