Game-O-Gami has launched a Kickstarter in order to bring a couple new pantheons to their Immortal strategic card game. If they get to their funding goal, they’ll be adding Egyptian and Celtic gods to their game. And not just as an expansion pack, they will be putting the new cards into the base game, itself (so the headline might be a bit of a misnomer. It is an expansion, yes, but it’s hopefully going to be going into the core game).
Sometimes a first round isn’t your best. It’s ok. If you pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and go back into the fracas, you’ve got a good chance of coming out ahead, based on the knowledge you learned the first time around. Such will hopefully be the case for Game-o-Gami, who has relaunched their Kickstarter campaign for Immortal, their card game of mythological battles.
We’re half there to back to the weekend.
This weekend will be a rather busy one. Tomorrow it’s set-up for the CMON Expo and Friday it starts. We’ve got a lot planned, especially for Saturday. Be sure to check back on that day regularly as we post updates from the various panels that’ll be happening that day. If you’re interested in CMON’s games, you’ll want to check back often.
But that’s this weekend. We’re still on Wednesday. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Right now, we’ve got another set of bite-sized stories.
This batch we have: Forge Prints HD Dungeon Accessories and Bases Kit 1 on Kickstarter, Robot Zombie Cat Card Game On Kickstarter, Crooked Dice release Heroic Archetypes, The Thin Blue Line: Detroit Savage Worlds Module Coming to Kickstarter Soon, Rebel Minis Releases 28mm Earth Force Widowmaker Battlesuits, Adeptus Mechanicus joins the fray in One Page 40k, Several More Installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Heroic Maps New Wardenhale Gambling Den Map, Post Captain Master Index Pt 2.

Saturday night’s alright for gaming. Well, all of Saturday is alright for gaming, really. At the time this posts, there might or might not be a TPK happening. For my player’s sake, hopefully they’ll not just “charge at the enemy” as their go-to strategy. But… that’s PCs for you.
But that’s as may be. In the meantime, we’ve got a collection of review articles we’ve collected from the week.
This week’s batch of reviews/previews includes: Homeland: The Game, Monstrous, Welcome to the Dungeon, Dimension, Ether Wars, Immortal, Sultan’s Library, and Forbidden Stars.
If someone asks if you’re a god, you say YES!
Game-O-Gami is running a Kickstarter campaign for Immortal, their new strategy card game of gods and monsters. It’s an interesting mix of games. Placement of your cards is very crucial, since when you play a character, they have different stats based on how they’re oriented on the field. Plus, when you attack an enemy and defeat them, they become part of your forces (sort of like Othello, where you’d flip over the other guy’s tile to your color). Each card also has special abilities on their card. The abilities aren’t spelled out there, though. There’s just an icon. That makes it so the game can be easily translated into various languages without having to print new cards each time.
Broken Spirit Wargames has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Immortal, their new fantasy miniatures game set in the Dark Ages. The campaign is to raise funds to print their games’ rulebook. There are no specific minis for Immortal, and they recommend you use whatever fantasy miniatures you want to use. Raise your tribe of Romano-Britions, Picts, Irish Raiders, Saxons, Welsh, or Pennines and use the power of the newly-awakened old gods in order to conquer your neighbors. Just be wary, the gods have their own ideas of who should be in charge, and so what they want may not exactly be what you want.
*does a little “It’s Friday” dance around the office* un-cha, un-cha, un-cha, un-cha, wakachika, wakachika, wakachika, wakachika, boom-nau-nau da-boom-da mananga-nanga, boom-nau-nau da-boom-da mananga-nanga. Oh, hey there. Did you know that it’s Friday? 3-day-weekend sort of Friday, even. Booyah!
Granted… I’ll still be back posting news on Monday, but don’t let that spoil the mood. It’s still a Friday after-all.
And with that we have our regular batch of bite-sized stories we’ve collected here for you.
