Review Roundup

2 December 2017 - 11:00am
It’s Saturday. Usually, that would mean gaming. But Friday meant gaming for me, as a friend came over after work and we played some Guild Ball, Bunny Kingdom, and Apotheca. Great way to spend a Friday. So, what am I up to Saturday? Well, I’m in the CMON Offices, helping pack orders for the holiday […]

Battlefront Posts a Look Inside the Stripes Book for Team Yankee

1 December 2017 - 3:00pm
WWIII is not currently happening. Let’s do our best to keep it that way, eh? I don’t really want Team Yankee to turn into a modern game, as opposed to just post-modern-sci-fi. So, for the meantime, these are just figurative, uh, figures. And in the Stripes book, Battlefront expands the U.S. options. Take a look […]

Battle of Golems Board Game Up On Indiegogo

1 December 2017 - 1:00pm
The digital world is becoming more and more important in our everyday lives. Hell, I work online. You’re reading this on some electronic device (unless you have someone print out all these articles for you and then hands you the hard copy, which just seems odd…). All of these items run using programs. So having […]

Genesys RPG Now Available

1 December 2017 - 12:00pm
Most RPG systems are very specific to a time or place. Medieval fantasy. Interstellar sci-fi. Pulp-noir Earth. The Genesys system isn’t like that. This new set of rules gives you the ability to play anywhere, anytime, anytheme. It’s now available from Fantasy Flight. From the announcement: Aim a rocket launcher at a group of supernatural […]

Friday Snippets

1 December 2017 - 11:00am
I’ve almost run out of Thanksgiving leftovers. I still have some turkey and some sweet potato casserole, along with just a touch of one pumpkin pie left. BTW: the sweet potatoes still being around are a case of “Save the best for last.” Not to sound haughty, but trying some of it, with a bit […]

Yummy World: Party at Picnic Palace Now Available From WizKids

1 December 2017 - 9:00am
I’m guessing that Picnic Palace is where the people from Who Should We Eat? think they are… or maybe this game is what the players in that game are imagining, when they start chomping into each-other… There’s a thought for you… Anyway, Yummy World: Party at Picnic Palace is a new card game that’s available […]

Red Scorpion Kits Available to Order From Forge World

1 December 2017 - 7:00am
Well, the Scorpions are red (and I don’t mean to say that the classic metal band is communist), so that’s kinda Christmas-y. Anyway, even if it doesn’t really tie in with the holiday season (not like every story this month needs to), if you’re looking for Red Scorpions items for your 40k armies, now’s the […]

30 November 2017 - 3:00pm
I’m always a big fan of seeing new twists on classic miniatures types. There’s been troll miniatures around for seemingly forever, but I have to say, I’ve not seen so many whale trolls. Well, for those that are interested in the Toa Orcs that are coming from Punga Miniatures (like I am), then you’ll want […]

Sky Relics Fleet Core Minis Game Up On Kickstarter

30 November 2017 - 12:00pm
I mean, being in charge of a starfighter is pretty cool. So is being in charge of a couple of them. But for those that want real power, being an admiral in charge of a fleet of capital ships and their squadrons of fighters is really where it’s at. If that sort of power is […]

Thursday Terrain Corner

30 November 2017 - 11:00am
Thursday, Thursday, Thursday… never could get a handle on Thursdays. I certainly enjoy them, as it means we’re getting close to the weekend, but we’re obviously not quite there yet. So, it’s like, “Woo! Almost-weekend-eve!” Ah well, we’ll get there in time. But before then, we need to make your gaming tables look good. Today […]

Z-Man Games Talks With Original Designers of History of the World

30 November 2017 - 10:00am
The study of how history changes over time is called Historiography. Yes, history can and very often does change over time. As new evidence and sources come out, and more analysis is done on the subject, things we thought were one way can very much prove to be another. So, as Z-Man interviewed the original […]

30 November 2017 - 9:00am
Thanksgiving was just a week ago, and I know I’ve still got plenty of leftovers to go through. But when one is trapped on a desert island, there’s not a lot of sweet potato casserole and cornbread stuffing just laying around. You might find some coconuts, but resources are going to scarce and you might […]
