Greetings Action Rangers, Guardians, and Survivors, and welcome to the latest installment of the Hunters Gathering. In case you weren’t aware this is a monthly feature where we at Hunters Books connect with you about some of what we are up to behind the scenes, announce new projects, talk about special events, and more.
Enough beating around the bush, on with the Gathering!
Events & More
Hunters Convention Circuit – We here at Hunters Books are no strangers to the convention circuit, and 2017 is no different in that regard. To get things started on that front we have a few appearances setup that you can add to your calendars. Ivan will be in attendance for GTS (GAMA TRADE SHOW), WONDERCON, and PAX EAST – don’t miss your opportunity to meet and chat if you’re planning on attending!
Those are just the first of many appearances we are planning, and more will be announced in the coming weeks and months. So, no worries if you can’t catch up with us at these events as we have more to come!
GAME – Most Popular Game in all Mother Russia: Not Really – This year for International Tabletop Day, we at Hunters Books are getting involved in a fun and unique way – an EXCLUSIVE MICROGAME that will only be available in retail stores! Pre-orders for stores begin on March 1st, but first a little bit more about the greatness that is GAME.
GAME – Most Popular Game in all Mother Russia: Not Really is a simple, fun game you can use to enhance playing of other silly, nimble games around table that are less important than GAME! Using GAME, create house rules for your favorite titles, and like micofilm it is very small and easy to bring to parties where potato water is abundant. Includes: Rules, GAME Manifesto, and official GAME Dice. All peoples can benefit from nights of enjoying their favorite games with GAME!
GAME – Most popular Game in all Mother Russia: Not Really. Honestly it really bear wrestling…. But I digress.
Make sure you tell your retailer to contact their distributor, so they know you want GAME for ITTD 2017!
ABCs of RPGs – Who doesn’t love books in additional languages, allowing them to be enjoyed the world over? Well, we are currently working on the French rights for the ABCs of RPGs! The translation has been done, and we are in the works with a production company to make this a reality. Soon enough you can enjoy the wonders of the ABCs of RPGs in your own language!
Outbreak: Undead 2E – In the course of working on Pandemic Play, we have made adjustments for the rules to better facilitate organized play which has made the game better overall! Of course, we intend to launch Pandemic Play before getting to the 2E Core Rules, and that means we need to get an update out to you. With that in mind, we have an Errata companion piece for the Starter Kit coming next week!
Pandemic Play – After a short delay to compile the errata and make our needed revisions, we will be making the Pandemic Play organized play campaign setting available for free to all Action Rangers and any participating FLGS. Players can bring their Fight, Survive, and Rebuild decks to start play immediately! The campaign setting features:
- Region-specific updates for the entire year
- A main story arc and several opportunities for alternate storyines to be pursued
- Detailed notes for this campaign’s version of the zombie virus: The Chimera Strain!
- Submission guidelines for your own large events and for reporting your group’s results to be compiled into the comeback of the Outbreak: Undead Annual
Thanks as always for joining us for the Hunters Gathering. Be sure to join us on our community forums, and all over social media. We’ll chat again in March!
