Welcome once again to Saturday. It’s been quite a morning over here. Rather busy for a Saturday. Biggest thing I’ve been working on is my decision to magnetize my Betrayal at Calth set (yes, this means it’s not 100% assembled yet. The games I’ve been playing of it have been using stand-in figs for much of it. It happens). The only problem comes from maneuvering small, fiddly pieces that, very literally, will move on their own. As such, I have glue all over my fingers. Thankfully, though, on at least one occasion, that’s helped me when my drill bit slipped and instead of giving me a scrape, it just gouged the glue that’d built up there. So, an asset hidden in a liability.
But that’s a story for when I post the review later today. At the moment, we’ve got other reviews/previews to deal with.
In this batch we have: Late French Napoleonic Infantry from Perry Miniatures and Warlord Games, Dark Moon, Clockwork Kingdom, Queen of the Hill, Dice Masters: The Amazing Spider-Man, Conquest at Kismet, Barony, Star Wars Armada Wave 2 Ships, Tides of Time, Pentoggle, Mars Attacks Miniatures Game, Risk: Star Wars Edition, Space Cadets: Away Missions, Bomb Squad, Escape the Nightmare, and T.I.M.E Stories.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
Whether you’re going out to a party or staying in, celebrate the holiday with some spooky-themed gaming. At least, that’d be my suggestion.
But how do you know what will and won’t be a good game? You read a review, of course! And we’ve got a whole new batch for you here today.
They include: Blood Rage, The King is Dead, D&D Miniatures White Dracolich Miniature,Battle Foam P.A.C.K 432 Molle Army Bag, Apocalypse Chaos, Conflict of Heroes – Awakening the Bear Second Edition, Brother Vinni Minis, The Grizzled, Pandemic Legacy, Bright Future, Nautilus Industry, Warband Board Game, Stealing Mona Lisa, The Batman Miniatures Game, Isle of Trains, and Sneaky Cards.
As we tend to do after Friday, we are now deposited here on Saturday. That means all day getting the chance to do some gaming. It also means we have our Review Roundup.
So without further ado…
This week we have stories on: Rory’s Story Cubes: Batman, King’s Pouch, Space Movers 2201, Warehouse 51, Neon City Rumble, Viceroy, Machina Arcana, 7 Wonders: Duel, Age of Tyrants Junkers and Viridians, The Minecraft Card Game, Battle Foam P.A.C.K 720 Molle Army Bag, Thunder Alley, Halo: Fleet Battles, and Starfighter.
It’s Saturday. That means reviews. Without further ado, let’s get to it.

And we find ourselves once more deposited here on the weekend. With any luck, yours includes gaming of some kind. Be it CCG, LCG, RPG, Minis, or something else (hey, someone out there might still be playing with POGs, you never know…), may the odds be in your favor.
As it is Saturday (most beloved of days), it’s time for another Review Roundup.

But at the moment, what we are doing is looking at some review from the past week.
This batch we have reviews/previews of: Broom Service, Dragonwood, Res Publica: 2230, Murano, Viceroy, Dropzone Commander, Game of Thrones LCG 2nd Edition, Systema Gaming Base-0 Storage Silo, and Warlord Games’ plastic M3A1 Half-Track.

Welcome to another Saturday, beautiful readers. We’re in a bit of the “calm before the storm.” The last weekend before Gen Con. I did some grocery shopping specifically for the trip (granola bars and cough drops to have in my satchel as I run all around Indy). Next will be making a packing list to make sure I’ve got everything I need while there. What sort of prep do you guys have going on?
Well, take a small break from all that packing and painting and whatever else you’re doing to enjoy some reviews we found during the week.
In this week’s batch, we’ve got reviews/previews of: Systema Gaming Base-0 HQ Unit, Police Precinct, Random Encounter, Roadkill Rivals, Fleet Wharfside, Specter Ops, Karma, The Voting Game, DeadFellas, Black Fleet, Fief: France 1429, Imperial Assault, Flea Market, and Gold Ahoy.
