I’m an unabashed fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I put it in the same league as something like Animaniacs and Tiny Toons, where, sure, I may not be the real target audience, but I feel it’s a quality cartoon product that has enough references to keep me interested (they dress up as [&hell...

Well, it’s been almost a week. So, I’m sure all of you are all extremely tired of 40k already and want to play something else… I’m kidding. But if that actually is the case, and you want to play some The Hobbit, well, Forge World has some new figures you can order for the game...

Steve Jackson Games has announced a new version of Munchkin will be making its way to Walgreens stores in the near future. This one’s aimed at a slightly younger audience (though no version of Munchkin, that I know of, is too adult in nature). This one’s called Munchkin Spell Skool....

We’re getting closer to that weekend. Just another day and a half and we’ll be there. Hopefully, you’ve got some gaming plans lined up. I’ve got some partial ones, myself. We’ll see how it goes. But if you are going to be gaming, you should have a good-looking gaming tab...

Tercio Creativo, arguably, has some of the best-looking models out there. They’re certainly near the top, at least, and they’re giving us a look at some greens of figures they’re working on. This includes Bruxa Teurgia, the first figure from a new faction for their game....

Usually, goblins are those things the DM throws at us when we’re level 1-3 in order to get the PCs some extra XP for when the “real” adventure starts up. But in Dark Hold, the goblins are the PCs. And Rebel Minis has released a new adventure for their game series. It’s Lair of...

I do so love a campaign system for games. I’ve never been too hot on tournaments. Too much pressure all at once. But a nice campaign, over the course of a couple weeks or months, spreads all of that out and is just more enjoyable, in my experience. Well, Mantic is giving players the tools [&hel...

Wave 36 is apparently going to be bringing something new to Bushido from GCT Studios. What is it? I don’t know. I tried asking Odin but he was pretty tight-lipped on the whole thing. Cheeky bastard. I know he’s holding out on me. For now, we’ve just got this little art preview to go...

Last weekend, I got to watch my first full game of Runewars. It’s an interesting-looking game. The two players were playing a 200 point army, which is apparently a “standard size.” Though, since both really just had a couple starter-boxes to go with, it was kind of a stretch to get ...

Players only have to worry about their own character, or maybe just a couple characters. But the GM/DM needs to deal with the entire rest of the planet… and the planes… and beyond! It’s quite a tall task. Thankfully, there’s resources to help with that. If you need an NPC for ...

Having pre-made adventures can really speed up the time needed to get your game on the table. Having the adventure be system-agnostic means that no matter what game you’re playing, you can drop the adventure in and get going. Well, that’s what we’ve got with the Schleyscapes Fantasy...

You’ve often heard me talk about how it’s always good for a DM/GM to have access to pre-made items to make running their games go more smoothly and so they don’t have to create everything for their game from whole cloth. Well, the One Shot Compendium is just such a thing. It’s...

Sometimes you want to just jump into a whole army at once. None of this, “just get a single unit and see how it goes” sort of thing. You jump in, head-first into the deep end. Well, that’s what you can do with the Troglodytes faction for Godslayer, as Megalith Games is running a spe...
