Gamelyn Games is adding a new game to their Tiny Epic line. In this case, it’s the walking dead. Zombies are swarming through Echo Ridge Mall in Tiny Epic Zombies. You’re one of the last survivors, but will you continue to be a survivor, or will you simply be lunch? That’s up to you to decide. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
It’s the weekend! Wooooo! Partaaaaaaaaaay!
And by “Party,” I mean gaming!
Working on getting this Review Roundup and then gonna head out to the LGS to play some Guild Ball.
Today we’ve got: Tiny Epic Quest, Sagrada, Azul, InBetween, BONK, Stop Thief!, Agility, Cast the Ritual, Fog of Love, H.I.D.E., First Class: All Aboard the Orient Express, and Go Nuts for Donuts.
Gamelyn Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, their new 4-X board game for 1-6 players. Lead your faction to victory across the massive game board, warring with other players for resources and using 80 miniatures.
Well, this rocket-fast week is rocket-fastly coming to an end (yes, I made up a word there. It’s not a very good word, but there it is). The weekend stretches before us like a blank canvas. Personally? I’m going to be playing some Guild Ball, putting together some Kingdom Death (or, hopefully, just playing more Guild Ball 😛 ), and then making a fruitcake (because I actually like fruitcake). But that’s as may be. If I’m going to be doing all that, I should fill up on bite-sized gaming stories to make sure I get through it all.
Today we have: Gamelyn Games announces Heroes’ of Land, Air & Sea, Steampunk 35mm Miniatures from Topexx Dominions Now Live on Kickstarter, HSD Miniatures Expansion 1 on Kickstarter, and Battle Dice Weekend Promo From Bits of War.
Tiny Epic Quest is the latest in the Tiny Epic game line from Gamelyn Games. A fantasy world is created that’s full of adventure. It’s up to your band of heroes to go out and explore it, looking for wrongs to right and foes to fight, completing quests while gathering more powerful items and spells. The group with the most points at the end is the winner.
*runs around with my arms over my head*
Ok, enough of that. Let’s get down to business. You want to see review articles and I’m here to supply them (it is one of the most-popular posts of the week, after all).
Today we have: Sky Dynasty, Inis, Flash Point: Dangerous Waters, My Village, Death Pit Duels, Mombasa, Hold Your Breath, Tiny Epic Western, Colony, Z War One Damnation, Nightlancer, and Scythe.
Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black is a new, big-box expansion to Tiny Epic Galaxies. The new set offers quite a lot in new game mechanics. Sure, you get new ships, but you also get new pilots, new set-collection aspects, and a new press-your-luck style of exploring the galaxy. There’s even a Deluxe version that comes with a mini-expansion.
So, as I was in a car for just slightly more than 1/2 of yesterday, I didn’t get much of a chance to post up the Midweek Snippets post. As such, I’m rolling it in with today’s Terrain Corner, as I have a bit of time right now to do so (and to give you a “peek behind the curtain,” I’m actually typing this late at night here on Wednesday).
Anyway, in this Terrain Corner/Snippets post we have: Gaddis Gaming Launches 28mm WWII Miniatures Kickstarter, Turn One Gaming Supplies Releases 8-Bit Dice, Donnybrook skirmish game rulebook now available, Post Apocalyptic Dwarf Bikers Up On Kickstarter, Round-Lip Space Dungeon Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Heroic Maps – Giant Maps: The Great Labyrinth Now Available, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Finial sculpts are in and late pledge extended, Crossover Miniatures Releases Frederick Class Airship, Meka Desert: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat, Gamelyn responds to backers with only 3 days left, and Battle Valor Games 15mm Fantasy New Releases.
I love bluffing mechanics in games. Being able to keep some information secret from your opponent while you play can add a lot of interesting elements to a game. What card do they really have there? What symbols did they roll on those dice? Did they have their character move left or right? Mechanics like that add some “battle of wits” in with the other strategy elements in the game. Such is the case with House of Borgia, a new bluffing dice game from Talon Strikes Studios and Gamelyn Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.
Mount up, men! We’ll head ’em off at the pass!
“Head them off at the pass? I hate that cliche!”
The other day, while getting my new tattoo, we put on Blazing Saddles for something to listen to (besides the buzzing of the tattoo machine). I think the only thing that movie didn’t have that was satire of old Westerns was a game of cards (though there was a game of Chess). Well, Tiny Epic Western from Gamelyn Games does involve games of cards in order for you to take over this one-horse town.
As we hunker down here for what could potentially be the first major winter weather event here in Atlanta (in which the temperatures are supposed to be above freezing, except for an hour or so, I’m not really expecting much of an issue here. Though the Northeast looks like it needs to brace itself), we think about what we could be doing with all that potential time spent huddled in our homes, unable to go out. So how about some gaming! Seems like a perfect time. So we’ve gathered together some bite-sized gaming stories for you to snack on.
Today’s stories include: Prime Battlewalker Arms Available From Puppets War, House of Borgia Coming to Kickstarter, Blood Rage Foam Trays Available From Battle Foam, New Iron Reich Orc Taskmaster with Gnaw Hound Available From Kromlech, and New Biomechanic Heads Available From Tabletop-Art.

Club Fantasci’s Jason Hancock takes a look at Tiny Epic Kingdoms from Gamelyn Games in this new review article.
From the post:
Tiny Epic Kingdoms is a 2-5 player micro game designed by Scott Almes and published by Gamelyn Games. I just received my Kickstarter Edition of this game and was excited to get it to the table. Of course, like all games when I first get them, (Wife claims I’m worse than a kid), I open them immediately to examine all the bits, tokens, boards, currency, and whatever extra goodies that came with it way before it ever hits the table.

Gamelyn Games has a Kickstarter campaign going for Tiny Epic Kingdoms, their 4X Micro-Game. It’s 6-times funded with still over 2 weeks to go.
From the campaign:
What does 4x mean!?
It means eXpand, eXplore, eXploit and eXterminate and usually only shows up in games that cost $50+ and take 2hrs+ to play. Well not anymore! Tiny Epic Kingdoms has all the strategy of a traditional 4x game without the cost or the long playing time. Tiny Epic Kingdoms is only $16 and takes only 30-60 minutes to play.
In TEK, you are a tiny kingdom with big ambitions. You want to expand your population throughout the realms, learn powerful magic, build grand towers, and have your neighbors quiver in fear at the mention of your name. The conflict? All of the other kingdoms want the same thing and there’s not enough room for everyone to succeed…
