IDW Games

Batman: The Animated Series is one of my favorite cartoons ever. While more a Marvel fan when it came to comic books, I went a bit more DC with my animated shows (except, of course, for X-Men, everyone watched that). Soon, you'll be able to bring all that classic action to your tabletops with Batman: The Animated Series Adventures, the next in IDW Game's Adventures Universal Game System. This new set, along with its expansions, are up on Kickstarter now.

Wizards build towers. It's just something they're known for. But each wizard's tower is a little different. How they build it reflect who they are as a wizard and the things they're looking to focus on. In the Silver Lotus Expansion coming soon for The Towers of Arkhanos, players will have more options for rooms and floors. IDW gives us a little look into what you can expect.

IDW has some good news and some bad news in their latest announcement about the Metal Gear Solid board game. The bad news is that they're going to be delayed in their delivery of the game, now looking at summer 2020. However, the good news is that this is because they're making sure the game is as amazing as possible. As a bonus, they're re-opening their pre-sales for the game. If you want to get the amazing extras, now's your last chance to do so.


I don't know. That's what I think of when I think of DBZ. Though I've since found out that all that padding was put in because the animators were under such a schedule that they just needed more time to get more animating done, and that was a great way to stretch things out. But anyway, that's all beside the point. You can power up your attacks as much as you want in the upcoming Dragon Ball Z Miniature Mayhem board game, coming from CMON and IDW.

Yes, you read that right. IDW and CMON are teaming up to bring you Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Zombicide. They had some issues when the sets first were announced, but things look like they're working better now. You can head over and pre-order your sets now.

Get out from underneath your cardboard boxes, IDW has started taking pre-orders for their Metal Gear Solid board game. Work with your other espionage-oriented friends and make your way into the enemy base. Pre-orders get special minis as well. And who doesn't want exclusive special minis?

The next in the "board games of famous video games" line will be coming from IDW Games with Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game. IDW has announced an upcoming pre-order for the game, including three exclusive miniatures that you'll only get if you jump in early. No word yet on if the box lid will be big enough to hide under.

For some of IDW's recent projects, they had announced that they were going to be working with Ninja Division. Now, many of you know the troubles that Ninja Division has had lately. In this regard, IDW has decided to update their relationship with the company and let you all know what's up.

IDW is taking you back to the sewers. They've launched the Kickstarter campaign for some new set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games. Yes, that's right. This isn't just for one game, but two, as well as a whole bunch of other expansions. Head over now, before all the pizza is gone.

The Metal Gear Solid franchise has been hiding under boxes and sneaking through game consoles for quite a long time. Now, IDW is giving you a box of Solid Snake in another form, with the Metal Gear Solid board game, coming soon.

Warlord Games is working on their Wayward board game, bringing the comic world to your tabletops. In this preview, we get a look at the first of the characters that'll be coming in the game. It's Rori. She's half-Irish and half-Japanese and all ready to kick ass and take names.

Many of you out there have read the Wayward comic. Coming next year, IDW will be bring you the ability to get down into the world and actually play around with it with their Wayward board game. Players must work together as teenagers with newfound superpowers, looking to prevent the Weave from unraveling while defending against attacks of the Yokai.

Who you gonna call?

The Men in Black, of course. Or maybe the Ghostbusters. Or... I know... BOTH! That's what you'll be doing in Men In Black/Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion, a new game coming from IDW and Panda Cult that joins these two franchises together for the first time.

The race is on! Who is the fastest one in the land? That's up to you to decide in Sonic the Hedgehog: Crash Course, a new board game coming from IDW. In this preview, we get a look at the game as a whole and how it works. Unfortunately, there's no recipe for chilidogs included.

Woo! Saturday! Boxing Friday... kinda... Ok, that's maybe a bit of a stretch, but waddyagonnado? Seeing as it is Saturday, that means you want to see some reviews. Well, that's what I'm here to give you.

Today we have: Remnants, After the Virus, Missile Command, My Little Scythe, and Endogenesis (can you tell a lot of reviewers were out of town last week?).

Less than a week away. Gen Con is less than a week away. This weekend's the last one before the show. Still tons of planning and prep to do. For you, that includes figuring out what booths you want to visit. Well, to help out, IDW Games has posted up what sort of things they plan on having at the show.
IDW and Toei Animation have announced an expansion of the rights for Dragon Ball games being made by IDW. This means you can expect a lot more Dragon Ball games in the future, two of which are already well along the pipeline to hitting your table. They're Dragon Ball Z: Over 9000 and Dragon Ball Super: Heroic Battle.
Gotham is filled with all sorts of criminals. The police force can't handle it all. Even the masked crusaders that prowl the streets are getting a bit overwhelmed. This is a crime spree of epic proportions, and if the city is to survive with any sort of law and order, it's going to take a concerted effort between everyone. That's where you find yourself in Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham City Under Siege, a new board game coming from IDW. In this preview, we get a look at some pre-production pictures.
Hooray for Saturday!
What can't be accomplished on a day like today?
Well, I can accomplish some RPG-ing. You can even watch if you want.
But what I know you're actually here for: Reviews! So let's get to it.

Today we have: Outpost: Amazon, Gloomhaven, Clank! The Mummy's Curse, Covalence, Ganz Schon Clever, Helionox, The Mind, Wreck Raiders, Getaway Driver, and Boss Monster: Rise of The Minibosses.

In which I totally mess up the date for when this was supposed to post and then go back and fix it. :P
Look, these things happen sometime!
Anyway, here's the regular grouping of review articles I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes, Rush in the Forest: Three Little Pigs, Torres, Exoudus Fleet, Steepseers, Super Hack Override, This War of Mine, Assembly, Noria, Get Off My Land, and Monster Card BLVD.

Weeeekeeeeeeeend! Woo!
Time to get out there and get some gaming in. What kind of gaming? Doesn't really matter, as long as you're out there having fun. But if you're really stuck for a game idea, perhaps these reviews can help.

Today we've got: Darwin's Choice, Star Wars: Rebellion, Majesty: For the Realm, Time Barons, Herbalism, Feudum, Cabooses in the Corner, Seikatsu, and Guards of Atlantis.

Food fight!
Tacos and burgers and ice cream is flying all over the cafeteria in Nickelodeon Splat Attack!, the new game from IDW that's over on Kickstarter now. Players gather teams of four characters and look to score Cool Points. But watch out for that flying bowl of soup or you'll lose all the points you were acquiring.
It's not a food fight if there's not something to throw. Then it's just a fight, and that's not nearly the same sort of thing. In Nickelodeon Splat Attack, the cafeteria has broken out into the mother of all food fights, and everything's going everywhere. In this preview, we get a look at the otherworldly food from Invader Zim. It's... actually pretty tasty-looking.
I, like a lot of people out there, loved the Batman animated series. Great characters. Great story. Great animation. Great voiceover work. Soon, IDW will be bringing that world to our tabletops with the Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham Under Siege board game.
Now here's one show that I do remember watching back in the day. Rugrats follows the lives of a group of babies as they go about their lives. Well, apparently they've wandered into the cafeteria and are partaking in the mother of all food fights. Check out these new characters coming to IDW's Nickelodeon Splat Attack.