I, as I mentioned in my post yesterday, am more-than-likely playing 2nd edition D&D when this will be posted to the site.
Some friends I know have a long-running campaign and the DM is writing me in as an occasionally-recurring NPC. Not sure what my character will be (at time of typing), but it should be a good time.
Anyway, that’s as may be. Right now, it’s time for some game reviews.
In this batch, we have reviews/previews of: Boss Monster 2, Dark City 30 Corner Apartment Building and Gargoyles, Golem Arcana, The Great War, Apotheca, Lord of the Rings board game, Hocus, Paradox, Kaleidoscope, Infinity, Penny Press, Argonauts, Argent: The Consortium, and Star Wars Armada.
I pulled my car up to the line. The engine roared in my ears as I revved it, tipping my hat to the power under the hood. I saw the other racers’ knuckles whiten. This is it. After all the small time street races and car shows, I was finally one race away from being crowned king of these streets. I hope the track is in my favor and my rivals don’t have anything up their sleeves. The flag drops, I hit the gas. The race is close, but my car is built for speed and has great handling. As I crossed the finish line, I jumped up from my chair at the table, champion of Street Kings. Continue reading
Saturday night’s alright for gaming. Well, all of Saturday is alright for gaming, really. At the time this posts, there might or might not be a TPK happening. For my player’s sake, hopefully they’ll not just “charge at the enemy” as their go-to strategy. But… that’s PCs for you.
But that’s as may be. In the meantime, we’ve got a collection of review articles we’ve collected from the week.
This week’s batch of reviews/previews includes: Homeland: The Game, Monstrous, Welcome to the Dungeon, Dimension, Ether Wars, Immortal, Sultan’s Library, and Forbidden Stars.
Give yourself a pat on the back. You’ve made it to another Wednesday. We’re halfway to the weekend. If you have any mid-week gaming plans, we’d love to hear about it down in the comments. Over the next couple days, I’ll be prepping for the D&D game I’m running on Saturday. Last session, the group narrowly avoided TPK twice. So obviously, I need to up my game some.
As usual for the day, we’ve got some bite-sized stories we’ve collected together for you.
In this batch we’ve got: MidKnight Heroes Reaches Funding Goal and Previews Chibi Stretch Goal, Some more Installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Quick Reference Rulebook of Military History: Medieval Wargame available for testing, Blacksmith Miniatures release Mahé the Sailor, New Skull Masks Available from Tabletop-Art, Final week for Dark Sword Miniatures New Range Tony DiTerlizzi Masterworks Kickstarter, Ophidian Wars releases ECG with optional 3D printed minis, NeoExodus Campaign Setting Update for Pathfinder On Kickstarter, Mekawing Z updated to version 1.7, New Shock Tokens from Sally 4th, Epic New Token Line For Table Top And Role Playing Games, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm May Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, Hitech Miniatures New Webstore Opened, 28mm Crates Barrels and Casks from Castle Kits, New 15mm Sci-Fi Buildings from Gamecraft Miniatures, Infantry Bases for 6mm (1/285th) Figures from GameCraft Miniatures, New Rocket Platform Terrain from DerekPages, Manorhouse Workshop Update #32 – Modular Underground Project – How to paint walls and floors quickly, Demigods Evolution Funds in 1 Day, and Victrix Previews French Artillery.
Weeeeekeeeend! Hopefully you’re having a good one, even if you’re not at Origins or Lock & Load or the Board Game Challenge… like how I’m not at any of those. But it’s ok! We can have a good time gaming, anyway.
As usual for our Saturdays here (except for that weird mix-up last week), we’ve got our Review Roundup.
In this installment we have reviews/previews of: Pathfinder Battles: Gargantuan Shemhazian Demon, Princes of the Apocalypse, Mage Wars Companion App, Transylvania: Curses and Traitors, Pew Pew, Patchwork, Lanterns, and Sultan’s Library.
Hey everyone. Welcome to another Sunday Edition here on TGN.
