  • Magical Journey In Gaming Passport - Play different games, collect stamps and enter the prize drawing! 
In keeping with the FenCon XIII: Magical Journeys theme, we are encouraging you to try a variety of games and complete a "Magical Journey in Gaming" this year! Simply collect stamps on your free passport for each qualifying game you play and complete, regardless of whom wins!  
-- Pick up your free "Magical Journey in Gaming" passport from the game library desk.
-- Play games and have fun!
-- After the qualifying game's completion, volunteers / staff members will stamp your passport.
-- Each game you play will be eligible to earn you one stamp in one of several categories, such as  "Hot/New", "Area Control/Influence", "Co-operation", "RPG", "Party" and more.
-- If the qualifying game's actual game playtime exceeds a total of 3 hours, staff / volunteer may choose to award one additional stamp in an additional category.
-- Once you have met the required number of stamps on your passport, turn the passport in at the game library desk to be entered in the prize drawing. 
-- Thank you to our sponsors (sponsors page here) for their prize donations!
