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.
It's that time of year again, when the Cubicle 7 team pack up our satchels and head off to Indianapolis for Gen Con!
You can find us at booth 337 in the exhibit hall. We'll have some exciting guests and a bunch of new games at the show, all of which are detailed under the cut!
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.
Cubicle 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!
We're at UK Games Expo this weekend in Birmingham, UK. Dom, Andrew and Nick are staffing the stall, and we hope to see you there! We have an advanced copy of Cthulhu Britannica London Boxed Set to look through, the very first set of dice from the upcoming Dalek Dice that you can roll, lots of info about the Lone Wolf Adventure Game as well as our special guest Joe Dever himself! Plus all your favourite Cubicle 7 games to buy. Swing by our stand and say hello!
Welcome back! We’ve all been away over Easter taking a well-earned break, but are back at our respective desks and raring to go!
We’ve got all sorts of news and new products for you over the coming weeks, from Keltia and The SOE Handbook for World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, to covers for forthcoming One Ring supplements, our next Kickstarter and more besides – as always, keep an eye on the website! The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook is also in US stores this week, and we’ll be taking another look at that tomorrow.
But, today we thought we’d take a quick look back at some of our recent news and new releases, to bring you all up to speed.
The GAMA trade show is an annual get-together for games manufacturers, distributors and retailers. It all happens in Las Vegas, and just as in previous years Cubicle 7 was in attendance - this year, however, we were co-sponsors for the first time!
Being based in the UK Las Vegas is a long way for us to travel but we find GAMA to be well worth the trip. It's a chance for us to meet face to face with our fellow publishers, distributors and retailers.
Our busy production schedule, and the way the hobby games industry is set up, means we don't always get a chance to communicate as much as we would like with our partners and contemporaries. The GAMA trade show offers precisely that chance, in a dedicated space.
It's not an event we've spoken much about before here on the Cubicle 7 website, but this year we decided to change that with our report about what we got up to at this year's GAMA trade show. What happened in Vegas isn't staying in Vegas!
