Mayfair will be out in full force at Gen Con 2015, serving as show co-sponsors hosting a myriad of events large and small. But some events are more special than others and there's two in particular that we wanted to bring to your attention this year.
Both of these events are special for two reasons: first, they're big, awesome events you won't see anywhere else. Second, all proceeds benefit the official Gen Con charity, The Julian Center, the largest domestic violence emergency shelter and family justice center in Indiana. Have fun and support a great cause, it doesn't get any better than that. 
Catan: The Big Game (BGM1576923)

Two years ago Mayfair set a Guinness World's Record for the most people playing in single board game at the same time, 922. The largest game of Catan ever held. In 2015 we want your help to break that record!

Wait, there's a bonus, not only will you be participating the biggest gaming event on Earth, you will be breaking a record and aiding those in need.

So join us in the White River Ballroom at the J.W. Marriott hotel near the convention center on 7:00 pm, Friday, July 31st!

Star Trek: Five Year Mission Charity Event (BGM1582089)
Five Year Mission is Mayfair's latest and greatest game that lets you step into the shoes of not one but two crews of legendary Star Trek vessels!

In this cooperative dice game, players will take the roles of crew from either the original U.S.S. Enterprise, or the U.S.S. Enterprise-D seen in the original Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Better yet, Marina Sirtis, who played Counselor Troi on Star Trek: The Next Generation will be on hand!

As with The Big Game above, proceeds of this special event benefit The Julian Center.

So join us at the Georgia Street Pavilion on Saturday, August 1st at 8:00 pm. 

To register for either of these events, go to the official Gen Con site, click "find an event" and enter the official registration numbers listed above with the name of each event (the two numbers beginning with BGM).
