Checking Out the Camp Brochure: An Unboxing of Ninja Camp

From a camp where I run away from zombies to a camp where I learn to be a ninja. Probably could’ve used the skills from the latter in the former, but waddyagonnado? Anyway, I had participated in the Kickstarter campaign for Ninja Camp from Action Phase Games. I’d played a demo of it at last year’s CMON Expo (and wrote up a review that you can read here) and liked it enough that I wanted in on it as soon as possible.

Well, the Kickstarter campaign long since ended and backers are starting to get their sets. I got mine and figured I’d give you a look inside.

So grab your merit badges, it’s time for another TGN Unboxing. This time it’s Ninja Camp by Action Phase Games.

TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

Hello there, all you gaming friends out there in gamer-land! Seems for the moment that it’s actually going to be a bit winter-like here in Atlanta. At least for a couple days. No, it’s not like the winters I remember in Chicago, but if we had a winter like that down here, this place would never dig out of that. The whole state would shut down until June. It would be a nightmare.

However, a blizzard’s-worth of reviews here today is just fine. (Because transitions!)

Today we’ve got articles on: X-Wing Miniatures Game, Star Wars Armada, Imperial Assault, Conflict of Heroes – The Eastern Front Solo Expansion, Queen’s Necklace, Terrakami Games Sci-Fi Containers, Crusader A15 by Rubicon Models, Bountytown, Between Two Cities, Bad Beets, Ultimate Warriorz, Jamaica, The Gallerist, Mombasa, Ninja Camp, Shakespeare, Cthulhu Realms, Eternal Dynasty, Outer Earth, Fool’s Gold, and Dark Age Z.

Midweek Snippets

We continue on with the post-Gen Con week’s work. Though I was able to keep up with a lot of things, obviously, things are going to fall behind in some areas. I’m almost out of the mountain of e-mails I’d gotten over the weekend. If I’ve not replied to you yet, don’t worry, I will. There’s just a lot to sort through.

At the moment, though, it’s sorting through a bunch of bite-sized stories.

This time around we’ve got: Age of Tyrants Updates Rulebook, New Heroic Scale Female Heads from Statuesque Miniatures, Fablestone Dice: Bone Origins now on Kickstarter – fantasy themed dice with innovative features, Another Warthrone approved army list: High Elves from Warhammer, Khurasan releases 15mm Middle Eastern Irregulars, Free Miniature for August from The Ion Age, Pay What You Want Adventure Module Now Available, New 32mm Lava themed bases Available from Dark Art Miniatures, Evil Bear Wargames First Release: Bear Tactical Hardsuits, and some more installments of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic.

Black Pajamas Will Be Provided For Each Student: A Preview of Ninja Camp by Action Phase Games

Who doesn’t love ninjas? Whether you’re a fan of the old martial arts movies from the 70s, or the actual, historical accounts of peasants fighting against oppressive governments, or if you simply enjoy yours in a half-shell, there’s probably some form of ninja you like. While not specifically a ninja, I do enjoy me some “Chinese Boxing Ailuropoda melanoleuca.” The fellows over at Action Phase Games also enjoy some ninja action. But how does a ninja become a ninja? Is there a school for something like that? The fellows at Action Phase are going to answer that for us with a resounding, “Hai!” as they introduce us to Ninja Camp, their new card game.
