This week, Waldo is preparing to join us at Gen Con, and this time, he’s decided to drive the truck. Luckily for us, he doesn’t know the difference between driving an 18-wheeler and getting behind the wheel in an elaborate (cardboard) truck simulator.
So, while we make sure he somehow doesn’t crash into our digital webstore, let’s take a look at all of the new and upcoming releases that will be available at Gen Con (and on our webstore while we are in Indianapolis).
In case you missed it, last week we revealed this year’s Nightmare Box, which reimagines Nekima and her Nephilim crew as underwater merfolk. What’s unique about this year’s Nightmare Edition is that it is fully compatible with both Malifaux AND The Other Side.
Regardless of which side of the Breach you’ll be fighting on, the Deepest Depths box will make sure that you do it in aquatic style.
Bayou Bash is a chaotic racing game for 2-4 players filled with rambunctious racers who will do anything to win over the most fans before crossing the finish line. This long-awaited board game will finally be available during Gen Con this year.
And if you can’t make it to Gen Con this time around, check to see if your friendly local game store is participating in Pop Up Gen Con. Bayou Bash will be playable and purchasable at all Pop Up Gen Cons.
If you pick up Bayou Bash while at Gen Con or online during Gen Con, you’ll receive a Bayou Bash pin!
In Vagrantsong, a cooperative and story-driven boss battler for 2-4 players, you will take on the role of a Vagrant trapped on a supernatural ghost train. Face off against ghosts lingering on the train (called Haints), adjust your playstyle with Skills and Junk acquired along the way, and uncover the secrets of the Silver Ferryman in this spooky and challenging adventure.
We will have limited copies of Vagrantsong available as a pre-release at Gen Con. Due to having limited copies for this pre-release and preorders, Vagrantsong will only be available at the convention (meaning it will not be available on our webstore until the game’s official release date).
If you pick up a copy of Vagrantsong from now until January 31st, fill out this form to receive a Bonus Scenario (which includes new Skills, Junk, and Ritual cards) for free (while supplies last).
Vagrantsong will be released at local game stores later this fall.
If you’re looking to get into The Other Side for the first time or are a Malifaux player looking to expand your Guild or Resurrectionist model list, The Other Side’s Starter Box is a great opportunity to do both! As part of the Other Side 2-player Starter set, Kirai Ankoku will bring her host of ghosts Earthside to battle as part of The Court of Two. Fighting against the Court of Two are the iron-willed Guild, showcasing their power Earthside. Led by Sonnia Criid, the Guild are a dominate show of force on the battlefield, with access to new area control and resource management abilities, providing ample card draw and beneficial effects.
All of the models in The Other Side’s Starter Box are playable in Malifaux Third Edition, as well!
Joining them during Gen Con are the official releases for Samantha Thrace and Binh Nguyen. These Champions can be used to expand the forces within the 2-player Starter Box, or can be used independently in other Allegiances in the game. They are also compatible with Malifaux Third Edition as alt models; Samantha Thrace counts as Dashel Barker and Binh Nguyen counts as Datsue Ba.
The Other Side Starter Box, Samantha Thrace, and Binh Nguyen will be available at Gen Con and during our Gen Con web sale, and will be hitting store shelves later this fall.
If you purchase The Other Side Starter box from now until January 31st from us, you’ll receive a TOS pin for free!
Malifaux Burns is the upcoming expansion book for Malifaux Third Edition that includes new titles for every Master in the game, as well as dual-keyword models that will be paired with two Masters. In addition to cards and bios of every new title and character, Malifaux Burns also includes one epic story about the Burning Man arriving in Malifaux, and what it means to everyone this side of the Breach.
You’ll be able to pick up the Malifaux Burns expansion book at Gen Con, during the Gen Con web sale, or when it hits store shelves in October. And if you buy it between now and January 31st, send us a proof of purchase here and you’ll receive the digital PDF of Malifaux Burns for free! PDF links will be sent out on a weekly basis after the book is officially released.
And if you pick up Malifaux Burns during Gen Con (either at the convention or on our webstore), you’ll receive a Malifaux pin, too!
