Have no fear. There will be an area set aside for open gaming. Last year (the first year of the con) there was a number of people running various boardgames throughout. I got in on a few of those. This year, expect more. Much more. For one thing, there will be a lot more people- they have sold way more badges in the presale than total last year, and they will get more people that will walk up. For another, they will have the game library from GenCon there, so there should be plenty of boardgaming opportunity for you. I know that I will mostly be taking part in RPGs, but I learned at Gary Con earlier this year, picking a boardgame from the library is a nice way to wind down the evening- and meet some new people as well.
