I love old kung-fu movies. 36th Chamber of Shaolin. The Five Deadly Venoms. Heroes of the East. Challenge of the Masters. Half a Loaf of Kung-Fu. And, of course, Drunken Master. As such, I love when characters like those from the movies make it into minis games. Well, Wyrd has some new ones coming to...

Dungeons. They’re full of treasure. We all know that. As adventurers, we want to go diving in after that treasure. Of course, it’s not simply “enter dungeon. Get treasure.” If that were the case, the treasure wouldn’t be there when you got to it, because someone else wou...
