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…

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!
