Way of the Fighter Relaunches on Kickstarter

Round 2… Fight!
So, round 1 didn’t go so well for Way of the Fighter, the Street-Fighter-Style board game from Soda Pop Miniatures. The campaign was stagnating badly and hadn’t reached its goal a week from the end. So it was taken down. With a bit of refactoring, the game’s back up on Kickstarter not quite a week later. And this time around, they’ve already passed their funding goal.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts New Angeles Rule Book

I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford to just go out and buy every game that comes out onto the market. Even games that fit a particular interest grouping of mine, there’s just so many, and I only have so much storage space and gaming time, I like to know what I’m getting into before I put my money down. That’s why it’s so helpful when a company puts the rules for their games online. Well, Fantasy Flight Games has done that for New Angeles, their new game set in the Android universe.

Battlefront Announces Tiger I Tanks Marsch Edition

The German Tiger Tank was one of the most feared pieces of war on the battlefields of Europe during WWII. It was no small feat to actually defeat one in combat. Many allied tankers would just do their best to avoid conflicts with one. Well, Battlefront is letting you field groups of them in your Flames of War armies, and they’ve also made very limited numbers of Marsch Edition boxes with extra content.

Abandon Planet Board Game Up On Kickstarter

“I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.”
One of my favorite lines from Futurama, and one that’s been thrown around a lot lately.

That’s just what’s happening in Abandon Planet, a new board game from the creator of The Resistance that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Fantasy Flight Previews the U-Wing For X-Wing

There’s a lot of ships in the Star Wars universe with movable parts. X-Wings and B-Wings first come to mind, but there are many others. Until now, all the figures for the X-Wing Miniatures Game didn’t have movable parts. Well, with the release of the U-Wing (I’m going to name mine Patrick), that will change. And it’s not just aesthetics. There are different rules for when the wings are out for maneuvering or folded for landing.

Monday Terrain Corner

Well, it’s Monday and I’m back in the office after a very long and very nice weekend. 3 days of gaming/eating and then a chill day at home and watching my first Christmas movie of the year (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, to be exact).

Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5 Up On Kickstarter

Pretty much every gamer out there knows of Kingdom Death. The original Kickstarter campaign made over $2mil. But then… oh the troubles. It was one of the campaigns that took the longest to actually deliver. However, from all I’ve seen, it was worth the wait… and worth the weight, since the final game’s components made it so heavy that selling it retail wasn’t really an option. Well, the game is back up on Kickstarter with a new, revised version, and a new record-breaking Kickstarter.

Who doesn’t like getting a package in the mail? These days (and considering those of you in the audience), there’s a good chance it’s that game you’ve been waiting on seemingly forever since the Kickstarter campaign ended. Well, once the campaign for this game ends, you’ll be waiting for a package of Package!?, a new abstract strategy game up on Kickstarter.

Places by the Way Module Series for 5th Edition Up On Kickstarter

It’s one thing to get a one-shot module to augment your D&D game. It’s another to get a group of them that you can sprinkle throughout a larger campaign, creating effectively a “B-story” for everything else that might be going on. That’s just what the Places by the Way module set looks to create. It’s up on Kickstarter now.

Hey everyone.
I hope you had a good Thanksgiving (for those that celebrate) and a good Thursday and Friday (for those that don’t).

More Guild Ball today and maybe building a Gundam kit. But, obviously, even if I take a couple days off, the news doesn’t stop. There’s a lot more holiday sales going on.

Happy Thanksgiving

Yes, I know you Canadians are like, “Thanksgiving was about a month ago, eh?” *is looking at you, PA* But still, to everyone, a happy Thanksgiving (even those that don’t celebrate. I still hope you have a great Thursday).

I’m going to be getting my gaming on and cooking up a storm. I hope you’re able to do the same.

Ether Wars Relaunches on Kickstarter

Not every Kickstarter is successful the first time around. Some people would say, “well, you didn’t make it the first time. I guess you’re finished.” I say, “Nay nay!” (RIP John Pinette) Many Kickstarter campaigns start out with their first project not making it. But after some refining, retooling, and reconfiguring, they relaunch and can come out further ahead than they ever had dreamed with the first campaign. Will that happen with Ether Wars? Only with your help. They’re back up on Kickstarter now.

Wizkds Releases Rock Paper Wizard Card Game

Who says wizards can’t get nasty when there’s gold involved? Research materials and books are expensive, y’know. So when there’s a pile of gold to be split, every wizard is going to want to get their share of it, and they’re not above using spells in order to do so. That’s the story behind Rock Paper Wizard, the new fast-paced card game from WizKids, available now in North American stores (the world will have to wait).

Or, for those of you not in the US. Happy Wednesday!
As for me, I’m going to be busy when I get home. I need to bake another pumpkin pie, put turkey 1 into the brine bucket, speed-thaw turkey 2 (place in cold, running water for a couple hours), and make whipped cream for the pies (cream, sugar, and spices).

The Crossing Pathfinder Adventure Up On Kickstarter

The town of Ferryport has had some tough times recently. Merchant vessels are disappearing along the river west of town. So, simple case of river pirates, right? Just go in and beat ’em up and possibly get back some of the merchant loot. Badabing, badaboom. You’re done.

Munchkin Messenger Bag Deal From Steve Jackson Games

I have a messenger bag that I use to carry my laptop around, and also just various other useful things (like pens and notepad when I’m at a convention or such). It’s incredibly plain. I wouldn’t mind getting a bit more “nerdy” bag. And thankfully, Steve Jackson Games is here to help. They’ve got a Munchkin messenger bag. And until December 15th, they have a special deal going with it.
