GEN CON 2023

The wait is nearly over!

The games, the sights, the sounds (the smells?) -- Gen Con 2023 is upon us, and we've got a lot to talk about.

Let's get to it!


Visit Our Rose Gauntlet Booth

Awww yea, it's our first ever Rose Gauntlet Booth at Gen Con! 

Swing by exhibit booth #364 to meet our team, get a firsthand look at our games, and snag some awesome swag.

Here's the lowdown on what we have in store:

  • Keystone: North America will be available for purchase and to preview.
  • Wild Gardens will be available for pre-order and we'll be showing off the final production copy in the booth!
  • Wild Gardens artist Lyss Menold will be in the booth (yes, she just might sign things)
  • Postcards with the beautiful Wild Gardens art will be available for purchase.
  • We will have the coolest pins too!

Look how adorable these pins are!


The BIPOC Lounge Returns!

We're excited to announce we have once again partnered with Gen Con to host the BIPOC Lounge -- a lounge area for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) professionals and attendees!

The BIPOC Lounge is a dedicated space for BIPOC attendees to connect, relax, network, and utilize for career-focused endeavors, with the intention to build, assist, and provide resources for the growth of the community. This space was created to follow through on our goals of spotlighting underrepresented voices, supplementing convention experiences, and supporting new opportunities for those seeking to enter or move further into the tabletop industry.

Last year was a big success and with Gen Con's support we're thrilled to be expanding the space at this year's show!

For those interested in participating, the BIPOC Lounge is located in rooms #240 and #241 will be open:

  • Thu, Aug 3 | 12-6 PM ET (followed by the BIPOC Social Mixer at 6:30 PM)
  • Fri, Aug 4 | 12-10 PM ET
  • Sat, Aug 5 | 12-10 PM ET
  • Sun, Aug 6 | 12-4 PM ET

We can't wait to see you there!
