Promoter Prime 2019 Available to Preorder

 

 

The 2019 year for Promoter Prime is ready to kick off.  Based on the success of the program last year, we are keeping Promoter prime as 3 separate products for Legends, Indies and COTG, as well as offering Online and Print versions, with combo pricing for ordering multiple versions.  There will be 3 cards released per line each quarter of 2019.  See below for the ordering info.  The Q1 cards will begin shipping and will appear online at the end of March.

ALEXIS SMIRNOFF IS 1 OF 2 FAN SELECTED CARDS in LEGENDS PRIME TO KICK OFF 2019!

LOW Promoter Prime 2019 is upon us and Alexis Smirnoff is the first entrant, as selected by YOU, the LOW faithful!   Smirnoff is an international superstar, having competed across North America and Japan.   His devastating HEART PUNCH has left a trail of injured bodies across the globe!  Smirnoff has formed a championship tag team with fellow Russian Ivan Koloff.   Will they reunite to challenge your tag team champions?

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!)…

Q3 Promoter Prime Legends Cards…The British Are Coming!

    

Legends of Wrestling fans, get ready because the British are Coming!  That’s right, on the heels the Best of the UK set bringing some of the current day British stars to our Indie line, now Promoter Prime is bringing in 3 of the top British wrestlers from the past to the color Legends game.

First off is the man synonymous with the term Legend of British wrestling, Johnny Saint.  Saint debuted in the 1950’s and had a unique fighting style of scientific holds and defensive maneuvers that made him a perfect fit for the World of Sport television show that he was a huge star on.

Next up is a man that has more world wide TV recognition, Dave Taylor.  Taylor possessed a repertoire of both power moves and technical wrestling holds that made him a formidable opponent during his heyday of the late 90’s and early 2000’s.

Finally, the third man in this quarter’s release is one of the most requested color Legends cards, and for good reason as he is one of the most colorful men in the history of wrestling…”Exotic” Adrian Street!  The flamboyant Street was one of the most nefarious villains in both England and the southern United States.

Promoter Prime cards for Q3 will begin mailing shortly to all subscribers.  To begin your subscription and and get all the cards we have released this year check out the Promoter Prime page in the Filsinger Games Store.

Q3 Promoter Prime Indie Cards Announced

Get ready indie wrestling fans, the newest batch of Promoter Prime cards is coming your way soon!

First up is the exciting luchadora Thunder Rosa, who has been exciting fans in Mexico and the southern US in both singles and tag action. She is a great addition to any women’s promotion.

Next up is the annual card from Olde Wrestling, this time for the infamous gangster “Babyface” Bruno Moretti.  Bruno is out to take on the moonshiners and anyone else that causes trouble for his boss.  Hey fuggettaboutit!

Hailing from Japan is the Tokyo Monster Kahagas.  A veteran of over 15 years in the ring, Kahagas has terrorized the US independent scene and has won numerous NWA titles, including the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.

Stay tuned next week as we reveal the 3 Legends of Wrestling cards debuting in Q3.  Promoter Prime cards will begin mailing in September to all subscribers.

Success at Game On Expo Caps Off a Great Summer!

 

We’re taking over!

Filsinger Games stormed into downtown Phoenix for the annual Game On Expo, which is expanding more and more into tabletop gaming. And what better way than with Filsinger Games along for the ride?

We featured two major tournaments on Friday and Saturday. April won a tough tournament on Friday by having Jim Duggan beat Nikolai Volkoff. The action was particularly wild on Saturday with a long finals bout between Randy Savage and Curt Hennig. Savage finally pulled it out for new game fan, Eric!

Tom made some potentially fruitful contacts in Phoenix and there may be some surprises in store in the coming months!

Go to our twitter page for more photos from Game On Expo.

We had a great summer, starting with promotions in Pittsburgh, then Detroit, and now Phoenix. The madness is spreading, there’s no stopping it. In our fourth decade we’re hotter than ever!

 

Filsinger Games Will be at Phoenix Game On Expo August 10-12

Here comes a big convention so mark your calendar if you are in the southwest!

Arizona’s largest gaming convention is coming on August 10-12 at the Phoenix Convention Center and Filsinger Games will be there!

Tom will headline a panel about making it in the indie tabletop game market, should be fun!

Our Southwest Warriors will be out in full force (loyal game fans) helping at the Filsinger Games table. Come visit us!

We’re taking over Arizona! It was only a matter of time.

Watch for photos and highlights in the weeks ahead!

Filsinger Games Madness Still Spreading Throughout the Land!

You can’t keep good games down!

Not that we were ever down, but Filsinger Games madness is still as strong as ever—even stronger!

I’ve just returned from great times on the East Coast with the highlight being our annual GalactiCon event, which took place in Pittsburgh on July 13-15. What a stellar event! It’s always a pleasure to see our long-time, loyal promoters, but also new fans that have joined the madness.

The annual Trivia Challenge was as entertaining with game fans showing off their expertise. The event was won by Mike Melesky in a tough battle with Troy Xavier. In addition, the Auction was as entertaining a “show” as always with game fans sneaking in their bids at the last second, like a run-in during a wrestling show! The crowd was riled.

Several fans had some interesting ideas for next year’s GalactiCon and I would share their stories, but I’ve been sworn to secrecy. They need time to develop their ideas and will be proposing them in the days and weeks ahead. One fan had a very creative idea that (if it comes through) will be a big highlight next year!

I also loved the exclusive “first” release of KINGDOM COME 2134. So much work goes in to each game edition that it’s finally all worth it when fans see the game and PLAY!

I also met with game fans during a game store appearance in Garden City, Michigan at Pandemonium Games and Hobbies. A blast from the past was meeting a game fan, Frank, who colored his original black and white CotG cards. Remember when our fans used to do that? It’s always interesting to see the creative interpretations game fans have for the colors of the original, classic characters.

Meeting game fans on the road is always a treat for me because these are fans that aren’t necessarily active on the boards or our fan community, but still are loyal promoters all the way.

I hope to have some of these rewarding experiences in August when Filsinger Games will be at the largest game convention in Phoenix, Game On Expo, on August 10-12. I’ll be headlining a panel about making it in the independent tabletop market and hopefully meeting many new game fans. Several long-time promoters have offered to help at the Filsinger Games booth and we’re going to blitz Phoenix with Filsinger Games madness!

There’s no stopping this light-speed interstellar space ship. We’ve been producing fun action games for over 30 years, there’s no reason to ever stop. Our fan base is as big and strong as ever and we keep adding new blood to the mix in the form of new players. This is a company built on the foundations of fun, loyalty, and creativity. Our motto is people first, fun first, the rest will take care of itself.

And just a reminder for history buffs—my blog INSIDE TOM’S BRAIN has been around (off and on) since the 1990s, making it one of the longest continuing blogs in the history of cyberspace! Were you with us when it started?

THANKS FOR BEING PART OF THIS AMAZING RIDE!

Enjoy the games and when we’re in your area, be sure to stop by and visit. And start making plans for GALACTICON for next year! Not just plans, a COMMITMENT. It’s usually the second weekend in July and the only way to make sure you’ll be there is to CLEAR OUT TIME NOW. This is a matter of priorities and your loyal game-playing friends are counting on you!

Until Godsend has a bad hair day…

TOM
