2016 Mayfair Games & Gen Con Charity Event: Saboteur Tournament
Listen all y’all this is Saboteur! Each year, Gen Con Co-Sponsor Mayfair Games has generously hosted events to benefit the yearly Gen Con charity. This year, live on Georgia Street on Saturday, August 6 at 6 pm, they will host a multi-round Saboteur tournament, where only the sneakiest dwarven miners will make it to the end. You don’t necessarily need to get the gold to be the winner, as the prizes and participation rewards for this tournament are great! Proceeds will benefit The PourHouse, Gen Con 2016’s Official Charity. Add this event to your Wish List now, as it will sell out!

Seating is General Admission and typically fills quickly, so arrive early to get a great seat. This event will be standing room only!
“Winter Enchantment” Dance
Each year, Gen Con offers a Saturday evening dance with music as hot as Indianapolis in the summer. This year, the dance’s theme is ice cold!
