It’s early dawn here at Gen Con Day 2. I… wish I could tell you what happened to Day 1. I swear it was just here a minute ago. At least, that’s how it feels. I can tell you that the hall is busy. But what would you expect from a show that’s sold out? […]...

As I’ve said numerous times over the past couple weeks, Gen Con is coming. Like… tomorrow. There’s going to be, oh, about a bajillion things going on, so it’s best to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. Plus, since we didn’t get it on Monday (and there’s a ...

Even the dead hate to simply walk their way into battle. And what’s a horse to do after it’s been put out to pasture and, well… passed? Their glory days can be relived during the nightmare life of an undead cavalry horse. That’s just what will be galloping their way to Runewar...

I have a degree in history. I made quite a study of various ancient civilizations, as well as saw just the general flow of history. Of course, with the knowledge of what has happened, it’s easy to look back and go, “Man… I sooo would’ve done that differently!” Well, that...

Just because something has been broken doesn’t mean it’s not worth something. There’s a lot of symbolism, especially in historic cities. Such is the case with Mecatol City. It had been the capital of the Lazax Empire. Now it’s a blasted, shelled-out husk of what it once was. B...

Time and again I have lauded the efforts of gaming companies to let the public know about their products through the free posting of rules online. In this case, Fantasy Flight Games is getting the praise, as they have posted the rulebook for Rise of the Empire, the first big expansion box for Star Wa...

In the fantasy battles all across Terrinoth, you might not want your opponent, with their swords and spears, to get all that close to you. Those things can hurt! As such, it’s not a bad idea to reach out and attack at a distance. That’s what the Heavy Crossbowmen are here to do, and they&...

While the Elves are usually known for their prowess with the bow and arrow, those ranged weapons might not always be the best during a fight, especially if things get up close and personal. Thankfully, many elves are also proficient with swords, such as the Darnati Warriors. We get a preview of their...

Runebound is a competitive game. While all the players want to avoid a defeat via the scenario overwhelming them all, it’s still every hero for themselves. But many people these days like cooperative games. It lets everyone be on the same team and you win or lose together as a group. Also, some...

Like a phoenix, Legend of the Five Rings will be experiencing a rebirth in just a couple weeks at Gen Con. Though, y’know, since it’s a big gaming convention, hopefully fire won’t be involved (anyone remember that fire scare from all those years ago? That was like my 2nd show). But ...

Imperial Assault can be played two ways. You can just get your forces together and battle against your opponent as a skirmish game, or you can have more of a board-game feel and go with the Campaign Mode. Well, if you choose to go the latter, you’ll be excited to know that a new campaign [&hell...

I remember first encountering the Star Viper while playing Shadows of the Empire on my N64. Heck, I recently re-found my console and game and might just pop that in this evening. I’ve also fought against them in the X-Wing Miniatures Game. In that case, Scum & Villainy players should take ...

You know, there’s a big difference when previewing items. By that, I mean, if some company were to show you 1/10 of a new figure they were working on, you’d get, like, a kneecap or something. If someone were previewing their new rules set, but only showed you 1/10 of it, you might get a [...

It’s 1888, and the torso of a woman is found at a construction sight. Later, it’s matched to an arm that’d been found. Later on, a leg is found. Who could’ve done such a horrible thing? That’s what the players will have to figure out in Whitehall Mystery, a new standalon...

When you’re playing an RPG, you want the rules to be present, but not get in the way of the game. And with all the options that a player’s character can have, it can be really easy to forget how something works, or forget you have some special bonus at all. Thankfully, there’s resou...