Now, some of you might’ve noticed that we ran Sunday Snippets on Saturday and are doing the Review Roundup here on Sunday.
I’m… not entirely sure how that happened actually. I think all the necromantic energy from the Zombicide previews got to me and confused up my brain! All day yesterday felt like Sunday. It wasn’t until like 4-5pm that I was like, “Wait… it’s Saturday!” Anyway, we’ve got your reviews for you today.
This week we’ve got reviews/previews of: Pathfinder Battles: The Lost Coast Booster, Kromlech Orc Character Set, 12 Realms: Ancestors Legacy, K2, XenoShyft, Fief France 1429, Samurai Spirit, Deus, and Galactic Strike Force.
Get behind the wheel of your souped-up sportscar and go tearing around the streets in Street Kings, the new board game from Board to Death that’s up on Kickstarter now. But you don’t get the best stuff right away. You’ve gotta win some races, get some cash, and upgrade your car and crew a couple times first. And, of course, those beautiful cars don’t want to just sit in a garage between races. You can also send your car to get drooled over (just hopefully not on the chrome) at the local car shows.
Welcome once again to another TGN Saturday Edition where we round up all the reviews we’ve found over the week and put them into our Review Roundup (and around and around… and it comes out here).
This week we’ve got reviews of: Builders of Blankenburg, Robotech RPG Tactics, Brew Crafters, Diner, Kahuna, Lanterns, and 7 Wonders: Babel.
Hello again TGN Readers and welcome once more to Saturday. With any luck, you’re gaming. I know I am. We’ve got one of our guys in my D&D game moving to Ohio this summer, so we’re trying to get in as many sessions as we can before he goes.
As per usual, we’ve collected together various review articles we’ve found during the week and present them to you here now.
In this week’s articles, we’ve got reviews/previews of: Roll for the Galaxy, Gruff, Alchemists, Chaosmos, Elysium, Arboretum, Battle Sheep, Ystari, Spike, Patchwork, XenoShyft, Salvation Road, Tide of Iron: Next Wave, Stones of Fate, and Dungeon Crawler Fantasy RPG Miniatures Sets 1 to 3.
Welcome back to Saturday, dear friends. Hopefully you’re enjoying the day. I’ve been running around like crazy this morning, getting stuff done before I head to my friend’s place this evening for gaming fun. Once I’m done making this post, I need to bake cookies. But that’s as may be. I know you’re here for the reviews. So let’s get to them.
In this batch of reviews/previews, we’ve got: Warchimera Hammer Armoured Personnel Carrier, Lords & Ladies, Darkest Night, Hordes: High Command, Dogs of War, Race to the Rhine, Fishing Party, Machi Koro, Imperial Settlers, Cards Against Humanity, Witness, Tinku, Dragon Punch, and Mining Maniac.
Welcome, friends, to Saturday. Another week is over and it’s time to relax with some gaming. When this posts, I’ll be in the middle of a D&D session. The current DM and I are gonna tag out once more and I’m gonna take back over the campaign. Of course, that leaves my character I was playing. I’ve told the other DM I want him to go out in a blaze of glory. So we’ll see what happens.
Anyway, we’ve collected together a bunch of review articles we’ve come across and present them to you here now.
In this batch, we’ve got reviews/previews of: Wrath of Kings, AquaSphere, DC Comics Dice Masters, Dragon Punch, Cauldron, Battlebards, Elysium, Panamax,
I hope Saturday is treating you well and is currently, or soon will be, full of gaming goodness.
I’ve got a little hobby project I’m working on for an upcoming review article. Obviously, details on that will be made specific soon when the piece goes up on the site.
Anyway, it’s time again for another Review Roundup, where we take all the gaming and hobby reviews we found throughout the week and present them to you here.
