AEG is going to Gen Con 2022!

Every Gen Con we host a special event called Big Game Night. At Big Game Night players are given a selection of new AEG games and seated in groups in a large hall, for 4 hours of gaming! It’s a fun evening full of special surprises and lots of fun interaction with other gamers.

In order to make the event work we need to form a cadre of GMs who will assist our staff. These people may “GM” groups of tables, answering rules questions and providing guidance on how to set up and score the games being played; or they may assist the staff in marshalling the queue of gamers waiting to be seated, or they may assist in other duties like collecting debris, distributing product, directing traffic, etc.

This is a great way to come behind the curtain at Gen Con and gain some experience within the tabletop gaming industry. You’ll meet the AEG staff, and get to see how we do what we do at shows to make a fun, safe and entertaining experience for our guests.

This is not an offer of employment. People who are GMs at Big Game Night do not receive compensation for services rendered and are not members of the AEG staff.

This year as a way of saying “thank you” for helping we’ll gift the GMs with free copies of the Big Game Night game package (consisting of two all new games Ready Set Bet and That Old Wallpaper), our new game Wormholes which will be released in the summer, plus some additional surprises we’ll reveal at the event. You will also be offered either $50 in store credit for our online store (and a code for free shipping in the continental United States); or $50 in credit at our booth in the exhibit hall valid Saturday and Sunday.

(In the event that the scheduled games for Big Game Night are changed AEG reserves the right to substitute a different selection of games)

This event will run for 4 hours on Friday from 8pm to Midnight. We expect the helpers to be available starting at 6pm for a pre-event briefing and some initial setup work. Helpers must be present for the entire 6 hour period.

To be considered for our Big Game Night Team we have several prerequisites:

  • A badge for access to Gen Con on Friday (or a 4-Day badge); AEG is not providing badges for GMs
  • A friendly, outgoing personality
  • The ability to handle multiple game tables simultaneously
  • Be willing to and have the time for learning the new games prior to the convention
  • Be able to stand for long periods of time and walk long distances
  • Wear nice jeans, belt and closed-toe shoes too while you are at the event
