Selling out of games is not new at att at GenCon, but the fast rate and frequency of
this years sell out titles was. Fantasy AGE Basic Rulebook as well as
Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana from Green Ronin had limited stock
every day and sold out everyday within a few hours of the convention, no doubt that
Wil Wheaton had some part to play in it's popularity, with his sister show to

Blood Rage (läs mer här) is
Eric Lang's newest partnership with CoolMiniOrNot, this time bringing an area
control wargame set in a Viking myth. The game's production is stellar, and the
gameplay looks on par with everything Eric Lang has brought us in
the last few years. The game sold out on Friday, the second day of the convention,
and people have gone to the forums in droves to talk about how wonderful this game
is. I can't wait.
Another game that premiered at the convention that were the hot games to pick up
before they were all gone include Mysterium, a card game that is a whimsical mix of

sporting all new artwork and some spectacular components. On a side note, the game
is originally Polish, and a polish edition has been available through us for a short time
now, if you're interested in trying this unique game for yourself and with the original
