With the arrival of summer, our traditional Trade Show season is beginning to heat up in earnest. Here’s a brief preview of what new things, BattleLore- related, you will get a chance to see:
- Origins 2007 (Columbus, OH – July 4 thru 8): Demo versions of the first Specialist packs, the Dwarven Battalion and Goblin Skirmishers sets, will be shown for the first time to the general public. Actual “For Retail” copies will follow soon thereafter and should be shipping by Mid-July.
- World Boardgame Championship (Lancaster, PA – July 31 thru August 5): Demo versions of the second wave of Specialist packs, the Goblin Marauders and the Hundred Years’ War – Crossbows & Polearms sets, will be previewed for the first time.
- Gencon 2007 (Indianapolis, IN – August 16 thru 19): With any luck, the 2nd wave of Specialist packs, previewed at the WBC, will become available for sale at this date.
In addition, we will be running BattleLore events (demos, tournaments, …) at all of these venues. Details will be posted in the Events section of our web site as we get closer to each show.
Throw a few summer vacations in for most of us all, and this blog is likely to see a few less updates than customary during the coming two months.
In the meantime, you may want to visit the battleloremaster web site, where Open-the-Box pictures of the first wave of Specialist packs have just started appearing!
We wish you all a great summer and hope to see many of you at the shows.
