There is evil in the world. That's why most adventurers go out and fight against it. But beyond just being generic "that's bad," what about games that want to further explore just what being evil means? Well, that's where the Corpus Malicious comes in. It's a new supplement for your D&D games that expands on evilness and what it means to be evil. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
Zombicide, the fan-favorite cooperative zombie survival game, is getting itself a new edition. CMON has launched their Kickstarter campaig to bring it to your tabletops. It's all the zombie-killing action you've come to live, updated with all the cool advancements made over all the different versions of the game that've come out since its original release.
In order to win over Ramona, Scott Pilgrim has to defeat all of her evil exes. Now, you can help him out, or fight against him, whichever you choose. That's what's going on in Renegade Game Studios' Scott Pilgrim Miniatures the World. Either fight with Scott or take on the role of an evil ex in this tactical miniatures combat game that's up on Kickstarter now.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a paleontologist. I'm sure many of you did as well. Dinosaurs are just inherently cool. Well, I might not have ended up as a paleontologist, but I can still live the life vicariously through Fossils, a new, uniquely designed board game that's up on Kickstarter now. Grab your shovel and get going!
Having pre-made adventures just makes running a gaming group that much easier. The GM just has to open up to the right page and away you go, altering it as you go if necessary to fit your group. Well, if you're playing the Amazing Tales RPG and have been wanting some more adventures to try out, you're in luck. The Big Book of Amazing Tales is an adventure compendium that's up on Kickstarter now.
A massive fire has gutted the ancient city of Rome. Now, various architects and designers are looking to rebuild. But whose design will win out? That's up to you to decide in Rome & Roll, a new roll and write board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
As a former janitor, I've had to clean some really nasty things, but one of the worst has to be an old refridgerator. They're just terrible. You come across a container of... well... something that smells foul, looks wretched, and god forbid you accidentally get any on you. Thankfully, playing Dirty Fridge is a clean experience. It just seems dirty. The card game is up on Kickstarter now.
Gamelyn Games is known for their Tiny Epic line. Now, it's time to add another. This time around, it's Dinosaurs. You're a dinosaur rancher and you're looking to acquire, breed, and sell all the best dinosaurs that you can. But they're ornery types, and corraling a multi-ton behemoth isn't going to be easy. This new addition to the Tiny Epic series is up on Kickstarter now.
Shades of Vengeance has a new Era RPG Kickstarter campaign running. This time around, it's Era: Lost Legend. If you're a fan of Final Fantasy games (and I know that I am), then this is the RPG for you. Head on epic quests. Battle humongous monsters. Save the world for the last time (it's never the last time).
Scott Pilgrim. It's a much-beloved comic series that sees the titular Scott fighting through evil-Exes to win his lover's heart. Well, soon, he'll be fighting for love on your tabletops. Renegade Game Studios has announced Scott Pilgrim Miniatures The World, a new miniatures game that they will be bringing to Kickstarter next week.
Thursday. The week continues to fly by. Wednesday, the day that, for me, always seems to take the longest, was really quick. I'm always appreciative of that. Most weeks, it just drags on by. But yesterday was quick. Hopefully, today and tomorrow can be so as well so we can get back to that great weekend. But before we can slide our way down, we need to make sure our gaming tables look good.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Apocalypse Fortress 3D Printed Terrain Up On Kickstarter, Labyrinth Terrain Tiles Up On Kickstarter, Sector Corvus Prime 3D Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter, and Orc Skull Trophy Rack Available From Tabletop Scenics.
The hounds were all prepped, ready to battle for control of Boneshire. The armies were lined up on the field and itching to fight. But then, something happened. A squirrel ran by. Or maybe it was a tennis ball bounced past. Maybe someone opened up a bag of treats. Whatever it was, everyone got distracted and ran off. When the dust settled and everyone realized they still needed to fight, nobody remembered what side they were on. So, it's time for the commanders to draft new doggos to fight for them. That's the story behind Knights of the Hound Table, a new card game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Look, I know this is St. Elmo's Pay and not St. Elmo's Fire, but I still have Man in Motion stuck in my head while typing up this piece.
