Wyrd at Gen Con 2019 Newsletter

Hey Wyrdos,

Gen Con is fast approaching. In exactly two weeks, we will be in Indianapolis, taking part in The Best Four Days in Gaming™. You’ll be able to find us in not one, but two booths, with one in each the Event and Exhibit halls, so make sure to say hi to us in both places!

We’ve got plenty in store for the big event, and what better way to let you know everything we’ll have there in regards to events and products than a newsletter? We’ll be going over events you can participate in, products you can purchase, and more!
Before we get into what we’ll have at Gen Con, we have a special announcement to make. We’re hiring! That’s right; we’re looking at expanding our team with an artist and two additional game designers.

If you've got an artistic eye and want to help us make our games as visually stunning as they are mechanically memorable, reach out to us!

Whether you’re an experienced designer or you’ve got an analytical mind and are constantly looking for ways to improve game worlds and mechanics, we’re interested in hearing from you!

If you've applied for a position in the past but it didn't work out back then, don't be discouraged. We encourage you to apply again!

Head over to our Job Opportunities page to see if you are who we are looking for! 
This year, we’re going all out by creating a bunch of exciting and competitive events for players who enjoy both Malifaux and The Other Side. If you haven’t yet signed up, there’s still time (but not much!), so make sure to head over to the Gen Con Event page and sign up for all of the events that strike your fancy. And if you don’t sign up, or if an event is filled up, it’s worth showing up – as long as there’s room, we’ll gladly allow walk-ups.

Below are brief descriptions of each Event:


Throughout the course of Gen Con, we will be hosting various tournaments for both Malifaux: Third Edition and The Other Side. 

Malifaux: Third Edition

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.

Through The Breach

  • Crafting a New Character's Fate (9am - 11am)Begin to understand your Destiny and step through the Breach by learning the basics of gameplay and Character Creation in Through the Breach: 2nd Edition. Take these new characters and a new Fate deck to any other Through the Breach event at Gen Con.

  • 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.
If you find yourself in one of the tournaments, you’ve got a chance to win one of our brand new trophies, which we'll be showing off soon!

In addition to our trophies, if you participate in any of our events, whether it's a demo, a tournament, or speed painting, you'll walk away with a sweet Waldo pin, pictured below!

You can find images of our upcoming releases from July to September on our Upcoming page.

For images of our pre-release products, such as the Eurpidies Core Box, you can find them on our Pre-releases page. (There are two missing boxes on there, but check back on Monday for what is inside Rasputina and High Society!)
This is The Other Side’s first Gen Con, and we’ll have the entire product line available in one place for the first time ever. If you haven’t had the chance to get your hands on a Rail Gunner or Twisted Horrors yet, this is your chance.

In addition to our full product line, we will also have a travel-sized Rules Manual available for $10.00, so you don’t need to lug around the giant (but infinitely awesome) Core Rulebook around for each game.

In regards to other new products for The Other Side that have been previously announced, such as Binh and Thrace alt models and our upcoming Starter Box, the wait for them will just be a little bit longer. The production and manufacturing process is more complex than with some of our other games, so we will be taking the time needed to ensure that they meet our expectations and standards. Expect to see them on store shelves in the fourth quarter of this year.

Finally, in addition to our full product line of The Other Side and our Malifaux pre-releases, we will also have all of our Through the Breach books and supplements, our Wyrdscapes terrain and bases, and our board games available online and at Gen Con, as well. 
This year, we’ve got two special items that you can scoop up. We are continuing our line of Nightmare Crew Boxes with Mary “Blacktongue” Bonnet and her loyal miscreants and Skellywags with the Brine and Bones box, which will run for $75. Our Nightmare boxes are only available during brief windows of time, such as Gen Con, so make sure to scoop it up while you can!

Additionally, if you spend $100 or more at Gen Con (or during the Gen Con online sale), you can get your hands on Miss Feasance, an alt for our favorite serial killer, Seamus. Plan your purchases, because that’s the only way to get this promotional offer!
This is going to be our best Gen Con yet. Whether you find us in the Event Hall or the Exhibit Hall, we hope you stop by and say hello.

See you there!
