Gen Con 2018: New Releases, Round Two!

In just over one week we’ll be enjoying the opening day of Gen Con 2018! We’ve already told you SOME of the new material that you’ll be able to find at the booth, but as we told you, we were far from done.

Below is the next wave of new releases, and some of these are exclusive to the show! So get a check-list ready and check out the second round of release news on the latest from Goodman Games appearing at Gen Con 2018!


Dungeon Crawl Classics: The Black Heart of Thakulon the Undying (2018 Gen Con Program Guide)

The annual Goodman Games community-building sourcebook adopts a new format this year!

Building on the immense popularity of the Dungeon Crawl Classics Team Tournament at Gen Con last year, the program guide this year “presents” Dungeon Crawl Classics: The Black Heart Of Thakulon the Undying. This double-sized DCC adventure comes complete with pre-generated characters and scoring instructions so fans can run their own tournament at home!

See how talented your home group is—and whether they can beat the Gen Con 2017 scores! (And you can find those scores here!)

GMGGC18-GenConGuide-ExclusiveVersionThe 2018 Gen Con Program Guide is 112-pages and includes a color gallery showcasing the great games of the last year. Dungeon Crawl Classics: The Black Heart Of Thakulon the Undying was created by lead designers Marc Bruner and Harley Stroh, and written by Steven Bean, Marc Bruner, Michael Curtis, Stephen Newton, Terry Olson, and Harley Stroh, with cover art by Doug Kovacs.

If you aren’t going to make it to Gen Con this year, you can pre-order a copy of the standard version right now, but if you are one of the lucky ones who will be at Gen Con 2018, then you will have the opportunity to pick up the Limited Edition Alternate Cover, which highlights the beautiful cover by Doug Kovacs, but has no text on the front or the back. It’s just art all the way around!

We will have a limited number available exclusively at our Gen Con booth. If you want one, you better get to the booth pretty quickly, because once they’re gone, they’re gone!


DCC Judge’s Screen, Thakulon the Undying Edition

This limited-edition judge’s screen includes all the tables a DCC judge needs to run their game. On the face out side, it has an amazing three-panel Doug Kovacs painting based on the Dungeon Crawl Classics: The Black Heart of Thakulon the Undying (2018 Gen Con Program Guide) from Goodman Games!

This art from the DCC adventure, The Black Heart of Thakulon the Undying, coordinates perfectly with the cover art to the module. The screen is the ideal table complement for the Judge wishing to strike fear into the heart of his players! Even if they might be with some undying sorts!

DCC #67: Sailors on the Starless Sea, Atari Edition

Sure, you already know the module, but you haven’t seen this version! One of our most popular modules is back in an all-new convention exclusive edition! DCC #67: Sailors on the Starless Sea, Atari Edition contains the same material from the traditional version of the adventure, but is resized down to the digest-sized format, and features an Atari-inspired cover. The layout and design of the interior has been reworked to create a new flow for the text, making it very clear and readable even at the new size.

The DCC #67: Sailors on the Starless Sea, Atari Edition will ONLY be available at the convention, so if you want one, you’ve got to be there! (Or know someone who will be.)


Mutant Crawl Classics Yellow Foil Edition

What’s that? A NEW Foil Edition for Mutant Crawl Classics! That’s right, we are happy to announce that Gen Con will see the debut of the new Mutant Crawl Classics Yellow Foil Edition! This version of the acclaimed new release from Goodman Games will ONLY be available at conventions, and—if the stars align and our AI Patron comes through—will debut on Saturday at Gen Con 2018!

This is the second printing on MCC, and a new foil edition for fans who love to see us at shows!


Mutant Crawl Classics Red Foil Edition

What if we told you that the Mutant Crawl Classics Yellow Foil Edition isn’t the only version debuting at Gen Con 2018? If you aren’t going to make it to Gen Con 2018, don’t worry, we do have ANOTHER MCC Foil Edition that will be be finding its way to you soon! The Mutant Crawl Classics Red Foil Edition is also a second printing on the sold-out new game, but this one features a red foil cover.

While it will also make its debut at Gen Con 2018, this version of the MCC Core Rulebook will then ONLY be available at your FLGS, so let them know and pre-order your copy today!


Now that’s a great second wave! Another handful—that’s five—items that will surely go fast, so don’t delay at the show if you are wanting to have one for yourself. And you never know, we MIGHT have another wave of new product that will be at the show that we plan to announce soon! (Hint: We will.)
