Want to help out at conventions? Maybe get to know some of the people behind some of your favorite games? It can be a first-step to getting into the gaming industry as a career (that's where I started, after all). Well, Paizo is looking for people to help at various events they'll be attending. Send in your application and you may just be picked.
WizKids' Organized Play events let players get some cool prizes, including minis they wouldn't be able to get elsewhere. They're currently showing off their Green Arrow and the Justice Society OP kit for HeroClix, including, of course, Green Arrow and some of his friends. Have yourselves a look.
Gen Con can be extremely hectic. For anyone who's never gone, or even for veterans, there's just so much to do and see that there's a very real chance that one can get overwhelmed, having no idea where to go and thus missing out on a lot of stuff. So, save the hassle of the planning to someone else and get some amazing exclusives while you're at it by booking with Geek Nation Tours. Teras and the crew will have you gaming in style. And especially if you're a Call of Cthulhu fan, you won't want to miss this year's tour. Booking is extremely limited and happening now.
Want to help out with one of the largest game companies when they go to shows? Want to feel like you're part of a team? Want to get some cool stuff for helping out? If you answered "yes" to these questions, then Paizo is looking for you. They're seeking GMs to help out and run events when they head to conventions. Check out the details to get your name in the hat when submissions open later this month.
WizKids' OP kits for HeroClix are known for containing some great figures. The one they're showing off now revolves around some of the most well-known superheroes in the form of Batman and the Martian Manhunter. Together, they're taking on the mind-controlling Despero. Who will come out on top?
Hard to think that we're less than a month from 2020. Also hard to think of how I played Super Baseball 2020 all those decades ago and yet, here we are in what seemed like "so far in the future" at that point. Anyway, enough reminiscing. PaizoCon is coming up. It's everything Paizo, and tickets are available now.
Humanity is in danger. Barbarians, diseases, floods, and Cthulhu are all coming to get us. They must be stopped! And that's what you'll be doing in the Pandemic Survivor Series. Z-Man Games has posted up this year's events and games for you to check out. Can you keep humanity safe?
Paizo has a pretty busy October planned, from the looks of the update they just posted. If you're wanting to know what's going on with the continued rollout for Pathfinder 2nd Edition, Starfinder and the Starfinder Society, and what events that the company will be attending this month, you'll definitely want to check out this post.
While the Normandy invasion, known as D-Day, obviously took place in a very specific part of the world, the ramifications of it spread out to all corners of the globe. Soon, all the world will be recreating it as Battlefront launches their D-Day Global Campaign for Flames of War at the end of October. Read on to find out about this new campaign event.
It's started to get cooler out, even here in Atlanta. Highs will soon drop below the 90s and lows might dip into the upper 50s. Autumn is nearly upon us, and with it comes the haunting season. All things ghoulish are coming, including Fantasy Flight's Arkham Nights 2019, a 3 day festival of all things horror and weird based on H.P. Lovecraft's work. Tickets are available now.
For many people here in the US, once Gen Con is over, they might feel that the biggest show of the convention season is over. But those over in Europe know better. Essen Spiel is still coming up, and Fantasy Flight will be there with a special, limited edition of Obi-Wan Kenobi for Star Wars: Legion.
We're in the thick of Gen Con day 2, but that doesn't mean the show's over by any stretch. Arcane Wonders is here, and they've got a post talking about all the cool things they've got going on in their booth just over *points* there.
And no, I don't mean that I will be finding my "special someone" while here at the show, breaking my 7 long years of being single... at least, I don't think that'll happen. No, I'm talking about the popular card game. Fog of Love will be here in Indy, and are also talking about the game coming to a broader description.
Psst. Hey... Gen Con is this week. Pass it along.
Ares Games will be there. And they're going to be there big and in style. They have a lot going on, including Tripods & Triplaes, Battlestar Galactica - Starship Battles, WW2 Quartermaster General Second Edition, and much, much more. Have yourselves a look-see.
If you didn't see the stories earlier (and you've been living under a rock), Gen Con is this week. The whole gaming world is converging on the ICC, and that includes Catalyst Game Labs. They'll be here with the new Shadowrun 6th Edition and a whole bunch of extras. Like what? Like see below.
A big attraction every year at Gen Con is Fantasy Flight's booth. They've always got a crowd in front of their display case, as it's always stocked with the latest and greatest things. This year, certainly, will be no different. What kinds of things might they have? Let's take a look.
Yes, it's Gen Con week. That means lots of announcements about what's going to be at the show. Here is CMON's (where I'll be most of the time, so stop by and say hello). What sort of things can you also see in the booth (besides me)? Let's take a look.
Good lord, Gen Con is just a couple days away. Hell, some of you may be on your way to Indy already. For those that'll be here, Cryptozoic has posted up what you can expected over in their booth, with a look at some preview releases.
Did you know that Gen Con is just next week? Yeah. Crazy, right? Well, for those that'll be going to the show (and I know there's a bunch of you out there), AEG is no taking pre-orders for their upcoming releases that they'll have there. And you can save on shipping because you can just pick up your games while in Indy.
Wyrd Games loves to go all-out for Gen Con. And, I mean, why not? It's 4 days of gaming with tens of thousands of gamers from all over the world. For those that'll be at the show, they've posted up what Malifaux and The Other Side releases they'll have at the show.
They're also hiring a pair of game designers. Considered by many to be the "holy grail" of gaming jobs, if you think you have what it takes, send in your resume.
Gen Con is arguably the biggest gaming event in North America. And so, a lot of companies pull out all the stops and get some amazing stuff prepared. Wyrd certainly does. They've got the new Nightmare Box that is getting a special Gen Con edition. Want to see what's in it? Have a look below.
Well, we're a little over a week into July. That means that Gen Con is less than a month away. Gamers are rejoicing. Game companies are preparing. And everyone's anxious. Of course, as thousands and thousands of gamers will be headed to Indy, companies are showing off what they'll have their. In this instance, it's Z-Man Games.
Wyrd likes to go all-out when it comes to limited edition miniatures, making numerous throughout the year for special events. Gamers know there's little more special than Gen Con, and Wyrd's on top of it. They're showing off the show-special Miss Feasance over on their website.
If you want to celebrate all things Privateer Press, there's no better place to do so than at Lock & Load. It's just under a month away, and Privateer has posted up a little taste of what you can expect when you head over to the show.
Conventions are fun. Wish I was at one now. But really, you get to hang out with like-minded individuals and enjoy yourself some gaming. For fans of the different Battlefront games, you'll want to get yourself some tickets for their UK Open Day. Said tickets are on sale now.
