Gen Con 2016: A Glance Back

Pinnacle Entertainment Group at Gen ConGen Con 2016 was a great time—and a great time to play Savage Worlds.

Our own Clint Black ran a couple demos of Rifts® for Savage Worlds, and they were filled in the first five minutes of sign-up! Some folks were waiting two hours for chance. Check out one of his crowds in this handsome photo, including Palladium‘s Kevin Siembieda:

All of the games went fast! If you’ve ever thought about running a game at Gen Con and wanted to make sure you had players, running Savage Worlds seems like a great way to do it. And don’t forget—Savage Worlds GMs who have a game on the books get swag at the Pinnacle Booth. Free stuff and a good time? Sounds like you should sign up for next year!


Catch Our Quinns at conFUSE 2016

Savage Worlds at a Convention Near YouOur own Sara and Brendan Quinn are going to be at conFUSE 2016 this Saturday, August 13. If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, you should drop by the Richland Public Library and say “hi.”

Every year, this free gaming day has tabletop RPGs, board games, and card games. Did we mention “free”?

If there are three things* we can really get behind, it’s gaming, libraries, and local conventions. This is your chance to grab all three!

* If we get to pick four, my personal vote would probably include for pecan pie. Maybe I should go eat something.
