Mantic Games Announces Here’s Negan Board Game

In The Walking Dead, the zombies are often not the scariest or most dangerous things around. The still-living are often much more evil. Such is the case with Negan. In the new game Here’s Negan, coming from Mantic Games, players take on the role of Negan’s lieutenants in the early days of his reign. They must clear out the Sanctuary, making it safe… err… well, “safe” for those that want to stay there.

Simulation Theory Board Game Coming to Kickstarter

Adella – The Game of Crimps Board Game Up On Kickstarter

It’s amazing what can be done with 3D printing these days. Up until seeing this campaign, I didn’t realize you could 3D print with wood. That’s still kinda blowing my mind. Adella – the Game of Crimps puts you in charge of your own ship, sailing the seas, and it’s played on a very interesting board that doubles as the box as it folds up for storage. You should check this one out, just because of how it looks on its own.

Plaid Hat Games Announces Neon Gods Board Game

You know, back in the 70s and 80s, we had a much different idea of what the 2000s were going to be like. I mean, we’re less than a year and a half from 2020, and yet, I don’t think baseball is going to be like Super Baseball 2020 that I used to play on my Super Nintendo. But what if it was much more like that? The neon, the corporate takeovers, the flying cars, the gang warfare? That’s the future that Plaid Hat Games sets their Neon Gods board game in.

Z-Man Games Posts New Mesozooic Preview

CMON Launches Cthulhu: Death May Die Kickstarter

Nothing can stop the evil incantation that the cultists are doing. Even if every one of them was wiped out, the elder gods will still return to Earth. The only hope is that with enough disruption, the immortal monsters might just be slightly mortal for a moment when they arrive. If that’s the case, then the world might not be plunged into an all-consuming chaos of insanity. That’s your goal in Cthulhu: Death May Die, the new board game from CMON up on Kickstarter now.

Anyway, today we have: Ganz Schon Clever, Getaway Driver, Onitama: Sensei’s Path Expansion, Impulse, Alien Artifacts, and Tadmor.

Fantasy Flight Announces Horrific Journeys Expansion For Mansions of Madness
