Jeff McGinnis of the Toledo Free Press just posted a great article encouraging attendees of the upcoming BASHCon XXIX to try some new games, one of which just happens to be Castle Panic. As Jeff says, ““Castle Panic” provides just enough to bring genuine strategy to the process of playing, while being easy enough to understand that even the most casual of gamers can dive right [in].”
In describing BASHCon Jeff remarks, “One of the best parts about the event is the ability for players to share their passion for particular games with other gamers, maybe spreading their love for certain titles to new people and gaining a few new favorites of their own.”
That sounds like a great time to us! We hope all the attendees at BASHCon have a great time and may the dice always roll in your favor!
We are ecstatic to announce that Kris and Maureen McCardel have joined Fireside Games! You may recall seeing them at Origins or Gen Con over the past few years as they have consistently offered a helping hand in the booth, generously provided great promotion and retail ideas, and happily taught numerous people how to play our games.

As of this month, both sisters are Marketing and Sales Managers for Fireside Games and are brimming with more fantastic ideas! Please join us in welcoming them. We know you are going to love them as much as we do!
Chances are if you’re a fan of our games, you already know that board games are a great way to spend time with others and that they have a lot of benefits beyond just winning and losing. This recent article in the Sheboygan Press may surprise you with just how powerful those benefits can be. Our friend Lynn Potyen, owner of The GameBoard, was recently interviewed about her store, her efforts in the community, and how gaming helped her son thrive. It’s a great read that will remind you of why we all love this hobby and the people in it. We highly recommend you take a few moments to check it out. You can read the article in its entirety here.
Christina over at Initiative Tabletop posted a video review of Bears! a while back. While the cold weather is probably keeping you from going camping, you can still bring the fun of camping inside. Well, at least the fun of being attacked by Bears!
Christina gives a quick overview of the game and then proceeds to DESTROY Jacob in a sample turn. She sums it up with “It’s really easy to learn and it’s so much fun. It’s really addictive!” We couldn’t agree more.
