Gen Con 2018: Booth 2455

Posted on
Gen-Con-2018

Planning for Gen Con always feels a little bit like planning for a wedding. You worry about every little detail, but at the end as long as you marry up happy gamers with fun games that you’ve proudly raised and sent off into the world, you’ve done your job.

 

This year is no exception. We are excited this year to show you Remnants and Grackles. Drop by and hang out with us in booth 2455. We’ll have fun showing you our new games, showing you the promo for Remnants, and offering you some special convention deals. We’ll even have limited quantities of both Remnants and Grackles available for sale.

 

Demos: If you are looking to try out our new games, Remnants and Grackles, we can set you up. We’ll also have demos of Hotshots, Kaiju Crush, Castle Panic with The Wizard’s Tower, and Here, Kitty, Kitty! going.

 

Promos: With a purchase of any game, you’ll receive a free promo. We have the special Giant Scorpion promo card for Remnants. You can also simply buy a promo if you already own the game.

 

Pin Bazaar: This year we’re participating in the Pin Bazaar! Fans of Castle Panic will love the Monster Face pin we’ve designed. We do have limited quantities, so make sure you get yours early.

Deals: In addition to all of the games in our catalog, we will have a special discount bin where you can pick up games before they go out of stock.

 

We’re so excited to see you there! Safe travels!

Panic Line Bundle with Exclusive Promos

Posted on

Have you been considering picking up the Panic Line? Want to try all the different variations for the unique experiences they provide, but don’t know which one to start with? Well, we’ve got you covered with the special Panic Line bundle coming June 18!

panic-line-bundle-image

The Panic Line Bundle will include one copy of each of the Panic Line variations currently available from Fireside Games: Castle Panic®, Dead Panic®, and Munchkin® Panic®.* Each of these variations offers a different set of objectives and gameplay twists for a variety of game play experiences each time you sit down at the game table.

As a special bonus to this bundle (which is already being offered at a great value of $99.95 MSRP for all three games), each game comes with an EXCLUSIVE promo piece only available in this bundle!

You can get the “Laser Sight” for Dead Panic®, the “Potion of Mwahahahaha” for Munchkin® Panic®, and the special “Promo Tower” for Castle Panic® that was only available in 2015 as part of TableTop Day!

These bundles will be available starting on June 18 to help celebrate International Panic Day and will only be available through brick and mortar retail game stores. Let your Friendly Local Game Store know you want one so they can put in their orders today!

A little Panic can be a good thing, and A LOT of Panic can be a GREAT thing… when it comes to games, that is!

Find a Friendly Local Game Store near you with our handy Store Locator map!

*Star TrekTM Panic® is not included in this bundle. It will be released by USAopoly in late June. For even more ways to Panic, check out these expansions to Castle Panic®: The Wizard’s Tower, and The Dark Titan.

There is a crispness in the air and something whispers on the wind. Fall approaches, as does the witching hour. We invite you to join us as we bring The Village Crone to game stores across New England with the Something Wicked Tour!

Our newest game is full of spell-casting and witchy fun, and releases in September. We are hitting the road to traverse the Northeast United States, teaching new witches how to play and visiting some spooky places along the way.

Anne-Marie De Witt (designer of The Village Crone) and Justin De Witt (co-owner of Fireside Games) will be making the following stops to demo The Village Crone, talk about game design, share promos for the game, and generally be enchanting! We hope to see you along the way.

Posted on

Inquiring minds want to know. What presence will Munchkin Panic have at GenCon next week? Let us count the ways…

1) Demos! We will be running two demo tables of Munchkin Panic in our booth (#443) all four days. You’ll be able to sit down and play the game. We will also have copies of the Munchkin Panic –A Peek Under the Helmet” books we shared in a recent video for you to peruse if the tables are full when you venture by.

2) Contest! You can enter our daily contest to win one of four advance copies we will be giving away during the show. We will have a jar filled with game components and themed items. You will fill out an Entry Card with your Guess of the quantity in the jar. The closest guess to the actual number wins a copy of Munchkin Panic! The jar contents will change every day. Guesses can be entered between 10 am–2 pm each day with the winners being announced at 5 pm on Thursday through Saturday, and at 3:30 pm on Sunday. Read the Official Rules for more information.

3) Promo Piece! We will be debuting the first Munchkin Panic promo piece–Instant Gratification. Come by and pick one up for use in the game!

4) Pre-Orders! We will be taking pre-orders at the show. Every pre-order made with us will receive an Exclusive “Master Munchkin” 2.25 inch pin back button. Games will be shipped in late September/ early October to coincide with the official release on October 8.

5) Special Event! Our friends at Steve Jackson Games are again hosting the Munchkin Tavern and have kindly included Anne-Marie De Witt (designer of Munchkin Panic) and Justin De Witt (designer of Castle Panic) as the Celebrity Dinner guests on Friday night, August 15. Stop by booth #1401 on Friday, August 15, at 10 am to get a wristband for your chance to spin their prize wheel and win a seat at the table!

We hope you stop by to see us in our booth (#443) and we look forward to playing Munchkin Panic with you!
