This year is big for Avocado Games at Saikoucon! We are readying Bags of Heroes and Patrol Packs for sale. Bags of Heroes will be $10 as a show special, and the Patrol Pouch will be $1. Party Heroes is a great focus this year, building off our wonderful success last year. The Ultimate Final Showdown takes place at the closing ceremony!
So get yourself together, grab a cosplay costume and join us for a weekend of fun!
Don't forget to look for the AG logo at our supporting venders to further the cause!
This article lists some of the top benefits of card gaming for adults. We believe that people need to know these things.
We have all been playing role-playing games for many years. Have you ever thought about playing with your kids? How about the children in your family? Playing with new players always brings a fresh view on how to play; playing with a child, whose imagination is wild and free, may lend you a completely different take on gaming. We are not the only ones thinking this way.
Here is an article sharing our opinion.
Playing Dungeons and Dragons with your Kids
Wow what a night! We all had a splendid evening among the artists at The Origins Gallery. There was food, song, and of course, Games!
I lost count of how many people turned out for this wonderful event.
Our Party Heroes tournament was well played and well won.
We have to give special thanks to Jodi and Ashley for having us in their wonderful space.
Our artists were out in full force to sign autographs and support the company they've work so hard to help build.
Prints of their work are still available through the Gallery!
We have some pictures of our work hanging here.
A thanks to all those who came out in costume, it was great!
Paul Smeltz (a friend to everyone), of The Forwardian Society, gave us a wonderful review of the event here.
So hop on over to our friends page and check out all these people and more!
And a wonderful thanks to all those who chose to support our GoFundMe page!
March 12th we will be hosting an event in conjunction with their Comic and Anime art exhibition. We will be there featuring the work of the Avocadian Artists and celebrating our achievements and community connections with a Party Heroes Tournament.
While enjoying the art, sit down for an Avocado Game at our demo table. Don't forget that many art pieces are for sale as originals or prints through the art gallery. Avocado Games will be donating a portion of our proceeds to benefit the St'art Stroudsburg program and The Origins Gallery.
Festivities begin at 6pm, so show up and celebrate with us!
We have discovered Tabletopia! Tabletopia is a digital tabletop gaming site where you can go and play your favorite games with your friends or strangers. We are actively setting up our games (like BEES and Frontline among others) on this platform so you can play! Once Tabletopia is fully operational, we will set much of our line to be played by anyone! This will allow all of you to try the games we've been working so hard to produce.
What we like so much about this platform is that you will still have to know how to play the game in order to use the interface. So, at the digital table, we'll make the rules available, but the manipulation of all the pieces is up to you. It'll be the same as if you had just opened the box and someone went through the trouble of setting the pieces out on your table!

Scientists are discovering all the time that games are educational. Generally speaking, games activate the prefrontal cortex and speed up the brain's processes. Besides, we all want to spend time playing games with our kids. Now, we can justify it! Here's an article that talks about this.
Get ready! After months and months of work and countless hours of testing and rethinking and rewriting, we finally have a game to be proud of! Watch carefully, because B.E.E.S. goes up on kickstarter October 1st! Come support the Avocado Games family and get a copy as early as possible. We have a ton of rewards planned for our supporters, so jump in as soon as you can. We'll be putting links up on both our website and our facebook, so it'll be easy to get in quick.
Our Thanks to all of our Avocadians!
We had over 3,000 copies of Party Heroes with us and we walked home with our memories and pictures taken at the convention. Two men and two women won our Party Heroes competitions and took home some great prizes. You can still download color copies of Party Heroes so you can play at home with friends, even if you couldn't join us at SaikouCon. Finally our thanks to our new friends from the convention who helped us in the game room and spread the word around the dealer room, artists alley, and the panels. Our thanks to SaikouCon and The Gamer's Edge for hosting and welcoming us into the SaikouCon family.
We will be giving out free printed copies of Party Heroes!
Party Heroes is a wonderful party game where you get to face friends and strangers in a no-holds-barred fight. At SaikouCon we'll be hosting a convention-long Party Heroes Party to find out who will be victorious! We're happy to be welcomed by SaikouCon and The Gamer's Edge and look forward to a lot more gaming! Download a free printable copy of Party Heroes here.
