How do I search events?

It appears as if the search interface for events has changed. How can I search for boardgames on Friday for example? Is there a way to filter for what you are looking for instead of having to input a keyword?

The only choices I see are age restrictions, event happened or not, and experience level.

Click on the red filter button.

Thanks for the tip! Last time I tried that particular button, nothing happened. This time it works!

I wish that you could add to the filters like last year.  Unless I'm doing it wrong, you cant narrow it down by game system.  If I only want to find pathfinder events, I have to look through the 3000+rpg events to find them.  This made it very difficult to search for events.  Someone posted their own searchable event catalog that I used this year.  Please GenCon, fix this for next year!

Can you not select that under "Game"?

Yeah, I'm an idiot, just figured it out.  

Sorry everyone.

Is there any way to narrow it down by time?

If you click on the filter icon immediately to the left of the search field, both Day and Start Time are options to filter by.
