Attendence for various w:Gen Con conventions, from 1967-2008. The data is from the w:Gen Con and relies upon the citations given there. When a range is given, the smaller value is used. Note that the data comes from a variety of sources and is sometimes calculated in different ways, so values in comparison may not be equivalent measures.

Creation and Updates

This graph was created with w:gnuplot. The files used to create it are below. If there is new, cited data at w:Gen Con, feel free to alert me and I'll be happy to update this graph.

The file "cmd" contained the following:

set terminal svg fname "Arial" fsize 14
set ylabel "Attendance"
set xlabel "Year"
set datafile missing 'NA'
unset key
set grid back lw 1
set border 3
set ytics nomirror
set xtics nomirror
set label "Midwest US" at 1997,28000
set label "SoCal" at 2001,7000
set label "UK" at 2002,1300
set label "Paris" at 2002,3200
