Here is another company I would be visiting if I attend GenCon this year. We have had the pleasure of reviewing the original Wits & Wagers and our favorite game of theirs “Crappy Birthday”. Please stop by their booth and play some games. Let them know we sent you.
Announcing the Dawn of Wits & Wagers Epic Geek!
Get ready for the greatest Wits & Wagers edition ever! It has all new questions, fantastic art, and awesome in-game powers. We have hundreds of playtests under our belt, but we’re still working out some of the details…
Want to get in on the fun??

Get in the Game
We need more awesome questions, you have awesome questions, so let’s make magic together. Email EPIC@NorthStarGames.com with your name and a subject heading of “Question Writer”, and we’ll reply with further instruction. We want only 3 questions from each writer. Quality is far more important than quantity. If two of your questions end up in the game, we’ll list you in the credits. (And you’ll have our eternal gratitude)
Join us at Gen Con!
We’re running a bunch of events at Gen Con this year and we’d love to see you there. We promise a great time with great people. Here are the events (with links where you can sign up):
This a big tournament for our acclaimed strategy game Evolution. To enter, sign up for one or more of the following four heats (there are only a few spots left for each, so sign up quickly).
- 1st Heat (Thursday, 11 am)
- 2nd Heat (Thursday, 3 pm)
- 3rd Heat (Friday, 11 am)
- 4th Heat (Friday, 3 pm)
The 16 best performers from the heats will be invited to a 4-game semifinal, with the 4 semifinal winners going on to a championship game for prizes.
Wits & Wagers Game Show (Friday, 4pm)
Teams of 2-5 compete in a game show based on our classic trivia and betting game Wits & Wagers, for prizes. This event is a perennial favorite and usually draws a big crowd and lots of laughs. We have more than 50 people signed up presently, with space for 25 more. The winning team will take home prizes. Sign up here
Say Anything After Dark (Saturday, 9pm)
Say Anything is a light-hearted game about what you and your friends think. It gives you the chance to settle questions that have been hotly debated for centuries. We’ll gather at Champps bar at 9pm on Saturday, we’ll play the game, enjoy ourselves completely, and North Star Games will buy the first pitcher of beer for each group. Sign up here.
Happy Salmon Festival!
Happy Salmon, our newest game, is suddenly becoming a giant hit. It only takes 45 seconds to play, but they’ll be among the more lunatic 45 seconds of your life. The event will consist of two flash tournaments, one for “loud” Happy Salmon, and one for “quiet” Happy Salmon, along with a few other goofy activities. The whole event will take less than an hour. You can’t sign up for this event yet because the Gen Con organizers have to finalize the location for it. We’ll let you know how to sign up when they do.
