25 January 2018 - 6:00am
Arguably the most influential member of the Rebel Alliance was Leia Organa. A diplomat, a military commander, a strike team member. She did it all.

Warlord Games Hiring Social & Digital Media Coordinator

24 January 2018 - 3:00pm
With all the releases that Warlord Games has been having lately, there’s a lot of people out there talking about them. But they want that word to spread further.

The Devil’s Level Card Game Up On Kickstarter

24 January 2018 - 2:00pm
As we know from the Bible (as well as many heavy metal songs), the number 666 is associated with forces not so aligned with good things (depending on who you ask/read, it’s the Devil’s number, or the Antichrist’s number, or the Number of the Beast, and so forth and so on). In The Devil’s Level […]

Free John Carter of Mars Quickstart Adventure Available From Modiphius

24 January 2018 - 1:00pm
“Try before you buy.” That’s a motto I follow as much as possible in my life. I simply don’t have the time, money, or space to get every game that is released (and unless you’re Elon Musk or Carrot Top, I doubt you do, either). So that’s why I love when a company puts out […]

Well… my week’s taking a bit of a turn. Woke up this morning with a slight cough. Here’s to hoping that doesn’t turn into anything. Not really interested in being sick. So I’m making sure to keep my fluids up, taking a bit of Dayquil, and need to stay fed with some bite-sized gaming stories. […]

24 January 2018 - 6:00am
I’m not entirely sure how you preview something that’s been out for 30 years, but I guess it is getting a bit of a touch-up, and there’s a huge chance that many of you weren’t even alive when this book was first released. But anyway, Fantasy Flight will be releasing a 30th Anniversary Edition of […]

23 January 2018 - 3:00pm
It’s important to have a game that’s balanced.

Wyrd Releases Alt. Lazarus Mini

23 January 2018 - 10:00am
I love alternate sculpts for minis. Even with some small modding, armies in a minis game can potentially look a bit samey. A great way around that is alternate sculpts for figures. Because unless you’re a pro sculptor, you might do a few cuts here and there, but it’s not anywhere near what a company […]

TGN Review: Super Kitty Bug Slap

23 January 2018 - 9:00am
Those that’ve been long-time readers of TGN know that I have a love of “gaming backpack games.” Those are games that are very small and compact, tend to have few rules and a small footprint on the table, and can be played at almost a moment’s notice. They’re so named because you can toss them […]

While, in the movies, Stormtroopers might just be the faceless cannon fodder that gets fed into the blaster fire of the rebels, they actually were an elite fighting force. Trained in various tactics and equipped well by the Empire, they were something to be feared on the battlefield. Fantasy Flight has posted up a preview […]
