Puzzle Strike Sale

In celebration of Puzzle Strike's 1.75th year anniversary, the base game + Upgrade Pack together are only $50 (wowow) for the next couple weeks, or while supplies last. If you've been waiting on trying out the game, here's your chance to get those playmats, screens with amusing 8-bit art, and extra puzzle chips, and rebalanced characters for FREE. And yes they fit in the box, by the way.

Also if any of you are going to PAX East in a couple weeks, note that there's an official Puzzle Strike tournament at noon on Friday, April 6th, as well as copies available to play on your own from the game library, and demos of the game at the Game Salute booth. There's an official Yomi tournament too at PAX East, at 5:30pm the same day.

If you'd like to volunteer to help out at PAX East or any other events, you can do so by signing up here. Game Salute gives you free stuff for helping out too. Thanks in advance for the help, and to the entire Puzzle Strike player community!

I helped out some people recreationally playing Yomi at Pax Prime last year, unfortunately while I was heading out of the show but it was still really cool being able to help people understand the game. I wish I could help at PAX east. But I think I'm going to go get me that Puzzle Strike in the mean time. I want to crash those 4 gems on my buddies!

You mentioned in another post in the comments that you're working on another Puzzle Strike game ( Is that going to be compatible with what's for sale now? Is the plan to release a full 20 character set in the next edition or just the additional 10 characters? I just want to make sure that if I buy this I'm not stuck in a position where I need to repurchase a significant portion of the game.

On a side note, I'll probably volunteer on Saturday at PAX EAST to demo some of your games :-).

I'd love to introduce my friends to Yomi at Pax East. Do you need to own your own cards to enter the tournament?

Rob, you don't need to own cards for PAX East tournament. You can use your own decks if you want, but there will also be decks available there to borrow.

The next puzzle strike game is an expansion to the first, Puzzle Strike Shadows.

It has zero overlapping content.

I just traded for a copy of the base game and I'm psyched that it's en route, but at this price I might just need to jump in for a second copy. Need some time to mull...

When do you expect to end the sale? Should I take "for the next couple weeks" literally?

See the rest of you at PAX E. :D

Probably a couple weeks yeah. See you at PAX East.

You'll be there? Rad.
I just heard back from the Game Salute folks -- looks like I'll do some demoing for you.
Will you be around during the tourneys?

April 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSeth

Yep I'll be around.
