We’ve made it into September, but you’ll want to stay awake for this one. (do you kids even get that reference or has music forgotten that one?) The latest Dark Age releases are now available over in the CMON webshop. These continue with making some of the Gen Con pre-releases now availab...

One of the biggest conventions of the season is coming up. Dragon*Con basically takes over downtown Atlanta during Labor Day Weekend. And seeing as it’s just a couple exits south of here, of course CMON will be going. I mean, how can you have “Nerd Mardi Gras” without some quality g...

While the 2015 convention season may be ending soon, people are working hard on the start of 2016. It may not feel like it, but May isn’t really all that far away… Ok, so it’s like 8.5 months away, but still! It’ll be here before you know it. Plus, shows take a lot of prep [&h...

While, for a lot of people, the convention may seem to end at Gen Con, that’s really not the case. There’s still shows after that. One of them is the NOVA Open, held in Arlington, VA. Many different gaming companies will be there holding events. CoolMiniOrNot is one of them. They’ve...

Back again here on a Tuesday. We’re most of the way through (if you’re over here on the East Coast such as I am) and hopefully gaining some speed towards the end of the day. To help you get there, how about some podcasts to listen to? Seems like a good idea. Let’s get going, [&helli...

Dark Age made quite a showing at Gen Con a couple weeks ago. The gallery of early releases I posted was one of my most-viewed during the event. Those of you that were at the show had a chance to pick these up. But for the rest of you (or any that weren’t able to […]...

Saturday was everything one would expect from Gen Con. The hallways were certainly filled with gamers, geeks, and nerds of all type. All sorts of awesome things were happening. Too many to just have still photos cover it all. Thankfully, there’s video, and CMON has a Day 3 video wrap-up they...

The CMON booth was once again a big hive of activity. The World of Smog: On Her Majesty’s Service and The Grizzled joined Blood Rage from the day before as sell-outs at the show. People are simply gobbling up these games like crazy. (personal note: I love The Grizzled. I tried it out at CMON [&...

Gen Con is fully underway now. The first day went by in a flash. The energy in the air was palpable. Everyone I’ve talked to agrees that this year is much busier than last. When the doors open, there’s a huge rush as all the eager gamers head to the various booths in order to […]...

Wow! Gen Con got off to quite a start this morning! Seemed no sooner than I was awake than I was down at the hall looking over some things when Boom! The doors were opened! It was quite a mad rush in the hall. I don’t know actual numbers, but several people I talked with […]...

The world of Dark Age is ever-changing and evolving. Characters grow and adapt as the storyline continues on. Well, obviously such a thing would happen in the fluff, but it also happens in the rules for miniatures. New versions come out that show how the characters have progressed. St. Joan is one su...

The other day we showed you a crop of new Dark Age minis. Well, that wasn’t the only set that CMON has been working on. The forces of St. John are also getting a bit of a revamp, as well as some new figures. And I know the mechanical dragon was pretty cool, but the […]...

CMON is showing off some new sculpts for Dark Age, specifically St. Mark on his mechanical dragon as well as a look at the new Shade sculpts they’ve been working on. I need to look into getting a mechanical dragon to ride to work on. Sure, you’re open to the elements and such, and it [&he...

Strange to think that Gen Con is just a touch over 2 weeks away. It’s going to be here before you even realize it. If you’re prepping for any of the events, you are hopefully well into it by now. If not, you’d better get a move on. One event you may be looking to […]...

The end is nigh! The Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter will end in just 24 hours (that’s 8pm, Eastern, on July 6th, for those of you that see this not immediately at posting time). As expected, the total just keeps on rising, having crossed over $3 million and still going. There’s bunch...

The end is near! … Really, there’s only 3 days left in the Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter. But CMON and Guillotine Games aren’t just sitting back, resting. Oh no, it’s a sprint to the end, as they give it their all, adding even more to the campaign. This time around it...

There’s less than a week left in the Zombicide: Black Plague Kickstarter campaign. That generally means that we’re about to see a big ramp up in backers and pledges, which means more unlocks and add-ons are coming. But that’s not to say that there’s been no action in the past ...

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...

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...
