Confrontation Classic Coming to Kickstarter Next Year

22 December 2017 - 10:00am
I remember when Confrontation first came out. At the time, at my LGS, all we really had were GW games. Then Confrontation and Warmachine showed up at basically the same time and split the community almost down the middle. I tried a little bit of both. However, as time went on, Confrontation ebbed away while […]

On the Shoulders of Heroes Fantasy RPG Setting Up On Kickstarter

22 December 2017 - 9:00am
I know a lot of people love 5th Edition, but my heart will always be with 3.5th Edition. If someone’s down for a game, it’s the system I prefer. And, thankfully, I’m not alone. There’s still new material coming out that’s designed to work within that system. For example, there’s On the Shoulders of Heroes, […]

X-Smash Tree Giveaway Happening Now From iello

22 December 2017 - 8:00am
You’ve probably seen videos of Christmas trees falling over (sometimes with the assistance of family pets) and causing damage. They’re cute and often hilarious. What’s not so funny, though, is when a massive Christmas tree starts stomping around downtown, wrecking entire city blocks at a time. That is, unless, you’re the one controlling said Christmas […]

Pandemic: Rising Tide Now Available

22 December 2017 - 7:00am
The Netherlands are in a unique situation wherein most of the country is beneath sea level. This has been helpful, as the country, when under attack, can open up their system of dams and levees and flood regions. But what happens when those systems start failing and there’s no approaching army to defend from? It’s […]

21 December 2017 - 7:00am
As I mentioned in the other Legion preview post, the Battle of Hoth is my favorite part in any Star Wars movie. And, honestly, my favorite character in the movies is General Veers. He’s the one truly competent Imperial officer you see, and he’s obviously sure of his abilities. And soon, you’ll be able to […]

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Snowtroopers Unit Expansion Pack for Star Wars: Legion

20 December 2017 - 12:00pm
My favorite part in any Star Wars movie is the assault on Hoth. That cold-weather attack finally showed what the movies had been telling us: that the Imperial Army was a major fighting force to be reckoned with and feared. All we’d seen up to that point was the taking of the Tantiv IV. So […]
