June 2019 Newsletter - Gen Con is Near!

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Hey Wyrdos,

The Best Four Days in Gaming™ is just around the corner. From August 1st to the 4th, you'll be able to find us at Gen Con in the Indiana Convention Center. We hope to see you there!

In this newsletter, we’ll be covering our June releases, our Gen Con Events, and more.
We’re going all out for this year’s Gen Con, starting with a jam-packed Event schedule. Whether you play Malifaux, Through the Breach, The Other Side, Darkness Comes Rattling, or just like to paint our awesome miniatures, there will be something Wyrd for you to look forward to in the event hall.

Each Tournament will have a prize for those who walk away victorious. Our other Events will offer coupons, Fate Decks, adventures, and more. Regardless of which Event(s) you'd like to take part in, you won't be walking away emptyhanded!

You can now sign up for our Events by visiting the Gen Con website.

Below are brief descriptions of each Event:

Daily Events

Every day at Gen Con, we are going to be running a few recurring events* so that players can get their "Faux Fix" at their own leisure. *Sunday's event schedule may vary.

Hobby

  • A Dash of Color (11am - 1pm) (3pm - 5pm) (7pm - 9pm): Come join Wyrd Games for our take on a speed painting event! All skill levels welcome. In each event, all participants will be provided with the same model (a different model for each event!) and will have to fully paint it within the time allotted. Judges for each event will decide the winner, who will walk away with a special prize! All participants will at least walk away with the model they painted. All models will be pre-built and pre-primed before the show.
Make sure to sign up for any Events that you're interested in now, as they're selling out quick!
It is because of our incredible community that we are able to take part in conventions like Gen Con, and it’s their love of our games that keeps us coming back. So if we are to make this year’s Gen Con the best yet, we need our community’s help!

If you are planning on making a trip to Gen Con this year, consider volunteering. Whether you’re interested in teaching games, running Events, or helping us around the booth, visit our volunteer schedule to sign up!
If you hadn’t already heard (how’s that rock that you’re living under treating you?), Malifaux Third Edition is launching June 28th!
