GameTale Game Book Up On Kickstarter

I remember having a couple Choose Your Own Adventure books back when I was a kid. They were a great way to spend a couple days, going through all the different possibilities and finding out what could happen in them. GameTale is just such a type of book for a new generation of readers. Follow Gremmy the gremlin as you lead him on all sorts of wondrous adventures. You can back the book on Kickstarter now.

Renegade Game Studios Announces New Edition of Arboretum

Despite being a tried and true flatlander (being from the midwest as I am), I do love trees and forests. They're just so big and majestic. So, having a game where you're looking to cultivate your trees is certainly appealing. And Arboretum is one that has gotten plenty of praise since it initially came out. But that doesn't mean that it couldn't be improved, so thought Renegade Game Studios. They're coming out with a new edition that's got new artwork and updated symbols to help make sure everyone can play, including the color-blind.

Monday Terrain Corner

Let's try to not focus on the fact that it's Monday and we're back at the office (even if it what we do is pretty awesome and we enjoy it a lot). Instead, let's think back to the weekend we had and all the awesome gaming (at least, I hope you had some awesome gaming. I did, and there's even video proof). Next week's another chance for gaming. And, of course, if there's gaming, there may be gaming mats and terrain. So let's show you some new stuff now and you might be gaming on them next time you play.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Saxon Longship From Sarissa Precision, Heroic Maps Releases Captain Bastide's Pirate Den, New Industrial Terrain MDF Kits From Pwork Wargame, and New Tropical Swamp Mats From Deep-Cut Studio.

Modiphius Releases Ravage: Dungeons of Plunder Board Game

Most of the time, when I'm posting about Modiphius, it's about a new RPG book coming out. However, this is a bit different. Did you know that they make board games, too? Well, if not before, you know now. They have released Ravage: Dungeons of Plunder, a new fantasy dungeon-crawl board game that has competitive, cooperative, and solo modes of play.

New Winter Bolt Action Releases Available From Warlord Games

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, it's getting warmer and warmer as the days go by. But, eventually, it'll start heading the other direction and cold will once more set in. Any army out in the field must be prepared for that eventuality, lest their troops simply freeze out in the field. Warlord Games is now taking orders for some British and American winter troops, as well as a new German tank destroyer.

International Tabletop Day. It's like our true gaming holiday. I'll be spending it playing D&D with friends (even doing a live stream and then uploading the video later, because that seems like a good idea at the time).

Wyrd Previews Horomontangi For The Other Side

As is their tradition, Wyrd has posted up their Friday preview for The Other Side. I'm always happy to see them, 1) because I like previews and 2) it means it's Friday. Well, this one, when it popped up, I was like, "whoah!" because it's a giant lizard/dragon thing named Horomontangi. Fridays need more giant lizard/dragons.

Steamforged Explains Solthecian Minor Guild

Season 4 for Guild Ball will be coming out this year, and along with it, some rebalancing of some figures for various Guilds to bring them up to speed with others that see the pitch more often. This is also the year of Minor Guilds. It'd been announced that the Solthecian Church was going to be the Minor Guild for the Union, but there's been some odd releases if that was the case. Well, we get an explanation of how all that's going to work in this post.

Corvus Belli Announces Smoke & Mirrors Expansion for Aristeia

Spectator sports are half physical contest and half entertainment, after all, so having a few mirrors and some smoke makes sense, especially in a contest like Aristeia. As such, a quartet of new players will be making their way to the pitch. And they're coming in the appropriately titled Smoke & Mirrors set. We get a look at them here.

Modiphius Taking Pre-Orders For Mutant: Mechatron Book

In the far-off future, Mankind has left quite a lot of things going on Earth that they know very little about anymore. One such thing was the huge robot factory at the bottom of the ocean. It was turned over to the AIs and left going while humanity headed up into the stars. However, that was long ago and the robots being made now are starting to become self-aware. What will this do to the balance of power on the old home planet? That's for you to decide in Mutant: Mechatron, a new rulebook coming out for the Mutant: Year Zero RPG. You can get your name on the list to get the book as soon as it's released from Modiphius.

The week continues its inevitable march towards the weekend. It's been a busy one for me, with lots of releases coming out tomorrow, there's a lot of work to be done.
