51
System: Shuffling Horror
Shuffling pods, blobs and UFOs! The Time: 1951. The Place: Roswell. The Problem: Outer Space Invasion! Cinematic thrills await in Roswell 51, a card-n-dice game that plays like a 1950s space invasion flick. Survivors must watch the skies and fight for their lives as a central dealt hand of cards reveals horrible events and menacing aliens. One player commands these aliens, while all others try to thwart their efforts and stay one step ahead of the shuffle. If a player is eliminated, they don’t stop playing–they just beam back into the game as a pod person. Just who will be standing when the screen fades to black?

 

 ======================================================

Promo_3D-PITTSBURGH68Pittsburgh 68

System: Shuffling Horror
Slow moving zombies rule! The Time: 1968. The Place: Pittsburgh. The Problem: Zombies! Thrills and chills await in Pittsburgh 68, a card-n-dice game that plays like a creepy, classic zombie movie. With each passing turn, the cards reveal the movie’s horrid events and ravenous zombies. Players do their best to stay one step ahead of the zombie shuffle as they face an ever growing zombie problem (which they might end up being a part of). Just who will be the last one standing when the screen fades to black? Pittsburgh 68 is the first release in GameWick’s Shuffling Horror line.

 

Shuffling Horror Awaits!

Goin’ Old Skool: Origins 2016 Events

June 13th, 2016

Oh, yes, there will be WEGS Old Skool Fantasy at Origins 2016! Here’s the info for all of you who want to swing swords and sling the lingo. Play WEGS!

FRIDAY – June 17 – 8 pm – WEGS Rifting The JarlBlog-GaryCon16-G123
Get ready to slip and slide your way through Gary Gygax’s classic module, The Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl (G2)! Here’s the twist: we are using the WEGS Old Skool Fantasy system. Fantastic heroes will be created in minutes and ready to go on a giant slaying expedition. Don’t worry about the system; just worry about the frost giants and staying alive. Rules taught – all you need is a sense of adventure to get started. Bring your lucky 2d6 and 2d10 (%), the only dice you’ll need to play WEGS. Let’s dungeon party like it’s 1978 (but with that ridiculously wacky WEGS system).

Saturday – June 18 – 8pm – Dingbitt’s Dunge O Doom
A rag-tag party of sword-n-sorcery heroes are plunged into the randomly generated dungeon run by Dingbitt, a devilish halfling rogue. His magic dungeon is chock full of treasure, traps and monsters. The deeper the party delves, the bigger the booty (and the greater the peril, of course). It is up to the heroes to decide what it shall be: fabulous trove, worthy opponents or, perhaps, just to find a way out? Priorities change fast after you leave Level 1! The session begins with a quick WEGS Old Skool Fantasy character generation. Four dice fuel the game (2d6 and 2d10) and the rules are designed for full throttle sword-n-sorcery exploits. Fun rules. Wild dice rolls. Wicked adventure!

Science Fiction Double Feature (Gen Con 2015)

November 22nd, 2015

This past summer, at Gen Con 2015, GameWick Games went all in with our biggest event yet: The Shuffling Horror Science Fiction Double Feature. The event was run on Thursday night and had four tables of simultaneous sessions of Pittsburgh 68 (our zombie feature) and Roswell 51 (our sci-fi invasion playtest). Players even got to play upon our Shuffling Horror Shuffle Board prototype.

Big thanks to the Directors who ran the game sessions: Adam, Andy, Jason, and Mike!

Look for the Return of Shuffling Horror at Gen Con 2016!
