Unfortunately, babelfish aren't real. We can't all just understand all languages. As such, we're still translating games to different languages. If you find that French is your preferred language of choice, Funforge is here for you. They're teaming up with Modiphius to bring you French versions of their Conan RPG.

Essen is just around the corner. The show is one of the biggest out there and many companies will be showing off their new games. Funforge will be doing just that with Nimiji, a new stand-alone new game in their popular Tokaido range. Will you be at the show? You'll have a chance to check it out. For the rest of us, there's a YouTube video showing it off, and it'll be available later tihs year. So there's that.

Funforge is running a Monumental Kickstarter campaign. That describes both the name of the game as well as is an accurate description of what the game encompasses. It's not just your standard 4x civilization board game, but it also brings in deck-building mechanics as well. If there's a mechanic you like in those types of games, it's probably in here.

*runs around with arms over my head*
Alright, let's do this thing!

Today we have: Tulip Bubble, Nuked, Wasteland Express Delivery Service, Brutal Kingdom, Dwarven Smithy, Crows, Sticky Chameleons, Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures, Haspelknecht: The Ruhr Valley, Rumbleslam, Game Toppers, Quantum, and Samurai Gardener.

Welcome back once again to Saturday. I hope it's treating you well.

Lots of things to look at today, so let's just get right to it.

Today's articles include: 7 Ronin, Adventure Land, Karuba, Warehouse 51, Aether Captains, Rattle Battle Grab The Loot, Istanbul, Wings for the Baron, Shenanigans The Musical Kickstarter, Brass, Star Realms, Star Vixen from Kabuki Models, and Mage Wars Academy.

We're getting there, everyone. The weekend will be here soon (or for those far to the East of here, it's already come). Friday Eve has become Friday. What a grand day.

Anyway, let's get ready for the weekend with a couple bite-sized stories.

Today we have: New 15mm Fantasy Releases From Battle Valor Games, Hitech Miniatures Releases Heavy Weapon Operator "Faustine", Enigma Distribution handles the edition and the distribution of Tokaido for the Dutch speaking market, and Easter Free Shipping Promo From Kromlech.

Well, we've been having a lot of stories recently about a company bringing a new game to an English-speaking audience. It's only fair that we bring you a story about a company bringing new games to a French-speaking audience. As such, I'm letting you know that Funforge will be in charge of distribution for Lookout Games' games in French-speaking countries.
As we tend to do after Friday, we are now deposited here on Saturday. That means all day getting the chance to do some gaming. It also means we have our Review Roundup.
So without further ado...

This week we have stories on: Rory’s Story Cubes: Batman, King's Pouch, Space Movers 2201, Warehouse 51, Neon City Rumble, Viceroy, Machina Arcana, 7 Wonders: Duel, Age of Tyrants Junkers and Viridians, The Minecraft Card Game, Battle Foam P.A.C.K 720 Molle Army Bag, Thunder Alley, Halo: Fleet Battles, and Starfighter.

Hey everyone. Welcome to another Sunday Edition here on TGN.
Now, some of you might've noticed that we ran Sunday Snippets on Saturday and are doing the Review Roundup here on Sunday.
I'm... not entirely sure how that happened actually. I think all the necromantic energy from the Zombicide previews got to me and confused up my brain! All day yesterday felt like Sunday. It wasn't until like 4-5pm that I was like, "Wait... it's Saturday!" Anyway, we've got your reviews for you today.

This week we've got reviews/previews of: Pathfinder Battles: The Lost Coast Booster, Kromlech Orc Character Set, 12 Realms: Ancestors Legacy, K2, XenoShyft, Fief France 1429, Samurai Spirit, Deus, and Galactic Strike Force.

Funforge has launched their Kickstarter campaign for ZNA, their new zombie survival board game. This cooperative board game is set in Boston in the year 2025. The city has been overrun by a mysterious fog that horribly mutates all that come into contact with it. The players must make their way through the rubble, trying to complete the scenario (there are a bunch of different ones) while fighting off horrible monstrosities and doing their best not to let the fog contaminate them as well.

The game also has an option app that can help streamline play as well as bring in new scenarios and effects for the game.

They've already made their funding goal, and they've posted all their stretch goals, so you can see which ones are coming up as they continue to go along for the next 27 days.


From the campaign:
FunForge has some more details up about ZNA, their upcoming cooperative survival horror board game, including the launch date for their Kickstarter. Expect to go live on December 17th.

The game takes place in Boston in the year 2025. A mysterious fog has rolled over the city, transforming and warping all it touches. This fog is an ever-changing part of the game, moving and effecting things as the players progress along. However, the players can fight back by finding special chemicals when defeating enemies. These chemicals can be used to heal themselves, or alter the fog in certain areas, or even control enemies.

TableTop posted up their first episode of Season 3 for your viewing pleasure.


In this episode:

Wil Wheaton and guests Jason Wishnov, J. August Richards, and Chris Kluwe play Tokaido in this episode of TableTop!

Indie Cardboard takes a look at Funforge's Quantum board game and gives you their thoughts on the subject.



From the post:

"Elegant” is the most overused word in board game commentary. It’s a surprising, seemingly out-of-place adjective in this setting, and its constant invocation is frustrating because no one ever defines it in context. Fear no longer: in this context, elegant means efficient.

FunForge has posted up their announcement about ZNA - Patient Zero, their new board game project coming to Kickstarter.

From the website:

The action takes place in Boston in 2025.

The city has been hit by a storm of dark fog that residents simply call later "the Fog" . This fog destroys everything in its path, plunging the world he left behind in the chaos. It is unclear the exact extent of the damage. Fog semblance settle permanently on the areas it touches, making them so dangerous, almost impassable and infested with mutants are all lethal threats.

The vast majority of the population seems to be infected with Fog and those who were not killed are infected to the point of turning into violent creatures, ruthless, equipped with superhuman abilities and are constantly chasing the survivors .
