Licensee Spotlight: Dog House Rules

With Gen Con behind us, another big media event, Shark Week, just wrapped up its 31st year, as well!

What a coincidence then, that Ace licensee Dog House Rules has TWO exciting new releases for Trailer Park Shark Attack now on DriveThruRPG!

Trailer Park Shark Attack is a disaster shark adventure designed for use with Savage Worlds. This three-scenario adventure comes with printable tabletop maps, paper-shark minis, and 24 pre-generated character cards ready for printing and assembling the character deck.

First up, there’s the SWADE-upgraded version of the adventure allowing fans to get their hands on the new, completely updated version for Savage Worlds Adventure Edition! This download also includes the original Savage Worlds Deluxe version.

DHR has also released its very first supplement for Trailer Park Shark Attack, Parker Pack #1 which includes eight new pre-generated characters for the TPSA character card deck. Add or substitute these character cards to the game deck — either way, fresh meat for the sharks and more variety for the players.

Visit the trailer park today… but don’t forget your shark repellent!

It’s Time for Gen Con 2019!

Once again, it’s time for Gen Con (The Best Four Days in Gaming™), and as always, both Savage Worlds and Doomtown will be well-represented! (For complete Doomtown details, check out last week’s article, Doomtown Takes on Gen Con 2019.)

Wednesday evening, kick things off at The 16th Annual Stink in Union Station’s Grand Hall. There, Jodi Black (Chief Operations Officer and Managing Editor for Pinnacle Entertainment Group) and Clint Black (Savage Worlds Core Rules Brand Manager) will be running fast and furious demo games of the new Savage Worlds core rules, and giving away $5 coupons for use in the Pinnacle online store. As Clint and Jodi are also representing their own company, Carolina Game Tables, these short demos will be run on their counter-height Kitchen Game Table, so they should be easy to spot! Please note that you do not need a ticket to attend The Stink.

Thursday morning, make your way into the Exhibit Hall to visit Studio 2 Publishing in booths 1929 and 2029. There you’ll find Savage Worlds box sets, core rulebooks, supplements, and accessories including dice, Bennies, miniatures, and more. You’ll also find Doomtown base sets and all the latest expansions including pre-release copies of Out for Blood!

Close by, Jodi and Clint will be at the Carolina Game Tables booth (1953) showing their new “5×5” prototype table and answering all your Savage Worlds questions.

And finally, not only are our friends with Saving Throw hosting a FREE meetup for fans at the Sheraton Indianapolis City Centre, Thursday night at 7pm, be sure to grab a ticket for their East Texas University WildCards Live Show, on Saturday from 4 to 6pm!

Doomtown Takes on Gen Con 2019

Good Intentions, amigos!

Next Wednesday, start your Gen Con off with a bang at the Pine Box Meet & Greet from 3pm to 7pm at Kilroy’s Downtown Indy. Meet the Pine Box Entertainment team (including David and Christine Lapp, designer Rich Carter, and card layout maestro, Thomas Goodnow), and enjoy a few games of Doomtown.

Immediately following the Meet & Greet, the action moves to the Hyatt Regency for The 4th Annual Hogkillin’ Time Bicycle Rally. From 7pm to 11pm, Pine Box Entertainment once again presents this annual Doomtown gathering. Bring a Bicycle deck and join us for multiplayer, meet the team, and check out new projects on the horizon!

Thursday afternoon at 2pm, swing by Green Tables 1 through 3 in Hall D for Showdown at the Clanton Ranch! This new multiplayer variant event for Doomtown places the participants at the height of the conflict at the Clanton Ranch in Tombstone, that will be featured in an upcoming fiction on the Pine Box Entertainment website! Be one of the first to participate in this new variant soon to be released as a stand alone product!

Friday at Noon and Saturday at 11am, Pine Box and Pinnacle Entertainment Group continue with events including a Doomtown open play/learn to play environment for players beginning and experienced players. Head to the Green Tables (1-3) in Hall D and join our great community for a few rounds of casual play, or learn to play Doomtown for the very first time! You’ll receive some fancy new promos and play for previously-released promotional items from organized play.

Carter’s Classic hits Green Tables 1 and 2 in Hall D on Friday at 4pm: Saddle up pardners, & prepare for a return to the Gomorra of yesteryear! This year’s format is Double Barrel, which follows normal deck construction rules, but each player can only have two of any given card in their deck. This is for the original Classic CCG version of Doomtown.

Saturday at High Noon, Jonah’s Allies takes over Green Tables 4 through 7 in Hall D: Doomtown is moving to Deadwood! The winner of this event will work with the Doomtown Design Team to determine an ally that will join Jonah Essex. Random players each round will help determine members of Jonah’s Alliance. This event continues the choices made at Origins and the UK Badge Event, where players influenced the future of Doomtown!

And throughout Gen Con, find Pine Box HQ at the Green Tables in Hall D.
