This weekend, Con on the Cob returns to Richfield, Ohio, once again promising four fantastic days of games, art, freaks, and fun!
The brainchild of artist and game designer, Andy Hopp (Low Life for Savage Worlds), Con on the Cob is a truly unique convention experience that brings together artists, musicians, gamers, and so much more! Joining Andy and the gang this weekend as Special Gaming Guest is “Big Irish” himself, our very own Sean Patrick Fannon (Savage Rifts®).
To learn more visit the Con on the Cob website. And be sure to check out all the Savage Worlds games already on the schedule (everything from East Texas University to Solomon Kane).
Be sure to ask Andy to sign your book. Sometimes he draws a cute critter. Sometimes it’ll look like he’s sneezed in it, but that’s just one of the many strange playable races from Low Life…we think. 😉
Whether you’re spending tonight at your game tables staring down the horrors of the Weird West in Deadlands: Reloaded, crossing sabers with the Cabal in Rippers Resurrected, or taking your studies to a whole new level of terror at East Texas University, we hope you all have a very safe and Happy Halloween!
We know that real life can be pretty scary sometimes, but there’s nothing quite so cathartic as unloading your patented Hellstromme Industries Hellfire on a horde of the undead in Deadlands Noir or kicking in the rotted teeth of a gaggle of ghouls in The Goon™ Roleplaying Game! We love us some horror here at Pinnacle (in case you didn’t notice) and you can always count on us for a wickedly good time.
Have fun tonight, don’t eat too much candy (dibs on the peanut butter cups), and may all your Wild Dice Ace.
Happy “Savage” Halloween!
Yeah, we know you’re all still getting ready for Halloween, but before you know it, there will be snow on the ground and songs of the season on the radio. Get a jump on things by saving big bucks on some Savage goodies today.

After this, our own Clint Black slides behind his GM screen for a star-studded Savage Worlds charity game (Arcti-Gator vs. Croco-Sharkasaurus: A Syfy Original Movie) featuring members of the Pinnacle Entertainment Group staff and just maybe guest starring… YOU! Folks watching can influence the game by deciding who plays which character or even buying player and GM Bennies via cash donations to the con charity.
