The storming of the beaches at Normandy. It’s arguably one of the most important days in world history. Certainly, the entire outcome of WWII could be in question if that invasion hadn’t gone the way it did. As such, every aspect of it has been picked over time and again, both by experts and those that are amateur historians. Gamers also love to pour over every detail, looking at “what if” scenarios. You can do that sort of thing with Normandy: The Beginning of the End, a new tactical war game that’s part of the War Storm Series of games. It’s up on Kickstarter now.
We’re once more halfway through the week. So far, it’s been a pretty standard week. After the chaos of the week before, I’m not complaining about that at all. I’m also not complaining about the temperatures we’re supposed to get to today here in Atlanta. I might just open the windows when I get home. But that’s as may be. Right now, it’s time to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Final Days for Sector 6 on Kickstarter, Acheson Releases More Dungeon Worlds Part 2 Figures, Special Artizan Service Miniatures Presents: F.U.B.A.R 28mm WW2 Rangers Kickstarter, Life of the Party Comic Up On Kickstarter, 4th Canadian Mechanised Brigade Group KickOFF, New Bedlam Release from Kromlech, Win this pre-Release Combot kit, Flatminis releases a new wave of 2D heroes, and Mighty Meeples: DC Comics Series 1 Now Available.
Life in prison is rough. That’s the situation here today on Earth. In the space-prison of Obliti, it’s much, much worse. Due to budget cuts (not a lot of people relish the idea of spending more money on the planet’s worst criminals), food, clothing, and even air are becoming scarce. If an inmate wants to make it to see the next day, they’ll need to be able to get the oxygen required to live. Problem is, there’s only so much to go around and the labyrinthine Sector 6 is always changing. That’s the story behind Sector 6, a new board game by Draco Ideas up on Kickstarter now.
There’s quite a lot of people out there that speak Spanish. Living in a major US city, I hear it all the time. However, I’m unable to speak it, myself (I’m lame like that). So, if I wanted to play 2GM Tactics Wargame by Draco Ideas, I’d be out of luck, currently. That will all change, though, if they succeed in their Kickstarter campaign to bring the game to an English-speaking audience.
Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam.
For those of you (like me) who don’t speak Latin, “Furthermore, I consider that Carthage must be destroyed.”
Everyone knows that Rome and Carthage weren’t exactly friends. In fact… they tended to go to war with one-another… a lot… over hundreds of years. Now Draco Ideas is bringing that to your tabletop with Onus: Rome Vs. Carthage 2nd edition that’s upon Kickstarter now.
The week is progressing along. The turbulence of Monday starting to calm slightly on Tuesday and hopefully continuing into today. Let’s not jinx it by being overconfident, though. There’s plenty of week left to go.
In the meantime, Wednesday means posting a collection of bite-sized stories.
In today’s batch of snippets we have: New Warthrone approved army list: Orcs & Goblins from Warhammer, Onus! Rome vs. Carthage English Edition Coming to Kickstarter, Foxy and her gang are re-released at Statuesque Miniatures, Secrets of the Lost Tomb: The Elite Missions over 900% Funded, New 15mm Normans from Baueda added to Indiegogo, Two New Releases From Hitech Miniatures, Taranis Tracked Tanks by Bob Naismith offers now live from The Ion Age, New Infinity Limited Edition Unit Markers from Warsenal, and 11 Days Left in Cabals Kickstarter.
