WYSIWYGames Running Z First Impact Kickstarter

I took French in high school (because I just knew that I was going to play hockey and I wanted to be able to talk with my French-Canadian teammates). However, as you can tell, I did not end up being drafted for the NHL, and so my French skills are lacking. As such, if I were trying to play a game that was in French, I would have a hell of a time. But that’s where translations of games comes in. WYSIWYGames is creating an English version of the French board game, Z First Impact, a cooperative game where players are trying to live in a city that’s had just about everything bad happen to it (meteors, zombies, aliens, mutants, the works). The project is up on Kickstarter now.

So, if you missed out on getting The Reckoners as part of the Kickstarter, don’t miss out on also getting it during the Late Pledge time.

CMON Launches Arcadia Quest: Riders Kickstarter

The lands surrounding the city of Arcadia have long been home to massive beasts, all living happily in the lush fields and forests. However, as the city has been attacked over and over, the surrounding lands have degenerated. Forced to move, these huge creatures have done just that… right into the middle of town! They’ve also been followed by Malkhor, a demigod hunter of legend. How will the Guilds deal with this new situation? That’s the story behind Arcadia Quest: Riders, the latest expansion for the PvPvE game. It’s up on Kickstarter now.

I know I go on and on about being a polar bear, but before that, and still deep down inside, I’m a greenskin. Being orcy is just who I am.

Days of Wonder Announces Ticket To Ride: New York

For many years, players have enjoyed Ticket to Ride. However, some feel that the game can take a bit too long. Collecting all those like-colored cards can take a while. Well, in a city like New York, there’s no time to sit around and be idle. You gotta go, go, go! So it makes sense that Ticket to Ride: New York, would streamline the game, making routes shorter, and thus shortening the overall game.

IDW Games Previews Invader Zim Food For Nickelodeon Splat Attack

It’s not a food fight if there’s not something to throw. Then it’s just a fight, and that’s not nearly the same sort of thing. In Nickelodeon Splat Attack, the cafeteria has broken out into the mother of all food fights, and everything’s going everywhere. In this preview, we get a look at the otherworldly food from Invader Zim. It’s… actually pretty tasty-looking.

Altiplano Now Available From Renegade Game Studio

In South America, there’s a high plain known as the Altiplano (which I just realized means just “high plain”…). It’s not the easiest life, but it certainly is one that is sustainable.
