GameFor will help direct its app user-base to Friendly Local Game Stores (FLGS) for Gen Con Pop-Up events (see “‘Pop-Up Gen Con’ Brings Convention to FLGS”). The GameFor App, an online platform that connects gamers with stores (see “New App Connects Gamers to In-Store Events”), will point gamers to 40 selected stores where they will be able to play pre-release copies of featured games provided by Alliance Game Distributors in partnership with Gen Con LLC. For the first year of the promotion, GameFor app will have visual call-outs for game event listings to help gamers find the events easier. These host stores will benefit from the online app presence and being able to provide a small sampling of the games premiering at Gen Con.

“GameFor offers a unique and easy-to-use tool for finding local gaming events at FLGS, and we’re excited to partner with the GameFor team to bring greater awareness to our Pop-Up Gen Con pilot program this year by featuring our events on their platform,” according to Gen Con spokesperson Jackie Miserany.
