Twelve hundred tickets to The Game were sold Monday. Only 600 tickets were sold on the first day of sales two years ago, said Jeremy Makins, director of ticket operations.

Want to come to Inferno, mom? Family Weekend will fall on the weekend leading up to Halloween next year. The actual holiday will fall on a Monday, however.
