|Mansions of Madness | Published 11 February 2011|
You’ve seen the horror with your own eyes.
Now it’s time to enter the darkened foyer...
Next week is your chance to play Mansions of Madness before its release. On February 19th and 20th, a wide variety of retailers across North America will host an exclusive preview event dedicated to Mansions of Madness, the upcoming board game of horror and investigation for 2-5 players. One player will take on the role of the keeper, who guides the other players through a disturbing evening of investigation, evil plots, and unspeakable horrors.
The participating retailers will have a copy of Mansions of Madness on hand at their store, so players should come ready to experience the harrowing narrative that drives this unique board game.
Your local retailer not on the list? Fear not. More exciting information on Mansions of Madness is on the way!
If your local retailer has applied for this event and is not on the list below, please don't hesitate to contact FFG's Scott Clifton to correct this issue. Scotts email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and his phone number is 651 639 1905 (x112).
For Canadian Residents: Due to a shipping delay of the preview copies to Canada, the Mansions of Madness Retail Preview Event will not happen on February 19th and 20th as originally intended. We will post an update with dates for Canadian residents after we confirm retailers have received their kits! Thanks for your patience.

Mansions of Madness is a macabre game of horror, insanity, and mystery for two to five players. Based on the beloved fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, Mansions of Madness tells a story in which one player takes on the role of the keeper, a malevolent force working to complete a sinister plot, and all other players take on the roles of investigators, the unlikely heroes who gather to oppose him.
Although not specifically spelled out yet on the list, there are at least two different retailers that are demoing the game at Dundracon. It is a gaming convention in Northern California (San Ramon) this weekend.
Hell's Bells, the wait has been almost too much to bear for this one. Hoping that FFG will post the rules so those of us outside the US can take some solace from not being able to attend a promo session...
Pretty please :-)
I second the advice to see the rules online.... would be useful to know what's going on prior to the event!
Well, today I went ahead and pre-ordered MoM through Anthem Games here in Tampa, Florida. While I could have ordered it online for less I decided to pay full MSRP for it, since Anthem is (to my knowledge) the only 100% game store in Tampa and I want to support it by buying locally.
PS - Mr. Burnell, thank you for the info. Let me know how your customers like the game when it comes out. I wish you continued success with "Get Your Fun On"! :)
I would think that some of the stores that are hosting but are not yet listed is because FFG only sent out an email Thursday night asking venues for specific information. They may update this list early next week if they get that information.
It would be nice to see the rules online in advance of the event, so that players and event volunteers have more time to famiilarize themselves with them.
Any chance of seeing rules online prior to the preview event?
I thought Emerald Knight Comics and Games in Burbank was participating. Are they not?
Looking for an event in Maryland?
Well, we ARE participating, but are not on the list for some reason as of yet.

Hi Tarot Mage,
my shop is in Central Florida and we registered for the event. Unfortunately we were apparently not chosen to host it event though we have a huge FFG fanbase and Lovecraft games in particular...
Get Your Fun On games
Wow, not one retailer in Florida is having this event?
I guess that makes it official, then: Florida is indeed the dumbest state in the Union (well, the 2000 presidential election pretty much proved that, didn't it?)
Come on Vancouver stores!! Get invovled will you. My greedy guts can't wait until Winter 11 I want to play it now!
Any other countries besides America?
