Let’s ring in the new year with big news—GalactiCon 2018 is scheduled for July 13-15 in Pittsburgh!

Our incredible annual game convention will feature several exclusive game releases, including the latest Champions of the Galaxy expansion (2134, at yet unnamed) and more to be announced before the convention.

Pittsburgh will be a perfect host city with cool events that fans can attend as well as a convenient location for many of our fans to drive or fly.

On Friday night convention-goers are invited to attend the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game together as a group. Then on Saturday evening there will be a great IWC (International Wrestling Cartel) indie wrestling show.  As if that’s not enough the WWE will be running its Battleground PPV in Pittsburgh on Sunday!

More announcements coming in the days ahead including specific locations for all the events. But you can start planning now—this is going to be one of the BIG ONES! Come join your partners in crime as we celebrate games, wrestling, and just plain fun!

 

 

FTR Teaser #7: ASTARTE

GWF fans still talk about the time legendary manager Doomsayer kidnapped a man named Astarte from Eridanus and swapped bodies with him. Many years later the story comes full circle as the son of Astarte enters FTR!

FTR fans brace for a natural feud between Astarte and Disciple of Terror! “Disciple of Terror pays tribute to a fightee who took shortcuts and aligned himself with the lowest scum in the GWF! It is my mission to show you the errors in your misplaced faith!” Battles between Legacy of Astarte and Disciple of Terror are sure to rock the FTR!

Astarte is created by promoter winner Pete Beck! Awesome creation, Pete! Learn Astarte’s full shocking story when you order FTR 2!
FTR Set 2 is available to preorder by clicking HERE.  You can also order the complete 2017 Holiday Package including Ring of Honor Top Prospects, Legends: Expansion Pack I, and 2 Legends SE cards by clicking HERE.  Games will begin mailing on December 14th.

FTR Teaser #6: MOONLIGHT

The spotlight shines on our 6th FTR teaser – MOONLIGHT! Moonlight is the great granddaughter of Genghis Khan. She is the historic first-ever FTR female competitor! Can she also become the first FTR female to graduate to the GWF? Learn Moonlight’s incredible tale when you order FTR 2!

Moonlight is created by promoter winner Shane Sullivan! Wait until you read Shane’s story for Moonlight. You’ll love it! Great work, Shane!

FTR Teaser #5: MASS

Make room for our third staff creation in FTR set 2 – MASS!

Kroll scientists have been trying, and failing, to recreate the success of Thraxx and Zygon for years, but without the lead of the Dark Menace, they just keep punching out duds. Persistent still, they send their best of their worst to FTR in hopes of getting the Dark Menace’s attention and impressing him. MASS is a massive reminder of just how cruel life can be when genetic engineering goes wrong.

Mass is massive and powerful, but he’s mostly just a big, slow, clumsy, deformed mass of muscles. Where many FTR fighters have promising futures, Mass is terrible now and will probably only get worse. Sometimes the most entertaining thing about Mass are the Kroll scientists who frantically dart around ringside as they study the failings of their genetic creation.

FTR Set 2 is available to preorder by clicking HERE.  You can also order the complete 2017 Holiday Package including Ring of Honor Top Prospects, Legends: Expansion Pack I, and 2 Legends SE cards by clicking HERE.  Games will begin mailing on December 14th.

FTR Teaser #4: MURTAK THE MERCILESS

Bow down, fools! Here comes a new character created by Tom – and your new leader and master – MURTAK THE MERCILESS! MURTAK is a self-proclaimed “galactic conqueror” from the planet Dreeze, a planet no one has ever heard of, and people question if it even exists. Unfazed by his doubters, Murtak has put the galaxy on notice. He is here to take over FTR, and then the GWF. “The puny humanoids who mock me now will make fine slaves later when I’ve conquered their pitiful planets. Nobody mocks Murtak!”

Get MURTAK, Mayham, Vacant, Captain Crossbones and four more cool new FTR wrestlers by ordering now!  FTR Set 2 is available to preorder by clicking HERE.  You can also order the complete 2017 Holiday Package including Ring of Honor Top Prospects, Legends: Expansion Pack I, and 2 Legends SE cards by clicking HERE.  Games will begin mailing on December 14th.

FTR Teaser #3: Captain Crossbones!

If you thought the FTR was lacking in undead pirates, fear no more! CAPTAIN CROSSBONES arrives from Pirate World on Brymstone, ready to strike fear into the hearts of his opponents! No one really knows if Captain Crossbones is truly undead or just an alien, but everyone agrees that he’s scary!
Captain Crossbones has a cult fan following thanks to his colorful look and personality. He is the ultimate loner in FTR, welcoming battles with both heroes and villains alike. His signature catch phrase is popular with his fans on Brymstone: “When you see the BLACK SAILS, then end is near!”
Captain Crossbones is created by FTR Madness winner Richie Newman. Scary good creation, Richie! Check back soon for another new promoter created FTR character!
Preorder for FTR, along with the latest Legends of Wrestling and Ring of Honor sets is this Friday November 24th!  Shipping starts December 12th!

FTR Teaser #2: VACANT

Last week we met MAYHAM, the first of four promoter creations, brought to life by FTR Madness winner Broc Atkinson. This week we’re introduced to the first of four Filsinger Games staff creations – VACANT!

Vacant is rumored to be one of Cannibal’s many illegitimate children growing up and running wild in the dark jungles of Neptune. He is a savage fighter, raised among beasts, untamed and void of normal human behavior. Named for his primitive nature and wild eyed thousand yard stare, Vacant is a fearless hardcore rookie!
But the fans aren’t sure what to think of the Neptunian newcomer. Is Vacant a heroic Space Cropper? Or is his destiny to follow in the sadistic footsteps of his villainous father?
In the ring, Vacant uses SPINE CRACKER – a familiar finisher used by Renegade at the start of his career.
Check back next week for another incredible promoter creation when the second of four FTR Madness winning characters is revealed!

FTR Teaser #1: MAYHAM

The first FTR teaser of the season is MAYHAM! Mayham is an Animan who also happens to be a cowardly Aethran sympathizer. Mayham believes that the Gladiators of Aethra are going to take over the galaxy and wants to be seen as an ally when they do. Mayham’s main goal in FTR is to be noticed by the Aethran Overmaster and be invited to join the Gladiator team. How could this plan possibly go wrong for Mayham?

Mayham is created by Broc Atkinson, and is the first of four incredible fan created game cards in FTR 2. Great work, Broc! Mayham joins four staff created characters (including one by Tom!) for a total of 8 fun new jobbers for your GWF fed. Check back next week for another teaser!
