Broken Token at Gen Con

Broken Token at Gen Con

Exciting news from The Broken Token! If you love Sagrada as much as they do, you’ll love this officially-licensed organizer, available first at Gen Con 2019. They worked closely with Floodgate Games to ensure that the base game and current expansion fits neatly, and leaving room for future expansions as well. Sleeved cards will fit nicely in the organizer, and as an added bonus, a fancy Sagrada-themed dice tower and dice try are included!

The Sagrada Organizer will be available in limited numbers at Gen Con, then available soon after in the online store. Come by early for the best chance to purchase your copy at the con!

Several more crates and organizers will be making their first Gen Con appearance this year, as well as the new lines of Sci-Fi Tabletop Terrain, 3D Printed terrain, and even more ways to customize your hobby painting station. Stop by to see these new products in person! While pictures and videos are great,  seeing them in person really helps to show how much a good organizer can improve your game nights. 

Don’t forget — Booth 2845 will again be Broken Token's home at Gen Con 2019, and this year they're bigger than ever! Stop by to play with the dice tower wall, check out what’s new, and get your favorite games upgraded and organized. You’ll also find their painting accessories in the Miniature Hobby Events area.

Every year they’re happy to chat with fans and give away free copies of the magazine. This year, Gen Con attendees can look forward to some pretty exciting content: in this issue, WizKids challenges players to survive and thrive in a waterworld of their own making. In Flotilla, players compete to salvage equipment, gather supplies, and earn influence in order to lead civilization to a brighter future.
