Play to Win

Mepacon features dozens of games at our Play to Win section. Attendees can choose any game from the table. After finishing the game, they write their name and phone number on the sign up sheet inside. On Sunday, staff will choose one random player to win the copy of the game. Learn more at our Play to Win page.

Games Library

The Mepacon games library includes over 100 games ranging from short, two-players to epic cooperatives. If you’re looking for a game to fill in time or missed a gaming slot, you can stop by the game library. Just sign out the game and ask staff for an assigned table. Staff and volunteers are also available to help teach games.

This con’s theme is “Cybernetic Future”. Attendees in costume should report to the Registration desk to get their picture taken.
