    You get a Con on the Cob 2019 Annual Yearbook! How cool is that? Very cool, is the answer. Since the yearbook will be made from images taken at the Con, you can either have it mailed to you for an extra five bucks (domestically) or pick it up at Oddmall Outpost (www.oddmalloutpost.com). We'll provide you with an autograph sheet so you can get signatures at the con. Alternately, add $30 to any other pledge to nab yourself a CotC 2019 Annual Yearbook should you so desire.

    Play Hidden Worlds: Incursion with the game's creator Bryan Donihue and nab yourself a signed and personalized copy of the game! You can also grab this reward by adding $45 to any existing pledge. Hidden Worlds: Incursion is a game set in a world much like our own. Unfortunately, the edges of reality sometime blur, and... things... come through. It is a world where faith can do amazing miracles, as if by magic. It is a world where mythological creatures exist at the same time as horror monsters and Lovecraftian elder gods. It is a world where you and your party will play government agents, private investigators, or independent contractors as you search for monsters and other creatures, hunt them down, and keep the world safe. All while trying not to get killed in the process.

    Play Great Space Race with Guest of Honor Jolly Blackburn! WELCOME TO THE GREAT SPACE RACE! A short time ago, in a galaxy not too far away, powerful alien races gave the six most inept species a choice - win or be destroyed. As one of these alien racers, you must use speed, tactics and luck to ensure the survival of your people! Of course, winning the Race is not as simple as it sounds. The greater your speed, the faster you travel, but the more difficult it becomes to avoid hazards such as the black holes, space amoebas and other dangers of space, not to mention that each ship is armed with missiles and other deadly weapons. But don’t worry... at the speed of light, no one can hear you scream. Participants each receive a selection of Knights of the Dinner Table comics and trade paperbacks signed by Jolly Blackburn. You can add $75 to any other pledge level to get in on the exclusive game session and nab the board game.

    Join Harrison Hunt, Gary McCallum, and Eric Lamoureux of The Wild Die Podcast for a rousing game of ToffGuys - new British gangster setting for the Wiseguys (Savage Worlds) game. Participants will receive a signed and personalized Jumpstart copy of ToffGuys (if it's back from the printer by then. If not, they'll nab a copy of Wiseguys instead). Here's the best part, though: The entire game will be livestreamed on The Wild Die Podcast for gazillions of viewers across the globe to marvel at and drool with envy. If you want to be a kebab-van owner who sells knocked-off watches, an enforcer who works for London’s biggest Guv’nor, or a nutter who robs post offices. Then play Toffguys, a new criminal-underworld setting companion for Wiseguys, that sorts the big boys from the namby-pambies. You can also nab this event by adding $75 to any other pledge!
