International Panic Day 2016

Posted on

Join us on June 18th when we celebrate International Panic Day (yes, it’s a real thing) the only way we know how . . . with GAMES!

You can participate in the fun by visiting one of the stores listed below that will be providing FREE demos of the various games in our Panic Line. You can also host a game day with your friends and help spread the Panic!

If you are playing our games that weekend, please tag us in your social posts with #PanicDay and let’s see how far we can get this thing to go.

Don’t forget we have lots of helpful How To Play videos on our YouTube Channel if you run into a tricky situation and need a little guidance. There’s no shame in asking for a little help, especially when you are clearly panicking!

And don’t forget our special Panic Line Bundle will be available starting June 18! It includes one copy each of 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.


Each game in the bundle comes with an EXCLUSIVE promo piece only available in this bundle and the bundle is only available through brick and mortar game stores!

Castle Panic Celebrates 5 Years in September!

Posted on

Castle Panic Birthday PosterWe are very excited to be celebrating the Fifth Anniversary of Castle Panic’s release this year (2014). In fact, we are so excited that we are throwing a big party and inviting EVERYONE! Yep, even the Trolls and Goblins.

On Saturday, September 13, 2014, we will be hosting a day-long celebration of all the Master Slayers and Monster Overlords who have played this game to within inches of its life and made this such a fun, wild ride for Fireside Games.

To help you get involved, we’ve put together a handy guide on a special webpage designed to hold all the awesome Castle Panic Birthday Party information. We are inviting local game stores and toy retailers to join in the fun and throw a party in your town!

We will be hosting a Google Hangout in the early afternoon with Justin De Witt (designer of Castle Panic and Chief Creative Officer of Fireside Games). Justin will show off some concept art, talk about the joys and sorrows of game design, and answer questions. A video of the Hangout will be available for watching later in the day on our YouTube channel.

In the late afternoon, Justin and Anne-Marie  (CEO of Fireside Games and fellow game designer of Bears! and the upcoming Munchkin Panic ) will be at Emerald Tavern in Austin, TX (9012 Research Blvd #6, Austin, TX 78758), for a live event full of games, prizes, and cake, of course!

Contact your local game store to see if they are hosting an in-store event on the day. Check our Retailer Locator Map for a store near you. Encourage them to host an event, because gaming is much more fun when you can make new friends and share in the spoils of battle!

Don’t live near a store hosting an event? No problem!  You can join us for our Google Hangout and throw a party at your house for your family and friends. See How to Host an At-Home Castle Panic Party for more details.

(Retailers: If you would like to throw a party in your store, Contact Us for more details on the Retailer Exclusive Castle Panic Birthday Kits and inventory specials!)
