Bloodborne


This is a pretty big release month for CMON. They've got two core games and two expansions, split up between some of their more popular games. There's the latest version of Zombicide in the form of Green Horde. There's also the Rise of Moloch core box. The expansions are for Lorenzo il Magnifico, as well as Bloodborne: The Card Game.
The Bloodborne card game takes players into a dark and scary world where death more-than-likely awaits you just around the corner with big, pointy teeth! You thought it was tough enough, but it's about to get harder in The Hunter's Nightmare expansion. We got a look at this upcoming set at a Media Event hosted by CMON.
Well, I did my Thanksgiving grocery shopping. It's... well, I'm having 2 Thanksgivings, so there's that. Turkeys, dressing, potatoes, sweet potatoes, stuff to make glazed carrots, rolls (from scratch), and a couple pumpkin pies. Because, you know, if anything's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

But that's for Thursday and Friday. For right now, we've got reviews. So let's get to it.

Today we have: Robots Love Ice Cream, Acquire, Bloodborne: The Card Game, The Arrival, Trick of the Rails, Great Western Trail, 7 Wonders Duel: Pantheon, Inis, Fabled Fruit, Ticket to Ride: Rails & Sails, CO-OP: The Co-op Card Game, Star Trek: Ascendancy, Terraforming Mars, Hit Z Road, Hocus, Ta-Da!, Legends Untold, and Ominoes.

Bloodborne is one of the more-popular video games of the last few years. The challenge comes from basically making it as far as you can before you're brutally killed in-game. It's not so much a question of if you'll die, but just how far you get before you die. Well, that dark dungeon crawl experience will be making its way to your tabletops at the end of this week, as the Bloodborne Card Game will be available this Friday.
It's time for the final panel here at the CMON Expo. We've had our look at Wrath of Kings and Dark Age. We've had our look at Massive Darkness. Now we sit down for a nice, quiet, fireside chat with game developer Eric Lang (he's Canadian).
Well, it's sort of an announcement. At GAMA, lots of various shots here and there of products were posted up. Eric Lang, designer of such games like Quarriors, Blood Rage, and Kaosball, posted up one showing off a new game box.
