It’s the last day of the month. We’re 1/4 of the way through the year. The summer heat isn’t far away. Time to get your board game collection bulked up and get set for some hot months ahead (or cold ones, if you’re down south). CMON’s got a whole bunch of new releases available today that you can pick up at your LGS.
The Year of New Editions continues to roll along, updating much-loved games and bringing them to new levels with updated mechanics, cleaned-up rules, rebalanced features, and more. Another new edition of a game will be available tomorrow. Ankama and CMON will be bringing you Krosmaster Arena 2.0.
Well, yesterday was quite a whirlwind of activity. Nothing but nonstop activity and excitement here at the 2nd day of the CMON Expo. There’s lots to do and see, so let’s show some of it off.
There’s some big news in video games today. No, not the release of Fallout 4! I’m instead talking about the release of Krosmaster Arena for PC, Mac, and Linux systems. The tabletop game of teams battling one-another in search of the Krosmoz is now available for you to play on your computer. And hey, it’s free.
Seems everyone’s getting into the Halloween spirit as we get ever-closer to the date. Japanime Games is the latest to get themselves a sale up and running. So if you want some Krosmaster sets, along with some free special goodies with your order, you’ll want to check out what they have available.
Japanime Games wants to get everyone in the family involved in Krosmaster. To help out, they’re coming out with Krosmaster Junior. This, simplified, version of the game is great for bringing younger gamers into the mix. All of the characters in this form have the same abilities, and the first several scenarios teach you the basics of the game while playing.
But even if you’re a Grand Zen Master of Krosmaster, you still get new maps and characters if you choose to pick up the set. So there’s something for everyone.
From them to you: Continue reading