Anyway, this game has nothing to do with the movie or song (or supernatural effect on mariners). It's all about what is credited as the greatest siege in history. Malta is under siege by the forces of Suleiman and you're in charge of one of the sides. Will the city hold or fall? That's up to you to decide in 1565, St. Elmo's Pay that's up on Kickstarter now.
As the temperatures FINALLY start to fall here around Atlanta, soon people will be pulling out big, comfy quilts to keep warm. And where there's a comfy, warm quilt, you'll probably find cats along with it. But if you don't have any quilts or cats of your own, you can still live vicariously through Calico, a new tile-laying game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Oathsworn: Into the Deepwood seems like it's got a bit of everything. The Kickstarter campaign for it calls it an "artisanal cooperative experience." And, I mean, it's got mystery boxes for the monsters, audiobook elements, what looks like enough tokens and cards to even make Fantasy Flight blush, and lots more. Seems to be a popular project, too. Why not check it out?
The Victorian Mansion. It sparks the imagination of all the wild things that happened there. The wealthy aristocrats and their various squabbles. The help, just looking to make it through another day. All the intrigue and mystery. It's into this world that you delve in Obsession. Now, they're looking to expand the game more with the Upstairs, Downstairs expansion, which focuses on the servants and their roles to play in the grand schemes. The set is up on Kickstarter now.
Ancient volcanos. They're the perfect place to have temples. I mean, what else can provide better natural defenses against intruders? Nothing, that's what. But you and your other adventurers are going to head into that temple and grab that priceless artifact. That's the story in Sub Terra II: Inferno's Edge, a new stand-alone expansion for Sub Terra that's up on Kickstarter now.
Walking slowly away from an explosion without looking at it. Inept cops who ignore obvious clues right in front of them. An orphaned hero trying to make their way in a world that doesn't understand them. Badguys who can't hit the broad side of a barn at 10 paces. All of these are movie cliches and they've been turned into several sets of cards that you can use to play multiple games. Said decks of cards are up on Kickstarter now.
Gamers, in my observation, love to get their drink on. Hey, they're generally fun-loving, social people. So why not toss back a few libations from time to time? Well, when you mix drinking and gaming, you get a drinking game. But more than just remembering what numbers are divisible by 3 and 7, there are a bit more involved drinking games, like Drinking Quest, the drinking RPG. The new expansion, Old Habits, is up on Kickstarter now.
<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
You know what that means, Giant Robot Alert. We have Giant Robot Alert. And this one almost crept on by unnoticed. But, at nearly the last minute, we caught it on our screens. It's Obsidian Protocol, and it's a new squad-based mecha miniatures skirmish miniatures game that's up on Kickstarter now. Grab your gear and get going!
Seven Bridges is a bit different of a roll and write style game. Everyone gets their map of a city and must maneuver around it. The difference comes in that when the dice are rolled, players draft which of the dice they will use on their trek. The race is on to add to your pathway and connect through the city. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
*high-pitched, squeaky voice* Yeah, I was just calling to see if you had Addams Family Values yet.
I remember the delightful days of going to the movie rental store and perusing what was available. My family would often end up there, grabbing a small stack of new movies to watch (and maybe a video game or two for me). Those were the days. If you want to relive those times, you'll want to check out Rental Rumble, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Dwarves. They dig in the dark (dig in the dark is a gas. Baby, can you dig it?). That's just what they do. Working together, they're able to excavate vast mines under mountains. However, each dwarf really wants to make sure they get the best bits for themselves. And that's what you'll be doing in Beneath, a new semi-cooperative board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
If you're a fan of supernatural horror and adventure, you'll want to check out Night Shift. It's a new RPG that puts you in control of characters fighting off the supernatural in an altered form of our everyday world. Just when you thought it was safe to head to the mall, you find it infested with vampires. That high school dance is the target of a werewolf. Elves and other Fae are subtly working their way through politics for their own gain. You can check out this new game up on Kickstarter now.
WWI is, to me, one of the most fascinating times in human history. The results of that war still influence culture, war, and politics to this very day, a century later. If you'd like to see what life was like back in the trenches (but don't actually want to fly to France or risk death out in No Man's Land), you will want to check out Ross Rifles, a new RPG system powered by the Apocalypse System that's up on Kickstarter now.
