We’re thrilled to attend the golden anniversary of Gen Con, a historic year for a historic gaming convention! Every year we’re given the opportunity to connect with so many fans and fellow travelers in the games industry, and 2017 should be no exception since we have so many good things planned.
We’re celebrating a milestone of our own – the 10th anniversary of The Red Dragon Inn! Time sure flies when you’re making games.
Come see us at booth #1849!
Our newest expansion attends with us!
We’ll have our latest and most sinister expansion for The Red Dragon Inn series available in limited quantities this Gen Con! Come to our booth (#1849) and give our four newest, villain-est Red Dragon Inn characters a test drive!
You can also get a taste of our new Boss Mode and Team Play variants at our demo tables – then take the experience home for your game group!
The Red Dragon Inn 6: Villains is slated for a full retail release in September.
Learn to Play
Our experienced and friendly SlugCrew are running several Learn to Play events over the course of the convention! We’ll be giving short introductory demos at our booth, but if you want a taste of the whole game, go to the Gen Con events page and search ‘Battle for Greyport!’
Nate Heiss, one of the designers of Battle for Greyport, will also be running four of these learn to play events himself, if you want some inside-and-out expertise on your side!
We’ve done our best to make sure there are enough event slots to fit into as many attendees’ schedules as possible, so please give the event finder a quick search and buy your event tickets (or earmark your generics..) soon!
Time loops? Hmmm..
Two words say it all! Doppelganger. Tournament! Participants in this tournament play to find out who is the REAL Chronos, Fiona, Zot, Eve and so on in single-character starting tables – and THEN they play to find out who’s the best in a series of elimination rounds. The tournament is on Saturday at 7pm!
Since the Doppelganger Tournament is such a fan-favorite, there aren’t many tickets left – if you want to participate, please go to https://www.gencon.com/events/104133 and buy your tickets ASAP!
Crack open a Blud Light
This Gen Con is the first chance SlugFans have to get a copy of Blud Lite, the new Vampire-themed convention promo card celebrating the release of The Red Dragon Inn 6 over the 2017 and 2018 convention season!
In the past we’ve had Gen Con specific promos to give away at our booth that maybe ended up someplace else (like the BGG store) later on. We plan to attend more conventions than usual this year, and we’ll be bringing these with us to each of them until Gen Con 2018, when we’ll ‘reset’ to a new year and a new promo.
That’s all for SlugFest news at Gen Con. We hope you all have a great show!
