Play-to-Win games are just that; copies of the game that are available to win. Each time you play the game you are entered into a chance to win the game at the end of the convention. We have volunteers that can teach the Play-to-Win games, if no one at your table knows the chosen game.
The Play-to-Win games will be in the Game Library, but will be marked as 'Play-to-Win' in their own section. You can check out a Play-to-Win game like any other game (by leaving your driver's license). When you do, you will also be given a slip of paper on which you will list all the players that played the game. Turn in this paper when returning the game back to the library.
For each game, you can have as many entries as you have times played. Play a game 3 times, you'll have 3 entries in the drawing. On Sunday afternoon, each of the Play-to-Win games will have one of its slips of paper drawn. The present players on the slip will come up and will do a roll off with d20s, the highest roll wins the game.
You or your official proxy (spouse, bf/gf, bff, parent, roommate, etc) must be present to win. You may only win one Play to Win game, if you are picked for two or more, you must choose which one to keep, the rest will be redrawn again. Finally, if a game isn't given away (due to being returned as the person won a second game, or the person picked is not available to claim the prize) a completely new slip of players will be drawn.
