From the announcement:
Z-Man Games invites you to join us for the best four days in gaming! Gen Con 50 is right around the corner and if you’re planning to attend we want to see you at booth #1429. You’ll be able to demo a number of our upcoming titles and have the chance to get your hands on new games and expansions before anyone else. We’ll also have a full slate of events on tap for the convention, including the National Championships for Pandemic Survival and Carcassonne. The players in these tournaments are the best of the best and the winners win a trip to represent their country at the World Championships later this year.
On top of these tournaments, at our booth you can participate in a bevy of other competitive events, rub shoulders with some of the best minds in the game industry, and much more.
