Fantasy Flight Previews AT-ST, T-47 For Star Wars: Legion

Along with the lightsabers and the star ships, the various vehicles of the Star Wars universe are just as iconic. The Battle of Hoth wouldn’t be anywhere near as interesting if it weren’t for the T-47s and their harpoons tripping the walkers. And the battle of Endor wouldn’t be nearly as thrilling if there weren’t the giant AT-STs maneuvering their way through the woods. Both of those are coming to Legion, and you can check out these previews to see how they’ll be implemented.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Realms of Terrinoth Setting Book for Genesys RPG

The Genesys RPG system is built to handle any setting and style of game you want to run in. But that’s not to say that once you’ve got the base book, you’re fully done. Sure, if you want to make up all your different realms entirely from scratch, you can do that. But having setting books would certainly help. And Fantasy Flight has announced the first one. It takes you the world of Runewars and Runebound with the Realms of Terrinoth.

Fantasy Flight Previews the Chimera Expansion For Star Wars: Armada

Grand Admiral Thrawn is possibly the greatest threat to ever face the Rebellion and the New Republic. His deep knowledge of different races’ history, art, and philosophy gave him an edge in combat unlike any other commander.

But what other sorts of tricks with Thrawn have up his sleeve? You can see for yourself in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Previews Battlefields in Star Wars: Legion

Star Wars is truly an interstellar setting. In the movies, we see swamp planets, desert planets, forest planets, ice planets, and all other manner of locations. As such, the battlefields of Star Wars: Legion can take place in just about any sort of environment you can imagine. But how do the rules for those different locations work in the game? What role will terrain take in the game? That’s just what you get a look at here.

Fantasy Flight Posts A Preview of The Broken Horn Syndicate From Dawn of the Rebellion

When Chancellor Palpatine turned into Emperor Palpatine and created the first Galactic Empire, there were many different groups that rose up against him. Sure, we know of The Rebellion, but they weren’t the only ones wanting to go back to a simpler way of life. Another faction was The Broken Horn Syndicate. In the upcoming Dawn of the Rebellion book for the Star Wars RPG from Fantasy Flight, you can get some real insight into how this organization worked, and even become a member for yourself.

Review Roundup

Saturday!
Woo!
I don’t know about you, but for me, that first week of 2018 seemed to take an eternity! Not that it was bad, mind you. I even got to play a new game.

I will be. But even if you’re unable to get out, you can still check out some reviews.

This week we have: Heaven and Ale, Favelas, Fallout: The Board Game, Codenames: Disney, Witches of the Revolution, LIberatores, The Ruhr: A Story of Coal, and Time’s Up!: Title Recall.

Blood Bound Now Available From Fantasy Flight Games

It’s never good when vampire clans get to fighting. You think that regular gang warfare is rough. It’s just that much worse when the supernatural is involved. The war that’s gone on has left both sides near their limit. Both are looking to finish this off while they can. Only by finding the enemy leader and taking them out will this war come to an end. That’s just what you’ll be looking to do in Blood Bound, available now from Fantasy Flight Games.

Fantasy Flight Previews Profundity For Star Wars: Armada

When the Mon Calamarians joined the Rebellion, their master shipbuilding skills came along with them. This allowed the rag-tag bunch of rebels to compete with the mighty Imperial Navy in terms of ships. One of the Mon Cal’s designs was the MC75 Cruiser, featured in Rogue One. Soon, you’ll be able to add this ship to your fleets in Star Wars: Armada. Get a preview here from Fantasy Flight.

Fantasy Flight Posts New Omens of the Pharaoh Preview

Knowledge is power. That’s been known for quite some time (and thus, has been powerful for quite some time). Knowledge of one’s enemy in a conflict can certainly make the going easier. And when the enemy is an ageless deity looking to destroy the Earth, yeah, you might want to know what you’re going up against. Finding that knowledge is a key part of the upcoming Omens of the Pharaoh expansion for Elder Sign. Look at how that’ll work in this new preview from Fantasy Flight.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Combat in Star Wars: Legion

So, you’ve got your Stormtroopers and your Biker Scouts and your Darth Vader and you’ve hit the table… what next? It’s called Star WARS, after all. There’s going to be combat involved. But how will all that work in Fantasy Flight Games’ upcoming Star Wars: Legion game? Glad you asked, because they’ve posted up a preview to let us know.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts Preview of Blood Bound

When vampires fight, it’s a lot more than just your average set of gang members going at one-another. Super strength. Super speed. Regenerative powers. It can really be a mess. And that’s what’s been going on. But now, with clan membership dwindling (and the town’s garlic supply at critical levels), each clan is looking to finish this feud once and for all. That’s where you find yourself in Blood Bound, coming soon from Fantasy Flight. You can check out a quick play preview in this article.

