Games and Events at DiceFest
There are many games and events at DiceFest. Some are "FreePlay", meaning that you can show up and join the event without signing up (this includes ALL Panels, the Keynote Events, and some Games). Most Games, Contests, and Tournaments, do require signing up in advance. Once you receive your badge at the show, you can sign-up for events throughout the weekend. We recommend looking at the schedules beforehand to get an idea of what is most interesting to you.
We will have a fully-loaded Flying Frog store at DiceFest, which will feature some surprise brand new items and miniatures, as well as incredible sales and specials!
Our favorite barbecue place, Dickey's BBQ Pit, will be serving food at DiceFest again this year! We could not be more excited about sharing this yummy secret with our DiceFest guests! Dickey's BBQ served sandwiches, meat plates, and sides last year and the crowd really loved it!
For over a decade, Flying Frog has had booths at conventions like Gen Con, PAX, Origins, and more. But, most of the time, we are introducing our games to new players and each demo or game starts at square one - introducing the theme and concepts and teaching the basic rules. DiceFest was conceived as an event for the fans of Flying Frog's games. "It's like, you already play the games, now let's take it to the next level!" Large 3D game tables with beautiful detail, bringing the games to life like never before! Huge event games like 'Trederran Trench War' where up to 16 Brimstone Heroes enter a massive labyrinth of trenches in the war-torn world of Trederra, fighting their way through the defenses, working together to shut down the Doomsday Device, but also competing for the prize stashes along the way!
There are exciting many game events at DiceFest, but there is also so much more to see and do! Throughout the two days, there are panels with topics like "The Future of Brimstone" with game creators Jason and Scott Hill or "Weapons of Brimstone" where actor, historian, and collector, Gordon Frye (who plays Nigel Harrington in Fortune and Glory and posed for the illustration of the Male Rancher in Shadows of Brimstone) shows pieces from his collection and discusses the history of Old West firearms! There are costume contests, painting contents, signings, displays of costumes, props, and original artwork that just won't happen anywhere else! Flying Frog Studio Painter, Aaron Lovejoy holds court in the Painting Area, where gamers can grab a pre-primed Brimstone mini and sit down at the 'Paint n' Take' tables, stocked with paints and brushes, to hone their painting skills and get tips from the master! Throughout the event, Aaron runs several 'Behind the Brush' Panels with topics like "Airbrushing Basics" or "All about that Base - Basing your minis". There is truly something for everyone!
We put together the first DiceFest in 2017 and serious fans traveled from far and wide to take part - it became a bit of a party! People who had seen each others' posts in forums for years were suddenly face-to-face and at times, it was like a reunion. "Our main goal with DiceFest is to entertain every attendee from the moment they arrive, to the moment they leave!" Flying Frog Music Director, Mary Beth Magallanes leads the charge for a concert on DiceFest Saturday night - first performing soundtrack songs and then joining other Flying Frog notables for a rock concert of classic cover songs. "That part is really interactive because we'll pull fans and other Flying Frog folks up on stage for a song!"
DiceFest is two action-packed days of your favorite Flying Frog games, but played with exclusive new scenarios, huge 3D gaming tables, and mega events designed by the creators of the games. The barriers are gone, fans of the game hang out and play games with all of the creative people behind the games and everyone has a blast!
