Gen Con 50

Plaid Hat Games is ready for Gen Con and there is SO MUCH going on that we've got to jump right in and get to the GAMES! Be sure to read it all because we've got SIX major products to talk about and they all deserve their own headlines.

Stuffed FablesStuffed Fables

Stuffed Fables is a brand new game by Jerry Hawthorne, designer of Mice and Mystics! This is Plaid Hat Games' first StoryBoard game - it comes with a 100+ page spiral bound book that acts as your scenario guide and as the board itself, as you literally jump into the pages.

Stuffed Fables is a unique adventure game in which players take on the roles of brave stuffies seeking to save the child they love from a scheming, evil mastermind. Players roll and assign color-coded dice to perform a wide variety of actions, from daring melee attacks, to leaping across conveyor belts, or steering a racing wagon down a peril-filled hill.

Stuffed Fables will be available to demo at the Plaid Hat Games booth, #1537!


CrossfireCrossfire is the lightning quick espionage and social deduction game by Emerson Matsuuchi in the world of Specter Ops. Each game is exactly 3 minutes long. Kill the VIP as an ARK assassin or protec the VIP as a Raxxon agent. Stay alive as a bystander or become a target as the decoy... OR be the bomber and fight for your own agenda!

In Crossfire, there is always someone who has the information you need, but time is short! Quick and heart-pounding, this game can be played over and over again.

Crossfire will be for demo at the Plaid Hat Booth and will be for sale in limited quantities. Booth #1537.
