Former Colony XTreme Force Ants Join King of Trios Pack!

Back in 2013 a new trio of ants debuted in Chikara and feuded with the original Colony. They were known as the Colony XTreme Force. Since the shut down of Chikara that trio has undergone some changes. Orbit Adventure Ant was killed by the vengeful Kevin Kondron. Missile Assault Ant was convinced to shed his mask and join Kondron’s Battleborn team under the name Missile Assault Man. The 3rd member of the trio, Arctic Rescue Ant remains with his career and mask intact, but instead of battling the Colony, has reached out to help them.

At King of Trios 2016, Arctic Rescue Ant and Missile Assault Man will join forces with the Colony’s Worker Ant. This trio of former rudo ants will look to match the 2011 feat of their Colony brothers and win the King of Trios crown. They have a tough test in round one facing the Grand Champion Hallowicked and his Hexed Men.

Arctic Rescue Ant and Missile Assault Man get their first Chikara cards as part of the Chikara King of Trios 8-pack. The Chikara King of Trios game pack will debut at the King of Trios event September 3 in Easton, PA and will begin mailing soon after! To preorder the game now click here!

Lucas Calhoun Puts “King” in Chikara King of Trios Pack!

Straight from Memphis, Tennessee comes the next member of the Chikara King of Trios set— its the Rockabilly Roughneck himself Lucas Calhoun! Calhoun started off his Chikara career under a mask as Volgar, the servant of the Flood’s leader, Deucalion. After the demise of Deucalion at the season 14 finale, Volgar was aimless, until Kevin Condron convinced Volgar to remove his mask and take on a new persona truer to his roots. Enter Lucas Calhoun! The charismatic Calhoun adopted many of the mannerisms of fellow Memphis native Elvis Presley, with the jumpsuits, karate chops and hip swiveling. Calhoun has had some success teaming with fellow Condron convert Missile Assault Man, even earning 3 points on one occasion. However, since Condron’s abandonment in April, Calhoun has gone off on his own, and gained the cheers of the crowd for the first time. Can Calhoun make it in Chaikara as a solo act? Or will he find a new partner to start jamming with? The Chikara King of Trios game pack will debut at the King of Trios event September 3 in Easton, PA and will begin mailing soon after! Online presale for the game begins next Monday 8/29!

Ecuador’s Greatest Athlete Joins Chikara King of Trios Game Pack!

There aren’t enough words to describe the greatness of Ecuador’s greatest athlete, Juan Francisco De Coronado.  At least as far as he is concerned!  The brash and conceited De Coronado debuted in Chikara on the first event back after the promotion’s shut down, and quickly drew the ire of the Chikarmy with his extended ring entrances and ongoing bragging about selling out the “famed” Ecuadome on multiple occasions.

Despite his over-sized ego, he does have an impressive resume in Chikara.  Juan was the first singles competitor to amass 3 points and challenge for the Chikara Grand Championship in season 14.  He also captained the United Nations team to an impressive record in the Challenge of the Immortals in season 15.  But his greatest accomplishment was leading the winning team and being the sole survivor in the 2015 Torneo Cibernetico.  That event kicked off an intense feud with Mr. Touchdown, which recently ended in a brutal No Disqualification match, a rarity in Chikara.

Now Juan Francisco De Coronado’s sights are set on leading the United Nations team of himself, Prakash Sabar and the Proletariat Boar of Moldova to the King of Trios crown.  Can they do it?  The Chikara King of Trios game pack will debut at the King of Trios event September 3 in Easton, PA and will begin mailing soon after!

Heidi Lovelace Joins the Chikara Women’s Revolution!

When you think of the top woman wrestlers on the independent scene today the two that come to the top of the list are Princess Kimberlee and Heidi Lovelace. Princess Kimberlee was previously announced for the next Chikara expansion and now we are pleased to announce that her tag partner and singles rival Heidi Lovelace will join her in the set! This is Heidi’s first Chikara card, and she is very deserving being a former Young Lion’s Cup champion and one of the top singles stars in the promotion.

Heidi Lovelace’s story with Kimberlee started during the 2014 Young Lion’s Cup tournament, when Heidi beat Kimberlee in the semifinals of the tournament. Heidi looked to be on her way to winning the Challenge of the Immortals in 2015, but their team forfeited their points before the finals and Kimberlee’s team wound up winning, getting her the eventual Chikara Grand Championship win. Heidi Lovelace challenged Kimberlee for the championship in March unsuccessfully. In April, Heidi was eliminated from the Infinite Gauntlet by Kimberlee, costing her yet another shot at the gold. On August 21st on the Chikara live special, both women will face off again, with the winner getting her 3rd point and a chance at the Chikara Grand Championship.

