Play Mayfair Games at GlennCon, for a chance to win passes to GenCon! The Board Game Barrister is awarding four GenCon 2013 4-day passes, courtesy of Mayfair Games. Earn your chance at winning one of these passes by being a member of our MVP Club and playing Mayfair Games at GlennCon 2013 on Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21. (Not an MVP Club member? No problem, it is free to join.) You earn tickets for a GenCon pass drawing for each Mayfair game you play. A game earns you a number of tickets based on how long the game usually takes to play. Play many short Mayfair games, or fewer long Mayfair games, earn the same amount of tickets (approximately, of course). The more Mayfair games you play, the better your chances of winning a GenCon pass! Put your name and MVP number on the back of every ticket you earn, then put all your tickets into the Mayfair chest. We will announce the winners of the GenCon passes on Sunday, July 21 at 4:00 PM. You do not need to be present to win, but prizes that remain unclaimed by 4:00 PM on July 28th, 2013 will be considered abandoned and re-awarded to a new winner.
