Year 2020


Some of you had been by the Mantic HQ during one of their Open Days in the past. You got to see the latest figures, talk with the people that work there, and maybe even get some leaked information from Ronnie himself. Well, now you can do that 5 days a week as Mantic HQ is now open. They've created a new shop and play space that you can stop by and hang out in whenever you want (during open hours, of course).

The folks over at Footsore Miniatures are looking to expand their Mortal Gods range, and they're headed to Ancient Greece to do it. Why not? There's a ton of amazing monsters and heroes to be had, many are inconic and have been beloved for generations. Soon, you'll abe able to bring these figures to your tabletops, as the Kickstarter to fund this new range will begin in just over a week's time.

Some of you might have heard or read the Mighty Tiny manga. For those that haven't, it's a far-off, distant future where mankind is no more. However, mice and rats have evolved to have human-like characteristics. The two groups almost never mix, and an uneasy peace exists between the two nations. However, tensions are brewing. Can a war be avoided? That's your goal in Mighty Tiny: Tales of the Old Empire, a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

Fridaaaaaay! And I'm not stuffed up and my nose isn't running and I feel good! And I'm just excited overall because just yesterday, I tasted what could very well be my new favorite hot sauce I've ever had. I loved it so much that I went to the site they sell it at and bought not only a big bottle of that sauce, but they have a set of every sauce they make (14 total) for a ridiculously cheap price. So, that's what I'm eagerly waiting for. And while I wouldn't suggest putting hot sauce on gaming stuff, we do have some tasty, bite-sized stories for you now.

Today on the platter we have: Puppets War Holding Should Pad Sale This Weekend and Kraken Releases Alchemy Line of Dice.

The British are coming! The British are coming!

That's right. Across the plains of Europe, the British are mounting up and headed to war against the East. World War III has broken out and the British are doing their part. Battlefront has started taking pre-orders for their new British book and units for Team Yankee. Get your name on the list and get these figures as soon as they're released.

Want to help out with one of the largest game companies when they go to shows? Want to feel like you're part of a team? Want to get some cool stuff for helping out? If you answered "yes" to these questions, then Paizo is looking for you. They're seeking GMs to help out and run events when they head to conventions. Check out the details to get your name in the hat when submissions open later this month.

The Kickstarter campaign for the next Animal Adventures book, Secrets of Gullet Cove, draws ever closer. As it draws near, Painting Polygons is showing off some of the figures that will be inside. This time around, we get Bartolomy, the bard. Though not one to sing, he does tell tales and weave poems for the enjoyment of all around.

And he's got just the biggest floopears ever!

One of the greatest spies ever, Natasha Romanoff, also known as Black Widow, has had a bit of a checkered past. However, she's on the side of the superheroes these days. And she brings unprecedented espionage abilities to bear. Soon, you'll be able to don the black and head to battle with the Black Widow deck for Marvel Champions. Let's take a look at what's in store.

The Blood Angels are the vampires of the Space Marine legions. But it's not all ripping apart throats. They do use ranged weapons too. In this instance, grenade launchers and volkite serpentas. These new units can be ordered now from Forge World to help flesh out your armies.

Discuss

Want to get into the games industry? Want to help create one of the hottest new games on the market? Want to handle some of the most famous superhero properties around? If you answered "yes" to those questions, Atomic Mass Games is looking for you. They're hiring a new Game Producer.

Cities are big. However, games about cities don't have to be. Micro City is one such game. This pocket-sized game can travel with you as you travel around your actual city. In it, players are looking to build the greatest city that they can. The second edition of the game is up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

From the company that brought you Shroedinger's Cats, it's Pavlov's Dogs (anyone want to be their next game will be Darwin's Finches?). It's a new party game where players take on the role of pooches that are trying to complete different tests brought about by famous dogtors of old (not a typo). How fast are your reflexes? How good is your memory? You'll find out when playing Pavlov's Dogs. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Wyrd has posted up some new artwork to get you excited about the upcoming faction for Malifaux, the Explorer's Society. They're the Daeva and they look like some sort of tall, lanky, gentleman. They've got really long arms and long fingers. They're like some sort of slender... man... or something.

I've been talking about weeks going by quickly. I realize now that I probably shouldn't've. I also just yesterday realized that we're coming up to a 3-day weekend, as we have Monday off here in the States. With these two things in mind, this morning has been taking an eternity. Either that or I'm just being super-efficient with all the work I've been doing so far. One of the two, anyway. So, while I wait and wait and wait for the day to get going, let's also look at making your gaming table look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Remnants of Battle 3D Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter, Barrels and Crates Terrain Up On Kickstarter, Orc Stadium Terrain Up On Kickstarter, and Industrial Fans 2 Set Available From Kromlech.

