Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the IELLO League from last year?

This year we were unable to have our own Organized Play room, so all of our events will be in the Event Hall at Gen Con. This means we couldn’t keep the IELLO League format that was so popular last year. We tried to keep the same idea with the Showcases, where every time you play a game, you get prizes just for playing (no winning required!). This time though, you’ll receive a Player Card when you sign up that has the logo of each game we have available to play in the Exhibit and Event Hall. Each time you play a game, we’ll stamp your card and give you a scratch-off ticket (instead of an envelope). The ticket will determine what prize you receive (from an assortment of promos, prints, and stuff); you can receive 4 of these tickets each day. We’ll also have special objectives for you to complete; you can complete one of these per day. We’ll keep track of how many stamps you get each day by having a different color for each day.

Can I use the Player Card for multiple Showcases?

Yes! You can bring the Player Card with you to both IELLO locations and get stamped.

Are the Showcases set up for demos or for full play-throughs of games?

During the Showcase, you can play as long as you’d like for the duration of the event. Volunteers will be there to teach and help with rules, but the Showcases are an organized space for you to play.

What prizes are available?

We have three Levels of prizes that you can earn from participating in the Showcases. Level 1 has an assortment of promos and prints from older games (Steam Park, Zombie 15′, Three Little Pigs, etc.). Level 2 has an assortment of promos from our most recent games (Happy Pigs, Big Book of Madness, Medieval Academy, etc.). Level 3, which you get by completing special objectives, has King of Tokyo characters, The Broken Token inserts, rare promos, signed artwork, and more!

What happens if I reach my 4 daily stamps?

You can continue playing games and get prints or buttons – your choice!

If you have more questions, please send an email to info@iellogames.com and we’ll add them to the FAQ! Looking forward to seeing you at Gen Con!
