Z-Man Games Posts New Pandemic Legacy Season 2 Preview

29 September 2017 - 10:00am
The thing that sets Legacy-style games apart from others is that the game will literally change each time you play. What you do in one session will have an effect on the next. Card packs will be opened. Other cards will be removed. The game board will be altered. People went crazy over this aspect […]

Trials of Frostgate Scenario Available For Descent

29 September 2017 - 8:00am
One thing about making a game have a digital app component is that a company can release a new scenario and simply make it available for purchase through the app. You can then buy it and play it basically instantly. Such is the case with Trials of Frostgate. It’s a new scenario for Descent that’s […]

New Transports Available to Order From Forge World

29 September 2017 - 7:00am
I tend to repeat myself around here. It’s just in my nature, really (you should hear my dad tell the same story a dozen times). Two things I’ve often said is that walking to battle is for suckers. Also, the Legio Custodes have some of the best janitorial equipment I’ve ever seen. This post combines […]

Steamforged Previews Alloy For Guild Ball

29 September 2017 - 6:00am
You might think that a team like the Blacksmith’s Guild would have all the subtlety of… well… a gigantic hammer smashing into a near-molten-hot piece of metal. “Ninja” might be the last thing on your mind. However, the Blacksmith’s Guild knows that just running headlong into the enemy at full speed might not always be […]

Corvus Belli Previews The Dice From Aristeia

28 September 2017 - 2:00pm
I think it’s safe to say that most miniatures games out there use dice of some kind. Sure, there are those that go for some other method, but the fairly tried-and-true method of randomization comes from little plastic polyhedrons bouncing across the table. Aristeia is no different. But Corvus Belli has decided not to use […]

28 September 2017 - 12:00pm
Starfinder lets you take a rules set you know (Pathfinder, in case you somehow didn’t know) and head out into the stars. Well, while there may be literally thousands of minis out there for your fantasy RPG games, the market is decidedly smaller for sci-fi games. Paizo and Ninja Division are looking to fix that […]

Plastic King Tiger Kit Available To Pre-Order From Warlord Games

28 September 2017 - 9:00am
When we look back on history, it’s only natural to come up with “what if?” scenarios. How would things have changed if certain factors had been altered. One that plays on many WWII historians minds is “what if the Germans had put the King Tiger tank into action earlier or in greater numbers?” The few […]

ELO Darkness Relaunches on Kickstarter

28 September 2017 - 8:00am
Kickstarters don’t always succeed the first time around. This can be due to an almost unlimited number of factors. But if that happens, creators shouldn’t be disheartened. I’ve seen quite a few campaigns reconfigure, regroup, and relaunch with a campaign that blows away their initial expectations. It’s looking like that’ll be the case for ELO […]
