Nomad Games to Give Away Free Copies of Talisman Digital Edition

Playing games is fun. Even watching people play games can be fun. But what’s better than that? Playing or watching games for charity. And what’s possibly even better than that? Getting free stuff for watching games for charity. That’s what you’ll be able to do tomorrow, as Nomad Games will be giving away free digital copies of Talisman for those tuning into their Twitch and YouTube channels.

Midweek Snippets

Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a couple months into my tenure, with Ross “The Legend” Thompson (my boss at the time) about, “These Kickstarter-things.”
So, to celebrate, let’s have a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.
What? We do that every Wednesday? Well, fine, be that way.

Today we have: Dice Coins 2 Up On Kickstarter, I Will Never Grow Up becomes exclusive distributor of Field Marshal Games products, Ramshackle Games Posts Stretch Goal Goblin For Jet Bike Kickstarter, New Discworld Death Bust -15% discount, Factions Fantasy Playing Cards Coming To Kickstarter in January, New Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, Casual Game Revolution Posts 2017 Tabletop Gaming Conventions Map, Mage Company To Launch Sleeves and Gaming Accessories Kickstarter, Kill the Unicorns Coming to Kickstarter in June, New Morbid Legionary Torsos From Kromlech, Temple of Isis Round Lip Bases Now Available From Tabletop-Art, New Releases And Final Christmas Sale From Advanced Deployment, Flatminis 2D preprinted miniatures are now available as PDF download, Two new Characters bring gold to Talisman: Digital Edition, and Khurasan releases 15mm Hezbollah and Syrian Government Forces.

Midweek Snippets

It’s the last day of November. We’re 11/12s of the way through the year. We just might make it after all.
Actually, I’m looking forward to this weekend. It should be a good time, as they generally are. I mean, weekend, right!?
But, before we get there, we’ve got some more days to get through. To help, we should power up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: Nomad Games adds Wizards and Tricksters to Steam Early Access of Smash Up!, Introducing Boxwood Genius Dice, Digital Edition of Colt Express Now Available, New Releases Available to Order From Victoria Miniatures, WarSeer Forum Relaunches Tomorrow, New Chaos Templates From Pyrkol, Old World Leather Gaming Mats for RPG Metal Dice Rolling Up On Kickstarter, Fantasy Football teams available at Flatminis as 2D plastic miniatures, New Release: Kromlech Battle Rulers, New Statuesque Fine & Pulp Scale Female Heads – Bald on sale, Special Artizan Service Miniatures Presents: Contractor On Kickstarter, Yet More Victoria Miniatures Releases, New Release: Kromlech Wound Markers, and Ouroboros Tales 54mm Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter.

Friday Snippets

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today’s doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it’s been a long time since this morning… but I’ve also gotten a ton of stuff done. So I dunno. I do know that I’m possibly going to be playing some Guild Ball this evening and then some D&D tomorrow. So that’s cool. Better pack myself full of energy with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Imperial Knight Heads From Forge World, Knight Models Previews Suicide Squad Dice, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Shotgun, Angels and Demons join Flatminis 2D miniatures range, Shadows of Esteren Announces Partnership with Syrinscape, Talisman is Free to Play This Weekend Only, Comrades in Battle Reaches Funding Goal, 15mm Naval Crews Range is Back From Capitan Games, and Final Days for Tavern Masters Kickstarter.

Friday Snippets

This week seems just interminable. There’s still half of today to go. I’m hoping to make it through, though. Got some plans to hang out with a good friend this evening and have some pizza (homemade, as in the crust and the sauce started as things like bread flour, Roma tomatoes, onion, and some olive oil), then hopefully do some gaming tomorrow. Tomorrow’s plans just became a bit clouded, but still hoping they work out.

Either way, filling up on some bite-sized gaming stories will help. So let’s get to it.

On the platter today, we have: Knight Models Teases Next Release, Kromlech New Release: Guardsmen Veteran Heads, Prospero Expansion Released Talisman Digital Edition, Brother Vinni’s River Fear Now Available, and Frazetta’s Masterpieces: Death Dealer Up On Kickstarter.

Digital Version of Smash Up Available On Steam

I got the original set for Smash Up pretty soon after it came out. A friend had picked it up and we played at my LGS one evening. It was a hoot. Quick and easy to learn, with tons of replayability right out of the main box due to how you mix up two of the factions for your deck. Well, there’s been quite a few expansions that’ve come out since then, meaning if you wanted to carry it all around, it could be quite a hefty box you’re lugging with you. Well, now you can go digital and play online… and it’s free, too.

I don’t know about you, but for me, it seems like just yesterday was Wednesday. I’m not 100% sure what happened to Thursday (maybe Langoliers ate it?), but it’s already gone. That’s alright, mind you. I’m always ready for it to be the weekend. Best to power up with some bite-size gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: Circles of Imora Trading Card Game Coming To Kickstarter, Heroic Ballads ver. 1.1 Released, Nomad Games Releases Two New Warlords For Talisman: The Horus Heresy, The Army Painter Technique Painting Bundle Now Available, and Kromlech Weekend Promo Happening Now.

Midweek Corner

Seeing as how Monday I was in a car for about 13-14 hours, I didn’t get a chance to do the regular Terrain Corner piece. So, much as I did Friday, with the combined Snippets/Terrain Corner post, I’m giving you another of those today. Gotta catch back up from Gen Con.

Anyway, today we have: Live Q&A For Tablescapes Dungeons Today, Blood Moon expansion is out for Talisman: Digital Edition, Holistic Design Inc. and Canivete Films Announce Portuguese Fading Suns Translation, Heroic Maps release Modular Kit: Forest Glades, Khurasan releases multiple pose crabmen set, New Statuesque Fine and Pulp Scale Female Heads 2 on sale, Armorcast Announces: All Hail the Mesmofrog, RPG Combat Maps: Pwork Wargames grid gaming mats now available, Hitech Miniatures Releases Traveler Priest Dante, Brassed Off – etched brass modelling details On Indiegogo, New Model 30 Billboard From Mechanical Warhorse, Sports Inspired Card Deck Up On Kickstarter, Khurasan releases The Great Swamp Lizard, and Final Days for Unit RPG Up On Kickstarter.

Digital Edition of Smash Up Coming Soon

A bit of editorializing: I loved Smash Up when I played it after it first came out. We got it at my local shop near St. Louis and played many games. It was a good time had by all. But after a couple of the expansions came out, it was a little hard to keep up and to carry around the big box of extra cards. Thankfully, Nomad Games is going to be solving that with the digital edition of Smash Up coming soon.

One thing with board games going to a digital medium is that new versions of the game can come out that have new skins and new mechanics and such relatively easily.

Nomad Games Advent Calendar Games Happening Now

December is here and so it’s time to break out the Advent Calendars for many of you. I remember always getting that piece of chocolate every day (generally with breakfast, of all times). Nowadays, you can get Advent Calendars with just about anything. There’s a Lego calendar. There’s still the classic chocolate. Hell, I’ve seen wine and whiskey calendars. But what about getting a new game deal every day?