In this batch, we’ve got reviews/previews of: Warlord Games’ Wrecked House terrain piece, Citadel Crusade Figure Case, Forbidden Desert, Commands & Colors: Napoleonics – The Spanish Army Expansion, Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Adventure Kit, Dreams of Dystopia, Gamboni, Barnyard Legions, Dogs of War, Cthulhu Wars, and DC Dice Masters.
If you’re reading this, you’ve made it to Saturday. You should reward yourself with some gaming with friends. You’ve earned it!
At the time this posts, I’ll be D&Ding it up with my gaming group. We managed to retrieve what is essentially “The Arc of the Bahamut” and are now trying to bring it back to its rightful owners (it’d been stolen by pirates, not the equivalent of Nazis). We were able to get it semi-easily because my Bard was able to get a local indigenous tribe to help us on the island we were on. High Charisma and Diplomacy for the win!
Anyway, we’ve got a couple reviews/previews for you this week.
In this group we’ve got: Hyperborea, Warmachine: High Command – Ultimate Weapons Expansion, Paperback, Pyramix, Just Desserts, and The Siblings Trouble.
Board to Death TV, longtime friend of and contributor to TGN, is more than just review videos. They’re also into creating games that everyone can enjoy. They’ve got the Kickstarter preview up for their next game, Street Kings. The game brings the thrilling world of underground street racing to your tabletop. The action is Fast. And I’m also told it’s rather Furious.
Check out the preview and give ’em some feedback before the launch.
From the campaign: Continue reading
It’s Saturday! Hope you’re getting in some gaming. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m currently getting my arm repeatedly jabbed and ink permanently applied to it. It’s fun!… Really!…
Actually, it’s not so bad, honestly.
And I’m sort of a wimp when it comes to needles. So if I can do it, you can, too (if you want).
But anyway, as usual, we’ve got our regular feature of collecting all the review articles we found all week and have them here for you now.
Included this week are reviews/previews of: Eggs and Empires, Meteor, Summoners Wars Aliiances Master Set, Dreamforge Valkir Assault Troopers, D&D Miniatures Ancient Silver Dragon, New Mars Attacks Terrain Sprues, March of the Ants, Bill Shakespeare Is Dead, Lords and Ladies, Find my Monsters, and Ion.
Saturday night’s alright for fighting… your enemies on the tabletops around the world!
Hopefully you’re doing that, anyway.
I’ve got various whatnots I’m working on at home, one of which is spring cleaning. Joy of joys. But hey, it means next weekend I can have a game day here and not worry about people thinking that an actual bear lives in this place.
Anyway, until then, we’ve got our regular series of collecting up all the reviews we found over the past week and presenting them to you.
This week’s reviews/previews include: Cog ‘O’ Two Paint and Hobby Station, D&D Miniatures: Elemental Evil Booster, Fallen by Watchtower Games, Five Points: Gangs Of New York By Mayfair Games, Sandcastles Kickstarter, Lost Cities Card Game, Dungeon Dwellers, War of Kings, Super Fantasy Rumble, Black & White, Animal Upon Animal, Tide of Iron, Legion of Honor, and Star Wars Armada.
Welcome to another Saturday. This week went by quick (at least for me). I hope you’ve been enjoying the Adepticon photos we’ve been posting. Be sure to check out the ones of the Desert Hydra. Makes me almost wish I played Skorne. I might get one of those just to paint up.
Anyway, as is custom here on TGN, we’ve collected the review articles from the week and have them here in one place for you here today.

We hope your week has gone by well. It’s been a busy one over here. Lots of news and lots of work on the next issue of Ravage US. However, we have had time to collect our regular group of reviews for you to look over.
This time we have reviews/previews of: D&D Miniatures: Tyranny of Dragons Booster, Keyflower: the Farmers Expansion, Sentinel Tactics, Hitman Holiday, Fleet Commander: Nimitz, The Robotic Age RPG, Mutiny, Grifter: A Game of Cons, and Bruges.
It’s another Saturday. Hopefully you’ve got something fun going on.

