VIdeo Vortex from Mondo Games

Video Vortex

Y2K came down on humanity. Hard.

Nearly 300 years later, the descendants of the survivors live in stark contrast to their ancestors. Victims of a devastating loss of historical record, they fervently subscribe to the only cultural archive that remains: the miraculously preserved ruins of a Video Rental Store in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Video Vortex is a competitive deck-building game set in a radioactive future Earth inhabited by video-obsessed mutants. Players must strategically employ their unique powers while battling opponents and navigating game effects in an attempt to have their chosen genre lead the way to the future.

Releasing late 2019 from Mondo Games — first look available at Gen Con in booth 3061!

Burger Study Brings the Strangest Thing to Gen Con

Burger Study

We are extremely excited to announce our partnership with Burger Study as the Official Burger of Gen Con!

The official burger, created specifically for Gen Con, is the Strangest Thing burger: two thinly pressed USDA Prime beef patties topped with American cheese, peanut butter, and local blueberry jam, sandwiched between two Eggo waffles.

New this year: they will have a tent on Georgia Street! They will be serving the Strangest Thing burger along with a traditional burger and the World Famous St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail at their food tent on Georgia St. (on the Northwest quad by the convention center). Want to sit down and eat? Head over to the restaurant, also located on Georgia St., with an entrance inside Circle Centre Mall.

Reminder: Burger Study’s companion restaurant St. Elmo Steak House is offering grab-and-go, pre-order only sack lunches for the first day of Gen Con on Thursday, August 1! Get two filet sliders, chips, and a brownie for $15.

Pre-order today and pick up at St. Elmo on July 1 between 11 am – 2 pm.
