No matter how long a Kickstarter campaign is, there’s always the chance you just don’t have the funds available at the time. It’s happened to all of us. Well, if it happened to you during the Zombicide: Green Horde Kickstarter campaign, never fear! The Late Pledges have opened up an...

The Rise of Moloch Kickstarter will be getting underway here in just under two weeks. I’m a firm believer in being an informed customer. So reading up on a game and seeing all you can about how it will work is important to me. It’s also important to CMON, as they have a pair of […]...

Friday’s almost here. I’m excited, as usual. But it’s a bit extra-exciting since some new releases for The Others will be available. New resources for both the F.A.I.T.H. and the Sins players will bring new resources and challenges to your games. Will humanity be saved? Don’t ...

No matter when Kickstarter campaigns run, or for how long they run, there’s always a chance that you can’t join in on it. Thankfully, there’s the Late Pledge time where you can get in. It’s basically a 2nd chance to get involved with the campaign and still get the exclusives a...

Gen Con’s on, but not all of the news is coming from the convention floor. This one just hit my inbox and I wanted to share. CMON has picked up the branding and intellectual property rights for Zombicide from Guillotine Games. The two companies have been working hand-in-hand all up to this poin...

It’s bad enough that there’s humans that have been infected by the zombie plague. Then you’ve got the wolves coming after you as well. But this time around, the zombie plague is going airborn (of sorts) as now even the crows have succumbed to the foul magics of the necromancers and ...

Well, the Kickstarter for Massive Darkness ended last night. And as has become tradition, with the end of one campaign, the announcement of the next has been made. This time around, things are getting steamy, as CMON and Guillotine Games once again head to the world of Smog. This time it’s with...

It’s coming to an end, everybody. The Kickstarter campaign for Massive Darkness will be over today. The new dungeon crawl board game from Guillotine Games and CMON takes players below the surface and into seemingly endless twisting corridors. But with danger lays opportunity. Grab the treasure ...

The Massive Darkness Kickstarter campaign is coming to an end soon. There’s just a couple days left, but that just means it’s time for CMON and Guillotine to pull out all the stops. That begins with the Reptisaurians, a new enemy set that’s an optional add-on to your pledge....

Maybe you’ve been concerned that the monsters in Massive Darkness haven’t been massive enough. Well, there’s a new biggie ready to walk down the halls of the dungeons and it’s more than prepared to bash your hero’s heads in. It’s the Hellephant (and yes, I love tha...

Rats. Some people keep them as pets. But as an adventurer, you know that you’re probably going to have to go deal with some oversized rats at some point. Though much of the time the rats aren’t armed and armored. The Ratlings in Massive Darkness are armed and armored and are a new add-on ...

The Kickstarter campaign for Zombicide: Black Plague had a lot of Kickstarter-exclusive expansions and add-ons for it. But that’s not to say that all of it was Kickstarter-exclusive. Several of those expansions were slated for regular retail release. And, as you know, I always love to see that ...

Part of the draw of Massive Darkness is that it’s able to draw from all sorts of different fantasy elements and can then add them to the game. A new Heroes and Monsters optional add-on has been… well… added on to the Kickstarter campaign. This set pits three heroes versus the massiv...

Well, hopefully by checking out the Massive Darkness rulebook, you’ve seen that Massive Darkness and Zombicide: Black Plague are different games. But that doesn’t mean that there’s no way to crossover between the two. It just takes a bit. That bit is now available as an add-on in th...

Massive Darkness continues to roll along on Kickstarter. They’ve made it through a bunch of stretch goals, always with another one to go afterward (that’s half the fun, though!). Well, to help make it through more stretch goals, and to entice some of you fence-sitters, they’ve poste...

I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand, walkin’ through the streets of Soho in the rain. Ok, being fair, I’ve never been to London, and thus, never to Soho. Maybe someday. I hope I don’t run into any werewolves, though. And while you might run into a werewolf in the Wulfsb...

We all know that I think it’s great when a company posts the rules for their games for free online. To me, it shows trust in their product. “We know you’re going to love the game. Just read it for yourself.” It lets people try out a game before they decide to buy it. Well, [&h...

Fighting zombies isn’t easy. There seems to be a never-ending wave of them and eventually you’re gonna run out of bullets. Fighting them makes one tough. And the heroes from the first Zombicide game have been fighting zombies for quite some time now. As such, they’ve leveled-up (bes...

Time is running out! The end is nigh! That’s said figuratively, in the form of what’s going on in The Others, as the characters of FAITH work to thwart the Sins from bringing on the apocalypse. It’s also meant literally, in the form that the Kickstarter campaign only has 12 hours to...

It would seem those token packs were really something people wanted, as The Others Kickstarter really took off a bit yesterday. Or it could be that another new, big expansion box was added as an add-on. Probably that (though the tokens are cool). The Apocalypse is at hand with the new Apocalypse Box....
