Hard to imagine that a week ago at this time, we were elbow-deep in the CMON Expo. I love the Expo. It’s small enough that you don’t feel pressured to be running around to try and see everything, but still big enough that you’re never bored, going “what is there to do?” ...

You’d think you’d unlock the doors, but when zombies are around, you’re more likely to want to add more on. This goes extra-true if there’s an Abominalpha running around. Both of these things are the case over in the Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter campaign. Continuing to ...

Terror. Corruption. Redemption. Those are the themes of The Others, the new game from Guillotine Games and Studio McVey. We’ve been seeing some pretty sweet-looking models (one of which we did an unboxing for last year), but now it’s time to get some real information about the game. We ha...

We’re just underway here at Day 2 of the CMON Expo 2015. Yesterday was a blast. This place was buzzing with excitement. I must say, it’s by far the busiest Friday ever at the show. It’s great to see how it’s grown over the past years. Over on the TGN Facebook page, we’ve...

The number of people looking to fight against the zombie hordes in Zombicide: Black Plague keep rising. They have made it past the $2mil. mark on the Kickstarter campaign. To celebrate, they wanted to something big… very big. Horrendously, grotesquely, hugely big. That something is… the A...

It would seem as though the change of venue has caught the attention of gamers the world over. The launch of Zombicide: Black Plague quickly passed the funding goal (even with the hiccup in the server service that Kickstarter had right at the start) and has shot up well over $1 million in its first [...
