We are getting so excited for Gen Con! It's just a few weeks away now! We're going down our checklist and making sure everything is all set:

✅ Booth banners printed

But our next ☑️ on our to-do list is to make this handy guide so you knew exactly what we have going on at the show, and how you can participate!

Demo games at booth #2109
Get a feel for the rules and components!

Come say hi at booth #2109! We'll have multiple tables of all these games, giving quick overviews of the rules so you can get a feel of the gameplay. Try them all!

Pre-order your must-haves
Reserve a copy before they sell out!

We've opened up pre-orders on our website for our 6 new Gen Con releases! No need to pre-pay, simply place your order online and swing by Booth #2109 with a photo I.D. to pay and pick up your games!

There are LIMITED quantities of each game, so this process guarantees you can get the game(s) you are most excited about. However please pick up your order before Noon on Saturday (Aug 6), so that we can sell the games to other excited fans before the show ends.
