This Thursday will be the start of Gen Con 2012 in Indianapolis. We’re busy here at Fireside Headquarters getting the last details together, making final plans figuring out how to pack everything into our suitcases.If you’re going to the show, you should totally come by booth #810 and check out the games and goodies we’ve got. You can play a demo of “that castle game” you saw on TableTop, or it’s awesome expansion. You can hunt some Vampires, (or be one) and try your luck at rolling dice to escape Bears attacking your campsite! If you can’t make it to Gen Con, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun. We’ll be posting updates to our Facebook page and Tweeting (@firesidegames) during the whole convention, so you can follow along at home.
We’re going to be offering a special during the convention. Both Bears! and Bloodsuckers will be $5.00 off each, but even if you’re not braving the crowds, you can still get the same pricing. We’re offering a special coupon you can use when you purchase these games online. Just click the “Buy Now” button on the games page of our website and when you’re checking out at the GameSalute store enter the code:
Boom! You just saved $5.00 and got yourself some goodness. It’s pretty easy.
We’re going to kick things up a notch this year with our first ever Bears! Tournament. When you come by the booth you can sign up anytime before the Exhibitor Hall closes at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday. Then at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, we’ll take the first 24 players that are signed up and throw them into the lion’s . . . er, bear’s den in 6 player head-to-head dice rolling competitions. The winners of those first rounds will move to the final match where 4 players will try to outrun, outshoot, and outsleep each other for what could be the greatest prize ever. This guy.
Thanks to our fabulous friends at Frenzy Universe, when he’s finished he’ll have a sweet Bears! t-shirt and be transformed from just an adorably cuddly bear, to an adorably cuddly dice bag, stuffed with enough dice for a 4 player game of Bears! That’s right. IT’S A BEAR DICE BAG FOR BEARS! It kind of makes your head explode right?
We’re getting set for a great convention, so come join the fun. We’ll see you later this week!
