Post subject:  Selling Sword & Shield at Gen Con 2016

Hi everyone,

2 years ago I purchased a sword and shield from Forged Foam at Gen Con. My company, The Game Crafter, exhibits there every year and I was really hoping to get involved in some foam combat! :) However, I live in Kalamazoo, Michigan and there doesn't seem to be much around me. (I tried to connect with the group in Grand Rapids but to no avail) Long story short, I've given up and so I figured I would sell my unused equipment at Gen Con this year. I will be in Indianapolis tomorrow, Aug 3rd thru Sunday, Aug 7th. I would like to sell both items as a set on-site.

Here's the Forged Foam equipment I have to sell:

Full size image here:

Full size image here:

Medium Ultra Light Sword
Blade Length: 26 Inches
Overall Length: 34 Inches
Weight: 9oz
Core: .505" Filament Wound Epoxy Tube (not sure, this is what the website says)
Cover color: Black
Grip Type: Rope
Handle Type: Oblong
Hilt: None
Tip: Regular

Standard Round Shield
Cover Color: Black
Core: Regular
Diameter: 28 inches
Thickness: 2.5 inches
Weight: 6.5 pounds
Core: .5" plywood

The sword costs $48 and the shield is $65 on the Forged Form website. I think I got the shield for $62 and the sword for $45. However, I'm willing to sell them for $80. I could even throw in a little gift certificate at The Game Crafter if you like board games. :) Note: These have never been used in any sort of combat and were just sitting in my closet for the last 2 years. Hopefully you can put these to use and have fun. You can reply to this post and it will notify me or you can reach out to me on twitter at See you at Gen Con!

Hey bud,

I'm from the GR group; if you are still interested in coming out we would love to have you. We are on Facebook under the group "Kingdom of Northlands (Grand Rapids Belegarth/Dagorhir)" The group requires you to 'request' to join, but I will take care of that as soon as you put in the request.

If you have any questions feel free to reply or shoot me a PM. Have fun at GenCon!

Hey SciosEBF,

Thanks for reaching out. I'm glad to hear that there are still active people in GR. I got your message on the way to Gen Con so I ended up holding off on selling it there. Going to give it another shot and reach out to your FB group. Thanks!
