Abdullah the Butcher Looks to Carve Up the Competition in Legends!

Headlining the newest Legends set that has a focus on hardcore wrestlers is perhaps one of the most feared hardcore wrestlers of all time, Abdullah the Butcher!

Rising to fame in the height of the territory era, Abdullah the Butcher was a major attraction that brought a unique level of violence that translated into big business for territories that utilized him.  He rarely stayed in one area for long, moving from promotion to promotion and selling out venues around the world. Abdullah had a number of memorable bouts, but some of the most notable were against his most heated rival Bruiser Brody.  There is no doubt that promoters everywhere are eager to book this classic match-up in their fed!

Abdullah the Butcher joins Shane Douglas, Killer Kowalski, Sandman, Justin Credible, Al Snow, and Ox Baker in the 10-card Legends Expansion Set 4.  This game edition and Special Edition cards for Francine and Bill Alfonso will debut July 13th at GalactiCon in the Philadelphia area!  The game will begin mailing to customers by July 22nd.  These games and the latest Champions of the Galaxy game edition GWF Sudden Death 2135 are available to preorder right now!

Killer Kowalski Brings His Viciousness to Legends!

The newest addition to the Legends Expansion Set IV lineup is one of the meanest villains the sport of pro wrestling has ever seen, Killer Kowalski!  Kowalski started his career as a fan favorite, but came to be best known as a vicious heel.  A major TV attraction in the 1950’s, Kowaski was just as known in Japan and Canada as he was in the US.  Kowalski is known for his Kowalski Claw and his Bombs Away knee drop.  The later move was responsible for Kowalski’s opponent losing his ear an one of the most infamous moments in wrestling history!  Will you book Killer Kowalski against former opponents like Bobo Brazil and Buddy Rogers, or will you have him face more recent day tough guys like The Sandman and Shane Douglas?

Killer Kowalski joins Shane Douglas, Sandman, Justin Credible, Al Snow and Ox Baker in the 10 card Legends Expansion Set 4.  This game edition and Special Edition cards for Francine and Bill Alfonso will debut July 13th at GalactiCon in the Philadelphia area!  The game will begin mailing to customers by July 22nd.  These games and the latest Champions of the Galaxy game edition GWF Sudden Death 2135 are available to preorder right now!

The Newest Legends Expansion isn’t Just the Coolest it’s Justin Credible!

The next wrestler in Legends Expansion is another Hardcore Icon, the incomparable Justin Credible.  Credible rose to prominence during the hardcore movement of the 1990’s and captured a World Championship during this time.  Credible is an accomplished singles wrestler, but may be best known for his teamwork in a number of successful tag teams.  He is often seen bringing his trusty Singapore cane to ringside with him, which often finds its way into his matches.  What will happen when you book Justin Credible against fellow Singapore cane carrying wrestler The Sandman and recreate their violent and bloody feud?

Justin Credible joins Shane Douglas, Sandman, Al Snow and Ox Baker in the 10 card Legends Expansion Set 4.  This game edition and Special Edition cards for Francine and Bill Alfonso will debut July 13th at GalactiCon in the Philadelphia area!  The game will begin mailing to customers by July 22nd.  These games and the latest Champions of the Galaxy game edition GWF Sudden Death 2135 are available to preorder right now!

The Legends Game Gets Franchised! Shane Douglas and Francine to be Released in July!

So many of the most successful wrestlers in the 90’s were ones that sparked controversy and had an attitude.  That is something that can absolutely be said for the newest name in Legends, “The Franchise” Shane Douglas!  Douglas had some success on the American wrestling scene for some time, but it was once he became the face of an outlaw wrestling promotion in a controversial way that he truly began to shine.  Douglas is a multi-time World Champion and has the wrestling skills to compete with the best, not needing to rely on hardcore antics, but happy to mix it up if it better proves his dominance.  Douglas was often aided in his bouts by his “Head Cheerleader” Francine.  Will this duo stake their claim to the World Title in your Legends fed?

Shane Douglas joins Sandman, Al Snow and Ox Baker in the 10 card Legends Expansion Set 4, while Francine will be available in a Special Edition 2-pack with Bill Alfonso!  Both Legends releases will debut July 13th at GalactiCon in the Philadelphia area!  The game will begin mailing to customers by July 22nd.  These games and the latest Champions of the Galaxy game edition GWF Sudden Death 2135 are available to preorder right now!

What Does Everybody Want? What Does Everybody Need? Al Snow is in Legends!

The next name for Legends Expansion Set 4 is another extreme wrestler ready to join your Legends fed, Al Snow!  Although, unlike the Sandman he isn’t known for bringing a Singapore cane to ringside, but rather a mannequin head.  Struggling to find his way, Snow began talking to his imaginary friend “Head” and bringing it to ringside, a gesture that the fans loved and still remember fondly to this day.  Snow went on to be well know for his hardcore antics winning gold on multiple occasions.  Since then he has gone on to be a renowned wrestling trainer and mentor to many younger stars.

Al Snow joins Sandman and Ox Baker in the 10 card Legends Expansion Set 4 debuting July 13th at GalactiCon in the Philadelphia area!  For more information on attending GalactiCon visit the GalactiCon page on our website.  The game will begin mailing to other customers shortly after.

Ox Baker to Unleash the Heart Punch in the Newest Legends Expansion

The next name for Legends Expansion Set 4 is the “Great Heart Puncher” himself, Ox Baker!  One of the most feared wrestlers of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, Baker traveled all throughout the territories punishing opponents and frightening fans everywhere he went.  What Baker is known best for is his devastating move, which was banned in multiple states and even said to kill more than one competitor.  Who will he unleash the Heart Punch on first in your Legends promotion?

Ox Baker joins Sandman in the 10 card Legends Expansion Set 4 debuting July 13th at GalactiCon in the Philadelphia area!  For more information on attending GalactiCon visit the GalactiCon page on our website.  The game will begin mailing to other customers shortly after.

The Sandman Enters The Next Legends Set!

Leading off the lineup of Legends Expansion Set 4 is none other than the Hardcore Icon, the Sandman!  Most well know for his escapades in the land of the extreme, the Sandman only loves one thing more than drinking a beer and that is delivering punishment to his opponents.  Brandishing his Singapore cane the Sandman is ready for a hardcore match against any opponent.

Get your music ready for his epic entrance into your Legends of Wresting fed this July when the Sandman and Legends Expansion Set 4 debut at GalactiCon in the Philadelphia area!  For more information on attending GalactiCon visit the GalactiCon page on our website.

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!)…
