Special Offer: Upper Deck’s Bring Out Yer Dead
Gen Con 2016 Contributing Sponsor Upper Deck has a special offer for their fans, just in time for Halloween! Here is a message from the Upper Deck team:
“The head of your family is dead. The will has been read, and you’re last on the list. The only way for you to get your share is for your family to find their final resting places in the most exclusive cemetery in the city.
You set out to do your dirty work, but never anticipated having to deal with the Gravedigger. Each day, he comes along; ready to haul off another member of the family (or two or three) in his cart, but you’ll have to play your hand carefully. Your rivals are plotting the same thing with their families, and if you’re too late on the draw, the coffins of your beloved family will make their way into the river. With your fortune at stake, you’ll find yourself stopping at nothing for your inheritance.
Get Ready for Halloween with a limited edition gamer goodie-bag complete with glow in the dark coffin tokens, tombstone counter piece, Bring Out Yer Dead token pouch and more – free with any purchase of Bring Out Yer Dead – the ‘much-more-fun-than-scary’ board game that everyone’s been dying to play!”
