April 10, 2019: FnordCon Ruled!

FnordCon Game Demos Sign

This past weekend was FnordCon, and we could not be happier. We sold out . . . we capped at 150 tickets due to parking limitations at the site. If we do this again – and we KNOW that we want to, it's just a matter of logistics – we have to get more parking or a bigger place, because in all other ways we could have handled a bigger party.

Highlights of the event included:

• The first public look at the newest version of the Car Wars rules. That will now definitely be a 2019 Kickstarter and 2020 release. Play went quickly, the 3-D car models won praise, and everyone had a great time. Big props to Jimmie Bragdon and Randy Scheunemann for teaching the rules to six tables at once and keeping it moving smoothly.

• The new 3-D Fantasy Trip table, created by Phil Reed and Gina Fischer, drew oohs and aahs with its lighted objectives. Ben Williams was running events on it almost the whole weekend - when he wasn't running TFT on a Dyson Logos playmat.

• Keith Carter's giant-sized Ogre - which he left with us, so it will be back next year for more photos.

• New reveals: the Hexagram and Ogrezine Mark II promo copies, the TFT Legacy character creation app, and Ogre playmats M6 and M7.

Deadly Doodles, an August release, was played and re-played and thoroughly enjoyed. Collect loot, weapons, and laughs!

• Andrew Hackard, our Munchkin Line Editor, was on hand to run several sessions of the prototype of Munchkin Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Over a dozen happy gamers fought the forces of Chaos to ensure the future of the Eight Realms. Much glory and merriment were had!

Thanks to everyone who came – and enormous thanks to all the staff and MIBs who made it happen.
