Sauriana 54mm Miniatures Game Up On Kickstarter

You get 54mm dinosaur minis.
If that didn’t get you to go check out the campaign for Sauriana, I’m not sure what more you would need. But in an effort to not just make this post a single sentence and a link, I’ll elaborate. The game is set in an alternate version of the 19th century where steampunk scientists calling themselves the Cope Collective do battle with adventurers from the Explorer’s Club (and the dinosaurs they’ve found) as well as the Othniellians (the “cowboys of science”) and the hybrid creatures they are creating. The game is currently up on Kickstarter.

Review Roundup

It’s that time again, everyone. It’s Saturday. When you read this, it’ll be at least 2pm, Eastern. But for me, currently, it’s 5:30am. I’ve got a group of friends coming over for some gaming starting at 9am and have a bunch to get done before that. We’ll probably get in some Ascension, Blokus, maybe Dogs of War. All good stuff. Also, we’ll probably talk about characters for a D&D game that’s starting to coalesce. But that’s as may be, in the meantime, I need to type up your Review Roundup for the day.

Today we have: Arcadia Quest, The Pioneers Program, Dungeon Saga, The Hunt for the Ring, Tripods & Triplanes, Brides & Bribes, Terraforming Mars, Guild Ball, Cry Havoc, Flip City and Flip City: Reuse, Steam Time, M.U.L.E., Brick Party, and Snowdonia.

Imperial Skies Rulebook Now Available

It’s the end of the 19th Century. Technological innovations have made it so man and machine have taken to the skies in large numbers. Smoke-belching behemoths ply the airways as they patrol for enemy flying ships. The enemy is spotted! To battlestations! Wings of smaller aircraft take off, looking to intercept the enemy forces. Massive flying battleships, dreadnaughts, cruisers, and destroyers engage in combat far above the Earth’s surface. That’s the story behind Imperial Skies, which is available now.

Blackwater Gulch Second Edition Up On Kickstarter

The Year of New Editions rolls along. This time headed to the weird West with Gangfight Games’ Blackwater Gulch, 2nd Edition. For those that don’t know, Blackwater Gulch is set during the Gold Rush era (you know, like where the 49ers get their name from). Everyone’s looking to strike it rich. Now, there’s two ways to get gold. You can go out and dig it up for yourself. Or you can just ambush some unsuspecting prospector and grab it. This has created gangs all around the town, each looking out for themselves and their own. Adding to that, there’s plenty of spooky and creepy things roaming the desert that’d love to take a bite out of the human population, literally. Which gang will you back?

New Konflikt ’47 Kits Available From Warlord Games

Watch The History Channel for a couple days, an undoubtedly you’ll see some sort of program about strange, occult things that the Nazis were researching during WWII. Or just go watch/read Hellboy.

Anyway, in the alternate-history world of Konflikt ’47, those occult searches yielded some good results, some of which you can see in the new releases available from Warlord Games.

AntiMatter Games Launches DeepWars – Blood Reef Kickstarter

Under da sea… *ducks from all the things just thrown at me for getting that song stuck in people’s heads*
Though this coral reef for DeepWars from AntiMatter Games is a bit more deadly and a lot less cheery than the one in The Little Mermaid. Though there certainly are mermaids in this new Blood Reef expansion set. They’re called the Nereids. I don’t think they really sing all that much.
