The Inhuman PCO Shocks the Ring of Honor Roster!

In the 1990’s French Canadian wrestler Pierre Carl Ouellet was winning gold in major international promotions.  In the 2000’s he returned back to home to wrestle in the French Canadian indies before ultimately retiring from the ring in 2010.  However, a few years ago PCO returned to wrestling, but in a very different form.  Not only had his career been resurrected, but now it appears that he himself may have been resurrected from the dead!  PCO now stands for Perfect Creation One, and the monster-like being has show inhuman strength both in the squared circle and outside of it.  Many videos have surfaced online of the mysterious figure Destro torturing PCO and demonstrating incredible feats of strength, which have only intensified his lore.  Now PCO has joined Ring of Honor as part of Marty Scurll’s Villain Enterprises, and there is no telling what kind of destruction awaits members of the ROH roster.

PCO leads off the roster for the Ring of Honor Supercard of Honor 8-pack.  This game edition will begin mailing in late May.

2 New Game Editions Coming This Spring!

       

Before our big summer time releases, there are still 2 new game editions coming in May to tide game fans over!

First of all of Indie fans, the new Ring of Honor set is coming soon than you thought!  Hot on the heels of the Ring of Honor’s debut at the World’s Most Famous Arena, a new ROH expansion is in the works.  While the last set came out over the holidays, Ring of Honor has had some major changes to its roster and many of those new names will debut for Filsinger Games as well.  Q2 of Indies Prime will feature Ring of Honor talent as well.

There will also be a new Champions of the Galaxy game edition debuting in May and will also tie into Q2 of COTG Prime.  More details on this shocking new game edition will be coming soon.

Legends fans also have some goodness coming in Q2 of Legends Prime with 3 brand new names, and then a new Expansion set coming this summer featuring some long requested names!

The weather outside is warming up and things at Filsinger games are getting hot too!

From the Mushroom Kingdom in Canada come the Super Smash Brothers!

When you think of Canadian independent tag teams of the past 10 years, there is one duo that immediately springs to mind as one of the most prolific…the Super Smash Brothers.  Player Uno and Player Dos (often also known as Stupefied) are a unique duo with a fun offense that often plays homage to popular video games.  Although they like to have fun, they are serious about winning, and with Uno’s strength and Dos’ high flying, they have certainly done plenty of that.  In addition to winning accolades in Canada, the duo has also won tag team titles in the US, including the Chikara Campeonatos de Parejas.  Although the duo has undergone a darker change to their personalities in recent years, fans still remember the classic tag team fondly and can now include them in their Filsinger Games Indie promotion!

Player Uno and Player Dos join Davey Boy Smith Jr., Teddy Hart, “Speedball” Mike Bailey, RJ City, Tyson Dux and Brent Banks in the Best of Canada 8 Pack.  The set is available now HERE and has already begun shipping!

Veteran Canadian Duo Joins the Best of Canada Lineup!

Joining the Best of Canada set is a pair of veteran Canadian Indie wrestlers who have recently formed a partnership, Tyson Dux and Brent Banks. Tyson Dux is a 20 year veteran, with plenty of accolades on the Canadian indie scene, as well as some notable appearances in major US promotions including Ring of Honor and a prestigious international Cruiserweight tournament. Brent Banks is a 13-year vet of the Canadian indies and is one of Ontario’s best kept secrets. The charismatic and athletic Banks has won a number of titles throughout Ontario, including a recent tag team title reign with Tyson Dux.

Tyson Dux and Brent Banks join Davey Boy Smith Jr., Teddy Hart, RJ City and 3 other wrestlers in the Best of Canada 8 Pack.  The set is available to preorder HERE and will begin shipping on March 30th.

Davey Boy Smith Jr. Headlines the Best of Canada set

The latest name in the Best of Canada set is not only a part of Canadian wrestling’s most storied family, but is also the son of one of the most popular British wrestlers of all time.  That’s right Davey Boy Smith Jr. will be getting his first Filsinger Games playing card.  This big man has wrestled for all of the top wrestling promotions in the world, and while he has many singles accolades, as a tag wrestler he has acheived gold in all of the top promotions he worked for.  How will you book Davey Boy Smith Jr.?  Will you tag him with his cousin Teddy Hart or perhaps with the obnoxious Lance Hoyt?  Regardless he is sure to make a major impact on your Indie fed.

Davey Boy Smith Jr. joins Teddy Hart, RJ City and 5 other wrestlers in the Best of Canada 8 Pack.  The set is available to preorder HERE and will begin shipping on March 30th.

From the TV screen to your Indie Fed…its RJ City!

The wrestler in the best of Canada set, may be getting as much publicity from TMZ as he is from the Indie wrestling world, its the handsome and charismatic RJ City.  RJ has never shied away from a TV camera, being on kids TV shows as a youngster and now having his wrestling performances syndicated in over 100 countries.  He gained some recent notoriety as an opponent and reluctant tag team partner of Hollywood’s David Arquette.  RJ is fond of Hollywood, but less so the stars of today vs. the stars of 40 years ago.  Regardless he will make a fun addition to anyone’s indie fed.

RJ City joins Teddy Hart in the Best of Canada 8-pack coming in late March.

Oh Canada! The Newest Best of the Indies Set is Coming Soon!

Last summer Filsinger Games started its Best of the Indies series with the Best of the UK set.  After the success of that game we are following up with another highly requested Indie Wrestling destination….Canada!

What better way to kick off the Best of Canada set, than with a member of the most famous wrestling family, the Harts!  Teddy Hart was born into wrestling and has always had tons of talent and charisma.  Although he has never performed consistently in the major leagues, in recent years he has made a major splash on the indie scene popping up in a number of promotions.  His unique offensive maneuvers and high flying moves make his matches a spectacle to witness.

The Best of Canada 8-card expansion will be released in late March.  Stay tuned for more names over the coming weeks!

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!)…
