Welcome to the #GenCant2017 Raffle!
This GenCant staple is our way of bringing a bit of the excitement of Gen Con to the masses. Thanks to the generosity of publishers, designers, and the community at large we have (not to brag) the most amazing prize pool in gaming! We have Gen Con releases and promos, custom art accessories, and more. Check out the full PRIZE LIST and all the fabulous SPONSORS who made it possible.
And for the first time ever, we’re trying an opt-in raffle form. You can enter for all the prizes with a click – or if you prefer to select specific prizes to enter for, that will be an option too. But it’s a LONG list of prizes so it may take you a minute to fill out.
And please, consider taking a moment to thank the many wonderful DONORS for their generosity. Tweet a “thank you” at them, visit their websites, share their products on Facebook, etc. This community never ceases to amaze with their spirit of fun and giving!

- If an entrant who won a previous prize is drawn a second time a new winner will be drawn

How many “all prizes” winners are there? One?
I’m sorry for the confusing language! I’ve updated it.
That makes much more sense. Thank you for your work in this!
Thank you for the contest and good luck to all!
I’m trying to think of a reason you wouldn’t enter to win all the prizes…
Some people may already own a game that’s in the pool… or not like a prize in the pool. But, my personal opinion is – go for the gusto! Worse case scenario you end up with something you can gift to another gaming friend. 🙂
Kudos to whoever put together the survey. That looks like a lot of work went into it to format everything.
Thanks for the raffle! Last year’s GenCant was a lot of fun, I hope this one is great too.
I love that this is going on thank you.
I’m watching all these photos from friends getting settled in for GenCon and at least I can say I was at GenCan’t.
this is such cool idea!!
we have been seeing all the pics from gencon!
Excuse me. Maybe I missed it, where i can join the photo contest?
Lets test luck…. since i miss gencon 50 :….(
Thank you for the contest. Good luck everyone!
Live long and prosper.
Thank you, GenCan’t!
Thanks so much for the contest and doing this each year. And thanks to all the donors as well! This is my second GenCan’t! So happy to be here again!
Thank you, from those who can’t travel!
Thanks for the possibilities of more possibilities to play boardgames!
A great raffle spread. Thank you to all the donors who helped make it happen. Good luck to everyone else that entered the raffle. 🙂
For those who enter the raffle via the photo contest, does that give contestants a second entry into the raffle?
Nope! Photo Contest winners are selected (not randomly.) Those winners will select from the prize pool… then they are ineligible for the raffle. Everyone else who entered the Photo Contest are still eligible for the raffle… but only with a single entry. In other words – if you entered photos, you should still enter the raffle.
Thank you for all the generous donations!
Thanks for the huge, generous raffle! I couldn’t resist the excitement on a tired Saturday morning on a weekend where I have no time for gaming. Keep being awesome, Suzanne!
When are the raffle winners announced? Time-wise, that is.
I honestly don’t know. I essentially have to run 200+ raffle runs this year because of the individual prize selection. I have no idea how long it’s going to take to do all of that.
That is some unbelievable dedication. (200 prizes, 3 days to decide … see you in 2 years?) Best of luck – I’ll be watching.

I’ve been so busy this year, I didn’t get to take much part in GenCan’t (outside of the still-ongoing Star Realms tournament), but I want to thank you, Suzanne, for all the work you put into it, particularly with the raffle. I can’t imagine the logistics of organizing that many raffles all at once.
Hopefully, I can win something this year – that would be a first. 😀
Well Darn, I missed it! Been checking a few times a week for the past two months and I managed to look right before it was posted and right after it closed. Just my luck haha
Aw shoot, I missed signing up! For some reason thought I had through the end of the day today. Oh well, hope everyone enjoys their prizes!
