Friday Snippets

Would you believe the year is half-over already? Yeah. As we stand on the cusp of July, the first half of the year is behind us. Is it going by fast for you, too? It certainly has for me. Personally, I’m ready for autumn, because it’s my favorite time of year. Plus, I want to make pumpkin pie, and if I tried to serve that now, people would be all, “… no.” Ah well. Since I can’t munch on pumpkin pie, I can still munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New 15mm BMP-1P from Khurasan, New releases from Terrible Kids Stuff – July 2017, Legionary Saber Jetbike Available From Kromlech, Hand of Glory Miniatures Coming to Kickstarter Next Month, Brigade Models Release 6mm Neo-Soviet Tanks, and Cold War Miniatures Launches Hawkmen Kickstarter.

21 Days Survival Board Game Up On Kickstarter

The sea is a cruel mistress. Entirely unforgiving, if you’re stranded out there, the chances of survival are slim. But the spirit to continue on is strong. That’s just what the survivors of the Esperanza, a ship that went down with 163 people not getting out. Four did, and they’re hoping that they’ll be found. But will their little raft hold together? Will they run out of rations? Will a passing ship see them? That’s just what you’ll be hoping for in 21 Days, a survival board game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

All the races in Beyond the Gates of Antares were once human. But with the different planets they all colonized, and the different environmental factors therein, they diversified.

And any general wanting to win might want to check him out. He’s available to order now for Beyond the Gates of Antares.

Critters Below Survival Card Game Up On Kickstarter

When the bombs start to fall from the sky, the safest place to be is in another country that’s not having such an issue… but when that’s not an option, you might want to head underground. Safe (relatively) below the surface, you do your best to stay alive. It’s not just the bomb blasts that might get you. You also have to worry about running out of supplies or creeping radiation. It’s not easy, but it’s what you’re going to have to try and do in Critters Below, a survival card game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

ClawCon Coming To Saint Robert, Missouri This October

I wish it was October. I really do. It’s quite possibly my favorite month. The cool temperature. The beautiful leaves.

And if I happened to be anywhere near Saint Robert, Missouri in October, I might stop by ClawCon.

Love is a many-splendored thing. At least, so I’m told. *is a grump and single, but waddyagonnado?* Couple get together, go on dates, fall in love. All that mushy stuff.

The anticipation for the release of the new Legend of the Five Rings game from Fantasy Flight is growing. Just the other day, I was hearing about people getting together “buy-lists” for people headed to Gen Con, saying what they wanted their ninja-shopper friend to purchase for them. Well, at the risk of increasing the hype more (to be fair, I am, generally, a hype-increaser. It just comes with the territory), here’s a preview that Fantasy Flight posted about the Dragon Clan.

It’s always good to make sure you’ve got the most up-to-date rules for your games.

The week continues along. We’ll get back to that ever-loving weekend soon. Just another couple of days and it’ll be time once more. And I’m sure a lot of people in the US are going to be celebrating this weekend. With the 4th of July being a Tuesday this year, I’m guessing a lot of people are going to take this weekend to grill, shoot off some fireworks, and just celebrate America. I know I’m getting together with some friends on Saturday for just that sort of thing. I’m sure there’ll be tasty snacks there. Let’s snack on some tasty bite-sized gaming stories now, too.

Asmodee Announces Three New Unlock! Adventures

You find yourself in a dark and spooky house. Lightning strikes outside, briefly illuminating your surroundings. You start to hear strange noises from somewhere in the house. You run. You trip. You hit your head. And that’s when you wake up inside a submarine, deep underwater. The hull is creaking. Water is seeping in. You need to find a way out! You go from one room to the next, but bang your head on a portal as you go through. You wake up on a beach. It seems nice and pleasant, until a cutlass is pointed at your face and you realize you’re surrounded by pirates! Those three adventures are the next in the Unlock! series of “escape room”-style games coming from Asmodee and Space Cowboys.
