FFG at Gen Con 2023
Announcing the FFG Events at Gen Con 2023
Gen Con 2023 is fast approaching!
Just like last year, Fantasy Flight Games will be appearing at this massive event in Indianapolis, Indiana. You may have already registered for some of our events, but just in case you missed any of the information floating about, here is a quick look at the events we’ll be hosting. We hope to see you there!
Arkham Horror: The Card Game
Gen Con 2023 Scenario
As is tradition at Gen Con, we will be hosting a large-scale multiplayer event for Arkham Horror: The Card Game! Join game designer Duke Harrist as he guides investigators through a revamped version of a classic standalone scenario, this time with a new, unique twist!
What horrors will await you in this special event? Stay tuned in the coming weeks to find out! Please note that you will need to bring your own deck to this event!
It’s a mystery! You’ll just have to wait until the full reveal.
Descent: Legends of the Dark
With its second Act, The Betrayer’s War, releasing shortly after the event, Gen Con provides the perfect opportunity to jump into the grand adventure that is Descent: Legends of the Dark! This learn-to-play event has you experiencing the base game’s first scenario, where you will take control of one of four heroes—Brynn, Galaden, Syrus, or Vaerix—and launch your journey into the world of Terrinoth.
Descent: Legends of the Dark offers an experience unlike any other. If you’ve been waiting to try the game out, then Gen Con is the perfect chance!
Anyone who participates in this learn-to-play will get a special set of Hobby Next promo dice for Descent: Legends of the Dark!
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game
The Hunt for the Dreadnaught Scenario
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is back at Gen Con, with another round of the massive multiplayer scenario, The Hunt for the Dreadnaught. Hot on the heels of the release of the Dream-chaser Campaign Expansion, this high seas adventure has multiple teams of heroes working together to overcome the threat of vicious Corsairs. Join game designer Jeremy Zwirn and experience this epic scenario for yourself!
If you think you’ve got what it takes to sail the dangerous waters of Middle-earth, then be sure to sign up for this event here. Please note that you will need to bring your own deck to this event!
Dream-Chaser Campaign Expansion – Voyage Across Belegaer Scenario
And speaking of sailing the high seas, if you haven’t yet started your voyage through the Dream-chaser campaign, you’ll have the opportunity to try out the campaign’s first scenario at Gen Con as well. Chart your course and set sail through the Voyage Cross Belegaer as you begin the epic tale of the Dream-chaser!
When you’re ready to board your ship and chart your course, be sure to sign up for the event here. Please note that you will need to bring your own deck to this event!
Participating in either of The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game events will net you a slick acrylic first-player token to use in your games at home.
Marvel Champions: The Card Game
NeXt Evolution Sneak Preview
Marvel Champions: The Card Game will have a big presence at Gen Con this year, with no less than three different events! The first of these events is a chance to play the first scenario of NeXt Evolution, the sixth campaign expansion for the game and one that will be hitting store shelves just a couple short weeks after Gen Con. In this scenario, Morlock Siege, you and your fellow heroes take on the Marauders and try stop them from wreaking havoc in the Morlock tunnels beneath New York.
If you’re as excited for the next wave of Marvel Champions content as we are, then you won’t want to miss this opportunity to try out the first scenario of NeXt Evolution early! Just make sure you bring your own hero deck, as we will not be providing previews of any new heroes. You can sign up for the event here.
Marvel Champions Campaign Contest Scenario
Toward the end of last year, we hosted a special campaign contest for Marvel Champions, in which fans of the game could mix-and-match scenarios and modular sets from throughout the game’s expansions and use them to create their very own custom campaigns. At Gen Con this year, we’ll be hosting a special opportunity to play a scenario from one of the contest’s winners with other fans of the game. This scenario is the very first one from Awesome Campaign Volume 1, which pits you and your team against the powerful and dangerous Ronan the Accuser. Thankfully, you’ll have some support from the Guardians of the Galaxy and some extra setup rules, making this a scenario a uniquely fun challenge!
You can sign up for this event here. Please note that you will need to bring your own hero deck to this event, and that hero cannot have the Guardian trait. You’ll also need to bring a Basic Guardian ally to aid you in the fight against Ronan.
Marvel Champions Learn-to-Play
What if you’ve never played Marvel Champions: The Card Game, and you’re wondering what all the hype is about? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered there as well: the third Marvel Champions event we’ll be hosting is a learn-to-play event geared toward folks who’ve yet to dive into this awesome card game. Take on the villain Rhino, stop him from breaking things and taking things, and learn what kind of hero you want to be.
You can sign up for this event here. Pre-built hero decks will be provided—all you’ll need is the desire to fight crime!
If you participate in any of the three Marvel Champions: The Card Game events, you will be awarded with two sets of special alternate-art promo versions of the Energy, Genius, and Strength resource cards. One set will be themed after Spider-Man (Peter Parker), and the other is themed after Captain Marvel!
Jumping from our first Marvel game to our most-recent one, anyone who has yet to try out Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R. can take the game for a spin in this learn-to-play event. Choose your hero and race across the globe with your team to complete missions, battle enemies, and face off against the nemesis in a final showdown!
You can sign up for this event here.
Anyone who participates in this learn-to-play will walk away with alternate-art versions of the game’s hero sheets!
Twilight Inscription is a roll-and-write game designed for 1 to 8 players…but what if it was bigger? In this event, we’ll be showcasing some special massive-multiplayer rules for the game that allow up to 24 players to face off at once! With all of the game’s factions in play at the same time, the Twilight Imperium galaxy has never felt this grand.
Be sure to sign up for this 24-player game of Twilight Inscription here.
Each participant in this 24-player game will receive a promo card for the Council Keleres faction, which will be made available as print-and-play content for the game at a later date. The players who place in the Top 4 of this event will each receive a set of Hobby Next promo dice for Twilight Inscription.
Star Wars™: The Deckbuilding Game
We’ll also be hosting a learn-to-play for Star Wars: The Deckbuilding Game. In this easy-to-learn game, you and your opponent each choose a side, playing as either the Galactic Empire or the Rebel Alliance. As the game progresses, each player strengthens the power of their starting decks and works to destroy each other’s bases.
Participants in this learn-to-play event will earn themselves a pair of alternate-frame versions of the game’s starting base cards.
Star Wars: Unlimited
At Gen Con, you’ll have the opportunity to get a sneak peek at Star Wars: Unlimited, FFG’s new trading card game of unlimited possibilities! We’ll be hosting lots of demos for the game throughout the weekend of the event, allowing people to get their first real look at how the game is played.
You won’t want to miss this opportunity! Be sure to sign up for a demo here.
Participating in a Star Wars: Unlimited game demo will earn you an event-exclusive variant of both the Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader leader cards.
