“Come out to the coast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs…” Or you can celebrate the 80s action classic with us in the form of an epic tabletop face-off! 

The OP is returning to “The Home of Tabletop Gaming” this year, and we’re so excited to unveil what surprises await you at Booth 137. Welcome to the party, pals! Here’s what you have to look forward to from The OP at Gen Con 2019 in Indianapolis! 

Gen Con 2019 Events at Booth 137

1. Square Off With Your Friends For Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game

For the first time ever, the 1988 box-office smash has been converted into an unforgettable tabletop experience that you’ll want to play again and again! 

Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Gameis a one-versus-many game of stealth, combat, and action-tactics. You and up to three other players will choose to play the roles of either John McClane or one of the thieves in an attempt to save Nakatomi Plaza or empty its vault. 

Will McClane defeat Hans Gruber and his gang of crooks, or will The Thieves walk away with a hefty paycheck? It’s up to you and how you plot your way through all three acts of this immersive and one-of-a-kind tabletop challenge. 

*Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game will be available for purchase at Gen Con 2019. You may also BUY NOW on Amazon!*

2. Crack the Vault and Take Home a FREE Game

If you’ve cracked the code, you’ll be sitting on a beach, earning twenty percent. 

Gen Con attendees are invited to Booth 137 and attempt to “crack the vault” by spinning our Die Hard-inspired wheel, which will select a small envelope for you. Inside, you’ll find a code to input into the locked safe at our booth, just like the vault from Nakatomi Tower. If your code is the winner, the vault will open and you can “steal” a FREEcopy of Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game. If not, you’ll still be rewarded with a free lapel pin! 

Swing by to try your luck and attempt to take the motherlode from the Nakatomi vault. 

3. Go on the Hunt for John McClane

Hans Gruber has given his orders, and he wants YOU to be the one to track down the cowboy, John McClane. If you succeed, he may consider giving you a cut of the loot! 

Small cards with John McClane (similar to the game’s box top image) will be hidden throughout the Convention Hall during Gen Con. All you have to do is follow three easy steps to be entered for a chance to win Die Hard: The Nakatomi Heist Board Game:

1.    Find John McClane in the Convention Hall. 

2.    Take a photo with McClane in his hiding place

3.    Report to Gruber through Instagram using our secret code: #NakatomiHeist

The winner will be selected at random and announced via Instagram on the last day of Gen Con (Sunday, August 4). If you’re the lucky recipient, expect a notification on your Instagram and a direct message from The OP! We’ll collect your address and send your prize directly to you. Good luck!
