    Fantasy Flight Games has released their Fly Casual sourcebook for the Star Wars RPG. Now you can be the “cool one” in your gaming group, playing the sly smuggler, just trying to get some credits while the big, Imperial government is trying to keep you down. Yes, now you can be the character that’s thrilled by free trade legislation and tariffs and port quotas!
    Or just shoot things and fly a cool ship.

    Guillotine Games has a bunch more information and preview photos of their upcoming game, Blood Rage, to show off. The game is part resource management, part worker placement, part battle strategy, and all a good time had by all (I know. I’ve played it). Players are in charge of their own viking clan and trying to gain the most glory before the world ends, and then ends again, and ends some more times just for good measure.
    Game design is by Eric Lang, with miniatures created by Studio McVey.

There’s quite a lot of pieces, from multiple styles of houses, to temples and shrines, two types of bridges, walls and gates, and, of course, a Torii gate, too.

    Guillotine Games has posted an announcement about the next board game project they’re going to be bringing to Kickstarter. This time it’s Blood Rage, a viking-themed board game where your clan looks to gain the most influence before the world ends… and then it ends again… and then it ends a few more times.
    I’ve had a chance to play an early prototype of the game and am really looking forward to it. It’s some strategy with some resource management with some worker placement all thrown into one.
    Expect the game to be on Kickstarter on March 2nd.
