How about to test your cunning against a few of your closest friends? Maybe you just want a chance to pick the brains of the games creators? You can do all of it! No registration necessary, just stop by the booth to try your luck or ask Mat Hart or Dave Carl any questions you might have! All convention long we will be running demos at our booth (3025).
GenCon Exclusive Preview Model: Tater, Handsome Guardian: Perhaps one of the most exciting release for GenCon is our preview model for the forthcoming Farmers Guild: Tater. Featuring exclusive pre-release rules designed to allow any player to test out the forthcoming Farmers Guild mechanics (the planting and reaping of harvest tokens) in their casual games. We’re having such a blast with Tater here at SFG that we’re sure he’s going to be a big hit with the fans!
Tater will be available in extremely limited quantities and in order to ensure that everyone has a chance at him, regardless of what days they are attending, we will be releasing a set number for sale every morning of the show. So if you want to get your hands on him be sure to stop by as soon as the vendor hall opens. An extremely limited number of Tater’s will also be available through the Locker-room while supplies last.
Season 2 Mascots: We are very excited to be able to have a number of all the Season 2 Mascots available at GenCon. The Mascots will be available in limited quantities and in order to ensure that everyone has a chance to pick one up for their team, regardless of what days they are attending, we will be releasing a set number for sale every morning of the show. So if you want to get your hands on them be sure to stop by as soon as the vendor hall opens.
While the currently released Season 2 Mascots will be available through the Locker-Room at this time we will be unable to offer the pre-release mascots for sale. Please contact your local game store to place your pre-order!
Guild Mugs: That’s right, for the first time ever at GenCon we will have faction mugs with your favorite Guild logos on them. They make great tea and coffee mugs as well as paint water mugs. These will be available for a limited time at both GenCon and through the Locker-Room so make sure you order yours as soon as the go on sale to make sure you don’t miss out!
One final note, please be aware that due to our staff being out of the office that Locker-Room orders will take up to 4 weeks to process.
That’s all for now. We cannot wait to see everyone next week at GenCon (booth 3025) so make sure you swing by and say hi!
