Envoy Play-to-Win Program

Midwest GameFest's Play-to-Win program, sponsored by Double Exposure's Envoy program, is available to all convention attendees that play a copy of the Play-to-Win games listed below. The winner(s) receive one copy of the game that was used for this program, not a new copy. It is sponsored by one or more generous game companies that donated a copy of the Play-to-Win game to raise awareness of their products.


  1. Check out a copy of a Play-to-Win Game, when available, from the Game Library.
  2. Find a space and play the game.
  3. Return to the Game Library with a list of the first and last names of those who participated/played in the Play-to-Win game. Game Library staff will track participant/player entries. Note: Only one entry per person per Play-to-Win game during the convention.
  4. Check in copy of the game.


The Play-to-Win game drawings will take place and winners' names will be posted at the Game Library on Sunday at 2:00 PM. Players must be present at the convention to win. If a winner’s name is posted and they fail to pick up their game by 2:15 PM, then a new winner will be selected for that game and posted.

Note: Unclaimed games will be donated to the KantCon Game Library.
