Lone Shark Games at Gen Con 2018

Gen Con is right around the corner and everyone at Lone Shark Games will be there with bells on. Okay, no bells, but we will be demoing, selling, and running events for our recent games. You can find the Lone Shark Games booth at 2735 in the Exhibitor Hall, where we’ll run you through a demo of Thornwatch, The Ninth World, Apocrypha, and more. Rodney Thompson will also be there showing off Dusk City Outlaws! Click on the map to head to the full Gen Con floor map.  

 

Apocrypha is a co-op adventure card game that peels back the curtain of reality to expose the supernatural threats hiding right in front of us. If you’ve ever watched shows like BuffySupernatural, or Grimm then you have an inkling of what to expect. You and the other players at the table take up the mantle of present-day saints to protect the normal people of the world from monsters they can’t begin to imagine.

Learn to Play

It can take a bit of practice to master the ins and outs of being a saint and fighting the supernatural. We’re running two hour slots Thursday-Sunday for people to learn the ropes of Apocrypha. If you haven’t played Apocrypha yet, this is the event for you.

Play to Win

If you know what it’s like to live the life of a saint and have taken on Apocrypha before, this is your bread and butter. At each two-hour slot Thursday-Sunday, each player will receive a special promo card, a $10 coupon toward purchase of any Lone Shark game, and one lucky player will receive a signed copy of the game.

Snakenado! Reign of Venom

Friday only, this is the grand release event for “Snakenado! Reign of Venom”—our first guided mission featuring stories from the new expansions for Apocrypha: The Flesh and The Devil. You’ll be shoulder-to-shoulder with saints as everyone in the room takes their first stab at this RPG-style guided mission. Each player will receive a coupon toward purchase of any Lone Shark game, and one lucky player at each table will receive the copy of the game played.