Fantasy Flight Announces Omens of the Pharaoh Expansion for Elder Sign

Once again, the true evil in the world rears its ugly head.
I, of course, am referring to… Ancient Egypt! *Imperial March plays over scene of the pyramids*
That’s where you’ll be headed (well, Egypt, anyway, not necessarily the “ancient” part) in Omens of the Pharaoh, a new expansion coming for Elder Sign. It would seem that the Great Old Ones liked sunshine and cats, too.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces General Veers Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

As I mentioned in the other Legion preview post, the Battle of Hoth is my favorite part in any Star Wars movie. And, honestly, my favorite character in the movies is General Veers. He’s the one truly competent Imperial officer you see, and he’s obviously sure of his abilities. And soon, you’ll be able to bring that confidence to your Star Wars: Legion tabletops, as he’s getting his own figure. Check him out.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Snowtroopers Unit Expansion Pack for Star Wars: Legion

My favorite part in any Star Wars movie is the assault on Hoth. That cold-weather attack finally showed what the movies had been telling us: that the Imperial Army was a major fighting force to be reckoned with and feared. All we’d seen up to that point was the taking of the Tantiv IV. So this was really the Imperial’s chance to shine. For those that want to recreate that scene on the tabletop, you’ll be able to soon with the Snowtrooper Assault expansion pack for Star Wars: Legion. Check it out.

Review Roundup

Saturday and I have all the baking to do. Baking for friends. Baking for coworkers. Baking for friends that are coworkers. Baking for coworkers that are friends.
I mean, I bought 4 pounds of unsalted butter. I’m going to be busy today.
But before I get up to my elbows in cookie dough, I need to type up those review articles I know you all so desperately desire.

Today we have: Arena Rex, Seikatsu, New York Slice, Dragonfire, Sid Meier’s Civilization: A New Dawn, Macroscope, Kingdomino, and 1750: Britain vs. France.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Movement in Star Wars: Legion

The battlefields of the Star Wars universe are anything but static. Speeder bikes zoom all around. Walkers tromp through the underbrush. Foot soldiers look to take up defensive positions, or move up to capture said positions. But how will this dynamic battlefield translate to the world of Star Wars: Legion? Glad you asked, because that’s just what Fantasy Flight is previewing for us today.

Fantasy Flight Announces Holiday Preview Wave For Star Wars: Destiny: Legacies Expansion

So, how about that Episode VIII, eh?
… I’ve not seen it, actually. But a lot of my friends have (which means they can shut up about “OMG!! Don’t spoil anything for me!!!”)
Well, I don’t think that there’s anything that’s spoiled in the Star Wars: Destiny Legacies expansion for the movie, but previewer beware. Fantasy Flight is giving you a chance to check out the new set before it’s released as a pair of mini-waves, one of which is out today.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Rivals Draft Set For Star Wars Destiny

Some of you might’ve heard that there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out soon. There’s also a new set for the Star Wars: Destiny game coming out soon. But the main release for that is still a bit off. What will be coming sooner, though, is the Rivals Draft Pack. If you’re in one of the few areas that’ll be getting pre-release versions of this, you can get your game going sooner. For those of us that aren’t in those areas, we can still check out this preview.

Fantasy Flight Previews Red Cards From Legacies Expansion for Star Wars: Destiny

The red cards in Star Wars: Destiny represent those characters, abilities, and equipment that’s all about warfare. They’re the professional soldiers, vehicles, and weapons that are on the lines when it comes to blasters blazing. The Legacies expansion will bring players new red card options for their decks, from new characters to new things to equip them with. Fantasy Flight’s posted up a preview of some of the cards and their companion dice for you to check out.

Monday Terrain Corner

I survived the Snowpocalypse here in Atlanta. And I’m one of the lucky ones that never lost power (for more than just a flicker, anyway). I’ve got some friends that are still without. Hopefully they’ll get it back soon. And I hope all of you had a chance to enjoy the winter wonderland (if it occurred near you). And while I can’t say that these terrain stories will turn your gaming table into a winter wonderland, they will make them look nice.