Now promoters will be able to relive this huge rivalry between Princess Kimberlee and Heidi Lovelace or team the two up for a shot at the tag championship! Chikara King of Trios game pack will debut at the King of Trios event September 3 in Easton, PA and will begin mailing soon after! Get psyched, it’s gonna rock!

The Mysterious Wani Enters the Chikara Game!

The newest name for the Chikara King of Trios 8-pack is one of the newer names in Chikara itself.  Last year before the Chikara season finale Juan Francisco De Coronado was assembling his Cibernetico team to face off against the team from Dasher Hatfield.  Juan said that he found one of the most deadliest competitors in the world on his travels through the Orient to add to his international stable of competitors.  The sea serpent-like Wani made his debut at the Top Banana event and immediately showed himself to be a force to be reckoned with.

The Chikara King of Trios game pack will debut at the King of Trios event September 3rd in Easton, PA and will begin mailing soon thereafter!

Princess Kimberlee’s Reign in the CHIKARA game begins!

Coming this September is the 14th expansion to Filsinger Game’s CHIKARA series! The set will be named in honor of the crown jewel of the CHIKARA calendar, King of Trios!

However, it isn’t a king that kicks off the set, but rather a princess! Princess Kimberlee has taken CHIKARA by storm over the past 2 years, and has been an inspiration to girls and women throughout the Chikarmy. Princess Kimberlee always finds a lucky girl in the audience to guard her tiara during her match. When the match starts she is more warrior than damsel in distress, and never afraid to taken on the largest of competitors. She has shocked many an opponent with her dreaded Alligator Clutch finisher.

The legend of Princess Kimberlee really grew in 2015, when she captained a team for the Challenge of the Immortals tournament. The Crown and Court team was comprised of Jervis Cottonbelly and Los Ice Creams, a team that no one took seriously. After being in last place at midway through the tournamnt, they began to be inspired and went on a roll to reach the finals. At the season 15 finale, Crown and Court upset the huge Wrecking Crew team to win the tournament and the Golden Opportunities that came along with it. Princess Kimberlee then shocked the world later that night, cashing in her Golden Opportunity to challenge the Chikara Grand Champion Hallowicked. She was able to get the win and become the first female Grand Champion.

Chikara King of Trios game pack will debut at the King of Trios event September 3rd in Easton, PA and will begin mailing soon there after.

Swamp Monster Joins the Gentleman’s Club in Chikara Pack!

In  the world of CHIKARA, it’s quite the accomplishment to call yourself the oddest member of the roster, but one could argue that Gentleman’s Club member the Swamp Monster is just that. The Swamp Monster is just that: a walking (and wrestling) pile of swamp sludge!

Up until 2015, the Swamp Monster had only a few appearances in Chikara. However, Chuck Taylor drafted him as the final member of the Gentleman’s Club team for Challenge of the Immortals. That is a decision that Taylor seems to have regretted, as he blames the Swamp Monster for all of his team’s failures and treats him like garbage (which Swamp Monster does smell like). Despite the threats of Chuck Taylor, Swamp Monster is always a team player and a favorite of the Chikarmy.

The Swamp Monster is ready to shimmy his way into your Chikara fed as part of the Chikara Immortals 8-pack. Pre-order the game this weekend, and get ready to have slimy fun when the game ships in December!

 

The Bloc Party is Ready to Invade Chikara!


The newest trio to enter the Chikara game is the infamous Eastern European Bloc Party made up of the Proletariat Boar of Moldova, Mr. Azerbaijan and Prakash Sabar. Proloteriat Boar of Moldova is the large and imposing Gorelord of Eastern Europe. Mr. Azerbaijan is a talented mat wrestler, also voted Azerbaijan’s sexist man annually for more than a decade. Prakash Sabar is an Ex-Pakistani now living in the Republic of Georgia, who has a fondness for a certain 90’s wrestler.

These combatants entered the Chikara universe to feud with the fan favorite Baltic Siege. But after the demise of the Baltic Siege, this trio has remained in Chikara to continue to wreck havoc on the tecnicos. They joined forces with Juan Francisco de Coronado to form the United Nations team in the Challenge of the Immortals. Despite not making the finals, they did have a successful run in the tournament, and look forward to more successes in the future.

The Bloc Party are 3 of the 8 cards in the Chikara Immortals pack. The game is available for preorder on November 22 and will be mailed on December 14! Look out, the Bloc Party is taking over YOUR fed!
