You have a chance to win board games just by playing them! Besides getting to play from our standard game library, we have a number of games donated to us by our sponsors will be available to play. By playing these games you are entered into a drawing to win the copy you played with! That’s all it takes! Each person who plays has a chance to win! (One entry, per game, per player). You will need to be present at 5pm the evening of that game’s drawing should you win. (Some games will be available all weekend, and some only on specific days)
More games will be added to this list as we continue to receive donations:
Current games in our Play to Win are:
These games are provided by the following publishers:
We wouldn’t have nearly the number of games in our Play-to-Win, nor the number of tournaments that we are running, without the support of the Double Exposure Envoy program!
Any games not claimed by the winner will be added to the BFGcon game library for future years.
We have a metric ton of tournaments scheduled throughout the weekend, you’ll definitely want to head over to our Schedule Page to check them out, but there are a few we want to bring special attention to:
We are proud to host the first Maryland State Championships for a number of board games, all officially sanctioned by the respective game companies! Not only are these going to be prestigious events, but they come with prizes! You will win a trophy, a copy of the game to keep, and a free ticket to DEXCON 21 happening July 4-8, to compete in the Northeast Regional Championship for greater glory! Oh, and if you win at the Northeast Regional Championship you will receive a free ticket to GenCon to compete in the U.S. National Championships!
Each tournament will take about 3hrs and involves playing 5 rapid-fire rounds of each game, cutting to semi-finals after the 3rd round, and ending in an exciting final round! You can sign up in advance for a spot in these limited tournaments if you want on Warhorn. The following games will all have hosted championships at BFGcon this year:
We are also excited to welcome the Meeple League, the international organizers of competitive boardgaming events that span the year. You will be able to win a trophy if you take down one of their tournaments, as well as earn Meeple League tournaments points, allowing you to compete against people around the world for the title of Player of the Year. Their tournaments focus on traditional competitive-style Euro board games. This year they will be hosting both a Ticket to Ride and a Splendor tournament! See our schedule page for timing information, and go sign up in advance on Warhorn after buying your con ticket!
