Flying Pig Games

Flying Pig Games' popular Old School Tactical WWII game is making their way out to the Pacific. The sand, the surf, the sea, the desperate island-hopping battles of the US versus the Japanese. It's all there. Relive many classic battles during those tense times, with 16 different scenarios included in the game. You can check it out over on Kickstarter now.

It's always good to have yourself a gaming magazine on hand. You never know when you'll find a couple spare minutes to hang out and do some reading. For those looking to get a handle on one as soon as it's hot off the presses, you can get your name on the list and pre-order issue 12 of Yaah! Magazine now. You'll save a bit of money, too.

There were many daring raids and operations during WWII. One possibly of the most was the assault on Pointe du Hoc. Now, you can bring the action and tension of that ranger raid to your tabletops with Crowbar!. The game is a solitaire tactical strategy game, with coop mode available as a stretch goal. The Kickstarter campaign is running now.
It's always good when companies listen to their consumers. Feedback from the people is a great way to know exactly what they want. Well, Flying Pig Games has heard you. They've made it so you can get their Night of Man: Alone Against the Aliens as a downloadable pdf file. You can get your copy now.
Flying Pig is pleased to expand their Old School Tactical game with a new book of units. Volume II takes players to the Western Front during the years 1944 and 1945. It features all manner of American and German units that partook in late-war actions all across the plains of Europe. You can download your copy now and get to fightin'.
You might think that just because the holiday season is over that the time of getting free stuff is gone. Not so! Flying Pig Games is still caught up in the "giving is better than receiving" spirit and has released a free scenario pack over in their webshop.
A great way to fill your day with some more gaming is via gaming magazines. And Yaah! Magazine is making sure you get their latest issue as soon as it's available. Be the first kid on the block with it when you pre-order now. They've even got special pricing for those that put their name on the list.
Most of us could see it coming. Corporations running amok. Diseases spreading through the land. Weather going all crazy. Society basically collapsed and there's little left except those nations that hung on going to war with one-another over what resources are left. That's what's happening in Armageddon War, a new tactical board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
The "busy day" at Gen Con is in full swing. I'm running around like crazy trying to get photos of things. What you're reading now is past me telling you about current me. But past me knows that current you also wants to read about some game reviews. So let's get to it.

Today we have: Scythe, Medici, Evolution: Climate, Kraftwagen, Bear Valley, Oh My Goods, Here, Kitty, Kitty, The Grizzled, Bureaunauts, Cigar Box Battle Mats, Viticulture, Euphoria, Old School Tactical, Star Bastards, and Ember.

Saturday of a long weekend, too. All. The. Bonus!

But that doesn't mean I'm going to shirk my duties. You want your review articles, and I'm here to give them to you.

So I present to you: Who Knew, Everdawn, Flick 'Em Up, Night of Man, Ra, Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization, Tyrants of the Underdark, VIII Corps: The Somme 1916, Wombat Rescue, Nefarious, Apotheca: The Secret Potion Society, Back to the Future: An Adventure Through Time, Dungeon Time, Bear Valley, and Millennium Blades.

My dad was actually drafted during the Vietnam conflict (since, y'know, there was no declaration of war ever signed. Just as there hasn't been since WWII). He trained at Fort Knox in the mechanized infantry. He learned to drive an APC. He never actually made it to Vietnam, itself, though. His orders were sent to the wrong base when his time ran out. Strange to think that I probably wouldn't be here if those orders had gone to the right place. Anyway, '65 is a new squad-based board game that recreates the early battles of Vietnam. They're up on Kickstarter now.
Flying Pig Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for Old School Tactical, their military strategy games that harkens back to the cardboard chit games of the 70s. They're well over their funding goal with still 18 days to get in on the action.


From the campaign:
Grogheads sat down and had a chat with Mark Walker of Flying Pig Games and figured you'd want to know about it (I did). See what sort of things Flying Pig has in store for their first couple releases, and get some info about the pitfalls of running a gaming company.
