Filsinger Games Announces Best of the Indies Series!

Since 2011, Filsinger Games has been producing game editions for some of the biggest promotions in indie wrestling.  Some fantastic wrestlers have been included in these game editions over the years, but often there are wrestlers that are popular among a number of promotions that Filsinger Games has not worked with.  The newest Indie wrestling game line will help find a home for wrestlers that game fans are itching to see and may not be released through other partnerships.  This summer we release the first Best of the Indies game edition!

This first Best of the Indies game edition will focus on talent that has built their reputation in the United Kingdom.  While each of the 8 wrestlers have made their name in the UK, each of them have wrestled in the US and throughout the world.  The first name we are happy to announce for this set exemplifies that global presence…Zack Sabre Jr.! Sabre was first part of the Evolve 2 set, but has continued to build up his profile among some of the major pro wrestling organizations in the UK, US, and Japan.  This newly updated card will highlight his current move set and stature in the wrestling world.

Best of the Indies: United Kingdom will feature 8 cards, including mostly wrestlers making their debut in the Filsinger Games universe.  The set will debut on July 14th at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh, and begin mailing worldwide soon after that. Join us in Pittsburgh for the exclusive first release!

Colored Version of Classic Spike Card to be GalactiCon 2018 Giveaway!

Long-time Champions of the Galaxy fans will remember one of the early advertisements for the game that appeared in the pages of Pro Wrestling Illustrated.  The ad featured the face-painted, headbanging villain Spike, with the quote “Hey Mom, the Babysitter’s Here!”  The ad and the artwork got the attention of many soon-to-be COTG promoters.  Now 30 years later that artwork is updated and immortalized as part of a special edition color card!

The card will be an exclusive giveaway to attendees at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh on July 14th and 15th.  Can’t make it to the big weekend? You can still get a copy of the card if you are a COTG Prime 2018 subscriber before July 15th, and the card will come with the rest of the summer cards.

If you haven’t made your plans yet, check out all the details at the GalactiCon page HERE.

For those unable to travel, stay turned for more information on how you can still participate in all the fun wherever you are in the world!

New Online Game System Scheduled to go Live on March 28!

Great news, Online fans!  We’ve made upgrades to our games that will make them safer and more secure than ever. There are even some improvements, so let’s get to it!

First, we have updated the game code to make it more secure and to migrate our systems to a new server. Larry Swank, the original architect of the system, has led the team working on this project.

There are also some cool upgrades, like improvements to the Card Editor and more options with the PBP Simulator, but the biggest changes are the ones that protect the system and make it more stable. The new Online version will serve as a base for Filsinger Games to make more upgrades in the future.

After months of work behind-the-scenes our last major step is to migrate the Online game system to the new server. This will necessitate a down period where the system is unavailable. This is expected to last no more than one day. We are currently planning to make this move on Tuesday, March 27 starting at approximately 9 AM EDT. We apologize for any inconvenience…but it’ll be worth it!

We promised we would improve our Online games and we’re doing it! We thank our great fans for their patience. Get those virtual dice ready because we’re better than ever!

Promoter Prime 2018 Coming Soon…With a Whole New Look

2018 will be the fifth year of Promoter Prime, and we aren’t resting on our past success with this popular card subscription service!  In fact, we’re expanding it and making it more flexible to accommodate our great fans.  We’re also increasing the number of cards offered!

We will now offer three different products under Promoter Prime:  LEGENDS PRIME, INDIES PRIME and COTG PRIME!  3 cards will be released for each product line each quarter- that is 12 cards a year for a total of 36 throughout the year to keep your feds running at a fever pitch!

LEGENDS PRIME will feature cards for our popular LEGENDS OF WRESTLING series that honors the history of this great business, while INDIES PRIME will honor the up-and-coming talent in the independent wrestling scene.  COTG PRIME will focus on Tom Filsinger’s COTG-verse.  It will include alternative versions of existing characters, plus new characters for your GWF, FTR and other federations.  Surprises are guaranteed!

One such surprise is the artwork above.  PSYCLONE was originally sketched by famous GWF artist Chuck Carter many moons ago with help from fans attending Galacticon. Unfortunately, Chuck got busy with real work, and his inspiring sketch became the character Payback, drawn by a different artist. But with the help of loyal Filsinger Games fans, the photo of Chuck’s sketch was found, and PSYCLONE finally gets his shot in the GWF on Kronos!  He will be part of COTG PRIME in Q1 2018.

All of our PROMOTER PRIME products will be available for our Filsinger Games Online system.  Since game fans demanded it, we will also have a printed card option for tabletop play.  No one will need to print out their own cards again!  Game fans will be able to subscribe to just one of the product lines or all 3 at a discount.  Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for specific pricing and for on-sale information.

2018 will be a big year for Filsinger Games fans and this new evolution of Promoter Prime is just the beginning!
