PaizoCon, Origins, and Gen Con
We’re spending a lot of time getting ready for some of the biggest shows of the year. Here’s some info you need if you’re going to PaizoCon, Origins, or Gen Con.
At PaizoCon in Seattle next weekend, we’ll be debuting the playtest version of our upcoming Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Core Set. This is a big format change for our long-running game. We’re hoping to get tons of feedback, so if you’re coming, please go here and sign up.
The Ninth World and Thornwatch will be featured in our booth at Origins Game Fair, June 13-17 in Columbus, Ohio. Early bird registration closes for Origins on June 1, so if you’d like to play with us there, get your registration in soon. And as always, James Ernest, Paul Peterson, and I will be broadcasting every night from the Big Bar on 2 with all of our favorite industry guests.
Gen Con event registration opened this weekend, and if you look at the Lone Shark Games event page from your logged-in account, you will only see five events, two of which are already sold out. That’s not our intent. In this wave, Gen Con put only one instance of each of our events in the system, but we plan for there to be dozens of them. Gen Con says they’ll all be up in the next couple weeks. So please keep checking back and get these events on your wishlist, because we would love to run a game for you at the show.
Throughout the con, we’re running a series of Play-and-Win events like this one. (This is just one of those events, but there will be lots more sessions of it running all show long.) What a “play-and-win” means is this: If you sign up for an event, you will automatically get a $10 coupon for use on any box game or book at our booth: The Ninth World, Apocrypha, Thornwatch, and The Maze of Games. In addition, one player determined by die roll will receive a signed copy of the game they are playing, or can choose for it to be given to another person. You can sign up entire groups of people at a time, so this is an excellent opportunity to try to get someone else in your group a copy of the game.
We also have a couple big interactive events: Apocrypha’s Snakenado! Reign of Venom and Thornwatch‘s The Unbound Knot. These are also play-and-win events, but with a story that jumps from table to table. They’re about half sold out now, so if you want to play, jump on those.
It’s going to be a fun summer. Thanks for supporting our games!