Discuss

Potato Pirates 2: Enter the Spudnet. It's a game that uses potatos (that are pirates) in order to help teach cybersecurity and computer networking.

Because that's the world we live in these days.

By the way, I'm not saying that there's a thing wrong with that. I find it absolutely amazing. Some people don't get concepts right away. If you can find a good metaphor that gives you the information in a new and creative way that does jive with your learning style, bring it on. This new standalone game does just that and it's up on Kickstarter now.

The two had been working closely for some time, but now it's fully official. Asmodee has acquired Repos Production and their library of games (Mascarade being one of my personal favorites from them). Not really much more to say, so let's get to the press release.

Discuss

Wizards of the Coast has announced a new book for Dungeons & Dragons. It's called Explorer's Guide to Wildemount and will give players all the information required in order to successfully navigate the continent in Exandria. However, even if you're using it for just whatever game you might be playing at the time, the book will offer a whole new set of character subclasses, spells, monsters, and more. Expect this book on store shelves this March.

It's been rainy here in Atlanta for a couple days now. It's been a perfect time to watch Coraline, one of my personal favorite movies. It's supposed to rain again today, and while watching the movie, I could also slap Coraline: Beware the Other Mother down on the table. The new board game based on the movie (which was based on the book) is now available.

It's not just a brand of whiskey. Fireball is the name of a starship in the Star Wars universe. Primarily created as a racing ship, it's been fitted with some weapons to make it a fighter (Spike would be proud). Soon, it'll be racing its way onto tabletops in X-Wing from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at just what you can expect from this "explosion with wings."

Discuss

The un-life of a vampire can be rough. You spend a century comfy in your castles until the townsfolk come with torches and pitchforks, driving you from your home. So you roam, looking for a new place to hang our hat. Perhaps this city would work, but you can't just move in and take over at once. That would bring too much suspicion and the gaze of the Inquisition. Instead, you must work slowly and stealthily. Of course, you do have time on your hand. That's what you'll be doing in Masters of the Night, a new cooperative vampire board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Ah, Dark Tower. That was the name of the first comic book shop I ever went to. You could say that it's where I became a nerd. Unfortunately, this game isn't about running a comic shop in suburban St. Louis. But it's still pretty cool. Many of you have maybe played the Dark Tower board game from almost 40 years ago. If you have, you already know what's up. If not, well, read on, as Restoration Games is looking to restore the game to your tabletops with Return to Dark Tower (but with all new mechanics, rules, pieces, and technology, of course). The game's up on Kickstarter now.

Leder Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Oath: Chronicles of Empire, a new board game where players are trying to tell the story of the empire as it goes along. Each play through is unique, and what you do in one game will have effects on games further down the line (so, it has legacy elements in it). Will the Chancellor maintain control, or will outside forces come in and topple everything? That's up to you to decide.

In just under 2 weeks (twooooooooooo weeks!), players will have a new adventure to go on in the epic world of Symbaroum. Free League Publishing has announced Symbar - Mother of Darkness, their next adventure in the Chronicle of the Crown of Thorns adventure path. Though, even if you're not playing along the entire way, GMs can certainly find a way to introduce the concepts into their games.

Along with the book, there's going to be a new GM screen, a map, and another softcover book coming that day. Let's check it out.

It's the middle of the week already. This one's been going by quickly, as did last week. Though, this time around, I can't blame being zonked out on cough syrup as to why chunks of time seem to just disappear. I'm continuing to feel better. Still have tissues here for the occasional stuffy nose, but I hope to be 100% over this by tomorrow or Friday. Definitely by the weekend wherein I'll be... ... umm... not really doing much. Ah well, I can still snack on some bite-sized gaming stories as I work my way there.

Today on the platter we have: Animal STL Files For RPGs up on Kickstarter, Masters Volume 1 Printable Sci-Fi Minis Up On Kickstarte, and Dragon Scale Dice Up On Kickstarter.

A lot of people over on Kickstarter want more with their pledge. And I can't blame them. Everyone wants to get more, not less, for their money. So, if you're looking to get a whole ton of figures (almost 250 of them) along with all the cards, dice, and rest for $100, oh, and a game to go with it all, you might want to check out Grendha: Search for Lost Triumphs. It's a new strategic miniatures board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
