From the link:

You’ve seen it talked about on the hit NBC television show Parks and Recreation®, you’ve seen glimpses of the bizarre gameplay, but this is your first chance to see The Architect’s vision in all of its conical glory! Mayfair Games, Inc. is proud to team up with Gen Con LLC and Parks & Recreation to present The Cones of Dunshire™ game!



This charity event will take place Saturday, August 16 at Gen Con®, in Indianapolis IN. Only 33 tickets are available for this game, which will give you the opportunity to play as one of the two Wizards, the Arbiter, or one of the other new classes of character! (The Architect is always making changes, so there will be some surprises in gameplay!) Players will be grouped into teams of three, with special sub-classes ONLY used for this event! Participants will receive special gifts commemorating the event and their participation, and other surprises are in store! And the game will be played on an oversized carpet version of the board, so that players and spectators alike can experience the Cones in all of their majesty!



There will be one other special spot in the game: The Ledgerman! Everyone wants to keep score (and wear that spiffy hat), so the Ledgerman non-player will be auctioned off LIVE at the event! ANYONE may bid for the opportunity, even if you are not attending Gen Con, since the winner will receive a badge for Gen Con 2014 (if the winner doesn’t have one already), and a 4-day badge for Gen Con 2015!



All money raised from event tickets will be matched by Mayfair and donated to Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, the 2014 Gen Con Official Charity. Gleaners’ BackSacks program works with nutritionists to provide kid-friendly, shelf-stable food for kids in grades K-6 in challenged economic situations. Mayfair will also be collecting appropriate canned food at the event as well as cash donations, with a special Cones of Dunshire item for everyone who contributes.



This event (BGM1466786 for Gen Con attendees) is limited to 33 players, with tickets costing $100. Check-in for the event will start at 7 pm on Georgia St. (just outside the Indiana Convention Center, the home of Gen Con). Questions about the event, or requests for registered players who would like to play together as a team, should be directed to gencon@mayfairgames.com.



Will you brave the Doom deck? Will you sheathe or unsheathe the Cone of Decision? Will your resource gems rule the day, or will the dreaded Teuber spell strike? All of this will be discovered at Gen Con with the Cones of Dunshire charity event!

Sold out. I should probably be grateful.

I wonder if I'll still be able to buy some cone covers?

Now here's a bit that wasn't widely known about. There were two Ledgerman hats. One for the auction winner and one that we passed around for selfies. There were two gentlemen that were bidding on the hat.

After the auction was over, the loser of the bid went to Larry Roznai and asked what they were going to do with the other hat. Larry said "Probably nothing." The other gent asked if he could buy that one, instead. Larry told him yes and figured since everything else started at $100, that he could buy it for that. The man said "I'll give you $300."

Never underestimate the generosity of gamers.