We’ve got reviews/previews of: Chaos & Alchemy, Fields of Arle, High Command – Escalating Conflict, Sellswords, War Stories, Trains: Rising Sun, Kalypto, 7 sins, Hitman Holiday, Amber Route, Twisting Catacombs Dungeon Scenery, M4 Sherman from Warlord Games/Italeri, Trikerion: Legends of Illusion, Games Workshop’s Wood Elf Treeman, Sisters of the Thorn, Dark Eldar Voidraven Bomber, and the Zen Terrain Fast Food Stall.
We’ve got another Saturday here on TGN and that means a collection of the review stories we found throughout the week. What are others saying about the games you’re interested in playing? Read on to find out.
This time we’ve got reviews (and a couple previews) for games/models like: Rivet Wars, Eight Minute Empire, Kromlech’s Orc Warchief, Witness, new Nachtjager releases for Flames of War, Scoville, Wizard Dodgeball, San Juan (the game, not the location. Though one is based on the other), Xia: Legends of a Drift System, Out of Dodge, Hoyuk, the 5th Edition Monster Manual, Amerigo, and King of New York.
That should keep you busy for a while.
It’s another Saturday and so that means it’s time for another Review Round-Up.
We’ve got reviews for Ares Games’ The Battle of Five Armies, Red7 from Asmadi Games, Psycho Therapist, Gothic Invasion, and Mafia Casino.
Along with those, there are a couple “favorites of 2014” and a Top 10 or two to check out.
As usual, here’s the reviews we found during the week.
There’s quite a few of them. We’ve got a pair of reviews for Blurble, a look at Dice Crawl from SoulJar Games, an Imperial Assault unboxing, a look at Rivet Wars, a review of the Malifaux terrain by PlastCraft, and more! Check it out.
Board to Death gives us their thoughts on Conquest of Orion, from Escape Velocity Games, in their latest video review.
From the post:
ORION – yours to conquer. Once just a distant constellation, Orion is now being explored and colonized. Will you lead your alliance to victory or suffer defeat at the hands of your enemies?
Conquest of Orion is a team-based card game played over several rounds of conflicts. For each conflict, players play a single card and then evaluate the winner. However, technologies and leaders have special abilities that will influence the outcome of each conflict. Through careful card play and strategy, players will work with their partner to lead their alliance to glory!
Board to Death takes a look at the newest Dice Masters set, Uncanny X-Men, in this review article.
From the post:
Marvel Dice Masters: Uncanny X-Men is a collectible dice-building tabletop game designed by Quarriors! creators Michael Elliott and Eric M. Lang.
Board To Death takes a look at 12 Realms from Mage Company in this review article.
From the post:
12 Realms is a fast, lighthearted cooperative miniature game for 1 to 6 players. All players must band together to stop the Dark Lords’ overwhelming hordes from pillaging the 12 Realms. Individual invaders can be defeated by using each hero’s different talents, but to vanquish the Dark Lords you must claim a powerful artifact.
Board to Death takes a look at Zeppelin Attack from Evil Hat Productions in this video review.
From the post:
Take over the world in Zeppelin Attack, a deck building game set in the world of Evil Hat Productions’ Spirit of the Century. You play villainous masterminds bent on world domination. To win, you must build a powerful deck of Zeppelin cards, weapons, defenses and operatives, and then use these to fight your opponent’s Zeppelins. The player who gets the most points from winning battles and acquiring valuable cards will win the game. There’s only room for one ultimate criminal overlord: you. Bring your zeppelins.
Board to Death posted up a video review of the In the City: Origins card game.
I’d think they’d have The Eagles in the background for the whole video, but that didn’t happen.
From the post:
In the drafting-style game In the City: Origins for 2-5 players. Each player starts with a leader card (different every game 20 in all in the base set) and each turn they recruit a person from the city square. This gets them victory points, influence to recruit bigger and better people, the ability to manipulate the cards you are recruiting, and the ability to interfere with you opponents. The game is over when 2 out of the 7 columns in the city square are empty. At the end of the game, the victory points are totaled and the winner is the player with the most.
