The Generic Cardboard Space Adventure was the 10th installment of an ill-advised campaign to rally workaday men and women to escape the routine of their normal day by donning cardboard costumes and gallivanting around downtown Atlanta, Georgia, to the delight and confoundment of boring people who don’t know how to wear cardboard.

2019: The Con in Review
The 10th Annual Cardboard*Con was held on Saturday, March 2rd, 2019, an unseasonably warm day in Atlanta. The theme for 2019 was “Generic Cardboard Space Adventure”, and featured an advertisement for our new Generic Cardboard Action Heroes toy line! This year had soft attendance, meaning that the large number of people who showed up don’t get much exercise. The parade was punctuated by an unusual amount of farting from Chewboxxxa Junior. Fortunately, he was only hurting himself. We are happy to announce that no box was left behind in a crosswalk, leading to a very joyous celebration at the Marriott Marquis. With cardboard availability at an all-time high, the costumes were especially jolly, as were the attendees. As we rolled into Trader Vics we were amazed to discover a competing convention in full swing!!! Thankfully, the organizers of Cornbread Con were ALSO boxplayers, led by that farting scamp Chewboxxxa Junior (turns out he’s cornbread intolerant). We were pleased to reveal our special surprise guest Alton Brown, who was EXTREMELY SURPRISED to learn that he was a guest. It was just the best year of ever, and we hope you didn’t miss it because it was really special to celebrate a decade of idiocy with such fun people 🙂
