Greetings WizKids Retailers and Supporters,

The 2014 convention season is finally upon us! Last month players flocked to the UK Games Expo, last week WizKids attended Origins Game Fair, and there are more great events to come such as the Mexico HeroClix Championship, the Spain HeroClix Championship, the Canada HeroClix Championship,  Gen Con Indy and more!

As many of our fans know, conventions are a great opportunity to play for awesome prizes and purchase exclusive products, and WizKids is pleased to announce an all-new program designed to capture some of that convention lightning in a bottle for friendly local game and comic stores with the 2014 Con In Your Store program!

What is Con In Your Store? 

As its name implies, Con In Your Store brings the convention experience (except the long lines perhaps ; ) to participating friendly local game and comic shops by offering both desirable participation and competitive prizes as well as for-sale exclusives.  There are three levels by which stores can participate in the Con In Your Store program, each with more content than the last, allowing stores to scale the in-store convention experience to the size they want.

This particular  Con In Your Store program is an Alliance Games Distributor-exclusive program wherein stores purchase a quantity of designated product at different tiers and then receive, at no additional cost, their Con In Your Store kit(s), each containing a number of participation and competitive prizes, and for-sale exclusives.  (Interested Diamond Comics Distributors customers can contact Sophia Brisco at 443-318-8507 or email ssophia@diamondcomics.com to learn how to participate. International stores: please stay tuned for more announcements to come.)

How does my store participate in Con In Your Store?
 

Stores must be registered in the WizKids Event System (WES) to participate in the Con In Your Store program.  We’ve uploaded special event templates for both HeroClix and Star Trek Attack Wing specifically for this program, each with a “CIYS” prefix to designate them as part of the Con In Your Store program.

The Con In Your Store kits will arrive in stores on July 30th, 2014.  Stores can schedule their CIYS events in the WES now, and run them anytime between August 1st and August 30th, 2014.  Scheduled CIYS events will show up in a special Con In Your Store search function within the WES, so players will be able to find participating stores based upon proximity to their location! BE SURE TO SCHEDULE YOUR EVENTS! Otherwise, your store may not show up when players look for a participating store.  (click on image below to enlarge)
