It’s the last day of November. We’re 11/12s of the way through the year. We just might make it after all.
Actually, I’m looking forward to this weekend. It should be a good time, as they generally are. I mean, weekend, right!?
But, before we get there, we’ve got some more days to get through. To help, we should power up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: Nomad Games adds Wizards and Tricksters to Steam Early Access of Smash Up!, Introducing Boxwood Genius Dice, Digital Edition of Colt Express Now Available, New Releases Available to Order From Victoria Miniatures, WarSeer Forum Relaunches Tomorrow, New Chaos Templates From Pyrkol, Old World Leather Gaming Mats for RPG Metal Dice Rolling Up On Kickstarter, Fantasy Football teams available at Flatminis as 2D plastic miniatures, New Release: Kromlech Battle Rulers, New Statuesque Fine & Pulp Scale Female Heads – Bald on sale, Special Artizan Service Miniatures Presents: Contractor On Kickstarter, Yet More Victoria Miniatures Releases, New Release: Kromlech Wound Markers, and Ouroboros Tales 54mm Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter.

Nomad Games adds Wizards and Tricksters to Steam Early Access of Smash Up!

Spells and trickery are making their way into Smash Up this week. So join us as we celebrate the arrival of Wizards, Tricksters, and the ability to invite your friends to the game!

Nothing is more fun than interrupting your opponent with some spells. The Wizards bring in a powerful force with magic and manipulation that will leave your opponent scratching their head in confusion.

If that is not bad enough, then leave your deck in the hands of the ultimate trouble makers. Gnomes, Leprechauns, and Gremlins are the ultimate ally against anyone. Pure chaos follows their every play so don’t feel bad if you let out a giggle each time!

Both of these factions now join our ranks so feel free to Smash them up with some fun combinations. Maybe the Tricksters manipulate while the Dinosaurs chomp down on opponents? Perhaps the Wizards and Robots have struck a deal?

The latest update includes the option for public and private online game creation along with the ability to invite friends to your game!

It is all in good fun when it comes to this fast growing digital card game.

Join us on Steam and check out our new decks!

We look forward to seeing you online!

Introducing Boxwood Genius Dice

Dice have been around for thousands of years, but sculptor and woodworker William Manke found room for innovation. Affectionately known as “genius dice,” his original design represents the face value with the number of wood segments shown. Segments are clearly distinguishable because of the color variations in the hardwoods used – maple, cherry and walnut. The configuration of values is the same as traditional dice, so they may be used for any dice-based game. Manke has also developed an original game called “three trees” based on the wood types used.

Exploring the idea of making dice using wood colors was a complex three-dimensional puzzle. “One, two and three were easy. Figuring out how to make four, five and six work was more difficult”.

Manke crafts the dice by hand-selecting walnut, maple and cherry boards for depth of color. He cuts and measures segments by hand using precision woodworking tools. Dice are individually assembled and sanded, then boxed in a bed of their own shavings.

Manke makes creative wooden games and toys under his maker brand Boxwood Pinball – so named because the first project was a fully-articulated wooden pinball machine. “I love seeing games bring generations together,” says Manke. “These games are works of art as beautiful to look at as they are fun to play.”

Ouroboros Tales 54mm Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter

We are proud to present the first two miniatures from our Ouroboros Tales range, the Shaman and the Brave. These two 54mm scale miniatures were sculpted by the very talented Denis Soul and are cast in high quality resin by the renowed Grx Créations.

Ouroboros Miniatures is a relatively new company specialising in high quality large scale resin miniatures for painters and collectors. We have been preparing several ranges for quite some time now and could really use your help to bring some of these onto the market.

Producing high quality large scale resin miniatures like the Shaman and the Brave is quite expensive. This Kickstarter, with your help, makes sure we can release them sooner than if we would have done so through the regular channels!
