Make history with us at Gen Con 2015! In 2013 we set the world record for the most people playing the Settlers of Catan simultaneously. This year, on Friday, July 31st, you have the chance to play in The Big Game ™ again, or for the first time in an attempt to break our previous record of 922 people. What is The Big Game? It’s a giant game of Catan played from start to the finish – to 25 points. Judges from the Guinness World Records will be on hand to make it official as we break our previous record. Admission price for The Big Game will be $26. But the rewards far outweigh the cost and you’ll be part of history! This year’s Big Game is also a Charity Event supporting this year’s Gen Con Charity partner, The Julian Center. The center supports victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other life crises. Plus each player participating in the event will receive special limited edition “Big Game” Catan® t-shirt, card deck, and a Big Game map special printed for this event. Gen Con Event ID: BGM1576923
