Dragon Dodge Card Game Up On Kickstarter

You know, when it comes to dragons, you can either dodge or get stomped/shredded/bitten/burned. I think the best thing to do would be to dodge. And that’s just what you and the rest of your team of wizards is looking to do in Dragon Dodge. Prod the dragons towards your opponents and maneuver your way around the battlefield, changing it as you go. The game is up now on Kickstarter.

It was a big rock!
Just about everyone I know will get that reference, since we all watched the hell out of the Batman: The Animated Series back in the day.

Now, that episode can come to your tabletops with the Batman: The Animated Series Almost Got ‘Im Card Game (bit of a mouthful, that is), available now from Cryptozoic.

Empires of the Void II Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Terrible war has been raging across the galaxy. Earth was one of the last casualties. Seeing that the species could not survive on the planet that sustained them for so long, a large population was sent off in a Worldship to the edges of the galaxy. Unfortunately, directly behind them were more worldships of their alien enemies. Upon reaching these outer fringes, all the groups look to build up their resources and mount an attack against their foes. That’s the story behind Empires of the Void II, a new stand-alone board game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

IDW Games Releases Purrlock Holmes Board Game

Do you like cats? Do you like mysteries? Do you like world-famous detectives? Do you like piles and piles of horrible puns? Would you go to a bean-eating movie with George Wendt?

Soul Puzzler Token-Laying Game Up On Kickstarter

I’ve always been a fan of abstract puzzle games. They often feel like a real match of wits, as both players look to make the board the way they want it, while keeping your opponent’s moves and advantages to a minimum. A new puzzle game is up on Kickstarter now. It’s called Soul Puzzler.

Song of Swords Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

Sing a song of six pence. A pocket full of rye.
Well, I guess this isn’t a song about six pence. More a song of swords. No, this isn’t tied in with the Heavy Metal Kickstarter (though that’d be cool). Song of Swords is a new fantasy RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.

The Throwin’ Rocks at Fish RPG Now Available

Bugs Crawling Out Of People has released The Throwin’ Rocks at Fish RPG.

New Ogre Available To Order For Blood Bowl From Games Workshop

Just the other day I got the new Blood Bowl box set and put it together. It’s been funny to see how the models have gotten bigger over the years. I know there’s even more extreme examples out there. So if you’ve got yourself an Ogre for your team, your older figures might not be so big by comparison. But Games Workshop is here to help with a new Ogre mini in their webshop.

Review Roundup

Hello Saturday! How are you? Is everything going well? Of course it is! It’s Saturday!

So, let’s not wait around. Let’s get right to the reviews so we can get back to it being Saturday. Personally, I’m thinking of watching a movie and questioning Netflix’s algorithms in what “more like this” really means…

Today we have: The Pirate Republic, Kingdomino, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Board Game – Shadows of the Past, Adrenaline, Ave Roma, Hero Realms, Food Truck Champion, Sorcerers’ Skirmish, Carcassonne: Amazonas, Oceanos, The Flow of History, Citadels, Broken Legions, Haspelknecht, and GKR: Heavy Hitters.

We’ve seen a lot of different previews about how the different Doctors work in Time of the Daleks, the new Doctor Who board game coming from Gale Force Nine. But what about the Doctor’s greatest nemesis, the Daleks (whose own greatest enemy is a flight of stairs)? How do the Daleks work and what will cause them to win the game? We get a look at that here in this preview.

2nd Edition Rules for Relics Available For Free

Gavin has been busy over in his Tor Gaming workshop. The amounts of tea he’s been drinking could be considered “insane,” even for a Brit. But all that caffeine has resulted in a new edition of Relics. You can download them, for free, over on the Tor Gaming website. To go along with it, there’s some new releases and pre-releases available as well.

Friday Snippets

Man, no day has felt entirely “right” this week. Monday was an amalgam of Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Tuesday was like a Monday. Wednesday was kinda like a Friday. Yesterday was like a Saturday, but a lot busier. Today’s… still getting started, honestly. But it doesn’t entirely feel like a Friday. I guess that’s what happens when you bookend 2 days at the office with days working from home.
Well, one way that today is going to feel like a proper Friday is by serving up some bite-sized gaming stories. Also, pizza for dinner. But that’s not until this evening.

Today on the platter we have: Quizmania Coming To Kickstarter, Donate and get a Free Book From Lamentations of the Flame Princess, Expedition RPG Launches Quest-Writing Competition, New Xyston Miniatures Releases Available, Wamp releases two new 1/12th Scale busts, Pipmen Playing Cards Up On Kickstarter, Ravage: Dungeons of Plunder Coming to Kickstarter, and New Legion Armoury Releases Available From Kromlech.

Elder Sign: Omens of the Deep is Now Available

When you go out into the ocean, you can never be truly certain what is lurking just below the waves underneath your boat. That’s why you’re not going to find me out there. No, I don’t actually believe that Cthulhu is down there. But at the same time, I’m not ruling it out, either. And things like Elder Signs: Omens of the Deep could actually be prophetic… Ok, not really, but it’s fun to imagine. You can pick up your copy now.

New Guild Ball Releases Available From Steamforged Games

Happy Guild Ball Release Day, everyone! As you would expect, I’m rather excited about the next 3 releases being made available. However, I won’t be picking up Hag right away for my Fisherman’s Guild. I’m gonna be getting her at Adepticon. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t run out and get the new figures right away.

New Konflikt ’47 Releases Available From Warlord Games

Trevor Noah has a new special out on Netflix. In it, he has this whole bit about Russian being the scariest accent out there. If you ever want to frighten someone away, just start talking in a thick Russian accent. So I could only assume that if you were to have a conversation with the Daughters of the Motherland, available now for Konflikt ’47 from Warlord Games, it’d be a frightening experience. You might just prefer to talk to the Flammspinne Panzermech instead.

New Imperial Fist Terminators From Forge World

With my love of giant robots, I’ve always loved Terminators in 40k. I know. I know. They’re a guy in a suit. But considering the suit-to-guy ratio there, they’re basically giant robots (I mean, Gundams are “a guy in a suit, too”). I’ve just always loved the way Terminators looked. If you’re a Terminator fan, like me, and you also like Imperial Fists, you’ll want to check out the new unit and bits available to order from Forge World.
