Nexus: Scrapyard Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Look, just because something is in a scrap yard doesn’t mean it’s useless. You can find all sorts of great stuff there. Just take, for example, parts for CivShips. Those pieces are expensive, but you can find them all over in the scrapyard. In the end, you could have a first-class CivShip of your own. That’s just what you’ll be looking to create in Nexus: Scrapyard, a new card game up on Kickstarter from pawnjoker.

Pawnjoker Games Running Court of Kings Kickstarter

The king is dead! Long live the new… err… what? You say that there’s no one in the line of succession to take the throne next? Well… crap. That’s going to put a damper on things. Well, thankfully, there’s the old king’s advisors. They’ll be able to help run the country while a new king is found. Of course, those advisors wouldn’t have any sort of ulterior motives or hidden agendas, right? Wrong! And that’s just what you’ll be playing out in Court of Kings, a new game by Pawnjoker Games up on Kickstarter now.

Pawnjoker Games Running Court of Kings Kickstarter

The king is dead! Well, that’s gonna make things difficult. Oh, and there’s no immediate heir to the throne. That’s going to make things even more difficult. However, in the chaos, the kingdom still has to be run and a new king has to be found. However, such times also offer opportunities for those with their own agendas. The former king’s advisors all had their own plots and plans, and what better time to try and move some of those forward? That’s the story behind Court of Kings, a new game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Bushido is the code of honor and morals developed by the Japanese samurai. It’s also the name of one of my favorite miniatures games.

TGN Sunday Edition

Welcome to Sunday. We’re glad to have you here. I hope your Saturday was good. Mine involved a Battle Chef cutting down raiders with a Horse Butcher. It was a good time. “Here, eat this.” is apparently going to be a catchprase for him, especially when dealing with the Intelligence 8 Half-Orc Barbarian that’s also part of the party.

But that’s as may be. Let’s get on to a sampler of bite-sized stories for your Sunday afternoon.

A quick one for you today. This batch includes: Happy Seppuku’s Base and Terrain Stamp Upgrade Kickstarter, The Deathless Unlocked in Panzerfauste, and the final week for Smoking Aces on Kickstarter.

Smoking Aces back on Kickstarter

*turns on the Motorhead*
Ace of spades!
And while Lemmy never really discusses if the aforementioned aces are smoking or not, I think it’d be safe to assume there’s about a 50% chance of that being true.
However, one place you’re guaranteed to find Smoking Aces is up on Kickstarter now, as the campaign has been relaunched.

Smoking Aces Hybrid Poker Game on Kickstarter

I very distinctly remember when poker had that huge surge in popularity all those years ago. Many of the guys at my LGS caught the poker bug and started playing it regularly. Being in St. Louis, they’d head down to the boats to play. However, sometimes we’d also meet at my friend’s place for a “nickel ante poker night.” We’d play any kind of poker that you could think of (not just “Texas Hold ‘Em”), and since ante was a nickel, if you lost $5, you’d lost your shirt that night. Back in those days, if we’d had a Smoking Aces deck, there’d be yet another version of poker we could’ve played.
