You’ve probably seen videos of Christmas trees falling over (sometimes with the assistance of family pets) and causing damage. They’re cute and often hilarious. What’s not so funny, though, is when a massive Christmas tree starts stomping around downtown, wrecking entire city blocks at a time. That is, unless, you’re the one controlling said Christmas tree. And if you’d like to get your own for King of Tokyo or King of New York, there’s two ways to do so from iello Games.
I hope you’re making it through the week just fine.
Mine’s hit a bit of a bumpy road, as I’m typing this from the mechanic’s. Thankfully, they have free wifi. Seems Bitey, my car, isn’t feeling so good and so he’s getting a checkup.
So yeah, hopefully your week is going better than mine. But what’s keeping me going is some gaming news, such as the bite-sized stories we’ve got for you now.
In this batch we have: New s-300 missile available for BallisticAces from BattleGateGames, Klukva Miniatures Releases Two New Busts, Purgatory’s Second Model WIP Posted, Baueda new 15mm Gallic Cavalry On Indiegogo, PMD Games is launching their first Kickstarter on October 5th, Microshoggoth slimes into Tooth & Sword, and Draccus promo available for purchase from iello.
The inspiration to add a figure or character to a game comes from all over. Game designers may see a movie they like or read a book they think has a cool character that could go well with their game. Such a thing happened when the folks at Iello read The Name of the Wind by author Patrick Rothfuss. They knew the monster from the book, The Draccus, would be a great addition to King of Tokyo and King of New York. It didn’t hurt that apparently Patrick was a fan of the game.
Another Saturday night (well, afternoon) and I ain’t got nobody (well, I’m hanging out with my gaming group). I got some money ’cause I just got paid (well, earlier in the week, yeah). Oh how I wish I had someone to talk to (well… again, with my gaming group, so I’m talking with them). I’m in an awful way (I’m starting to think this song wasn’t the best choice to use in this opening, since I’m doing just fine right now, but I’ve typed this much, I’m going to stick with it).
Time once more for a Review Roundup. Here’s the game/product reviews/previews/unboxings we found in the last week.
Items include: DreadBall Hobgoblin Unboxing, King of New York, the Melee expansion for Chaostle, Five Tribes, and Last Will and it’s Get Stacked expansion.
We’ve got another Saturday here on TGN and that means a collection of the review stories we found throughout the week. What are others saying about the games you’re interested in playing? Read on to find out.
This time we’ve got reviews (and a couple previews) for games/models like: Rivet Wars, Eight Minute Empire, Kromlech’s Orc Warchief, Witness, new Nachtjager releases for Flames of War, Scoville, Wizard Dodgeball, San Juan (the game, not the location. Though one is based on the other), Xia: Legends of a Drift System, Out of Dodge, Hoyuk, the 5th Edition Monster Manual, Amerigo, and King of New York.
That should keep you busy for a while.
