Midweek Snippets

4 October 2017 - 11:00am
It’s halfway over. The work week is about half-done for most of us. With any luck, you’re looking forward to a weekend of gaming. I might be doing some of that. But I can guarantee that I’ll be doing some baking. Actually, that’ll start tomorrow. We’re having a chili and dessert cook-off here at the […]

Green Fairy Studios LLC Releases Lygari! Card Game

4 October 2017 - 10:00am
We’ve all told tall tales from our past. It was really a $5 bill and not a $100 you found that one time on the ground. The fish you caught was only 2lbs and not 10lbs. You only defeated 3 frost giants and not 16. You know how it goes. But sometimes you might be […]

4 October 2017 - 8:00am
Ramshackle Games is looking to bring a new set of rules to your tabletops. It’s called Mini Gangs and, as one would expect, it puts you in charge of your own post-apocalyptic gang.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts New Blood Bound Preview

4 October 2017 - 7:00am
When vampire clans fight, things can get really, really messy in a hurry. When the Gargoyle and Phoenix clans clashed, it nearly wrecked them both. This caused the Secret Order to realize that having hidden Inquisitors in the various clans, tasked with keeping their numbers in check, was a good idea. And if the Inquisitors […]

Heavy Metal Thunder Mouse RPG Up On Kickstarter

4 October 2017 - 6:00am
I’m a huge fan of innovation in game worlds. There’s lots of fantasy RPGs, walking-undead board games, and sci-fi skirmish games out there. What you don’t see a lot of are games where you and the other players are mice who form a club and build their own motorcycles. But that’s what you’ll be doing […]

Druid City Games Running Guardian’s Call Kickstarter

3 October 2017 - 3:00pm
Can you lie to your friends with a straight face? Well, “lie” is such a mean word. Can you bluff your friends with a straight face? Personally, I love bluffing games. But then, I could weave all sorts of yarns and probably get someone to believe them. So I’m definitely interested in Guardian’s Call by […]

Motes and Beams Card Game Up On Kickstarter

3 October 2017 - 2:00pm
I’ve been trying to come up with some clever way of introducing this game, but I think that straight-forward is just the best: Motes and Beams is basically Mormon Cards Against Humanity. Though there’s a bit more than that, as they throw in extra cards where you can swap or take cards from opponents, or […]

Fantasy Flight Previews Sleeper Agent Specialization for Star Wars RPG

3 October 2017 - 12:00pm
I wish I could be a sleeper agent. Just nap all day, snuggling up with your teddyrancor, under your X-Wing sheets. *gets handed a note* Oh… that’s not what a sleeper agent does at all. Apparently they’re deep-cover operatives that infiltrate a location and basically live a double-life, waiting for the signal from their command […]

Podcast Roundup

3 October 2017 - 11:00am
The work week is firmly underway. I know I like to have some sounds going on beside the random clacking of keyboard keys and the conversations coming from the other offices. That’s why I keep my regular list of gaming podcasts (as well as several groomed Pandora stations). Seeing as it is Tuesday, that means […]

Tako Games Running Four Kings Drinking Game Kickstarter

3 October 2017 - 10:00am
Gamers love games (seems pretty obvious). Gamers, so I’ve found, by and large, love to drink. As such, you will very often see these two things mixed together and you get drinking games. Four Kings, by Tako Games, is one such drinking game. Players will draw cards from a deck and, generally speaking, drinks will […]

Trench Relaunches on Kickstarter

3 October 2017 - 9:00am
Not to say that I like when I see Kickstarters not do well, by any stretch. But I am heartened when I see a campaign that was struggling look at making a fresh start, reconfigure some, and get back into the swing of things with a new campaign that does just fantastically well. Outer Limit […]

3 October 2017 - 8:01am
It’s good to know what’s going on in the upper echelons of the game companies we love. The people in charge of the companies have a lot of say in what direction that company goes. You want good people with steady heads in charge. And that’s what CMON Limited is getting in promoting Jules Vautour […]

3 October 2017 - 8:00am
The galaxy can be yours… if someone else doesn’t grab it for themselves first. It’s a race to grab the best spots and keep control of them in Warpgate, a new sci-fi board game that’s up on Kickstarter. Take control of a unique alien civilization and head out into the void, conquering in the name […]

3 October 2017 - 7:00am
Well, the world’s come to an end again. Damnit, Todd! I told you to clean up your stuff! Now we’re living in a blasted-out nuclear wasteland! It’s not going to be easy, surviving out here. Good thing there’s the Fallout board game from Fantasy Flight. It’ll help teach us how to live in this environment. […]

This is the last post of the day here on TGN. So, what will you do to fill the void between now and when I schedule up the first one for tomorrow? Well, I might suggest a gaming magazine. In particular, Issue 4 of Irregular Magazine is now available. It’s just full of all sorts […]

Andromeda The Game Up On Kickstarter

2 October 2017 - 1:00pm
Andromeda the Game is actually the name for a whole project worth of products based in the same universe. It’s broken up into various parts, from The Abyss, which is an RPG, to The Void, a board game including minis. There’s also a soundtrack and an app. As I said, it’s a bit of everything. […]
