From regular, run-of-the-mill pirates to space pirates we go. I’m not sure if you still have to hoist a misenmast or deal with yardarms, but there’s still plenty of plundering and pillaging taking place out in space. That’s what you’ll be doing in Into the Black: Boarding Party, a new game coming from I Will Never Grow Up Games that’s coming to Kickstarter in a week.
Yarr arr yarr! You know, pirates aren’t just on the seven seas. As we’ve reached out into the stars, the swashbucklers have followed. In Into the Black: Boarding Party, you take on the role of one of these space pirates as you board an enemy vessel. While the overall goal, of course, is to loot and plunder, each pirate has their own goals in mind, too. The game is up now on Kickstarter.
Man, it is busy over here on this side of the screen. Pretty much all week there’s been stuff going on. I’m sure that’s part of why it feels like it’s really flown by… And I’ve still not really gotten a handle on what I’m going to do with my D&D group tomorrow! Gah! There’ll be time for that later (hopefully, theoretically, grammatically, esoterically). But, if we’re to keep up our energy, we should nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Avignon: Pilgrimage Coming To Kickstarter in January, CloseYa network is open for a public beta in US, WW1 Themed Dice to be released in January from I Will Never Grow Up, Aenor Miniatures website Online, Week 3 December Deals Available From Greater Than Games, Merry Bitsmass Weekend Promo from Kromlech, and 3D Preview Posted For Ether Wars.
Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a couple months into my tenure, with Ross “The Legend” Thompson (my boss at the time) about, “These Kickstarter-things.”
So, to celebrate, let’s have a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.
What? We do that every Wednesday? Well, fine, be that way.
Today we have: Dice Coins 2 Up On Kickstarter, I Will Never Grow Up becomes exclusive distributor of Field Marshal Games products, Ramshackle Games Posts Stretch Goal Goblin For Jet Bike Kickstarter, New Discworld Death Bust -15% discount, Factions Fantasy Playing Cards Coming To Kickstarter in January, New Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, Casual Game Revolution Posts 2017 Tabletop Gaming Conventions Map, Mage Company To Launch Sleeves and Gaming Accessories Kickstarter, Kill the Unicorns Coming to Kickstarter in June, New Morbid Legionary Torsos From Kromlech, Temple of Isis Round Lip Bases Now Available From Tabletop-Art, New Releases And Final Christmas Sale From Advanced Deployment, Flatminis 2D preprinted miniatures are now available as PDF download, Two new Characters bring gold to Talisman: Digital Edition, and Khurasan releases 15mm Hezbollah and Syrian Government Forces.
What’s cooler than being a pirate? Being a space pirate, of course! (watching Firefly taught me that) The game is a semi-cooperative, tile-laying, exploration game. Head out there and engage in some high-nebula piracy, but beware of a possible traitor in your midst.
Well, we’re making our way through the week. Two and a half days down. Two and a half days to go. Then we get to the glorious, glorious weekend. Do you have things planned coming up? I’ve got a bunch of things from Adepticon that got sorted through last weekend. This weekend it’s time to get things started on writing articles for them. So expect those in the next couple weeks.
To help keep our strength, let’s fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.
