    Stone Blade Entertainment has released their Ascension: Year One Collector’s Edition over in their webshop. The set includes all the sets and promo sets from the first year of the game’s release, all in one box. The cards also are done up in foil, which is pretty neat. Many of them also have new, alternate artwork from the original version.
    There’s only a limited number of these, so if you want one, you’d better hurry.

    Fantasy Flight Games is showing off two new character expansion packs for Imperial Assault. This time it’s Chewbacca and the AT-ST driven by General Weiss. These sets don’t just replace the tokens that come in the base game with minis (well, there’s an AT-ST in the main box, but the Chewbacca’s just a token), but they also come with extra upgrade and character cards, as well as new scenarios you can play. Pretty nice for just a single purchase.
    I kinda want to get one of the AT-ST ones just to have the cool mini.

    Polygon posted up an article talking about the success of the Exploding Kittens Kickstarter. They point out that, while the campaign made $8.7 million, it’s not like that money’s all profit. That’s gross, not net (for you finances-type). It’s a common misconception about Kickstarter campaigns. Anyway, check out the article. It’s a good read, and a good “reality check” on what people think happens after a Kickstarter campaign ends.

    Guillotine Games has a bunch more information and preview photos of their upcoming game, Blood Rage, to show off. The game is part resource management, part worker placement, part battle strategy, and all a good time had by all (I know. I’ve played it). Players are in charge of their own viking clan and trying to gain the most glory before the world ends, and then ends again, and ends some more times just for good measure.
    Game design is by Eric Lang, with miniatures created by Studio McVey.
