Board Game Quest posts Ticket to Ride: Europe review

Board Game Quest takes a look at the Days of Wonder Ticket to Ride: Europe expansion and gives you their thoughts on the situation.

Source

From the review:

Whenever I visited my grandparents as a child, one of the first things I played with was their train set. They had a massive set of duplo trains for me to use and it was one of the highlights of my visit. I’m guessing that might have something to do with my enjoyment 0f the theme for Ticket to Ride. Today we will be looking at the second addition to the Ticket to Ride family, Ticket to Ride: Europe. In this edition, players are claiming train routes between cities of turn-of-the-century Europe instead of the United States. Is this game a worthy successor or should you stick with the first Ticket to Ride game. Read on.

Ticket To Ride: Europe is a route building and set collection game for 2-5 players, plays well at all player counts. Ticket to Ride: Europe plays in about one hour.

Titan-forge previews new Metal Beards renders

Titan-forge gives us a look at some new renders for their Metal Beards project including the Dread Cannon and the Chainbeards.

Source

From the campaign:

Wooo hooo guys & gals! Are you ready to party? Year 2013 was quite good for us, but it seems that 2014 will be even better!

In this update we wanted to talk about some of our plans for this campaign. We entered a steady phase of the kickstarter campaigns when the stretch goals become unlocked in a matter of days instead of hours, but this is pretty normal for crowdfunding projects, and in truth, give us some breath and some space. We designed this campaign as a two stage project – first stage was the development of Metal Beards range, and on reaching the 15 000 pounds stretch goal, we began the second phase – creating Sons of Kashan Vra. However, this doesn’t mean, the regular Metal Beards will only have those units which are already unlocked, no. Some of you folks provide us with cool ideas we could use to make some really nice models for the dwarves, and right now, we decided to add two more unit choices to the Metal Beards:

a) 5 Metal Beards with Jet Packs
b) 5 Metal Beards gone berserk, with mohawk heads and dynamic poses.

Paulson Games previews new concept art sketch

Paulson Games posted up some new concept art for a new style of mech they’re thinking of working on and they’re looking for your feedback.

Source

From the preview:

A concept I was toying around with. Has inspiration elements from Shoji Kawamori’s art (macross/gundam) and XCom’s Mectoid. If I make a model for it’d be sized around 55-60mm so it’d be roughly on par with Infinity TAG suits. Working name for these would be R.O.I. Remote Operated Infantry “Roys” for slang.

Still on the fence with the design so I thought I’d toss it out there and see what you guys think.
