Need your fix of Glorantha, HeroQuest, or RuneQuest? Want to play in an Unfamy quiz show or just watch Jeff be forced to eat vegemite chocolate? Want to learn all about Credo and play a demo game? Then come to GenCon next week!
We have two booths this year:
Our front booth (#501) is shared with Chaosium, Petersen Games, and the Design Mechanism. You can pick up a copy of HeroQuest Glorantha (on RPGgeek’s top ten list of the most anticipated rpg releases at GenCon), a copy of the Guide to Glorantha (nominated for the Diana Jones Award and four ENnies), King of Sartar, and even an awesome new GenCon release we’ll be announcing in the next day or two (spoiler!) there (and you will not have to pay shipping!).
Our back booth (#2535) is shared with the Design Mechanism. You can play demos of Credo, Unfamy, HeroQuest, RuneQuest and more. And just next door (#2634) is Petersen Games, where you can play Gods War, Cthulhu Wars (including the new Cthulhu Wars Onslaught expansion) and much more. You can also buy books at the back booth.
The full team will be there this year: Jeff, MOB, Neil, Rick + Greg Stafford and Sandy Petersen.
