FFG at Gen Con 2019

The In-Flight Report, Demos, Tournaments, and More


Every summer, thousands and thousands of gamers gather in Indianapolis for Gen Con—the best four days in gaming! Gen Con is a celebration of all things tabletop, from miniatures games and card games to roleplaying games and board games. Between dozens of tournaments, demos of new and upcoming games, the hottest announcements, and the chance to grow your own collection, Gen Con has something for every gamer… and Fantasy Flight Games wouldn’t miss it!

Watch the In-Flight Report Live

For Fantasy Flight Games, the action all starts with the In-Flight Report on Wednesday, July 31! FFG’s annual keynote is dedicated to our newest announcements and surprises, giving you the chance to hear about our upcoming games and expansions before anyone else.

Tickets for this year are completely sold out, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss the excitement. For the first time, we’ll be livestreaming the In-Flight Report on our YouTube and Twitch channels, giving you the chance to watch and join the community from anywhere in the world. The show starts at 7:00 PM Eastern Time, and as always, we’ll have plenty to share, with new expansions for existing product lines and brand-new game announcements.

Then, once the In-Flight Report concludes, don’t leave yet! After a short break, we’ll be back at 8:30 PM Eastern Time for a special episode of FFG Live, where we’ll dive deeper into our just-announced games, showing off gameplay overviews and designer interviews. Join us on YouTube or Twitch to learn more about our newest games!

The Best Four Days in Gaming

From the time the Exhibit Hall opens on Thursday morning, all the way to Sunday afternoon, there’s plenty to see and do with Fantasy Flight Games. You can find us in the Exhibit Hall at Booths 809, 817, and 1117, where we’ll be running demos of the new games announced at the In-Flight Report, as well as plenty of our evergreen titles that you may have missed. Then, if you want to follow up gameplay with some painting time, you can paint your very own Star Wars™: Legion miniature and take it home—for free!—in the paint-and-take area of our booth.

Of course, you may be coming to Gen Con to test your mettle against other players in a more competitive setting! Whether you’re playing in one of our Continental Championships or our dozens of side events, you’ll have the chance to join the community from any of our Organized Play games, including:

Even if you aren’t able to make it to Gen Con yourself, you’ll be able to tune in to the competitive side if you’re a KeyForge player! We’ll be streaming all four days of the two different Vault Tours taking place at Gen Con (one Sealed format and one Archon format). Here, we’ll witness some of the very best KeyForge players in the world taking their decks to the top—so join our live commentators on YouTube or Twitch to watch these KeyForge Vault Tours, starting at 10:30 AM Eastern Time on Thursday, August 1.

You’ve played the demos, and you’ve participated in tournaments, but what about taking games home with you for the rest of the year? As in the past, we’ll be selling our games from our booth in the Exhibit Hall, and it can be the best place for you to pick up some of our latest games. August 1 marks the wide release of the massive Super Star Destroyer Expansion Pack for Star Wars: Armada and the Villains of Eriador Figure Pack for Journeys in Middle-earth, but that’s not all you’ll find at our store. You’ll also have the chance to pick up plenty of new games or expansions before their wide release, including:

Celebrate Tabletop Gaming with Us

For many of us, Gen Con is a time of year like no other—the chance for gamers to meet old and new friends, play games together, and celebrate everything that makes this hobby so rewarding. Like many of you, we’ve spent the whole year planning and preparing for this show, and we’re so excited to show you what we’ve built!

Join us for the In-Flight Report on our YouTube and Twitch channels at 7:00 PM Eastern Time on July 31! Then, if you’re at the show, we hope you stop by and join us at our booth or in the tournament hall! We can’t wait to see you there.
