GenCon 2014, Child's Play and more!
Last weekend we got a lot of information regarding Hex, including some tidbits about some upcoming Promos.

First off the Friday Update talked about the upcoming GenCon. Visitors will be able to either play in the Hex League, just like last year, or participate in one of the local 8-man drafts. The later one has already been sold out, but they might fire some more. Prizes include a mercenary, an alternative art promo and an exclusive sleeve for the event. Check out the GenCon category for more info on all promos of this year's GenCon.

Next up Cory posted a blog last thursday, where he announced that they plan to sell a poster for each set, starting with the current Set 1. The poster comes with in-game sleeve, which you can check out in our newly added merchandise category. Note that the poster was only printed 300 times and only half of those will be sold through their website. Cory noted that he does not expect them to sell out, but if they do, they might print more. If you ask me, because of the in-game sleeve, they might go faster than anticipated, so make sure you keep an eye on their website.

Finally, community members Infam0usne0 and Cirouss held a 48 hours streaming marathon for charity last weekend. During the event they had many guests and managed to raise an incredible $13,000 for Child's Play. As a reward, Cryptozoic decided to give everyone who donated custom sleeves. Because they had no time to prepare those sleeves and they don't want any third party logo's in their client, it was decided that it had to be art currently in the client. The sleeve will most likely be handed out with a code, so if you donated, make sure you keep an eye out in your mailbox.

During the stream, Cory also joined to answer a lot of questions, one of them being about the Collector's exclusive alternate art card. It was confirmed that the art is already done, but they have to figure out a good way to distribute them to the right people. Unfortunately this needs some development and was not high on their priority list.

That's it! Quite a lot of new info. If you're going to GenCon, happy hunting on those promos! If not, remember all promos (except sleeves) will be available in-game at some point as well.

Posters und custom sleeves heh?
That's just great! Thanks a lot for sharing.

Well, it's rumored that you won't be able to get those prints outside the US? Even if you would be willing to pay freight charges?

Does anybody know if there will be a stream of the HEX-GenCon Part somewhere?
