Sometimes you want to RP but you don’t have a DM around in order to run the campaign. Well, that’s annoying. What happens if you also don’t want to set up a big game board and all the extra tokens and such that goes with it? That could bring your gaming night to a halt right there. But that’s where Random Encounters comes in. It’s an RPG in a card game.
The week is coming to an end. Hopefully if you were at Gen Con last weekend, you’ve managed to get back into the “regular swing” of things. Just yesterday I was able to get through the last few lingering e-mails that’d backed up over the week I was away. Now to cruise into a nice weekend of… well, I plan on cooking. Red beans & rice, maybe some Italian beef… I want to make a pumpkin pie with squash mousse as well… We’ll see how much of that I actually get through. Anyone that wants to come over and taste-test is welcome.
Speaking of bite-size morsels, we’ve got a collection of news stories that fit that description as well.
This time around we have: Year Two Collection released at The Ion Age, The Fiver with Joshua Garrett on Designing Random Encounters, New Female elven guardian by Brother Vinni, New Tokens and Templates from Sally 4th and Final Days for Casual Game Insider Magazine on Kickstarter.
Welcome to another Saturday, beautiful readers. We’re in a bit of the “calm before the storm.” The last weekend before Gen Con. I did some grocery shopping specifically for the trip (granola bars and cough drops to have in my satchel as I run all around Indy). Next will be making a packing list to make sure I’ve got everything I need while there. What sort of prep do you guys have going on?
Well, take a small break from all that packing and painting and whatever else you’re doing to enjoy some reviews we found during the week.
In this week’s batch, we’ve got reviews/previews of: Systema Gaming Base-0 HQ Unit, Police Precinct, Random Encounter, Roadkill Rivals, Fleet Wharfside, Specter Ops, Karma, The Voting Game, DeadFellas, Black Fleet, Fief: France 1429, Imperial Assault, Flea Market, and Gold Ahoy.
