Received 75 pounds of games today in the mail -- just for the raffle table. What awesome sponsor could do something like that for us?



What else can I say?  Please support CoolStuff.  They're amazing.

North Star Games is supporting in a big way this year, offering up four copies of one of the most popular party games on the planet, Wits & Wagers. There's also a promise for a pretty neat event for next year's Rickcon ...!


Gaming with The Spiel!

Posted by Rick Baptist on March 30, 2013 at 1:15 PM Comments comments (0)

I recently supported THE SPIEL's Kickstarter campaign, in which they raised money to travel to Essen in Germany to cover all the latest releases and craziness. The Spiel has done a great job spreading the good word of board games for over five years now, with almost 200 audio episodes and hundreds of video conversations with game designers and publishers. Visit them at http://thespiel.net/ for more information. And yes, the great Stephen Conway and David Coleson contributed a few prizes for The Rickcon, including some great promo items. some custom Spiel Dice, and a copy of Graverobbers as well! Thanks guys!

Ravensburger enters the Rickcon with flair!

RAVENSBURGER, the giant gaming and puzzle company, has been putting out some great games recently. The FITS series is a fun one, and Asara was nominated for several awards. Imagine my surprise when I opened this 25-pound box of games! As far as I'm concerned, I LOVE RAVENSBURGER. This is how you get a table dedicated to your games at Rickcon IV! Very generous.

The Dreidels are back!

Thanks to FLASTERVENTURE, two-time Rickcon sponsor, for again adding the magic of dreidels to our con. Check out Pirate King and Operation: Maccabee for some creative fun. And hopefully, we'll have creator Dan Siskin with us as well.

Telestrations Celebration to return!

Just got off the phone with the amazing USAopoly, maker of Telestrations. As you all recall, Telestrations was a big hit last year. We will be getting MORE copies of Telestrations this year, along with a fresh new idea on how to play -- to be revealed at Rickcon!

New sponsor! INDIE Boards and Cards

Posted by Rick Baptist on March 6, 2013 at 1:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Time for a new sponsor announcement! This is a big one. INDIE BOARDS AND CARDS - and some fantastic items that you can win. That's right -- you can win them if you play them! These games will be setup and set out to play at all times. Once you play them, you can qualify to win them at the end of the evening. And I can vouch for Flash Point and The Resistance as being two of my favorites ...

Spinmaster and Stomple to appear

Posted by Rick Baptist on March 6, 2013 at 1:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Spinmaster sponsors the Rickcon once again, donating several of their great titles like the fun Stomple! I would be amiss not to recommend their current offering that you can find in Target among other places -- go check out their board game based on the app, Temple Run.

Cards Against Humanity INSANITY!

Posted by Rick Baptist on February 23, 2013 at 1:55 PM Comments comments (0)

New sponsor and a new event -- it's CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY INSANITY!  These fine folks have donated three boxes of the hilarious Cards Against Humanity game for our pleasure.  Like last year's Telestrations Celebration, a random winner at each table gets to go home with the copy.  It's going to be fun ...
