GalactiCon Auction to Benefit the Family of Lyle C Williams

Each year at the Filsinger Games annual convention GalactiCon there is an auction of unique game items and wrestling memorabilia and this year is no different!  The money collected at the auction each year is donated to a cause that is near and dear to the Filsinger Games community.  This year the auction will benefit the family of the late Lyle C. Williams, a great friend to wrestling and the Filsinger Games community.

Lyle was a prolific wrestling photographer, best known for his work with CZW.  Filsinger Games fans may remember him from GalactiCon in 2016 in Philadelphia where he attended and photographed the event.  The same weekend as GalactiCon CZW will be holding a Lyle C. Williams benefit show in Voorhees, NJ.  For more information go here.

Stay tuned for a list of items available for auction.  If you are unable to attend and want to bid remotely, please contact Todd at Todd@filsingergames.com

Three Big Reveals for Promoter Prime 2019!

Last week Filsinger games announced a number of characters that will kick off the 1st quarter of the Promoter Prime subscription service.  Fans of Legends, Indies and Champions of the Galaxy can all get exactly the types of cards they want.  This week we are announcing a big card that will part of this first quarter.

Former Champion Melina Joins the Legendary Ladies Lineup

On the heels of the Legendary Ladies set we released last month, Legends Prime has one more new woman to add to your Lady’s promotion, former world champion Melina! The Los Angles native broke into the national scene in the early 2000’s as a manager. While an effective manager, helping her team win the tag team titles, it was a title of her own that she then desired. In 2007 she accomplished that feat, which she would repeat 4 times. Although there are many memorable things about Melina, perhaps her flexibility and her entrance showcasing that flexibility are what many will remember her for the most. Regardless, Melina will make a great addition to anyone’s fed.

Jonah Rock Joins the Indies Prime Set

The biggest man in the Indies Prime for the 1st quarter of the year is the Australian born Jonah Rock. Rock is an 11-year vet of the resurgent Australian Indie scene. Besides Australia, he has spent some considerable time in Japan, and more recently has made his name more global visiting some of the biggest indie promotions in the US and Europe. Jonah’s time on the indies has come to an end, as he is joining the major leagues, but Promoters can still book him in Indie Dream matches thanks to Promoter Prime!

The Youngest Son of Janus Enters the FTR

Janus the Overman had 6 beautiful sons. All of them big, strong, tall and handsome. Each of them athletic record holders in Dimension X. Uranus was his 7th and final son. Born small and weak and never living up to his brothers accomplishments, Uranus escapes Dimension X to prove himself in the FTR and finally make his ignoring father proud. Uranus should be a sympathetic character – after all he’s just a kid desperate to get his dad’s attention. The problem is however, while Uranus shares none of his father’s physical gifts, he is not missing any of the elitist arrogance passed down by Janus. Will Uranus prove to be a feel good underdog, or just an annoying Gordion snot?

BRITISH INDEPENDENT LEGEND JODY FLEISCH KICKS OFF INDIES PRIME!

Building off the Best of UK Indies set in 2018, a true British Independent legend is joining Indies Prime to kick off 2019.  The high flying Jody Fleisch was all over the burgeoning European scene in the early 2000’s and had some appearances in ROH and CZW.  However, he has had a career resurgence in the past couple years and is appearing more regularly around the Independent scene in both the UK and the US.

MAD MAXUS TOURS THE GALAXY WITH NEW HITS IN COTG PRIME!

The band is back together! After nearly breaking up over creative differences (namely Electric Axe cheating like crazy and getting the team disqualified) Mad Maxus is touring again with hits like MAXUS ATTACKS US (Totally Awesome power bombs Axe onto the downed opponent) and CROWD SURFING (in singles matches, Electric Axe tosses his opponent into a crowd of his fans and hops back into the ring for a sneaky count out victory).  Order now and get the killer new revamped ELECTRIC AXE playing card in COTG Promoter Prime along with CHAMELEON and one more new comer ready to arrive in Dimension Y next week!

Get Psyched—2019 Will be a Great Gaming Year!

The New Year is here and with it comes the excitement of great game releases ahead!

At Filsinger Games we’re now going into our 33rd year and just as strong as ever!

Even stronger. We’ve got three main game lines and all kinds of opportunities for expansion. I’m going to give our loyal promoters a sneak peek at what’s coming in 2019 so hang on!

I’m going to start with our flagship game which is, of course, CHAMPIONS OF THE GALAXY. You can count on—like you’ve counted on for 33 years—the latest annual release in July. It’ll be game year 2135 and counting! The amazing story of the return of GODSEND will continue to shock with new developments! On top of that look for another color update, INVASION 2089, in the second half of the year.

Our second major line is our legendary LEGENDS OF WRESTLING Card Game series. First off is our tribute to the women of wrestling with a game pack coming in February. Watch for those announcements soon! You can also look forward to not one but two Legends expansions this year! Current schedule has one for July (another astounding GalactiCon is coming!) and one during the holidays. Hey, if you’re lucky, we may release another theme pack during the year, but keep watching to see what we can cook up!

Third is our BEST OF INDIES series, which starts with our BEST OF FILSINGER GAMES starter set. We will release new wrestlers in expansion packs to give you more new blood in your game feds. We LOVE releasing game cards for Indy wrestlers and not just for our fans, but for the Indy wrestlers themselves. They love it! To them an official FG card is like a Topp’s baseball card! We also love to focus the spotlight on Indy promotions throughout the U.S. and world. Watch for a couple BEST OF INDIES packs coming in 2019!

For other game companies that would be more than enough to release in one year, but not us! We’ve got a few other card packs we’re working on and when we have details you’ll be the first to know! And maybe not just cards but another surprise or two as well.

Our goal this year, as always, is to conquer the game galaxy! To that end we will be involved in some promotions to get the word out to wrestling fans. Loyal promoters know our games are the best and we want to continue to spread the word at live events and media promotions. YOU CAN HELP! If you plan to attend any live wrestling shows this year and can help sell our merchandise at a table, let us know. Maybe we can work something out. We are hoping to have a cool promotion at the Cauliflower Alley Club reunion this spring.

In addition, if you can post articles or reviews of our games, let us know that also. And if you can help us schedule any podcast appearances or magazine articles, contact us. Our loyal fans are in the trenches and we know that many of you have some great contacts. If we work together we can conquer the game galaxy anew in 2019!

Our team at Federation Headquarters is as strong as ever, composed mainly of game fans that love creating our game cards as much as fans (and we ourselves) love playing them!

Until the Galactic Punisher gets his color update (it’s coming!)…
