Win at BFGcon!

Play to Win

You have a chance to win board games just by playing them! Each day a number of games donated to us by our sponsors will be available to play. By playing the game that day you are entered into a drawing that evening 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 that evening to pick up the game should you win.

More games will be added to this list as we continue to receive donations:

Tournaments

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:

2018 Maryland State Championships

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:
