Next week is the 50th Anniversary Gen Con!

We’re at booth 933, so swing by, meet the team, play a demo, and catch up on the latest releases for all your favourite C7 titles. Just look for the Tower!
We have various demo games running throughout the 4 days, and we’ll be bringing you more info on those in our next update. Our events book up fast, but it’s always worth showing up with a generic ticket just in case someone drops out.

See you there?

We’re going to UK Games Expo this weekend!

Swing by our booth and check out a host of new releases, grab Adventures in Middle-earth Players and Loremaster’s Guides, ask us questions we may or may not answer about our new announcements: Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and Age of Sigmar Roleplaying Game, and pick up the latest releases from all your favourites! We’re also running some special offers exclusive to the show, so be sure to drop by.

You’ll be able to enjoy some exclusive first looks at the prototypes of our newest card games:

• The first expansion for Doctor Who Time Clash: Against The Cybermen.
Against the Cybermen introduces new Hybrid cards, a ton of new arcs and a relentless, indefatigable enemy. Plus the Eleventh Doctor deck! Doctor Who Time Clash Starter Set will be available to demo and buy! It’s a brilliant game from superstar designer Jeff Tidball that changes every time you play.

Giftmas at Dungeon Abbey
We wish it could be Giftmas every day, and now it can be with the hellish inhabitants of Dungeon Abbey. Will you get the gifts you want? Or will it be bombs for Giftmas again? Dungeon Abbey is a fast and furious game by Rob Harper.

Dungeon Abbey: The Shooting Party
Pull! It’s time to open the dungeon doors and blast whatever comes out. I bet I can bag more than you! Balderdash! Look out! A giant acidic jelly cube! Both barrels! The Shooting Party is a game for 1 to 4 villainous toffs by Rob Harper.

Cthulhu Tales
We have the very first copy of this horrifying but oh so entertaining story-telling game from the twisted minds of Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi.

See you there!

Will you be attending one of the two largest American roleplaying game conventions this year? Do you enjoy playing Cubicle 7 games and relish the opportunity to run them? Do you like free stuff?

Well, you’re in luck! Cubicle 7 needs Gamemasters to help us run events at Origins Game Fair (June 15-19) and Gen Con (August 4-7) this year! Each session will run for 3-4 hours and will be fully supported by Origins and Gen Con.

We’re looking for GMs to run 3-6 events at either (or both!) cons, and we're offering the following rewards to everyone who helps:

1 event = A pdf of the rulebook and any supplementary material needed to run the adventure.

3 events = GM badge

4 events = $30 Cubicle 7 store credit

5 events = Free Cubicle 7 PDF of your choice

6 events = $30 Cubicle 7 store credit

These rewards are cumulative, so if you run 6 events you get PDF(s) you need to run the adventure (or multiple ones, if you’re running more than one game), the GM badge, a free Cubicle 7 PDF of your choice, and $60 in Cubicle 7 store credit! Store credit may be cashed in at the convention or at a later time.

We plan on supporting all of our major lines, but please note that we cannot guarantee that you’ll get to run a particular system, although please let us know your preferences. Each event is fully supported and designed with the beginner in mind, so even if you are unfamiliar with a particular system, rest assured that we’ll provide you with the tools you’ll need to run a fantastic game!

If you are interested in joining us, please let us know by emailing our event coordinator, Walt Ciechanowski at waltscie AT yahoo DOT com (please put ‘Event GM 2016’ as the subject so we don't miss your email).

We're back at work after a hugely successful trip to the Spiel games fair in Essen, Germany. Here's a quick run down on what happened at the show - the first time we've had a stand there since 2011.

As well as new releases previously only seen at Gen Con, we also had some exclusive preview copies of forthcoming books and games, as well as some top secret prototypes too.

We're setting back into work after another hugely successful Gen Con! Here's a quick run down on what happened at the show.

We had several new releases at Gen Con, but something we've made a point of mentioning for the last couple of years is that we make and release great games all year round not just at Gen Con.

Debuting at the show this year were Keltia, SOE Handbook, The Cthulhu Britannica London Boxed Set, Ruins of the North and The Ninth Doctor Sourcebook and some specially flown in copies of The Lone Wolf Adventure Game.

At Gen Con, we pride ourselves on providing a packed schedule of events, bringing you a showcase of the very best of our games, from the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game and The One Ring, to The Lone Wolf Adventure Game and World War Cthulhu. We couldn’t do this without our wonderful team of GMs, and this year is no exception.

We’ve still got a couple of spaces in our line-up this year and need GMs for the following games/slots:

  • World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour – Thursday 8pm

  • The Lone Wolf Adventure Game – Friday 4pm

  • The One Ring – Saturday 8am, Sunday 8am.

If you’re already coming to Gen Con and would like to join the team, we can offer the following:

  • If you run at least three games, you get free entry to Gen Con – if you’ve already bought your badge, contact us and we can help you get a refund.
  • If you qualify for a free badge, we’ll also send you a free PDF of your choice from our store.
  • $10 credit at our stall or webstore for every game you run.
  • A PDF version of the game you’re running for us.
  • A new, pre-written scenario for your game.
  • Our undying gratitude and the adoration of the gaming public!

Last weekend the Cubicle 7 team were at the Origins Game Fair. We were one of the sponsors of the show this year, which was super exciting for us – Origins is one of our favourite conventions and it was thrilling to keep seeing our posters and banners around the venue.

We had a great show, so asked asked some of the team to write about their Origins experience.

Origins Awards 2015Cubicle 7 are at Origins right now! We’re one of the sponsors of the show this year. This is super exciting for us – Origins is one of our favourite conventions and it’s thrilling to keep seeing our posters and banners around the venue.

Come and find us at our booth to check out sneak peeks of Dalek Dice, Cthulhu Britannica: London and The Lone Wolf Adventure Game, as well as to snap up hot-off-the-press games including Ruins of the North, and to browse our great selection of card and roleplaying games for The One Ring, Doctor Who, The Laundry, World War Cthulhu and more besides.

Dom McDowall, Ken Spencer, Walt Ciechanowski and newest recruit (but veteran of many, many games conventions) TS Luikart will be at the stall and running games throughout the show, so make sure you pop by to say hi and to find out the latest scoop on all of our games.


We’re also over the moon to have been nominated for two Origins Awards! Both our card game, Hobbit Tales, and The Darkening of Mirkwood campaign for The One Ring are up for Best RPG Supplement. Our first card game, Doctor Who: The Card Game, won an Origins Award when it was first released, so let’s see if we can scoop a second one with our second card game; and Shadows over Scotland won an Origins Award for Best RPG Supplement, so let's see if we can add another trophy from that category to our cabinet!

If you’re at Origins, make sure you go and vote for us! And if you’re not, wish us luck all the same and check out the nominated games here and here.
