Gen Con is one of the largest and most prominent annual gaming conventions in North America. The current owner of Gen Con is Peter Adkison. The convention features role-playing games, miniatures wargames, board games, strategy games and collectible card games like Magic: The Gathering. Wizards of the Coast first presented Magic to the general public at Gen Con in August 1993; the game proved extremely popular, selling out Alpha.

Every year, the Vintage Championship is held at Gen Con. And since 2003, the winner has gotten an oversized alternate art version of a well-known card.[1]
