Why hello there everyone!
Gen Con is coming up soon and all the pieces of the convention puzzle are coming together at the Calliope Games Headquarters. Everyday has been a blur of meetings and dice rolling and we can’t wait for all of you to see!
Gen Con 2016 | August 4-7, Indianapolis
As many of you know, we have been working on our Titan Series games. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Titan Series, it is an upcoming collection of gateway games by the some of the industry’s best game designers. Ray Wehrs, President of Calliope Games, invited well-known game designers like Richard Garfield, Eric Lang, and Jordan Weisman (to name a few) to create games that fit within the Calliope wheelhouse — easy-to-learn, quick to play, accessible to all ages and levels of game experience, and above all, lots of fun! The idea is to offer you gateway games designed by your favorite designers! That way you can share your love for board games by your favorite designers with family and friends… and not have to worry about scaring them away!
Calliope will be demoing the first wave of three Titan Series games at Gen Con this year: Running With The Bulls by Paul Peterson, Hive Mind by Richard Garfield, and Menu Masters by Zach & Jordan Weisman. Each of these games are expected to be released in stores this September. Along with the Titan Series games, we will also be demoing all other Calliope titles in booth #1901.

Players who have had an opportunity to demo the Titan Series games at Origins and TexiCon have had a blast playing them! We are excited to be working together with your FLGS (Favorite Local Game Store) as we move toward their availability in the fall!
We are also very excited to tell you about the Calliope Games button collection. For the very first time at Gen Con this year, attendees who stop by our booth #1901 and play/demo one of our games will receive a collectible button that corresponds with that game! If an attendee collects all 11 buttons, they will receive a special Titan Series lapel pin!
We at Calliope Games want to help make this the best Gen Con ever for gamers! Drop by booth #1901 and be the first to play some new games with your friends before they hit store shelves! We’ll also have some incredible deals at the booth that will make sure your gaming library is the best in town!
Join us, and let’s play!
