New Releases Available at Gen Con

Pinnacle at GenConIt’s not long before we’ll see you at Gen Con, but we’re not coming empty-handed! In addition to all our recent releases, we’ll have some materials making their world-wide debut at the booth.

  • Savage Worlds Counters—Help keep your games Fast! Furious! and Fun! with these die-cut tokens. There’s no easier way to track combat effects and options like Shaken, Wounds, Cover, Tricks, and Wild Attacks. Gaming is already fun, why not make it easy too?
  • Modern Minis for East Texas University and Degrees of HorrorWhether you’re fighting things that go bump in the small-scale night or you need to bring your Big Man on Campus down to 28mm, these minis really bring today to the tabletop. These figures are cast specifically for Pinnacle Entertainment Group from gorgeous sculpts by David Soderquist of Bronze Age Miniatures. Female sculpts include Cheerleader, Rodeo Queen, Activist, Geek, and Wild Child. Male sculpts include Jock, Local, Student, Gamer, and Journalist.
  • Bennies for East Texas UniversityThese custom poker chips could be used as counters or tokens for nearly any game, but we think they’re perfect for modern collegiate horror Bennies. It’s almost like we designed them just for that purpose! One set contains 20 chips in 4 styles, made from 11.5 gram ABS composite casino-style poker chips.

If you’re not going to be able to join us at Gen Con, don’t despair. You can preorder the ETU Miniatures and Bennies right now!

Savage Worlds Coming to a Town Near You!Our own Clint Black and Jodi Black will be at Event Horizon Games this Saturday, August 2. If you’re anywhere near Raleigh, North Carolina, looking for a Savage Saturday event, your dreams have come true!

Did I forget to mention you’ll also be getting Charles White of Fabled Environments, David Hardee and Dan Smith of Pirate Press running their Battle for Oz setting, and Paul Coulter of Event Horizon Games? And that there are rumored to be door prizes? I should remember to mention that.

For more information or to participate, be sure to check out their Meetup page.

If you’re planning a little farther out, watch for Clint and Jodi at Dragon Con, August 29-September 1, in Atlanta. While you’ll likely find Jodi at the Beautiful Brains Books and Games booth most of the time, you can find them both at the Savage Sunday Night event, August 31. To sign up to play or run a game at Dragon Con, visit the Dragon Con Gaming Page today.

John Goff Wants You—At Gen Con!

Pinnacle at GenConTo be more accurate, he may be after your signature while he’s at Gen Con.

John Goff, author of Deadlands Noir, has been collecting the John Hancocks of as many Deadlands Noir Kickstarter backers as he can, using his own copy as an autograph book. If you’re going to be at Gen Con, be sure to drop by the Pinnacle booth (we’re with the Studio 2 Publishing booth) and catch him.

He doesn’t often get this far east, so your other opportunities to get your name in his book are slim. As a bonus, you’ll be one of the few people to see the face behind his anonymous profile picture.

So be sure to drop by the Pinnacle booth at Gen Con. [Cue the spooky music.] John will be waiting for you!
