Woo! Saturday!
And I'm finally mostly over being sick. You never realize just how much you are thankful that you can breathe through your nose or take a couple breaths without coughing until that's exactly the opposite of how you're doing. Ah well. While I groove along to The Guess Who (because why not?), let's get you some gaming reviews.

This week, we've got: 51st State Master Set, Betrayal at Baldur's Gate, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past, Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle: The Monster Box of Monsters, Arkon, Pockety Odyssey, Noises at Night, Siege Storm, Rambo: the Board Game, Hardback, Voodoo, Palette Swap, Vast: The Crystal Caverns, Pryamids, Kingsburg (2nd Edition), Crossfire, Through the Desert (Euro Classics Edition), Nemesis, Bad Squiddo Games Onna-bugeisha, and Test of Honour: Ninjas of Iga Warband.

Do you know what nemesis means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent, personified in this case by a 'orrible bear, me.
Or, in this particular instance, Nemesis means a new semi-cooperative sci-fi board game that's tearing up the funding over on Kickstarter. Take on the role of a crew member looking to survive horrific aliens while also trying to complete your own, secret goal that may not jive with what your other crew members are trying to do.
It's Saturday. And not just any type of Saturday, but Saturday of a 3-day weekend. I can't think of a much better sort of Saturday... Well, maybe Saturday of Gen Con. But that's a pretty damn busy Saturday. But for "above average" Saturdays, I'd say that 3-day weekend Saturday is a pretty good Saturday. Do you think I've typed the word "Saturday" enough by now? Well, I don't know what you've got going on today, but I'm going to be delivering games to a friend, and then possibly having minis delivered to me. Because it's an awesome Saturday. I'm also here to show off some reviews for you.

This week we have: Nemesis, Everdell, Fox in the Forest, Hamsterrolle, Codenames: Disney, Escape Room in a Box: The Werewolf Project, 878: Vikings, Kepler-3042, Okey Dokey, Santorini, Finished!, Ex Libris, and Hunger: The Show.

As the month draws to a close, we see that it's time once more for Zenit Miniatures to post up their new releases for both of their minis games, Kensei and Nemesis (which always makes me think of the line, "Do you know what nemesis means?" But that's me). There's several releases for each game, so let's go take a look.
Zenit Miniatures has their latest releases for both Kensei and Nemesis available over in their webshop. So whether you want your fantasy with a Far-Eastern flavor or more of a ... I'm not exactly sure what sort of flavor Nemesis is... It's really kind of its own thing... but anyway... If you want either, you've got some options over in the Zenit Miniatures webshop.
Zenit Miniatures is running a special Christmas sale over in their webshop. Until the 5th of January, creatures for both Nemesis and Kensei are all 15% off. So whether you're looking for some far-eastern spirit beast or a fantasy realm monstrosity, both are on sale in the Zeni Minis webshop.
