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.

The Bruiserweight Completes the Best of the UK Set!

Completing the incredible Best of the UK set is perhaps the biggest name on the United Kingdom wrestling scene today, “The Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne.  Dunne is known for his brutal wrestling style and sour attitude that earned him the Bruiserweight nickname. An extremely accomplished wrestler, he has won titles throughout the UK as both a singles and tag team wrestler.  But in the past year he has finally achieved world-wide acclaim under the banner of the largest wrestling promotion in the world, and now everyone can appreciate the talent that Pete Dunne possesses.  Game fans will be eager to match up Dunne with Trent Seven and Tyler Bate both as partners and opponents and recreate some of the epic encounters they have had in recent times.

Pete Dunne joins Zack Sabre Jr., Mark Andrews, Tyler Bate, Trent Seven, Travis Banks, Mark Haskins, and Flash Morgan Webster as part of the 8-card Best of UK Wrestling game pack.  The set will debut on July 14th at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh, and begin mailing worldwide July 20th.

Mark Haskins is Hellbent on Dominating the UK Scene

The 7th name in the UK set is another man who has won multiple championships, not only in his native UK but on other continents as well!  Mark Haskins is a talented wrestler, with a combination of agility, striking and submissions that makes him a formidable foe for any challenger.  The other thing that sets “The Star Attraction” apart is his vicious mean streak towards his opponents that demonstrates his desire to win and show his superiority.  It’s this attitude that has gotten him to the top and most certainly keep him there.

Mark Haskins joins Zack Sabre Jr., Mark Andrews, Tyler bate, Trent Seven, Travis Banks and Flash Morgan Webster as part of the 8-card Best of UK Wrestling game pack.  The set will debut on July 14 at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh, and begin mailing worldwide soon soon thereafter.

The Best of the UK Set Gets the Best Tag Team. Welcome Mustache Mountain!

When it comes to the United Kingdom indie tag team scene, few teams can measure up to the accomplishments and the skill of Mustache Mountain.  The team of the burly Trent Seven and the young phenom Tyler Bate may seem odd, but is a duo that works amazingly well.  The pair has won all the major UK tag team championships and even won the CHIKARA Campeonatos de Parejas.  Now that the have won over the UK audience, they are ready to take over on wrestling’s biggest stage!

Mustache Mountain joins Zack Sabre Jr., Mark Andrews, Travis Banks and Flash Morgan Webster as part of the 8-card Best of UK Wrestling game pack.  The set will debut on July 14 at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh, and begin mailing worldwide soon soon thereafter.

The Kiwi Buzzsaw Crashes the Best of UK Set!

The newest entrant in the Best of the UK game pack differs in one important way from everyone else announced…he isn’t originally from the UK!  “The Kiwi Buzzsaw” Travis Banks was born in New Zealand and started his wrestling career there before moving to the UK 3 years ago and seeing his career really take off.  Banks has won championships in nearly every major UK promotion and is seen as one of the top wrestlers on the UK scene.  Now his intense striking wrestling style has caught the eye of a global promotion, so it’s only a matter of time before his star rises even higher.  No matter what happens, you can always count on one thing…Banks will kick out at one!

Travis Banks joins Zack Sabre Jr., Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster as part of the 8-card Best of UK Wrestling game pack.  The set will debut on July 14 at GalactiCon in Pittsburgh, and begin mailing worldwide soon soon thereafter. Get ready to add the best of the UK scene in your indie promotion! Imagine the cool promotional feuds!

Mark Andrews Flies into Best of U.K. Wrestling Set!

When it comes to high-flying wrestling in the United Kingdom, no one has done it better for as long as Mark Andrews!  The Welshman has been wrestling for over a decade and has made a major name for himself the past few years in both the US and the UK.

Andrews has won both singles and tag team gold in multiple major British promotions and continues to perform regularly.  He first appeared on the US scene in Chikara, as part of the Young Lions Cup tournament, multiple King of Trios tournaments, and winning the Rey de Voladores tournament.  He received even more global notoriety competing for multiple major US promotions, where he can be seen showing off his high-flying abilities.  Who knows what heights Mark will reach in more ways than one!

The MODfather of Professional Wrestling Debuts for Filsinger Games

Hailing from a town called Malice is one of the most unique wrestlers in the UK, who is taking the British scene and perhaps soon the worldwide scene by storm.
