Friday Snippets

Well, we finally made it to Friday. Seemed to take its dear, sweet time. I’m certainly ready for the weekend. It’s Board Game Day up at the library tomorrow. I’m gonna try and stop by and see what’s shakin’. I’m also going to be hitting F5 on the FedEx tracking site today as I wait for my package to be delivered. Because that’s just how things are. So, while I try and make sure I don’t totally break my keyboard, let’s get to some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Kraken Dice Weekend St. Patrick’s Sale Happening Now, New Escher Weapon Sets Available to Order From Forge World, and Free Gipsy Danger added to Pacific Rim Extinction.

New Escher Weapon Sets Available to Order From Forge World

House Escher is perhaps the most strikingly different of all the Clan Houses of Necromunda. Like all the Houses it is controlled by a ruling family, and its political life and institutions are dominated by close relatives or families in service. However, unlike the other Houses which have reasonably balanced populations, that of the Escher is made up almost entirely of women.

Free Gipsy Danger added to Pacific Rim Extinction

All backers who pledged at either of the Extinction (£65) pledge levels will now receive the newly unveiled Gipsy Danger expansion, at no extra cost.

That’s right, all backers at the £65 level will be getting Gipsy Danger to deploy into battle against the Kaiju! The Gipsy Danger expansion comes with ranger cards, upgrades, charge/ammo markers, and of course Gipsy Danger’s Conn-Pod profile sheet.

This machine is seriously impressive.
Gipsy Danger is a true Jaeger legend, and a shining beacon of humanity’s strength and courage in the face of insurmountable danger. A veteran fighter, Gipsy Danger’s name has been etched into history for her heroic actions during the Kaiju Wars.

Gipsy Danger uses highly-effective I-19 Plasmacasters that cauterize wounds on impact, preventing the spread of dangerous Kaiju Blue in battle. Gipsy Danger can also deploy a GD6 Chain Sword to quickly adapt in combat when engaging in close quarters.

Gipsy Danger is the first expansion featuring content from the original Pacific Rim movie. We hope you’ll make great use of her chain sword to tear up some Kaiju! Only as a last resort, of course.
