Conventions, GameWick News

From aliens to zombies (and now even some Lovecraft), we have a full-throttle SHUFFLING HORROR event schedule for our friends and fans at Gen Con 2018 (Aug 2-5)! Lots of ROSWELL 51 and PITTSBURGH 68 sessions to play in. Plus, we’ve got a limited number of INNSMOUTH 32 sneak peek games, too (that’s the next creepy game in our Shuffling Horror series). If that’s not enough, our night-time Science Fiction Double Feature returns for its third straight year. The GameWick ghouls are going to be shuffling like mad!

All Events Are Located in the ICC, Hall C, Red Tables 25 – 28

Each game session is about an hour and a half. With almost forty events available, our games are running non-stop during exhibit hall hours. We encourage players with generics to stop by our event area. There’s always a chance we can fit you into a game due to no-shows or extra table space.

And… the proximity of our games to the Exhibit Hall is ideal for those who want to shop/play/shop!

Roswell Reports, Shuffling Horrors

On this date in 1951, four years after the infamous “Roswell Incident”, the Roswellian Star reported all sorts of wacky things going on around town. Did the citizens bravely band together and stop the outer space invasion – or did they just become pod people?!?

Only those who play the SHUFFLING HORROR: ROSWELL 51 boardgame know for sure…

Happy 4th of July from your favorite

independent game company!

Roswell 51: GaryCon Memories

May 31st, 2018
Roswell Reports, Shuffling Horrors

GaryCon X is in the rearview mirror, but the memories of those games still linger for many! One that I remember well is a ROSWELL 51 game that had such a spectacular ending! The terror of the outer space invasion mounted reel by reel, until a final survivor was left to save humanity. It all came down to the WAC, as played by Erin W. Surrounded by alien players on all sides, it was the WAC versus seven players! Luckily, Erin was able to score two Horror Stars during the course of the game and this made all the difference in her survival.

GCX-R51-WAC-A

In Erin’s words… “Being the last one standing for my first game was incredible! Larry ran the game seamlessly, and I had a blast  even though I barely knew anyone at the table. By the end of the game, I didn’t want it to be over even though I had won. Shuffling Horror didn’t leave any awkward or empty moments with action on every card and around every corner!” (Erin W., Age 13)

“I Didn’t Want It To Be Over…”

Origins 2018: WEGS Dwarf Walks Returns!

May 4th, 2018
Conventions, The WEGS Fray

We are super excited for our return to Origins Game Fair this year! We’ve got a booth, a Shuffling Horror secret reveal, and a bunch of games on the grid! In addition, we’ll be running our classic Dwarf Walks Into A Bar scenario. It’s been a couple years since we did that! Many Old Skool fans were introduced to the WEGS system with this over-the-top tavern brawler. The synopsis: It’s a slow night at the Tongue of Dung, the seediest tavern in the worst part of rotting Old Ikkspatt, but not for long…”

There’s only one session on Saturday night, so you better ACT FAST!

Borkfu Awaits!
