GenCon starts NEXT WEEK! The best-attended gaming convention in the United States runs from Thursday to Sunday, August 14-17. Plaid Hat Games will be there, in the exhibit hall, in a massive booth toward the right side of the hall (booth #2127).

A ton of great products from the Plaid Hat catalog will be for sale: a full line of Summoner Wars products (not the new Alliances Master Set yet), Mice and Mystics plus the Heart of Glorm expansion, City of Remnants, BioShock, etc.

PLUS, Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game will be available in limited quantities! USA pre-orderers have been receiving their copies this week, with Canadian and international pre-orderers getting theirs super soon. We will have a supply at the booth for sale as well--it's first-come, first-serve.

The Mice and Mystics: Downwood Tales expansion, featuring a ton of new minis, tiles, cards and chapters will be for sale, but we have a mere 100 copies available, so you'll have to hurry if you want one!

With limited quantities for these two titles available on a first-come, first-serve basis, we highly recommend visiting the booth right away on Thursday when the exhibit hall opens. There is no guarantee products won't be sold out by the time you get to our booth.

A ton of Plaid Hat personalities will be at GenCon, and there are still tickets available for some of the Summoner Wars tournaments. Make your week at GenCon the week of Plaid Hat! Cosplay as a Plaid Hat Games character on Saturday and Jerry might give you fifty bucks! Hang out at the booth and say hi to the crew! Meet other Dougs from around the country in person!

Next week I'll put up a news item for those of us who won't be there that will give us direct access to all the Plaid Hat personality Twitter feeds. Plaid Hat Games is about to invade Indianapolis!
