The Third Law


Are you ready for some full-contact robot gladiator action?
Well, I hope so, otherwise the rest of this announcement's kind of wasted. The Third Law has launched on Kickstarter. In it, players take on the role of Machinists, a programmer who assembles and builds teams of robots, called Wreckers, to fight out in arena combat. When the bots take damage, feedback will loop back and hurt the Machinists, so it's best to make sure you're not singed by the end.
Hey kids. I see from my friends feed that quite a lot of you are headed to Chicago for Adepticon. I really wish I was going. I would be, but there's a bunch of proofing projects that are coming along, and I know how you gamers get if you have to wait even an extra day to get your games. ;)
Anyway, if you're on the road or the plane or the pogostick, you're going to need to keep your energy up. So here's a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories to tide you over until you can get to Portillo's.

Today on the platter we have: Higher Grounds is Gearing Up for their Dhovaine Kickstarter, Privateer Press Bringing Nemo Bust To Adepticon, Killbox Games Running Frazetta Miniatures Kickstarter, Reichguard Knights Medieval Miniatures On Kickstarter, Early Imperial Roman Legionaries Available From Victrix, Hannibal & Hamilcar Coming To Kickstarter Next Month, Treasure Island reached Full Captain Kickstarter News, Dark Art Miniatures Releases British Motor Platoon Passenger Trays, Khurasan releases Southeast Asian baggage elephants, Win A Copy of the Outlands Rulebook, Casual Game Revolution Posts Top 5 Takeaways from GAMA Trade Show 2017, The Third Law: Kickstarter date confirmed, Acheson Creations Releases Megatherium (Giant Sloth), Weapon Platform Weapons Now Available Separately from Kromlech, The Iron Crows and other Dwarves of Kazhuk Izril, and Final Days For Dinosaur Island on Kickstarter.

I have a personal rule when it comes to games: try it before you buy it. I know a lot of you have much the same rule. I can't afford to spend money on a game I won't be playing often. So that's why I love when companies post up their rules online for free. You can check them out and give them a try before you dive in. The guys over at Primogenesis are going a step further with posting a whole print-and-play setup for The Third Law.
The week rolls along (and I've got Ace of Spades playing), so you know I'm working at a pretty fevered tempo. If I'm going to keep up this pace as I work on TGN stuff and then get busy with some work on (redacted), I need to get a good meal of bite-sized gaming stories. Good thing that's just what we've got here.
