Gen Con Looms!
Greetings Lovecraft lovers!
More specifically, greetings from Gen Con! We’re working hard here to get things set up for the big show, which starts tomorrow. But we wanted to take a small break and show you some of the behind-the-scenes here.
First off, each person that demos Fate of the Elder Gods at Gen Con will get a special promo card that will mention the game on Kickstarter and that they can use in future games. Now, don’t worry, all Kickstarter backers will also get the card, so if you can’t make it out to Gen Con, the Ghoul will be included as part of your game pledge! The Ghoul will also not be included as part of the retail game, so it's a special Monster for backers and convention goers.
This is what the Ghoul card looks like, and what they do. The cards we are giving out here have a small bumper at the bottom that promotes the game. This is what the final version will look like for all backers. As of right now, the Ghouls will not have a mini in the game (it’s not really needed - they’re just assumed to be lurking around the Museum, looking for shiny things to nab). But if we get high enough funding, who knows?
As for the booth here at Gen Con, here’s a shot of our dedicated demo table for Fate of the Elder Gods. Everything is printed right on top of a tall pub table so we can easily gather people around and show them the game. We will also have longer demos in our event room 145, including some scheduled events to play the game with Richard, Darrell, and Chris.
We’re also decking out the booth with lots of awesome signage. We have a great spot along one of the large, main aisles at the show, so there’s no way anyone walking by isn’t going to see or remember Fate.
That’s it for today’s update. We’ll be back soon with some actions shots from the show! And when we pass that next stretch goal we’ll unveil what more lies from the Beasts from Beyond…
