The Omegathon

The Omegathon is a tournament held at PAX that pits 20 randomly selected attendees in a three day marathon of games that span the spectrum of the gaming universe. After each round, some participants are eliminated. Each year, the final game is held secret until moments before the final two Omeganauts enter battle. The winner at PAX South receives a trip to any other PAX in the following year's time.
