Get a look at this huge beast in this preview.

New Tribe Added to HATE Kickstarter

In the post-apocalyptic world of HATE, certain things that were once familiar have been twisted and deformed. The very plants that sustained the majority of life on the land became unrecognizable, with tendrils and grasping vines looking to hunt out prey.

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Just about all of us have heard that in some form or another. The Um’Cal tribe feels that way in HATE, the upcoming game from CMON.

CMON Previews Um’Rak For HATE

Well, the world’s come to an end. Damnit, Todd! How you managed to turn a taxi service into a catalyst for Armageddon I’ll never now, but here we are.

CMON Partners with Steve Jackson Games to Make Munchkin Board Games

Just about all of us have played some version of Munchkin in our time as gamers. It’s a fun, little card game from Steve Jackson that takes the usual tropes of dungeon delving (or going into space, or pirates, or faeries, or a hundred other things it’s spun off into) and turns them on their ear, many sets lovingly drawn by famed artist John Kovalic. Well, soon, that fun, little card game is going to be a board game series from CMON. Steve Jackson and CMON are partnering up to create a new line of games based on the beloved card game.
