"If you're such a goth, where were you when we sacked Rome!?" Well, we're not quite to the sacking of Rome yet, but it is certainly the final part of the Roman Empire that we find ourselves in The Fall of Hispania. Tribes like the Vaandals, Suebis, Alans, and Visigoths are looking to take over the Iberian Peninsula. Standing in their way is the Roman Legion. Who will win? That's up to you to decide. The game is up on Verkami now.
Japanime Games wants everyone to be able to play their games. Particularly, right now, they're focusing on making it so a whole new audience can enjoy Tanto Cuore, their deck-building game. As such, they've launched a Kickstarter campaign for Tanto Cuore International Edition.
It's almost here, everyone! The weekend will be here before you know it! Along with the gaming, I'm certainly ready for pizza for dinner tonight. The Ramen I've been having is getting a bit old on the palate. But in the meantime, I can nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: Syrinscape and Green Ronin Partner For Mutants and Masterminds Soundscapes, 28mm 1939-41 Soviets Kickstarter is live, Mechanical Dice Towers up on Kickstarter, Knuckle Sammich Reaches Funding Goal on Kickstarter, First Busts from project "Monument of Glory-2" now available From Shieldwolf Miniatures, Tanto Cuore International launching June 7th, New Customization Add-On for Polyversal Kickstarter, and Kromlech Weekend Pigment Promo.

Vampires. They don't like sunlight (... most of the time). Being intelligent creatures (... most of the time), they tend to go out of their way to avoid it. Well, thanks to the tilt of the Earth's axis, the polar regions tend to end up with times of the year where it's dark the entire time (and light the entire time, too, but the vampires really avoid the area then). Bloody Nights is a board game that recreates the tension of that time of year in a far-northern town that's being besieged by vampires. Survivors must collect provisions and weapons, as well as find good hiding spots, all without being turned into lunch.
Wake Up, Cthulhu is a new board game that's over on Verkami and looking for some funding love. And it seems that they've found it, since there's 10 days left in the campaign and they're closing in on 4x funded. Players of this card-driven board game are playing as cultists trying to awaken everyone's favorite Great Old One. Will your spell be the one that finally brings Cthulhu back to the waking world? If so, you might just not get eaten right away. Fun!

From the campaign:
Maze Quest - Eternal Stone is a new dungeon delving board game that's up on Verkami (a crowdfunding website). Taking creative cues from works like Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal, the game pits heroes versus a labyrinth master who will do everything they can to keep the heroes from their goal. The game will come in both Spanish and English.
The campaign is online for another 33 days. They're still a long way from their goal, but with a cool idea and a lot of time on the clock, they've got a good chance of making it.
