Digital Downloads, How to Spot our Staff at Gen Con, and Buying Dice from Home

Gen Con is almost here and Crafty Games has one last announcement to make before before we hit the road. There are three items to cover and you'll definitely want to stick around for the last one (because you know we always close with a big finish). First up...

 

DIGITAL DOWNLOADS AVAILABLE AT GEN CON

For the first time ever, Crafty Games is offering digital versions of select books that you can buy in person, and the prices are in some cases better than you can get at our online store. When you visit out booth (again, #419, in the Studio 2 block), you'll want to look for these postcards...

Digital Download Postcard

(click through for an embiggened version)

Simply take one of these up to the register with any print book and we'll add a download code for the same book for just $5 more!

You can also pick up the digital version of any of our print books on its own for just $15. The choice is yours. 

 

 

HOW YOU CAN SPOT OUR STAFF AT THE SHOW

Alex and Pat will be wearing our traditional black Crafty Games polos (look for the breast logo), but in the booth our staff are easy to spot. Simply look for these shirts...

The Crafty Work of Ben McSweeney

(Sorry about the model. He crawled onto our doorstep one day, we made the mistake of feeding him, and now he won't go away. We're thinking of calling him Dobbie.)

 

 

ABOUT BUYING THOSE MISTBORN DICE FROM HOME...

Mistborn Adventure Game Dice - Premium Set

Last week we posted about our product and event plans at Gen Con, and the response has been incredible. Everyone's really excited but as we expected a few of you are bummed that you can't make it to the show. You want to own one of those sweet Mistborn Premium Dice Sets but you've got to jet over to save the Princess of Monaco this weekend. We get it. You all lead busy lives of international intrgiue and can't be trifled with skydiving into the Best Four Days of Gaming. We're hurt, but we get it - and we're happy to do something about it. So...

LATER THIS WEEK, THE MISTBORN PREMIUM DICE SETS WILL GO ON SALE HERE ON THE CRAFTY GAMES WEBSITE

You'll want to watch our front page and feeds for the product page, and you definitely won't want to delay when it hits because quantities will be extremely limited

Also note that we will only be selling the Premium Dice Sets here on the site. The Elite Sets (with the Mistborn dice bag) will only be avaialble at Gen Con.

 

 

That should about do it for this edition of Crafty Games at Gen Con! Once again, you can find the previous Gen Con annoucnement here, including details about our new products at the show,our special celebrity session with Brandon Sanderson,  our celebrity signings with Brandon Sanderson and Ben McSweeney, and our full slate of events. 

Be sure to watch us on FacebookTwitter, Google+, and the Crafty Games news feed throughout the weekend for live updates and posts from the show. 

We can't wait to see everyone again. Stay Crafty!
