Zeus has called together various gods and they’re having themselves a party. The ambrosia starts kicking in, and soon, they’re arguing over what mythical creatures would win in a flying race. Well, being divine in nature, the gods are able to figure this out directly by setting up a track and calling these creatures to fly for their amusement. Of course, no race is quite exciting enough without a little betting going on. That’s the story behind Divinity Derby, a new racing board game from Ares Games. They’ve sent me a copy to check out and let you know about how it works.
So get your $2 bet ready, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s Divinity Derby.
Big shows are a great place to release new games, as well as preview upcoming projects. Ares Games is taking those opportunities at Origins in a couple weeks. They’ll be having the official launch of Sword & Sorcery, as well as giving attendees a chance to play several new games that’ll be available later this year.
Who’s faster? A dragon? A gryphon? A lamasu? A harpy? A pegasus? It’s the sort of question that’s been debated for thousands of years. Now, Ares Games is putting it to the test with Divinity Derby, their new racing board game that’s up now on Kickstarter.
We’re already to Wednesday. That’s what happens when you’ve got a day off at the start of the week.
This’ll be my last day here in the old office. We’re moving up the street a couple miles to a new building. Got a couple days at home, though, as they work to finish up some last details on the new place (like… internet) and get all the furniture and such in place. But in the meantime, let’s stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Ares Games Announces Divinity Derby Kickstarter, New 6mm American Civil War Paper Armies From Grand Manoeuvre, New Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, Squarriors: The Card Game Coming To Kickstarter, Lead Adventure Miniatures Launches Dwarven Gold Fever, and Badass Riders Coming To Kickstarter.
