The sneakiest Fugitive shall prevail at our GenCon tournament

Can you outwit the best Marshals in the country? Do you have what it takes to sneak past Johnny Law and escape to freedom? Are you good enough to compete against the best in the country?

You will have to check every warehouse, outhouse, hen house and farm house if you are going to come out on top at Fugitive. Fowers Games will be running a 32-player double-elimination Fugitive tournament at GenCon, with the top player taking home $300. That's enough to stuff your bags with goodies before heading home.

Fugitive is a two-player bluffing and deduction card game where the fugitive is trying to make their way out of town while being pursued by a relentless agent. As the fugitive, you are trying to decide which cards to play face down on the table, hoping they remain hidden and taking calculated risks to get away.

The fugitive plays cards face down to the table trying to work their way to a goal, while the agent must guess those cards to uncover them. If at any point all cards on the table are face up, the fugitive is caught.

Even if you don’t want to test your mettle against the best players, Fugitive is an exciting game to watch. What card did the fugitive drop? Will the marshal catch up? Who will come out on top in this amazingly tense two-player game? Swing by Hall B on Friday at 7 p.m. to watch this exciting game.
