For the 2018 show please send your Gen Con ID number and the email associated with that account in late November or early December 2017 to vig@gencon.com and we will enter you into the random selection process.

This is for the opportunity to purchase a VIG packet!

You must have a Gen Con account to enter.
We will be conducting the random selection in January.
You will be contacted if you are selected with further instructions at that time.
Separate accounts must send their information via their account only. We will not accept multiple accounts sent via a single email.

See link above.

All badges, including VIG, go on sale in January. But, only returning VIGs and new VIGs selected via lottery may purchase VIG badges.

It has come to my attention that some attendees believe this may be a free give away of a VIG Packet. 
It is not.
It is the opportunity to purchase a VIG packet.

These packets will cost approximately $600. 
You can find more information here on the program.
VIG

Please do not send in an entry unless you want to participate in the program.
Only one entry per person please.
Only one entry per email.
Please include your full name, account number, and the email address associated with that account in the body of your email.
Send to: vig@gencon.com

We will be taking applicants up through December 8, 2017.

You get a confirmation email when we receive the request.

It is the number next to your name on the top of the navigation bar.

Is it okay to still send in an entry, or is it closed? I just found out I can attend next year.

Thanks in advance either way!

Edit: I just saw the line about it closing Dec. 8th. My bad.

I went ahead and extended the entry date to this Friday December 15.
We previously had given the out late November - early December as the period so I'm accepting entries through the 15th as that marks mid-December mark and the end of "Early December".

Mike, you are a king among men!  I was just checking on the status of the VIG lottery this morning and was happy to see I still have a chance.
