The COVID-19 outbreak has affected people in unexpected ways. We’re all trying to be careful and prevent the spread by staying home, which presents other problems. How do you stay entertained? How do you entertain the kids? This also affects stores, since people aren’t walking in and buying as much as they normally would.
This got us thinking about what we could do to help. We have the kind of product that can help get people through this kind of time, but we want to do it in a way that helps game stores.
So, while we are all being careful and protecting one another by staying home, Fireside Games is offering 25% off all products on our website. And if you name your favorite local game store in the Order Notes section, we’ll send that store 25% of your payment. We’re calling it the Play-at-Home sale and we’re hoping it can make things a little easier for families as well as our retail partners.
There’s no coupon code needed. Your discount will be automatically applied, and it’s good towards any purchase on our site, not just games.
We hope you’ll all stay safe and take care of each other in this uncertain time. We’re looking forward to when we can all get together and play games with you again. Until then, we hope this Play-at-Home sale helps your stay-at-home go a little smoother.

We all love a good story, and stories about ancient castles, brave knights and hideous monsters are usually really good ones right? Heck, those kind of stories helped inspire me to create Castle Panic after all.
I guess it only seems fair that after all this we’ve inspired a story. Even more fair in that it’s a really short story, since our game plays pretty quick as well. Writer and Artist Andi Newton has penned a 100 word story set in the world of Castle Panic and it tickles us to no end. The only bad part? I want to know what happens next.
We know we’ve got a lot of creative fans out there. If you’ve got a story you’ve written about our world of castles and monsters, let us know! You can submit your story to us through this link and we’ll post the ones we like the best in a special section of our website!
They say the pen is mightier than the sword, but I don’t know if that helps against giant boulders.
Castle Panic has been a big hit all around the world and now we’re able to give a little something to all of our fans in the Netherlands. Continue reading Dutch Rules and Alternate Rules Posted!
