Mantic Games Announces Here’s Negan Board Game

In The Walking Dead, the zombies are often not the scariest or most dangerous things around. The still-living are often much more evil. Such is the case with Negan.

Plaid Hat Games Announces Neon Gods Board Game

You know, back in the 70s and 80s, we had a much different idea of what the 2000s were going to be like.

But what if it was much more like that? The neon, the corporate takeovers, the flying cars, the gang warfare? That’s the future that Plaid Hat Games sets their Neon Gods board game in.

Fantasy Flight Previews the TIE Fighter For X-Wing

Besides the Star Destroyer, the most iconic ship in the entire Imperial fleet has got to be the standard TIE fighter, or TIE/ln for you that prefer such nomenclature.
