Win Exclusive Pins, Valuable Coins & Unique Experiences through the SDCC 2018 Scavenger Hunt
San Diego Comic Con is a paradise for pop culture fans… and Court of the Dead fans – known as “mourners” – are no exception!
There will be a cornucopia of dark delights awaiting mourners at SDCC 2018. Win exclusive pins, valuable coins and unique experiences through the Journey through Illverness scavenger hunt! Meet the makers behind the Court of the Dead in person, and get your collectibles signed!
And, of course, if you can’t join us in person, tune in to Court of the Dead social media to follow our adventures as they are happening… and secure your chance to claim some of the amazing exclusive loot that we crafted for this incredible show!
For fans familiar with the Court of the Dead, the SDCC exclusive enamel pin is perhaps the most iconic take-away item from the show. The pin always features the skull at the heart of the Court of the Dead logo – with a twist. From liberty spikes for NYCC to pumpkin coloring for Spooktacular, there have been 11 pins released to date, and the SDCC 2018 will be the twelfth in this collection, featuring none other than the Valkyrie of the Dead herself, Kier!
To claim this glorious pin, you must embark on a Journey Through Illverness. Get started at the Court of the Dead display at Sideshow booth #1929 to collect your quest card in person, or download and print the quest cards below:
Brave the crowded show floor and travel to each location listed on the card. Collect Kier stamps at each stop as proof of your visit. Once you complete your Journey Through Illverness, return to Court of the Dead booth #1929 to claim your exclusive SDCC 2018 Kier pin!
But the journey does not end there! You will be given a second quest card – containing a secret hashtag – along with your SDCC 2018 Kier pin. Upload a photo to social media with the secret hashtag and you will enter for a chance to win the grand prize: The Mourners Call Tabletop Game Experience!
What is the Mourners Call Tabletop Game Experience, you ask? Three lucky SDCC attendees will get the chance to play the Court of the Dead: Mourners Call board game with Court of the Dead creator Tom Gilliland and game designer Pat Marino. Winners will also be treated to dinner and drinks with Tom, Pat and select members of the Court of the Dead and Project Raygun teams that developed Mourners Call.
The grand prize winners will be selected on Saturday, July 21st, at 6:30 PM PDT at the Court of the Dead display at Booth #1929. Claim a special participation prize just for showing up for the drawing. Winners must be present to win. The Mourners Call Tabletop Game Experience will take place in downtown San Diego, immediately following the drawing.
The Kickstarter-funded Mourners Call game won’t be shipping until December 2018, but our grand prize winners will not be going home empty-handed (no matter how they fare against Tom and Pat on the game board!). Among other items, the grand prize packages that our winners will take home will include a valuable bronze collectible Kier coin created by 1,000 Arts and designed by world-famous artist and coin designer Xihua Zhu. These coins are extremely limited, and made of genuine precious metal. Check out a sneak peek of the coin, and another example of Xihua’s amazing artistry, below:
For those unable to attend San Diego Comic-Con and Journey Through Illverness this year, don’t despair! We will be broadcasting from the show floor regularly, to bring you closer to the necromagic and give you a chance to win the exclusive and elusive Kier pin, too!
Not all our LiveStreams will be announced, but here a few that we have scheduled to give you a headstart on your quest… And for those of you who can make the show, here are your opportunities to meet the man who created the Court of the Dead: Sideshow Chief Creative Officer Tom Gilliland.
