Sure, they say it’s good to be the king. But you know what’s better? Being the god. What’s so fun about being a god? Well, how about when you literally hurl monsters down from the heavens to punish those puny mortals who didn’t quite burn your favorite incense during worship y...

It seems you all have been just eating up the Rising Sun previews we’ve had. And I can’t blame you. I’m really looking forward for this one, too. Well, we’ve seen a lot of miniatures, but what about gameplay? CMON has posted up a short interview with Eric Lang were they get a ...

With every new preview of the minis coming out in Rising Sun, I know I’m getting a bit more excited to see the final game. This game looks like it’s going to be pushing the boundaries of what single-piece figures in a board game can look like. Here’s another couple previews....

It might be winter, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things that go “bump” in the night you should be concerned about. The February releases for Dark Age are up and they feature a lot of the Dargyri Shadow Caste. But if your response to spiders is “Kill it with fire!&#...

Well, the latest CMON Kickstarter has come to an end. Rise of Moloch did rather well, getting $1.17mil. But if you’re not a fan of steampunk stuff, maybe that wasn’t the game for you. Well, then you’ll want to perhaps check out the next game hitting Kickstarter for the company. Thos...

The time has come. The end is nigh! Time is running short! The end of the Kickstarter campaign for The World of SMOG: Rise of Moloch is upon us! Or, it will be in the next 24 hours (from time of posting, anyway). As is usual for a CMON Kickstarter campaign, they’re way over their […]...

One of the next games to be coming from CMON was one that got a lot of hype when it was announced last year at Gen Con (for good reason, if you ask me, since I got to take a look at it while at the show). Well, the previews are really starting to roll […]...

The world is overcome by other-dimensional entities looking to influence everyone with their corrupt influences. Only the members of F.A.I.T.H. can stand in their way and keep humanity safe. But resources are stretched thin and the Alpha Teams are needed one place while Beta teams take on other issue...

It’s good to be the king. That is, unless you’ve just died. Then, maybe it’s not so great (though it was probably good while it lasted). The King of the Jungle has died. That means it’s time to find a new one. And when you’re the leader of all the animals, you’ve g...

The streets of London are choked with thick fog and smoke from the factories. People go about their everyday lives. The undead are used as a labor force, putting many out of a job. Strange creatures, tainted by the runoff from the factories, lurk the alleyways. In all of it, the Cult looks to bring [...

Being firmly into winter (despite what the thermometer says here in Atlanta), that means we’ve got some rather short days going on. Sure, it’s around a month since the solstice, but the days are still pretty short. As such, there’s plenty of shadows within which you can lurk. Also r...

The Rise of Moloch Kickstarter will be getting underway here in just under two weeks. I’m a firm believer in being an informed customer. So reading up on a game and seeing all you can about how it will work is important to me. It’s also important to CMON, as they have a pair of […]...

CMON is known for their miniatures in their games. I mean, the M stands for “Mini.” In The World of Smog: Rise of Moloch, the game will come with plenty of miniatures. But how do you know they’re going to be the C (that is to say, “Cool”)? Well, you get a preview of them...

With industry comes pollution. There’s always byproducts created when you burn something, and the furnaces and power plants in the industrial sections of London were notorious for burning whatever they could find to run their machines. This also created horrible liquid runoff from the various b...

In The World of Smog: Rise of Moloch, the Gentlemen of the Unicorn Club are fighting against the nefarious Cult. Members of that shadowy organization are looking to overthrow the British government and bring about the return of the ancient god, Moloch, to the world. That must be stopped at all costs ...

Pretty much everyone’s got “that one weird house” on your block. Strange noises at weird hours. Interesting yard artwork. Parties that spring up out of nowhere and disappear just as quickly. Otherworldly elder-things hanging out in the yard. Ok, maybe not that last one. But the hous...

In the world of Smog, zombies have become a regular part of life. They’re not the rampaging hordes you usually see in horror movies (well, most of the time they’re not, but we’ll get to that). Instead, they’re a cheap and readily-available labor source. The factories around Lo...

In a steampunk Victorian England, dark forces are at work. The crown is not safe, as an evil cult looks to bring the nefarious Moloch into the world. The only thing standing against these dark forces are the gentlemen of the Unicorn Club. But who will eventually control the dark, rainy, smog-filled s...
