Renegade Games Announces Special Signing Event For Scott Pilgrim Card Game

We all have our favorite celebrities. For gamers and other nerdy types, that tends to go into areas such as artists and game designers (beyond just tv/movie stars and recording artists that many people have). Well, if you’re a fan of the Scott Pilgrim comic series as well as excited to get Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Card Game coming from Renegade Game Studios, and if you’re going to be in LA this Tuesday, you can stop by and get your game and get it signed, too.

Warlord Games Previews 10th Anniversary LE Figure

Over the past week or two, I’ve been watching through my collection of Terry Gilliam movies. He is, easily, my favorite director, and his commentary tracks are always awesome. As such, it was just a couple days ago I saw, “Listen you stupid bastard, you’ve got no arms left!” “Yes I have!”
Well, if you head to Warlord Games’ 10th Anniversary celebration, you can pick up this figure and say that line over and over to your friends at the gaming shop (as if it’s not already said an average of 2.5 times per day at your shop, anyway).

Most of you know John Kovalic as the fantastic artist behind things like Dork Tower, Apples to Apples, quite a few Munchkin sets, and many, many, many other projects.

Gaming is awesome. We all know that. What could be more awesome? Gaming for a good cause.

Photos from Day 4 of Gen Con

Well, Gen Con wrapped up yesterday. Today’s a travel day for me. Then we’ll get you back to a closer-to-regular posting schedule tomorrow and going into the rest of the week. It’s impossible to thank all the people who made this show so awesome. There’s just too many to list (and my brain is still far, far too tired, even after some sleep). But it was an amazing show. Every year, I wonder if “The Greatest 4 Days in Gaming” is going to be false advertising or not, and every year, it proves itself correct. The show does, truly, deserve that title. Anyway, here’s the last galleries from the show. I hope you like ’em.

Photos From Gen Con Day 3

Gen Con this year has been everything I was expecting it to be. Mostly: filled with awesome stuff to see and filled with lots of people! Saturday has always been the busiest day, and yesterday was no exception. And while there was a mildly-noticeable larger crowd, we weren’t all packed in like sardines, for the most part. You could still get around to see all the great booths here at the show. Though taking pictures was sometimes difficult. But take them I did. And here they are for you to see.

Galleries From Day 1 At Gen Con 2017

It’s early dawn here at Gen Con Day 2. I… wish I could tell you what happened to Day 1. I swear it was just here a minute ago. At least, that’s how it feels. I can tell you that the hall is busy. But what would you expect from a show that’s sold out? Thursday already felt like a Saturday. So it’s anyone’s guess as to what the rest of the show will be like.

Anyway, over on the TGN Facebook page, I’ve been regularly updating with galleries from the show. Here’s what we had yesterday.

TGN At Gen Con

As you all can probably tell from the multiple times I’ve mentioned it: I’m in Indy for Gen Con. It’s the 50th anniversary of the show and so it’s going to be quite wild. The show is completely sold out! Already, over the past couple days, I’ve seen this city start to swell with gaming enthusiasts from all over the world (literally, I’ve seen people from Brazil, Italy, China, and many other countries). If you want to get the fastest updates about what I’m checking out, be sure to head over the TGN Facebook Page, where I’ll be regularly posting galleries of the various booths from around the show floor. Got anything specific you want to make sure I get photos of? Feel free to post below and I’ll see what I can do.

Plaid Hat Games has some of those, and you’ll be able to check them out tomorrow.
