Remaining Draccus characters for purchase!

unnamed

The lovely people at Worldbuilders just checked in with us to let us know that there are approximately 3,000 Draccus promo characters available for purchase at their site. They have already sold 1,000, which means they’ve raised $20,000 for the Heifer International charity! This is already a lot of money but they could raise even more with help from you!

 

For information on Pat’s charity Worldbuilders, visit www.worldbuilders.org. To see what sort of geeky goodness The Tinker’s Packs carries, head over to www.thetinkerspacks.com. And finally, if you’d like to see how Heifer International helps impoverished families and communities, visit www.heifer.org.

If you weren’t able to snag a Draccus at Gen Con 2015, you are now able to make an online donation to the Worldbuilders charity to claim one as your own!

100% of the sales of the new Draccus card will go to support Rothfuss’s charity Worldbuilders, which has to date raised over $3.5 million for Heifer International to help end hunger and bring families and communities out of poverty. So you’ll be able to destroy Tokyo with a clear conscience! The Worldbuilders staff are also a bit crazy for tabletop and role-playing games, and one of their favorites is King of Tokyo (not even kidding: visit www.worldbuilders.org/news/jeff-is-king-of-tokyo for the latest saga). There may be fights over who gets to be the Draccus.

There may be some of you wondering what the heck’s up with Medieval Academy. This game was first published through Blue Cocker Games, but we are currently in the process of reprinting it for our US supporters. Keep your eyes peeled for its release in early summer!

King of Tokyo/NY National Qualifier Invitations

king of the universe 2015 try 2

Hello everyone!

Time is going by fast, and we’re getting closer and closer to GenCon 2015! Just like last year, we will be hosting a King of Tokyo/King of New York National Qualifier Tournament during the convention. Since we now have King of New York in the mix, the tournament structure will be different from last year’s. The first few qualifying rounds will be played with King of Tokyo and then we will move on to King of New York for the final round before crowning an ultimate winner.

Everyone who won a KoT/KoNY tournament at their local store or convention will be invited to participate and will have the chance to be named the 2015 National King of the Universe Champion. If you have already won a tournament, CHECK HERE to make sure your name is on our list. If it’s not – contact your local game store and make sure they fill out their After Action Report! It’s how we keep track of our winners and their contact info.

If you haven’t won a tournament, but are excited about the chance to be invited, show your local game store this link and ask them to host a tournament! There’s still time!

Otherwise, we will contact all the winners a month before the event with additional, more precise information.

Of course, if you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to contact us at sara@iellogames.com or danni@iellogames.com for clarification and help!
