Exile is thrilled to be at Gen Con 2016, and we have more going on than ever this year. Most importantly, this year is Hollow Earth Expedition's 10th anniversary, and we're celebrating that with costumes, dozens of events, and a slew of new products.
Over the past decade, we have taken players to the center of the Earth, back to the surface world, and onward to Mars. To commemorate that journey we've put together a special Collector's set of Hollow Earth Expedition books, including the hard-to-find hardcover core rulebook. We will only be selling one of these per day so be sure to find us early if you want one.
In addition to the Collector's set, we have our brand new Mars-themed Game Master screen and limited edition extras from our sucessful Kickstarter campaigns on hand, including two new sets of Style chips and a brand new version of Ubiquity dice that can "explode" to generate more successes. The GM screen will eventually be available in stores, but the extras are limited to what we have left over from our Kickstarter campaigns, so get them while they last. You can find us on the corner of booth #2129, right next to #2230.
(Note: If you are one of our Kickstarter backers who arranged to pick up your rewards at the convention, we'll have them set aside for you. Come by and get them anytime.)m
In addition to our new products, we're also running a slew of fun events this year, including over 40 official games. Of particular note is our third annual Den of Ubiquity, scheduled for Friday night, August 5th. The Den is a collection of different Ubiquity games that all take place in the same room and is a great way to meet other players and have fun the system. We may be biased, but this may be is our favorite Gen Con event ever. We love it!
We're also going to be running our second Ubiquity Grand Tournament as well, with a dinosaur-skull trophy going to the winner. It was a big hit last year, and should be even more fun this time around. We can't wait to see who emerges victorious this year!
As if that wasn't enough, Exile Game Studio is also co-sponsoring the Orc Stomp 5K again, and is inviting runners to "Race the Raptors" once more. As before, we will be running the race dressed as dinosaurs and anyone who finishes before us gets a badge ribbon and bragging rights for the rest of the convention. It was tremendously fun last year, and we know more than a few people who are itching for a rematch. We wish them luck!
That's everything we have planned for Gen Con this year. Sure, it's a lot of work, but it's totally worth it. If you're going to be at the convention, be sure to stop by our booth and wish Hollow Earth Expedition a happy 10th anniversary. We hope to see you there!
