In addition to the scavenger hunt (delivered in a separate sealed envelope for each player, not to be opened until Gen Con), each envelope has the name of a game and a hint on how to find the game in the dealer hall. I made each title I was one I was sure they hadn't heard of: Hellas, StarSiege, Obsidian--and so on from there. I'm really excited if they manage to find the game title that was in noted in their envelope.
So, here's the list. I wish I could have listed more, but don't worry--I'll have plenty more recommendations for them:
