Happy New Years from Filsinger Games!  To kick off 2018 the right way we are happy to announce that later this month we will release the newest game edition for CHIKARA, entitled Young Lions.  The Young Lions Cup is the longest running honor in CHIKARA, and this past year saw the most Young Lions Cup title changes of any season in CHIKARA history.  This 8-card set will highlight many of the names that won the Cup in 2017 and will have an impact on the promotion for years to come.

The first name debuted in the Young Lions Cup tournament in 2017 and has made a “splash” since that debut.  Merlok is the Murky, Murderous Menace of the Deep and has laid a path of destruction through the CHIKARA roster in Season 18.  One of the largest competitors on the roster, he knows how to through his weight around before finishing off opponents with the Emerald Flosion.  Merlok is sure to continue his winning ways in 2018 and challenge for the CHIKARA Grand Championship.

The Kingdom Comes to ROH Top Prospects!

Ring of Honor fans have been familiar with the group dubbed the Kingdom for a number of years.  This team was originally Adam Cole, Mike Bennett and Matt Taven.  The group seemingly disbanded when Cole joined the Bullet Club and Bennett left Ring of Honor, leaving Taven on his own.  However, when the Ring of Honor 6-man Tag Team Championship tournament was announced, Taven declared that the Kingdom would return.  Taven enlisted TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia and the trio went on to win the tournament and become the inaugural ROH 6-man Tag Team champions.  Although they lost the titles, O’Ryan and Marseglia have remained a solid tag team, and with Taven behind them its only a matter of time before gold returns to the Kingdom!
