The Spring Fling Gaming Convention is about board gaming and getting Flingers’ exposed to the coolest board games out there! There’s lots of open gaming space along with a number of demo’s from the SFGC partners! Additionally there’s the “Play and Win” Library, where every time you check out and play a game you get a chance to win that game in the drawing at the end of the convention.

How it Works

Any Spring Fling Gaming Convention attendee can check out a Play and Win Game for their group. You check the game out, play the game, and then return the game. Each checkout allows one group to get one entry each to win the game at the end of the convention.  If you do not have a group you can check in at the Play and Win desk and we’ll match you up with other players

How to Enter

This is subject to change, but the current plan is to have all players provide their name as they check out a game. A “group lead” can bring the names and check the game out on behalf of a group. On returning the game to the Play and Win staff, you’re group will gain one entry to win the game during the end of convention drawing.

How many times can I enter?

You can play as many games as you like, but you only get one entry per checkout. If you play multiple times, you still only get one entry per checkout. The goal is to let as many people as possible play the games.

What about a game like Tak, where you play a dozen times on one checkout?

We assume that all groups will play a similar number of times for short games, and everyone will get one entry per checkout. In cases like this, please keep the game for a reasonable amount of time and then check in, and all players who played will get one entry each.

Can I immediately check a game back out?

No, the game must go back into circulation to let everyone have an opportunity to play games. We want as many groups as possible to get chances to play the most popular games.

Can my group check out a stack of games and then play them all back to back and check them in at once?

Please do not do this. This is game hoarding, and we want all games in play as much as possible. We may also not allow entries for groups that check out games for significantly longer than it should take to play a learning game. If you plan to hold onto a game for a long time, please utilize our Library, and not Play and Win.

How many games can a person win in Play and Win?

Each badged individual can win one game from Play and Win. 

What if my name is drawn for multiple games?

Games will be picked randomly and a winner chosen. Once chosen, an individual winner will be ineligible for further prizes. 

When are Play and Win games given away?

Play and Win games are given away on Sunday during the closing ceremonies.
**this is under review and subject to change**

What if I can’t be there on Sunday?

You can give your badge to a friend, and they can pick up your game for you. You don’t have to be present to pick up the game, but your badge does.

What about games that are unclaimed?

We will make a valiant effort to give all winners a chance to pick up their games. After game pickup has passed, we no longer give away games that are not picked up, and instead use them at our sole discretion.
