Gearing up for Gen Con 2014!

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

We are eagerly anticipating Gen Con 2014, and with just over a month left to prepare we wanted to give you a peek at what we have planned for you in Booth #443 this year!

If you are one of the many gamers eagerly awaiting the release of Munchkin Panic, be sure to stop by our booth for a chance to demo the game before it is released, and pick up the exclusive debut of the first official promo piece for the game. It’s form and function are a secret so you know it’s going to be good!

We will be accepting pre-orders for Munchkin Panic, and there will be a little surprise bonus for anyone who orders through us directly. Another surprise? Why, yes, yet another surprise!

We will also have the Dead Panic Bullet bookmarks we revealed on Facebook in May. Who couldn’t use extra ammunition when fighting off the zombie horde?

Fireside Games Promo Swag and New Brand Merchandise

If you are a Castle Panic fan, you won’t be disappointed as we will also be showing the perennial favorite Castle Panic with The Wizard’s Tower expansion. So, if you haven’t graduated to the next level of Castle Panic mania, let us ease you in with a helpful demo. We will also have those nifty Monster Icon bags and new Embroidered Patches we’ve been sharing photos of lately. As well as the special Castle Panic Anniversary Promo Packs to celebrate Castle Panic‘s 5th Birthday!

Only have a few minutes for a quick demo? No problem! We’ll have Bears! front and center for your quick enjoyment.

Check out our official Gen Con 2014 webpage for more in-depth details. We’ll be releasing more information as the big show approaches. Including advance notice of our planned Show Specials!

Games to Demo at Fireside Games booth #443

If you would like to request an interview with Anne-Marie and/or Justin, please contact us in advance as their schedules tend to fill up fast!

The Greatness of TableTop Day!

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Saturday was the big day! All across the world people got together and played games and we can blame it all (mostly) on Wil Wheaton and his great show. (more…)

T.A.B.L.E. Was a Blast!

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

Last weekend had us up in Dallas for the first ever Tabletop and Boardgame Learning Expo. The expo was created as a way to expose non-gamers to all the fun that our hobby has to offer. We saw lots of new faces and a few old friends as we played demos with hundreds of other gamers. (more…)

International TableTop Day and Fireside!

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Last year was the first time TableTop put together a world-wide gaming celebration and it was pretty sweet. This year looks like it will be even better!

This Saturday, April 5th is International TableTop Day, when gamers all across the world will come together to score points, slay monsters, and generally have a fantastic time. We’re going to be doing our part at Dragon’s Lair on West Anderson Lane, here in Austin, Texas.

 

Justin and Anne-Marie will both be in the store starting at 10:00 to run demos of games, including the prototype of Munchkin Panic, if you’re anxious to get a peek, or even be a playtester!

Everyone who demos a game during the event will be entered into a drawing, to be held at 1:00 where we’ll pick 5 names at random. The winners get to sit down and play a game of The Wizard’s Tower with Justin, and after the game, each player will receive a free copy of The Wizard’s Tower to take home!

At 3:00 Justin will be conducting an open Q&A session, so bring your burning questions and see what goes on inside a game designers head. (Hint, it isn’t pretty, but it’s definitely fun!)

The event wraps up at 4:00, so be sure to get there early and join in the fun!
