August 11, 2017: Gen Con Is . . . NEXT WEEK!

Gen Con

The biggest show of the year is closing in, and we're ready for it! Gen Con 50 is happening in Indianapolis, IN, August 17-20, and SJ Games will be gaming all day, every day, at booth 1413. And boy, we have a stacked schedule! 

At the booth, we'll demo our upcoming releases, like Port Royal, Muertoons, Dungeon Fantasy RPG, and Munchkin Shakespeare Deluxe. We'll even have a small number of Port Royal and Muertoons for sale (get there early)! We'll have some Ogre features as well, like the free "Bad Timing" handout, featuring a fully playable Ogre scenario on one sheet! Ogre fans will also get a sneak peek of Ogre Miniatures Set 1, as well as the Ogre Video Game with a short teaser trailer. Speaking of sneak peeks, we are making a few announcements at the convention for some highly anticipated releases, so keep an eye on our glass case to catch a glimpse!

For our Munchkin fans, you need to be at the Munchkin Tavern, our nightly convention after-party, with some exclusive swag and guest appearances. Tavern runs Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m., and features the amazing food and drinks of Tavern on South. Bring your Munchkin swag, or get some of the Munchkin Tavern merch, and get it signed by our guests from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Artist John Kovalic (Thursday), Munchkin Czar Andrew Hackard (Friday), and Steve Jackson (Saturday) will all be joining us throughout the event; find the full schedule on the Munchkin Tavern site. We even have a limited number of our special Tavern Take-Home ​Box, full of Munchkin loot and an item signed by Steve Jackson, so make sure you visit the Munchkin Tavern on opening night, if you can! You can get a first look at some of the Tavern swag on our Facebook live stream; check it out!

If scheduled events and tournaments are your bag, check out our Organized Play area in Hall C! We've still got tickets for a few events, like the Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game Survivor Tournaments, Ogre Tournaments, Munchkin Mayhem, and more! We featured a lot of those events on a previous Daily Illuminator

And for those of you that aren't lucky enough to attend the convention, we'll still be running contests all week on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! Follow us on each so you don't miss your chance to win some #GenCant prizes. We'll also be sharing our Gen Con announcements on social media the day the show opens, so keep a close watch for an early look at our hottest upcoming stuff! 

Don't forget - Steve is part of a panel discussing the history of Gen Con. If you're interested in that, or want to find out what Steve is up to at the convention, he shared his schedule earlier this week

Help us celebrate Gen Con's 50th at their biggest show ever! See you next week at booth 1413!
