Dave Bailey’s Master of Games Tournaments

Dave Bailey's 3rd annual Master of Games tournaments! You have the opportunity to prove your mastery in FOUR Master of Games tournaments. You can enter one or more tournaments.

Prizes will be awarded to the Master of each tournament. This year SaltCON will be providing “SaltCON Master of Games” plaques for the winners.

Additionally, there will be a “SaltCON Grandmaster of Games” plaque awarded to the person who performs best in all Master of Games tournaments. To qualify for the grandmaster award, you must play in at least two Master of Games tournaments. However, the more Master of Games tournaments you play in, the better your chance of becoming the Grandmaster of Games!

There will only be 16 seats available in each tournament, on a first-come, first-serve basis. So be sure to sign up and reserve your place. You, too, can be a Master of Games!

Dave Bailey’s Master of Games tournaments are not for those who are not familiar with the board games in the tournaments—please be familiar with each of the board games in the tournament you are participating in.
