Goodman Games World Tour 2016

Allow us to re-introduce ourselves: World Tour 2016!

Once again Dungeon Crawl Classics calls to the faithful to once again bring 1974 gaming to the masses! Join the Road Crew and help us spread the good news: gaming is awesome again!

Will you join us as in our quest to own the roads and dominate the landscape? Organize, advertize, and judge a game of Dungeon Crawl Classics this year at a public venue. Run your game at a convention, game day event, FLGS event, local watering hole, or school gaming club. Join our Road Crew!

And what’s in it for you, besides your opportunity to ride with us forever through a thousand insane worlds? Swag! That’s right -- the more games you run, the more neat stuff we send your way. Plus of course your name joins the other Immortals in the Road Crew.

New for 2016: Run any game to earn swag! You can now road crew ANY game from the Goodman Games lines. You can run Maximum Xcrawl or Metamorphosis Alpha and earn your way to some great swag. We will have new give-aways for Metamorphosis Alpha and Maximum Xcrawl coming soon – watch this space!

New for 2016: New swag as the year goes on! This year’s give-aways will EVOLVE as we add new stuff during the year. Check this page for updates! 

Tell Me About The Swag!

Updated as of May 23, 2016
The World Tour now includes swag for the Judges Guild! Just tell us if you’re running a Judges Guild module, or a DCC adaptation of a Judges Guild module, and we’ll include some Judges Guild buttons (see “special swag” below).

Breaking news as of March 14: The World Tour now includes swag for Xcrawl! If you’re running an Xcrawl game, make sure to tell us! You’ll see below that there is now an Xcrawl bookmark as part of the game 1 swag, and an Xcrawl die as part of the game 13 swag! And we might even sneak that Xcrawl die in earlier if we know you’re running Xcrawl!”

Here are the swag tiers as they stand now!

Game 1: Get a yellow notepad of 4-up 0-level character sheets, plus an assortment of bookmarks and a spiral notepad for the judge!

Game 3: Get an assortment of “I Survived” and “I Died” buttons for your players, plus a cloisonné pin for the judge!

Game 5: Get a stack of character sheet pocket folders! Perfect for holding your character sheet, maps, and other campaign notes. 

Game 7: Get a stack of mechanical pencils for the players!

Game 9: A special pen just for the judge.

Game 11: Dice bags for all the players!

Game 13: Dice for the players…and a real leather dice bag for the judge!

Game 15: The most-coveted metal belt buckle! This year in nickel finish with the ram-horn devil skull.

Special Swag – Convention Games: If you’re running a game, make sure tell us so we can send you the special convention swag – badge ribbons for all occasions!

Special Swag – Judges Guild: Let us know if you’re running a Judges Guild module, or a DCC adaptation of a Judges Guild module, and we’ll include some of these buttons!

Special Swag – 2015 Consolation Prize: Did you run a lot of games in 2015, and didn’t get any swag? That’s because we ran out. Our bad! We’ve produced a very special DCC beer stein as a “thank-you” for 2015 participants. Contact us if you deserve one!

Special Swag – The T-Shirt: In years past we used a T-shirt as one of the swag tiers, but we’ve discovered that many players would prefer to be able to buy one. That lets you show participation early (rather than waiting until you earn the shirt) and also lets both players and judges participate. Therefore we are now offering the T-shirts for sale for $25. 






Let’s Make it Happen!

How to join: Email us and tell us about the games you have coming up. As a bonus, tell us what song is playing in your head when a zero-level character dies. We’ll connect you with the correct forms and get you on your way to being a swag-having, death-dealing, zero-remorse member of the Road Crew! We will send you some great stuff to share with your players to promote Goodman Games. And remember – the more games you play, the more great stuff you get for yourself! 

Don’t know what to run? There are three free 0-level tournament style modules available for Road Crew members to download!

  •  The Hypercube of Myt: The keep of the legendary wizard Mytus the Mad was razed, looted, and ransacked generations before your oldest ancestor was born. The only reason the chaotic sorcerer’s name is still whispered millennia after his death is because of what lies half-buried amid the scattered flagstones of his long-vanished keep: The Hypercube of Myt.
  • Death By Nexus: Who says you have to be name level to visit another plane? Teams of level-0 PCs will be recruited (kidnapped) by extra-planar forces (Elder Prime Ones) and pitted against each other in a contest (death match) to see which alignment prevails: Law, Chaos, or Neutrality.
  • The Shambling Un-dead: Peasants are trapped within their village during an un-dead apocalypse that lasts from sunrise to sunrise. Since escape is impossible, survival by any means necessary is the name of the game!

How to report your road crew games: Give us the dirt!

  • Once you contact us, we’ll provide a standardized form to use for submitting your events. When contacting us, please include a history of the games you have run for the year ongoing within your message, along with your newly reported game. In the “history,” it need not be in exhaustive detail. Just remind us of game#, location, venue, adventure, and player count. This aids us in properly keeping track of your exploits, and helps us know how much gaming is happening where for future projects.
  • As you run more and more Road Crew games, please please please send us game reports and photos (300 dpi if at all possible so we can print them for publication if possible). WE WANT YOUR STORIES!
“Swag” status: As each of our world tours heats up (does it ever really cool down?? NO!), we want to let our Road Crew judges know that we really appreciate your time and energy that goes into each and every game you run. As part of the rewards system, the swag we send out becomes in higher and higher demand as the game grows. In some periods, we run out of stock of certain components of some tiers. If this occurs, we will hold your shipment of swag until the whole tier is available to ship. We will diligently keep your exploits on file, and send out your goods as soon as they are humanly (or otherwise) available.

International fans: You can also participate in the road crew! We still offer swag for free. To mitigate overseas shipping costs, we must charge you actual cost for international postage. The international swag pack includes a variety of swag which is roughly equal to 3x the 1-game set (as described above), plus some other items, with some minor changes to reduce postage costs. Postage cost is $13.75 Canada, $18.15 Mexico, and $20.45 rest of world. If you would like to order international swag, use the buttons below!

$18.15 Mexico
