Its Time to Put Some Sauce on the Best of the Indies 2020 with Alex Zayne

The latest addition to the Best of the Indies 2020 game edition is the sensational high flyer from Kentucky, Alex Zayne.  While Zayne has become one of the most popular wrestlers on the indie scene in the past year, he actually began his in ring career back in 2005.  A viral clip of him in the summer of 2019 put him on the map and now he is appearing at all the top independent promotions, including some recent matches with Ring of Honor.  The only thing that rivals his innovative offense, is his obsession with tacos, which is the theme of the names of these innovative moves.  So next time you grab a taco, or book your indie promotion, don’t forget “The Sauce”.

Alex Zayne joins Warhorse, Ace Austin and 5 other brand new wrestlers in the Best of the Indies 2020 game pack.  The set will be released in late May and will be available for presale Monday May 4th.  Stay tuned each Wednesday for more announcements!

Centra: Badlands of Tarkania – A Prequel Tale: Part One

The following story starts the chronicle the 3 characters being released in Q2 2020 COTG Prime as part of The SURVIVORS. Badlands of Tarkania, Centra: A Prequel Story.  Stay tuned for parts 2 and 3 with more character art reveals in May.

TIMELINE – Unknown Settlements, Badlands of Tarkania, Centra

Day 1

The first case of an unknown virus in a remote settlement located in the Badlands of Tarkania.  Scientists are so far unable to determine its origin.

Day 8

The novel virus has been spreading rapidly.  Officials have been working to slow the spread, but the infection rate is rising rapidly.  After going thorough contact tracing, Centra health officials believe that all cases seem to be linked to a single individual who had spent time at the Ruins of Antilia. No further information about the individual is available.  A temporary hospital is being constructed because the remote settlement does not have the facilities to handle the large number of infections that are being reported.

Day 10

The first death from the “Antilia Virus” (as the media has dubbed it) occurred today.  More and more members of the remote settlement have been coming forward with symptoms, which include numbness in extremities, severe headache and difficulty breathing.

Day 20

Chaos has consumed the settlement.  In just over two weeks, ten percent of the population has died from the Antilia Virus.  Dead bodies are beginning to pile up in the streets as there are no real coroner facilities in the settlement.  Those not yet infected are fighting among each other, stealing from one another or worse. The entire settlement and three other settlements nearby have become lawless. Centra officials have quarantined the entire area and no one can get in or out.

Day 40

The worst nightmares have come true. The settlements are under attack from a zombie apocalypse! Over half the population in the area has been killed by the rabid Antilia Virus.  13 days after death, Antilia Virus victims have been coming back from the dead. Nobody is safe. If you can hear this transmission, find cover now!

[Sounds of zombies breaking down doors can be heard]

Be safe!  May God have mercy on us all!

[Gun shots]


[Screams are heard before the transmission cuts out and all we have is dead air.]

Day 41

An automated news cam catches three Survivors walking carefully down a set of train tracks in a dust storm. They are scavenging abandoned box cars for gas, weapons, food, medicine and tools.

Day 42

All hope is lost.  Zombies are everywhere all across the settlement and the surrounding area. If there are any survivors still out there, they are alone. All communication has been lost.  The last roaming news cam stopped broadcasting.

Day 45 (All footage hereafter was recovered from cams with that were found in the recovery effort)

A hulking figure stands with slumped shoulders leaning against a wall in an ally.  Dead bodies of zombies the Survivors just killed lay at their feet. The second man quietly digs through the pockets of the dead, collecting their supplies and weapons. A third man is pacing around with a bat.  He exudes an excitement that stands in stark contrast to his fellow survivors.

Thriller: WOOO!  Hell yeah! What a rush! You think there are any more coming?

His compatriots don’t respond, but continue to go about their business.

The Deck is Stacked for Best of the Indies 2020 with the Addition of Ace Austin

Hailing from Atlantic City, NJ is the One True Ace himself, Ace Austin!  Ace got his start in the CZW Dojo, becoming a prominent part of Dojo Wars and eventually winning the CZW Wired championship.  As one of pro wrestling’s most innovative and fastest rising stars, he branched out on a global basis, winning gold in multiple countries.  Now fans can watch the Ace show off his verbal, aerial and technical prowess on national television, where he continues his championship winning ways.  There is no doubt that his future will continue to be Aces Up.

Ace Austin joins Warhorse and 6 other brand new wrestlers in the Best of the Indies 2020 game pack.  The set will be released in late May.  Stay tuned each Wednesday for more announcements!

Erick Stevens Kicks Off Indies Prime Q2

Kicking off the 2nd quarter of Promoter Prime is a highly requested Indie wrestling game card for Erick Stevens!  Stevens’s original Filsinger Game card debuted in 2009 as part of the Legends of the Future series, but this is his first color game card.  Stevens had his original run on the indies in the 2000’s, winning the Wrestling Observer Rookie of the Year in 2007 and culminating his career at the time in Ring of Honor in 2010.  Then after nearly a decade away he returned to the indies in 2019 to see the excitement of the indie movement of today first hand.  He was set to retire again in April in his hometown of Tampa, but due to the unexpected cancellation of shows this spring Erick announced his career would continue after the shutdown to end things the right way.  In the mean time Filsinger Games fans will get to play out all the match ups we missed out on the past month and all the other indie dream matches we hope to still see.

Promoter Prime Q2 2020 will mail with our May game releases at the end of May.  You can subscribe to Promoter Prime (Indies, Legends and COTG) any time and receive all cards released up to that point in the year and future cards on a once a quarter basis.  Tabletop and Online options are available HERE.

Best of the Indies 2020 Rules with the Addition of Warhorse!

What better way to kick off the lineup announcements for our Best of the Indies 2020 game edition than with the Independent Wrestling champion himself Warhorse!  This midwest standout started his career as part of the Viking War Party faction before breaking out on his own.  Now with a new darker attitude and look and plenty of face paint Warhorse has stepped up his game to be one of the best performers on the Indie scene today.  Known for his unique third-person promos featuring loud music and lots of screaming, fans have flocked to support Warhorse.  He defeated Erick Stevens in September 2019 to win the IWTV Independent Wrestling championship and has gone on defend the championship a record 37 times!  There is no telling how long his title reign will last, because as Warhorse will tell you himself, WARHORSE RULES ASS!

The Best of the Indies 2020 game pack will feature 8 brand new wrestlers to Filsinger Games and will be released in late May.  Stay tuned each Wednesday for more announcements!
