Board Game Blitz

Marc Lanctot, who played in the King Con 2009 Mixed Euro Game Arena tournament, enjoyed himself so much that he took the idea to FanExpo 2009 and ran a tournament of his own. That in turn was such a success that the MEGA tournament idea (now called a Board Game Blitz) is going national with feeder tournaments at game conventions all across Canada. We'll host one at King Con 2010. Feeder tournament winners will go on to compete in the finals at FanExpo 2010.

The first feeder tournament will be held at Draconis 2009 in Montreal on the 17th of October from 2-10pm. For a list of games go to:
