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.
How’s everyone doing today? Ready for the weekend? I think I’m gonna keep mine rather chill, just putting together the last of my friend’s Guild Ball stuff. They’re already assembled. They just need greenstuff work done on ’em (filling in some small gaps, filling in the base slots, stuff like that). Other than that… not much. Plan for Thanksgiving, I guess.
But as for right now, it’s time to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today we have: New D&D Icons of the Realms Miniatures Starter Set Now Available, Steamforged Previews Steamcon/Black Friday Sale, Confrontation Evolution Fan-Made Rules Posted, Wamp releases Master of Roots Bust, Ever wonder what Kriegsspiel Dice looked like?, Super Chibi Round 2 – Reboot Late Pledges now open, Final Days for Portable Paint Station On Kickstarter, New Numidian Infantry Available From Victrix, Spot It! Dobble Coming Next Year, New Releases Available From Hitech Miniatures, German Language Version of Thunderbirds Board Game Up On Spiele-Offensive, and Kromlech New Release: Human Skulls.
The disasters that International Rescue are always trying to solve might seem like they’re just random encounters, or maybe just coincidences. But really, there’s a nefarious person behind it all. The Hood is looking to destroy International Rescue once and for all. He’ll not stop with the kidnappings, hijackings, and other dastardly deeds until his goal is achieved. Now The Hood can be part of your Thunderbirds board game experience, as the new expansion is available.
It’s just a fact that there’s always going to be things going wrong in the world. Either some form of natural disaster or some crazed madman and their organization of evil will mean that rescue of innocents is going to be necessary. Thankfully, the Thunderbirds are go, ready to swoop in and save the day. That’s what you get to do in the Thunderbirds board game, of which a new expansion, Above & Beyond, is now available.
Hello there, Saturday! Nice to see you could stop by. Do come in, have a seat, and make yourself at home.
I hope your Saturday is going nicely. I’ve got baking to do. Cookies, brownies, and maybe some other stuff. We’ll see.
