The Main Attraction

Come visit the Fantasy Flight Games Booth at Gen Con Indy

Begin your weekend of gaming by visiting the Fantasy Flight Games booth at Gen Con Indy 2011!

At our booth you’ll encounter helpful FFG staff who’ll answer all your questions, game demos, book signings by Tracy Hickman, and game signings by Richard Launius.

Booth signings

FFG is pleased to offer our fans two prominent guests at our booth, who will be available for signings: Tracy Hickman and Richard Launius!

Come meet Mr. Hickman and have a book signed! He will be available Friday, August 4th from 3pm - 4pm, and Saturday, August 5th, from 3pm - 4pm.

Tracy Hickman is a New York Times Bestselling fantasy author and the co-creator of The Dragonlance Chronicles. In addition to Embers of Atlantis, Mr. Hickman has recently worked on Wayne of Gotham (a Batman novel for DC Comics). Mr. Hickman has over fifty books currently in print in multiple languages.

Mr. Launius will be available to sign your copy of any of his games on Saturday, August 5th, from 11am-12pm.

Mr. Launius has been designing games since the 1970s. In 1987 Chaosium published the first edition of Mr. Launius’ design, entitled Arkham Horror, and in 1994 it was redesigned by Mr. Launius and FFG’s own Kevin Wilson. Recently Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson teamed up again on the Mythos adventure game Elder Sign, and Mr. Launius graciously agreed to write an expansion for Mansions of Madness: Season of the Witch.

Demos, demos, and more demos!

Be among the first in the world to demo our new and upcoming games! Our demos run throughout the entire weekend, and are free and open to all convention guests during Exhibit Hall hours.

The FFG booth is your chance, once a year, to demo our hottest new and unreleased games, as well as revisit some past favorites. These game presentations are the perfect way for you to explore what these products have to offer.

The demo process works as follows:

  • Look for your favorite title or a new one, or ask a friendly and helpful staff member to help you locate a demo to participate in.
  • After you’ve located the game you want to try, simply find a seat.
  • If all the seats are full, stick around as they run on a first come, first serve basis (demos usually last for around a half an hour but we’re confident that you’ll find them well worth the wait).

While the demo process will not cover an entire game from beginning to end, our FFG staff will run you through a few rounds that will still provide you with the game’s feel and experience.

Video game company THQ will also be on hand to demo their upcoming Warhammer® 40,000®: Space Marine® video game on a demo station. In this intense Action/Shooter the player becomes the ultimate defender of humanity, sent to stop the brutal Ork invasion of a vital Forge World. As the barbaric Orks rip the planet apart, it’s up to you and your battle-hardened squad of Space Marines to cut a bloody path through the Ork horde and discover what they’re so eager to find.
