Players are not required to have played all (or any) of the games prior to the Blitz, however prior experience with the games will certainly help a player’s chances of success. That being said, there will be people on hand to answer rules questions if needed. The Blitz is a great way to try new games, as well as an even better way to prove to all your gaming buddies that you’re a better board gamer than they are. Prizes: Our sponsors have provided some prizes and GottaCon has gathered up some additional prizes as well. Each round a random prize will be awarded and there will be prizes for top finishing ranks based on attendance. *Due to the chosen games, all rounds will be weighted equally (and not according to length, as is normal for the Blitz). Games with shorter play times in the same round as longer games may be played multiple times with placements added up for an overall score to determine points for that round of the Blitz. In the event that multiple players share placements (two players tying for first, etc.) and no tie-break method is provided in the game rules, players will split the round points equally. Example: two players tie for second and second place is worth 4 points, third is worth is worth 3, and fourth is worth 2. The two tied players would each get 3 points, and the fourth place player would still get 2. If you have any questions about the Blitz, please email boardgames@gottacon.com.

SPECIAL EVENT – Werewolf, the social game of intrigue, murder, suspicion, and betrayal By Knoll Stevenson Day/time: Sunday at Midnight (In the RPG Area) Number of participants: 5 to 30 Join me for an opportunity to play the classic Werewolf game, when the werewolves murder by night, but are hunted by day. Each player is randomly assigned a role, that of villager or werewolf. There are also special roles that will be introduced as the game progresses. Each night, the werewolves secretly select a villager to murder. If all the villagers die, the werewolves win the game. Each day, the villagers have an opportunity to gang up on the werewolves and hang one. Getting a majority of people to support the hanging will allow the villagers to kill one player, hopefully it’s a werewolf, but nothing is certain until they are dead. As time passes, numbers dwindle, and if the werewolves aren’t killed, then they will murder the entire village, and move on to the next one.
