A game can be the greatest game ever, but if you can't get a hold of it, what good does it do you? Well, if you want to get games from Wyrd but your LGS hasn't been able to make it happen through their current distribution channels, Wyrd's opening up a Direct Retail Program to sell their products right to your game store.
The Other Side
Wyrd Games is having a Black Friday sale. That is, they will be having one. Unlike other companies that've already gotten them started, Wyrd is a traditionalist and waiting until the actual Black Friday to begin. However, they wanted to give you a preview of what they'll be having so you can make sure you save your nickels for when it launches. Have yourself a look.
The castle is up for dibs. Everyone is looking to become the ruler and are building their own band of mercenaries. That's the story behind Crimson Company. In the The Other Side expansion, the veil between life and death is lifted and even more characters are available to recruit to your forces. Both the core game as well as this new expansion are up on Kickstarter now.
Honestly, if there's one company in the gaming world that knows how to celebrate Halloween, it's Wyrd. The world of Malifaux is a perfect place where it's Halloween every day, and so they're definitely doing things for the season. Wyrd's posted up their October newsletter, giving you a look at all the special things they've got going on, as well as the new releases they're coming out with. Have yourselves a look.
Wyrd has another preview they've posted for The Other Side, their upcoming miniatures game. This time around, it's a g-g-g-ghost! *leaps into a coworker's arms*
Yes, they're the Gwisin, strange apperitions in the service of Anton de Wils. Have yourselves a look.
Every time I see the name of this game, all I can think of is, "Break on through to the other side! Break on through to the other side! Everybody love my baby chicken!" Anyway, Wyrd has a new preview up for The Other Side. If you want more dakka, this is how you get more dakka. Check out the Gatling Gunners.
Wyrd Games loves to go all-out for Gen Con. And, I mean, why not? It's 4 days of gaming with tens of thousands of gamers from all over the world. For those that'll be at the show, they've posted up what Malifaux and The Other Side releases they'll have at the show.
They're also hiring a pair of game designers. Considered by many to be the "holy grail" of gaming jobs, if you think you have what it takes, send in your resume.
Break on through to The Other Side. Break on through to The Other Side.
Everybody loves my baby chicken.
Anyway, this week, Wyrd doesn't give us a new Malifaux preview. Instead, they're going for a trio of The Other Side previews. It's been a while since we've checked in with that game. It seemed like a good time to do it.
You know I love when I can see the rules for a game before I buy it. And that's just what Wyrd Games has done with The Other Side. Find out what's been going on in the real world while all sorts of things have been happening in Malifaux. The rulebook as well as unit stat cards are available to download now.
My apologies to John Mulaney for butchering that bit.
But we also have a look at a new miniature for The Other Side, the upcoming minis game from Wyrd. This week, they make our Friday better by giving us a look at the Sharpshooter.
You know, I bet it's a real pain when you get something stuck in your eye that's in the middle of your back. That's gotta be annoying.
It's a rather iconic line from Mythbusters. And I'm sure Jamie would be wanting to add the Artillery Team for The Other Side to his army. It's certainly a big boom. Check it out in Wyrd's Friday Preview.
