Woo! Saturday! Woo!
I’ve… got nothing, really. I’m about to head over to a friend’s place to game. So let’s just dive into the reviews, shall we? We shall.
This week, we have: Wordstacker, Wordsy, Dragoon, Founders of Gloomhaven, Quest for the Antidote, Tokaido, Marvel Legendary: Noir, Quiver, Thunderbirds, Beasts of Balance, Stop Thief!, Zoo Ball, Automobiles: Racing Season, Between Two Cities: Capitals, Far Space Foundry, Good Cop Bad Cop, Unlock!, The Cohort, Star Scrapper: Cave In, Century: Spice Road, This War of Mine, Barenpark, Heldentaufe, Kingdomino, Pathfinder Adventures app, and Space Invaders Dice.
Blame Canada (Day), but it seems that the post got eaten by the system. It happens occasionally, but it’s alright. We can rebuild it. We can make it stronger, faster, better… Or mostly the same but with this new intro.
Anyway, this week we have: Werewords, Caverna: Cave vs Cave, Not Alone, Evolution: The Beginning, Black Hat, Big Bang 13.7, Kingdomino, Match Madness, Lady Richmond, Century: Spice Road, Homes: 2 Player Card Game, Coldwater Crown, Quadropolis, and This War Of Mine.
Big shows are a great place to release new games, as well as preview upcoming projects. Ares Games is taking those opportunities at Origins in a couple weeks. They’ll be having the official launch of Sword & Sorcery, as well as giving attendees a chance to play several new games that’ll be available later this year.
Seems we’re getting a lot of popular video game titles coming over as tabletop games lately. There’s Bloodborne and Dark Souls. Now there’s This War of Mine. For those that might not have played This War of Mine (such as myself, since I’m not really a video game guy), just think if, one day, you woke up and found that a war was raging all around your city. You’re not a soldier (probably), but now you’ve gotta deal with surviving in a war zone.
And so we start winding down this long, holiday weekend. Soon it’ll be back to the office. But we’ll always have the memories of another Thanksgiving. I hope you had a chance to go and spend some time with friends and loved ones, hopefully playing a game or two in there.
Anyway, as for today, we’ve got some bite-sized stories for you as you bite on leftover turkey sandwiches or (in my case) gallons of turkey soup.
Today’s stories include: This War of Mine Tabletop Game Announced, Luma Dice On Kickstarter Now, Brother Vinni’s Dungeon Sisters Indiegogo Passes Funding Goal, Ratgard Releases Vampyrum surface-to-air missile system, and The A.S.P. Troopers are Coming From Nexus Miniatures.
