The KantCon Play-to-Win program is back for 2019. It is available to all convention attendees that participate in or play a copy of the Play-to-Win games designated at the Game Library.
The winner(s) receive one copy (gently used) of the game that was used for this program. This program is sponsored by one or more generous game companies that have donated a copy of a Play-to-Win game to raise awareness of their product.

The long list of Play-to-Win games are listed below (and may not be exhaustive).


  1. Check out a copy of a Play-to-Win Game and an index card from the Game Library volunteers. 

  2. Play the game.

  3. Return the copy of the game to the KantCon Game Library with an index card containing:

    • list of first and last names of those who participated/played the Play-to-Win game and want to be entered into the drawing,

    • a ranking of how much each player enjoyed the game/would be likely to purchase the game, with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest to provide feedback to the publisher.

Note: Please limit games to one per group of players, so games can be enjoyed by as many people as possible during the convention.

The Play-to-Win game drawing will be held and winners will be posted on Sunday at 2:00 PM. Games will have sticky notes with the winner’s name. Winner(s) or family members of the winner must be present to win. If a participant’s name is drawn but they are not present to claim the game, a new participant’s name will be drawn within 5-20 minutes. Attendees are limited to win a maximum of 3 games.


Many of the Play-to-Win games are being donated by Envoy. Envoy is an organization that works with a dedicated team of gamers that love to run and demo games for the companies that Envoy represents.  Envoy partners with companies that make some of the best games in order to promote those amazing products to others.  As part of the program, Envoy heralds can receive free copies of the games that they are willing to professionally run or demo at conventions, game stores, and group gatherings.  If you are enthusiastic and love to run games, consider joining the program today!
