Calliope Games Upcoming Titan Series
Hello Calliope Gamers!
(Information provided by Natasha Follett of Calliope Games)
We hope everyone is doing well as we head into Gen Con! Calliope Games would like to give you the latest scoop on what we are planning so that you’re as excited as we are about Gen Con 2016!
As many of you know, we have been working on our Titan Series games. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Titan Series, it is an upcoming collection of gateway games by the some of the industry’s best game designers. Ray Wehrs, President of Calliope Games, invited well-known game designers like Richard Garfield, Eric Lang, and Jordan Weisman (to name a few) to create games that fit within the Calliope wheelhouse — easy-to-learn, quick to play, accessible to all ages and levels of game experience, and above all, lots of fun! The idea is to offer you gateway games designed by your favorite designers! That way you can share your love for board games by your favorite designers with family and friends… and not have to worry about scaring them away!
Calliope will be demoing the first wave of three Titan Series games at Gen Con this year: Running With The Bulls by Paul Peterson, Hive Mind by Richard Garfield, and Menu Masters by Zach & Jordan Weisman. Each of these games are expected to be released in stores this September. Along with the Titan Series games, we will also be demoing all other Calliope titles in booth #1901.
Players who have had an opportunity to demo the Titan Series games at Origins and TexiCon have had a blast playing them! We are excited to be working together with your FLGS (Favorite Local Game Store) as we move toward their availability in the fall!
If you’re headed to Gen Con this year, we will have a couple special guests stopping by! Paul Peterson will be demoing his Titan Series game Running with the Bulls Thursday, August 4th through Sunday, August 7th from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Stop by booth #1901 to learn the game from the designer himself – it’s a rare opportunity! We will also be having the one and only Santa Claus at the booth to help us with our “Naughty or Nice” convention special celebrating our games 12 Days by James Ernest and Mike Selinker and Thieves! by Richard de Rijk. You know that you want to get a picture with Santa and play some games with him!
We are also very excited to tell you about the Calliope Games button collection. For the very first time at Gen Con this year, attendees who stop by our booth #1901 and play/demo one of our games will receive a collectible button that corresponds with that game! If an attendee collects all 11 buttons, they will receive a special Titan Series lapel pin! These buttons will make you the coolest kid on the block! Here is a sneak peak at some of the ones we are releasing (along with our lapel pin!)
We at Calliope Games want to help make this the best Gen Con ever for gamers! Drop by booth #1901 and be the first to play some new games with your friends before they hit store shelves! We’ll also soon reveal some incredible deals at the booth that will make sure your gaming library is the best in town! Join us, and let’s play!
