Re: if you can't go to GenCon - a game from there

well, I guess I should have done this hear and at BGG , since no one is actually signing up, but no worries, Heroscape is still my favorite game, so best to give to this community. And a bump kinda.

Re: if you can't go to GenCon - a game from there

@Hendal , I've never had the opportunity to go to Gencon. Growing up I always thought that comic con would have miniatures stuff in it. But when I finally got to go to comic con in Salt Lake a couple years back it was a nightmare, I didn't even get into the venue for 2 of my 3 day pass because it was oversold and not planned well by the venue. When I got in, to my dismay there were absolutely no miniature or gaming booths that had anything to do with miniatures wargaming and such. My wife, kid, and kid brother were so irritated by mid day 3 that I said I'd never do one again. I'm not sure I understand fully what you are doing here, and that may be why you have a lack of participants. What I'm thinking is, your getting people to ask for some games that you may be able to get(up to 50 bucks), then you will draw their name out and pick it up for them? I'm not entirely sure what they even have at Gen Con, in the category of games. I already have quite a miniature game collection and I'm not really greedy in any way. I already have Rum and Bones 1, and Season 2 coming on kickstarter. All of the Zombicide game boxes except angry neighbors and the main boxes of Zombicide: Black Plague. Also I am into Imperial assault with all of their expansions. I hear about a bunch of really neat games in the what board game are you playing thread, but already have too many to enjoy. Very cool thing you are doing here though. Very generous.

Re: if you can't go to GenCon - a game from there

Trex - you are right, but I figured it would be 10 - 30 min. for someone to look up gencon new games this year and make a list of 2 or 3 of them, so if you want I will add you to the list - and try and figure out what it is I should buy you , he he

Re: if you can't go to GenCon - a game from there

Hey Hendal,

Thanks for doing this!

I had little to no idea what was going to be at Gen-Con (aside from the Heroscape tournaments) so I had to do some research to come up with a list.

I found some videos by the dicetower guys that previews all of the games that are supposed to be released at Gen-Con this year. Here are the links to youtube. 5 parts total around 60 minutes.


Here's my list.

1.) SeaFall
2.) Legendary: Big Trouble In Little China
3.) Cry Havoc

Re: if you can't go to GenCon - a game from there

My favorite thing about GenCon is seeing old friends. Really, that's the only reason to go these days.

My top 3 wants at GenCon, had I been able to go, are:
1. Mansions of Madness 2ed (FFG)
2. Terraforming Mars (Stronghold)
3. TIME Stories

You're the man for running this!!! Wish I could be there with you!!

I was famous, once...

Re: if you can't go to GenCon - a game from there

Wow, very generous Hendal! I've wanted to go to GC for several years now, but haven't made it yet. Were I going, I'd be interested in:

1. Warriors of Middle Earth (newest expansion for the amazing War of the Ring)
2. Seafall (as stated earlier: legacy, Daviau, naval battles, piracy, 4X - I'm in)
3. TMNT: Shadows of the Past (ahh, I can smell the nostalgia...and Pizza!)

Re: if you can't go to GenCon - a game from there

Dang... This is incredibly generous of you... I know I wish I could go just to see the variety of games offered and just to, you know, experience a Con! I'm hoping to go some day, but I don't know if it would be GenCon or a different ComicCon... Guess it depends on where I can convince my soon-to-be wife to go! lol

1) Dead of Winter: The Long Night - I've really wanted to play Dead of Winter, and The Long Night looks like it'll bring even more to the table

2) Too Many Bones - This one looks like it'll be right my group's alley lol

3) London Dread - Another Co-op Game that looks great! I've been toying with putting together basically a crime investigation RPG and I bet this would be a great jumping off point!

Again, a tremendous thanks to @Hendal , cause this is awesome!

Re: if you can't go to GenCon - a game from there

Wow, how generous of you @Hendal , how did I only find this today? Anyways, I hope I'm not too late, I recently got into gaming a few years ago and have never been able to make it to GenCon, so this is an amazing opportunity for me!

1) Cry Havoc
2) Scythe
3) Terraforming Mars

May the luckiest scaper win!

EDIT: Regardless of who wins, I think Hendal deserves something for this. *applauds* +rep

This is really awesome of you, Hendal!

Besides Heroscape, I'm most interested in the Dungeon Crawl Classics gaming.

Re: if you can't go to GenCon - a game from there

Hey All,

The Cut off was the end of the 2nd. I had no device at GC this year cause I went in on the BUS. So I rolled for 7 people and SUPERFLYTNT won it.

I won the 4x500 tourney and got my dice on day 2, on day one I got 2nd for the 4x400.

I also got given a golden ticket and got into the dealer hall a whole hour early. I went right to the place selling HS mini's and bought $500 in mini's ( under $3/figure, they where asking $4) - then gave about $125 to the HS tourneys as prizes.

Thanks for entering sorry so late in revealing the winner
