Gen Con 50 Checklist and Events! The Rodneys! Road Crew Callout!

The Latest News From Goodman Games




Every year at Gen Con, the Goodman Games gang gets together to discuss current and future products. We call this, What’s New With Goodman Games. Catchy title, huh?

This year, Seminar attendees will get the first look at the cover design for our licensed conversion of B1: In Search of the Unknown and  B2: Keep on the Borderlands! Plus seminar attendees will be the first to hear about a new product line that will be of great interest to fans of Appendix N. We’ll also be sharing the latest on other projects you already know about, like Mutant Crawl Classics and DCC: Lankhmar, and much more!

So, if you are going to be in Indianapolis at Gen Con 50, be sure to join us Saturday night, 7:00-8:00 PM at the Crowne Plaza, Grand Central Ballroom C. We promise to deliver the goods!

The deadline for the Rodneys is less than a month away!

We first announced our participation again this year back in April, but time is running out. If you’re planning to enter their DCC adventure-writing contest make sure to submit by the deadline of September 9th.This is a great contest! You get to claim you won, you get a cash prize, and they’ll give you a hand-crafted award created by Albion Swords with your name inscribed on it!

The Rodneys are presented every year at GameHoleCon, and Goodman Games is proud to once more sponsor one of the awards. For complete rules and details, make sure to visit the contest page on GameHoleCon’s site.

We look forward to seeing what you devise!


We are still looking for Judges to run events at Pax Unplugged and Big Bad Con in the coming months. Pax Unplugged is the weekend of November 17-19 and Big Bad Con is October 13-15. Join up with our Road Crew and let’s get some games in place!

An impassioned plea from Terry Olsen lets you know the status with Big Bad Con. The space is there, all that is needed are people willing to run events. And signing up to run an event is easy, using their online system  And the proceeds from Big Bad Con go to charity, including Doctor’s Without Borders, making it a great convention to support. So, if you are in the San Fransisco Bay Area, Big Bad Con is calling your name!

Then in November, you can turn your attention to Pax Unplugged. This is the first year for this new mega-show, and Goodman Games will be there! We’ll have a booth setup, with all of the latest goodies (and maybe some surprises) at the show, but we need YOU to help us run events! Pax Unplugged is a different kind of event, with the folks from Pax working with local gaming groups to set up events to be run at the show on a daily basis. So, as proud members of the Goodman Games Road Crew, we ask that you see about getting some Goodman into the show every day in the open gaming area!

We hope to see you guys at both shows!
