|Fantasy Flight Games Gen Con Experience | Published 03 June 2011|
Fantasy Flight Games’ schedule of events at Gen Con Indy 2011 continues to grow. The plethora of events available to our enthusiastic fans includes classic favorites as well as new additions such as Gears of War and Rune Age.
Remember to keep checking back as our schedule of events will be updated throughout the coming weeks! Today, we are pleased to announce that two of our highly anticipated upcoming releases will be available to play in the event hall.
Engage the enemy
Gears of War™: The Board Game, designed by Corey Konieczka, is based on the wildly popular third-person shooter by Epic Games. One to four players take on the roles of COG soldiers cooperating to destroy the Locust horde, and must work together to complete missions against an ingeniously challenging and varied game system. In Gears of War: The Board Game, you’ll relive classic moments from Gears of War™ and Gears of War 2™. Roadie Run into cover, spray your enemy with blind fire, or rip him in half with your Lancer’s chainsaw.
While you are able to demo this game of fierce firefights in our booth, when you reserve a ticket to play Gears of War in the Event Hall you gain the advantage of experiencing the furious ride fully. Further, our helpful staff will be present to guide you through a complete learn-to-play session during the event.
We are confident that Gears of War will prove popular going forward and that our booth demo event will attract hordes of eager participants. A ticket-holder need not worry about waiting to become part of the deadly machine.
Don’t miss out on the chance to complete your mission!
Whose side will you join?
Fantasy Flight Games’ first deck-building card game, Rune Age, will be available to play at Gen Con Indy 2011!
In the vibrant land of Terrinoth it is an age of innovation with war looming on the horizon. Rune Age takes 2-4 players on a journey of adventure and conquest through a conflict-filled world. This unique game, designed by Corey Konieczka, is scenario-driven, allowing players to experience a range of playing options from competitive to fully cooperative. Control one of four warring factions and lead them to dominance by building a destructive army, cunningly seizing cities, and obliterating your foes. Develop your individual deck, that represents your faction’s military strength and capabilities, by expanding it with faction-specific Unit cards or a collection of advantageous Neutral cards that will create a powerful force.
Can you take your place in Terrinoth’s book of legends?

I'm going to Gen Con to play Gears of War. Can't wait!!
I don't know if you will be able to tell me this or not, but will the Gears of War board game be available for purchase at Gencon?!
There will be plenty of demos of both of these, as well as many other games, at the booth. this article is focusing on the event hall.
So we won't be able to get a demo of Rune Age without a ticket?
I'm going as a member of the press and won't be buying tickets.
