This game needs more dinosaurs

Greater Than Games made it up and over $140k for their Sentinel Tactics Kickstarter campaign and so have added dinosaurs to the game.


From the campaign:

Fans of the Sentinels of the Multiverse card game are familiar with the environment elements from Megalopolis and Insula Primalis, which are the two environments in the core game of Sentinel Tactics.

In Sentinel Tactics: The Flame of Freedom, there are a lot of things going on in each battle, and we didn’t want to overburden new players with TOO much going on, so the environment effects are fairly basic. However, we certainly want the environments to be able to shine the way they do in the SotM card game. As a result, in each copy of the Sentinel Tactics: Uprising expansion, we will be including extra advanced rules which explain how to introduce additional elements to the game. These elements can be used in skirmish or scenario play, and will make a notable difference to both sides, creating exciting new ways to play the game!

For the grand city of Megalopolis, we will be including track tokens, and a monorail!

Haste Games maybe a bit hasty

Haste Games has cancelled their Kickstarter campaign for retooling.


From the campaign:

Hi everyone, we decided to cancel the campaign and come back in a reasonable time period with a better product plus some casts done. It was hard to lead it back at that point because of the stretch goals structure that we created which forced the whole campaign from the start to be a ‘nothing or everything’ project which scared many people to back us. We want to come back with a fresh campaign with a better deal to everyone, from more accessible rewards to a wider variety of products and freebies.

We also want to encourage to all of you to follow us on facebook if you have not done it yet for further updates since the project remains completly alive.

Wisdom from the Wastelands Issue #38: Radiation Sickness

Skirmisher Publishing has posted issue 38 of Wisdom From the Wastelands up online for your reading pleasure.


In this issue:

Radiation. For many in a post-apocalyptic world, the word conjures burning thoughts of flesh-corrupting terror; for others, the tingling aura of mutation-granting nirvana. In the core Mutant Future rules this damage/mutation mechanic is cut and dried: you get crispy and a roll to save — fail enough times you get dead or sprout something. This first installment of a two-part series makes things a little … messier, by covering radiation sickness. Just the thing for those Mutant Lords who feel they’ve been coddling their mutants.

Polar Bear goes a-Conning

Hey kids,

Just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve got a couple weeks of travel ahead of me.

Tuesday, the fine fold from On the Lamb Games are picking me up on their way up to Adepticon. It’ll be my first time at that show (despite having grown up in Chicago and living in St. Louis for much of my life as well). It’s going to be a great time. If you’re gonna be there, perhaps we’ll run into one-another.

I don’t get much of a rest, though. I’ll be back home on Monday at some point only to leave out Tuesday for PAX East. Sleep? Who needs that? Like Adepticon, it’ll be my first time at PAX East. Also like Adepticon, if you’re at the show, come find me and we can chat about gaming.

So just wanted to let you guys know, since during the next couple weeks, I’ll be posting updates when I can along with convention coverage. But obviously, the regular posting schedule will be messed up a bit. I’ll try and keep it to a minimum, of course, but I’m sure it’ll happen.

I’m nervously excited with how busy these next two weeks will be. Hopefully good company and good gaming will happen.
