Late Pledges Open For Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay

It happens to many of us. We miss out on a Kickstarter campaign. There’s many potential reasons for it. Maybe you had an unexpected charge come in. Or just too many other Kickstarters going at once. Or you just flat-out missed it was going on. Thankfully, the late-pledge time for campaigns has given many people who would otherwise have missed out another chance. And that’s just what you’ve got now with the Wander: the Cult of Barnacle Bay Kickstarter. Late pledges just opened up.

Midweek Snippets

It’s halfway over. The work week is about half-done for most of us. With any luck, you’re looking forward to a weekend of gaming. I might be doing some of that. But I can guarantee that I’ll be doing some baking. Actually, that’ll start tomorrow. We’re having a chili and dessert cook-off here at the office on Friday. Then, over the weekend, I need to “pay for” a custom game mat design a friend did by baking him some of his favorite treats and sending them off. Hey, the barter system is alive and well among my friends. You do some graphic design for me and I’ll bake cookies and brownies for you. But before we get to those bite-size treats, let’s nosh on some bite-size gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Final Days for Cult of Barnacle Bay on Kickstarter, MASK FX Camouflage tape is back, 17 New Releases Available From Dark Sword Miniatures, New Void Elves Available From Raging Heroes, New Orc Mechanic Available From Kromlech, and Voting For Round 1 of Iron Painter Happening Now.

Panda Cult Games Launches Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay Kickstarter

You all probably know that one of my favorite artists out there is Heath “BA” Foley. I like his art so much, I got a piece permanently attached to my arm. Well, him and another couple good friends of mine are running their Kickstarter campaign for Wander: the Cult of Barnacle Bay. It’s a cooperative dungeon crawl board game where players are looking to root out the nefarious cult and their twisted and deformed monsters from Barnacle Bay.

Panda Cult Games Posts Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay Preview

It’s never good when a cult leader moves into town. Things start getting weird. Dark magic starts to take over, and mutations and various corruptions start manifesting in the populace. What that town needs is some heroes to come in and save the day. That’s just what you’ll be doing in Panda Cult Games’ board game Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay. They’ve posted up a look at the box art, as well as a short video showing off some of the enemy miniature sculpts.

Super-Deluxe Wander Preview

So, unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it out to Adepticon last weekend like I’d’ve liked. But that’s life. But, when you get lemons, make lemonade. I got in touch with the folks over there and they hooked me up with a treasure trove of preview material. We’ve got character art. We’ve got stat cards. We’ve got equipment cards. There’s some photos of the new Otter Fisherman, too. It’s quite a lot and it all looks awesome.

Red Panda Miniatures Posts New Wander Preview

Well, unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to make it to Adepticon this year. Sad, too, because I was really looking forward to trying out Red Panda Miniatures’ new game, Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay. Well, I can still live vicariously through photos posted online.
Or I could just drive over to BA’s place after they get back and make him show me how the game works. One of the two.
Anyway, they’ve posted up some preview shots of the game laid out for the demo scenario.

Well, as was expected, Thursday has turned into Friday. The week’s still going by quickly (that’s NOT a complaint). So it should be almost no time before I’m headed home for a lovely weekend of… I’m not 100% sure what I’ll be up to this weekend. Having spent the last two Saturdays driving ~9 hours, if I just was to chill at home, I’d be able to handle that.

Hey everyone.
Well, I’m back home again. What? You didn’t realize I wasn’t sitting in the office as usual this week? That’s because TGN is always in my heart and I take it wherever I go.

Friday Snippets

Well, for those of us here in the US, it’s been a bit of a shorter week this week, what with the holiday on Monday. I’ve always preferred holidays on Mondays as opposed to Fridays, since then, after a long weekend, you’ve got a nice, shortened week before the weekend is back once again. And you know my thoughts on weekends. But before we get there, we need to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

On today’s platter we have: Wander Reaches 100 Backers And Posts Stretch Goal Update, Age Past Revised Core & Companion Kickstarter Launching August 1st, Covert Intervention Games Buys Force20 Ranges, and New Sentry Gun Available From Hitech Miniatures.

Friday Snippets

Well, despite Wednesday and Thursday trying to pull a fast one on me by making me think it was Friday when it really wasn’t (seriously, I worked much of yesterday thinking it was Friday, despite posting up a Terrain Corner…), the real Friday has stood up.

Friday Snippets

It’s been a long week.
Well, ok, technically it’s been as long as pretty much every other week. But it seems that it really slowed down starting Wednesday afternoon. I’m certainly ready for the weekend, anyway.

Red Panda Miniatures Launches Wander Kickstarter

Long-time readers of TGN will no doubt know the name of Heath “BA” Foley (artist to the stars). He’s done artwork for quite a few companies out there, including On the Lamb, Gangfight Games, and Mantic. Well, recently he’s made his own company, Red Panda Miniatures (or RPM for short. I told him to go with Bar Axel Miniatures, which would mean he could be “BAM” but I lost out). They’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for Wander, their new line of figures, that they hope to turn into a game in the future.
