New In The Online Store: The 2019 Gongfarmer’s Almanac

One of the most popular items from Gen Con every year is the release of The Gongfarmer’s Almanac. This zine is presented in several volumes, each compiling the work of the many fans who contribute to the zine.

For those not lucky enough to be at Gen Con and get their copies, The Gongfarmer’s Local #282 also goes the extra mile to compile all the issues into a single volume—which they sell at cost. That’s right, The Gongfarmer’s Local #282 makes no profit from these books, and neither does Goodman Games.

And now the new volume for 2019 is ready and available—with a new twist. For the first time, The Gongfarmer’s Almanac has gone hardcover! The book is still being presented at-cost, but now it’s in a high-quality hardcover format to go onto your shelf right next to your Dungeon Crawl Classics core rulebook!

It’s not just the 2019 volume getting that treatment, either. All four of the previous volumes are also now available in hardcover, as well! Check out the links below and grab your copy of The Gongfarmer’s Almanac today!
