Firefly Games at GenCon Indy

Carmichael, CA - Follow the rainbow to Firefly Games at GenCon Indy for the print debut of Faery's Tale and much more. We've posted a free map of the exhibit hall showing the way to our booth, #1137, at

Faery's Tale, the interactive storytelling game of fairy-tale adventure for ages 6 & up, debuts in print at the show for $14.95. Buy the game at the show and get a free bonus adventure, The Mute Minstrel. (This offer also applies to print pre-orders, both for pick-up at GenCon or shipping after the show). Come in faery costume and get a $1 discount on the game. One discount per purchase, please.

Along with the eagerly awaited print release of Faery's Tale, we'll have custom faery dice and dark faery dice, plus colorful glass Essence stones, for sale. Pick up a velveteen bag of Essence, or select your own stones from our Bowl o' Essence.

We'll be running four scheduled Faery's Tale games at GenCon, one each day, suitable for children, new gamers, old-timers, and anyone new to the game. Pre-registration has closed, but there are still openings for most slots so be sure to sign up on-site.

Several of the creators of Faery's Tale, including co-author Patrick Sweeney, will be on hand to answer questions or chat about the game, along with Firefly Games staffers including webmaster Keith Sears and production director Dan Zillion. And we'll have copies of Monster Island, Escape from Monster Island, and Invasion of Monster Island in print to sell.

Finally, Firefly Games will make an exciting announcement at GenCon Indy about an upcoming product - a licensed new edition of a game from the (practically) prehistoric days of our hobby. Visit the Firefly Games booth on Friday for a copy of the press release with all the details.