Today we have: Tabletop Scenics Caption Contest Happening Now, Two Holiday Playmats Available From Fantasy Flight, Power VTT Launches Asset Subscription For Battlemap Building, and Sally 4th Running Modern African Wargames Terrain Kickstarter.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces New Mansions of Madness Expansion

Secret societies. What’re they hiding in there? Are they up to no good? Or are they just harmless? Well, it would seem as though the Order of the Silver Twilight is looking to do something with Arkham. But what? That’s what the investigators will have to find out in the upcoming Sanctum of Twilight expansion for Mansions of Madness.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Yellow Cards From Star Wars: Destiny: Legacy Expansion

The Star Wars galaxy is filled with all manner of characters on the fringes. They don’t necessarily follow any particular ideology. They’re just looking out for themselves. They’re a resourceful lot, making-do in a galaxy that’s struggling with war. In the Legacy expansion for Star Wars: Destiny, these characters and their kind are colored yellow. But don’t think that means they’re not up for a fight. Get a look at what you’ll be able to add to your decks with this preview.

Fantasy Flight Previews Command Cards For Star Wars: Legion

Without a coherent plan and a competent commander, even the best-trained and best-equipped troops will fall in battle. So, making sure your soldiers get the intel they need to know what their objectives are on the battlefield is important. And a commander choosing the best options as the battle flows along is also important. In this preview for Star Wars: Legion, Fantasy Flight shows off how the Command Cards work in the game and how you’ll use them against your opponent.

Genesys RPG Now Available

Most RPG systems are very specific to a time or place. Medieval fantasy. Interstellar sci-fi. Pulp-noir Earth. The Genesys system isn’t like that. This new set of rules gives you the ability to play anywhere, anytime, anytheme. It’s now available from Fantasy Flight.

Fallout Board Game Now Available

We blew it up!
Us maniacs!

Fantasy Flight Games Previews TIE Silencer for X-Wing

The ubiquitous starfighter for the Empire is the TIE. The standard form is almost entirely convertible into new forms. There’s many different varieties out there because of it. This has gone forward into the new era as the New Order continues to use TIE variants. One preferred by Kylo Ren is the TIE Silencer. Soon, you’ll be able to hit the skies with this ship. But so you can see the specs before you enter the furball, here’s a preview.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts New Fallout: the Board Game Preview

One thing about Fallout is that you get to decide how you act within the world. Do you want to try and help the other people who have managed to survive, or do you become a death-dealer to anyone and everyone? Those major decisions make their way to your games of the Fallout board game, coming from Fantasy Flight, as well. In this preview, we get a look at those decisions and see how they will affect the game going forward.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Combat in Fallout Board Game

Out in the wasteland, resources are scarce. Those that you come across, you’re going to have to fight to keep. And, let’s face it, you don’t have the awesome, godlike abilities of The Final Pam. You’re going to have to go at this the hard way. In this preview of the upcoming Fallout board game from Fantasy Flight, they show just how combat will work out in those irradiated dunes.

Fantasy Flight Previews Different Tones in Genesys

No, the headline doesn’t mean that we’re taking a look at the different bardic classes in the game. Here, tone refers to how the game comes across for players. Is it light-hearted and comedic? Is it dark and brooding? Is it gritty? When a system says that it’s universal, it should be able to cater to all of these. But how does the game go about doing such? Well, take a look.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Legends of the Alliance App For Imperial Assault

Games are, by their very nature, competitive. Someone is going to win, in the end. However, some games have all the players working together against the game, itself, instead of against one-another. Imperial Assault wasn’t originally a cooperative game. It was one player as the Light side and one player as the Dark side. Well, with the Legends of the Alliance App, coming soon for the game, you’ll all be able to join up on the same side and fight together.

Fantasy Flight Previews Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Unit For Runewars

Even rampaging hordes have those individuals at the front, directing it. It’s no good to have a whole army of slathering monsters and soldiers if they’re headed off in the wrong direction. That’s where the Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Unit comes in. They’ll make sure all that destructive effort goes in the right direction. We get a preview of them here from Fantasy Flight.

Review Roundup

It’s the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Man… my grocery list was 2x as long as usual. I got 2 turkeys, some sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, dressing, carrots, and ingredients to make 2 pumpkin pies. … I, uh… kinda take Thanksgiving seriously.
