|Pit Fighter: Fantasy Arena (10-01-06)|
|We had a few copies of Pit Fighter: Fantasy Arena at GenCon 2006, while the rest came to us by boat. It had very positive first convention and hit the stores on October 1st. Both www.upallnightgaming.com and www.spewgilist.com gave it enthusiastic reviews as did convention-goers. The game will be supported by a tournament program with promo cards (the only rarity in this customizeable game) every couple of months.|
|Distribution and Fulfillment Changes (Summer 2006)|
|Over the summer of 2006, Cheese Weasel Logistics took over the fulfillment services for our products. Originally mentored under Fantasy Flight Games, and then represented to distributors by Hyperion Games, it was time to have distributor relationships of our own. We are currently distributed by Alliance and ACD and hope to be adding to that list regularly. Any questions about product sales, distribution, SKUs, and availability (especially if you are having any difficulty stocking or finding Cheese Weasel products!) can be sent directly to us (email here).|
|Gencon Meta-Game (7-10-06)|
|Well we are at it again. This year at Gencon 2006 we are organizing and hosting another "This Item Starts a Quest Game". Look for us in a booth in the hallway near the main entrance and pick up your item to start your quest. The winners of the Origins Meta-Game walked off with over $6,500 in gaming goodies. This year it could be you. All you need to do is what you are doing at the convention anyways. Just stop by the booths of the companies listed on the quest starter card and see what they have thats new this year. It's that simple.|
|Death by Dice (7-10-06)|
|We have received about 3000 copies of our new and first game - Death by Dice. It was received well at Origins 2006 where we sold 111 copies. It also garnished a few reviews so look for them on www.upallnightgaming.com. So stop by our booth at Gencon and pick up your copy. They should be into distribution in a few weeks for folks who want to get them at their local stores.|

The Sheweasel and the Chiefweasel were married a few weeks back. We spent our honeymoon in the Galapagos Islands seeing all the wildlife. Next time you see us, stop by and say gratz.
|Pirates Card Coffins|
|The Pirates card Cofffins are now available through our website and retails stores world wide.|
|Gencon was a good convention. A lot came out from the "This item starts a quest game". It was a big success and we will do it again next convention.|
Well GAMA 2005 has ended. The show was very good for us and the Pirates Card Coffin was well received. Our big announcement coming out of GAMA is that the Card Coffin has been nominated for the 2004 Origins Award for Best Game Accessory. The winner will be announced at Origins 2005. Keep your fingers crossed, I know we are.
Arrrgh!! The Weasel has met up with Pirates and found a good mate!
During the 2004 conventions, we discovered that the Card Coffin was an excellent fit for new hit game – Pirates of the Spanish Main. The center compartment will hold a full fleet of assembled ships (or several fleets in their card carriers) and the crew pieces, dice, islands and gold coins fit perfectly in the side and bottom compartments. WizKids noticed this as well and, throughout the fall, worked with us to be their first Pirates licensee!
We commissioned a gorgeous set of Pirate artwork from Kurt Miller for the top and sides of the tin. In addition we are working to have a unique surprise included with purchase! The first Pirate Card Coffin will have a limited run and pre-orders will be available starting in this month. Keep an eye on our site for more information. The product will hit the market in May 2005 and we’ll have stock at both Origins and GenCon, provided we have some left!
To pre-order your very own, just click here. Please note that all tins will be shipped when received. At present our estimated date for delivery is mid May of '05. But don't wait for the last minute to get yours, these are on a first come first serve basis, so don't miss out.
For retailers, pre-orders will also be available starting in March from our website and at the GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas from March 17 - 20.
The Weasel has also partnered again with our friends over at Fantasy Flight Games. They have graciously commissioned a custom Card Coffin for their popular Call of Cthulhu CCG/TCG. This new tin will be available through Fantasy Flight Games starting in May of '05.
