Step 1 - Running a Welcome Event

Welcome Events are a great way to introduce players to Flesh and Blood! Welcome Events are designed to make on-boarding players as time and staff efficient as possible for your store. The suggested teaching approach is learn to play open session.

The Ira, Crimson Haze Welcome deck is designed to teach the basics of FAB play and showing off the games fast, fun and furious gameplay.

  1. “Here's an Ira Welcome Deck. Take a look through it.”
  2. “Watch the Learn to Play video (6 min) on your phone or in-store screen.” (
  3. “Find someone to play against. If you have any questions, ask for help.”

Suggested event structure:

Learn to Play Open Session

  • 60 minutes
  • Each player gets an Ira, Crimson Haze Welcome Deck
  • Players watch the learn to video then play against other new players
  • Free to enter

Welcome Deck Tournament

  • 3-4 rounds
  • Best of 1
  • 30 minutes per round
  • Free to enter
  • Run using GEM

We have used this approach with success in local game stores. Check out a 90 second highlights video of one such event Ira Premiere Event, where over 100 people learnt how to play in 2 hours then played a 7 round tournament!

What you need to do:

  1. Schedule your Welcome Event in easy to use GEM (
  2. Promote your event online using Welcome Event digital assets
  3. Have boosters and Blitz decks available to sell to happy FAB players! Order from your local distributor
