WizKids


Weekends are fun. I had a good time on Saturday. Game was a random mish-mash of things. But that's what you get when you let our group just loose in a city with time to kill. Anyway, as it is the start of the week, we need to make sure your gaming tables look good. Quick one for you today, but no less important.

We have: WizKids Announces WarLock Terrain

Discuss

I've got D&D coming up this weekend. I'm certainly excited about it. You never know just what you're going to get into, who you might fight against. That's why having a diverse set of minis is good to have on-hand. WizKids is helping expand your collection with Icons of the Realms: Volo’s and Mordenkainen’s Foes, their latest set of figures. You can pick them up at your local gaming store now.

Ettins. They're a mythical creature known primarily for having two heads, each with their own personality, but a shared goal in mind. Now, you can take on some aspects of the Ettin with, well, Ettin, a new card game of teamwork against other Ettins coming soon from WizKids. Draft your warriors and fight over three ages. In the end, only one Ettin will be the ruler.

You went to Camelot. You participated in the tourney held there. Perhaps you even triumphed! But that's not the only tournament in the land. Avalon has its own, and you've decided to go participate there as well. That's the story behind Tournament at Avalon, a stand-alone, but 100% compatable, sequel to Tournament at Camelot. WizKids will be bringing you this new trick-taking adventure soon.

Discuss

Many of you out there have tabletop game collections. Some of you might even have stamp collections. In Stampede, you can get a little bit of both. It's a new card game coming from WizKids where players are looking to make the best collection of animal stamps that they can.

Games will always be growing and evolving. Even if something's playtested a bunch, when it gets out into player's hands, there might be things that they find that don't work as intended. That's where updates come in. That's what we've got here from WizKids. They've taken a look at HeroClix Skirmish and have posted an update to the rules.

Discuss

Let's get ready to- not finish that phrase because of copywrite. Anyway, if you're wanting to bring the hardcore, top-turbuckle flying, suplex, bodyslam, Baby Face Half Nelson action to your tabletops, you can do so with the new WWE HeroClix set, available now. Ridiculously huge belt for the winner sold separately.

Discuss

When everything is super-powered, then everything works well together. At least, that's the idea behind O.P. Arena, the new party card game that's available now from WizKids. There's T-Rexes, there's Unicorns, there's the Grim Reaper, and more, all on these crazy cards. Battle out for supremacy.

Discuss

Merlin is hosting a grand competition. He's called together wizards from all over, looking to test their skills in a special hunt. There's a bunch of mystical creatures out in the hunting grounds, and it's up to the wizards to corral them. That's the story behind Merlin's Beast Hunt, the new dice game available from WizKids now.

Discuss

When I'm playing D&D, I like to have miniatures out on the table that as accurately as possible represent what our party is fighting. That can sometimes get difficult. But thankfully, there's always new figure sets coming out. In this case, it's Volo’s & Mordenkainen’s Foes. Sounds like it should have plenty of evildoers for our party to take on.

Discuss

The next wave of Wardling figures is now available from WizKids. This time around, it's the evil foes that the Wardlings must go out and defeat. There's new Orcs of different forms, as well as a dragon, a gryphon, and more. Head out and see what you'll be facing now.

Discuss

No, the dials aren't going to be clear now on HeroClix figures. However, since the dials are printed on the back of the hero's stat cards, WizKids is going to be changing their game rules so that one player can look at another player's stat card whenever they want. Now, many games have such open information already. Now, it's just coming to the HeroClix world.

Discuss

Paizo's filling up your trick or treat bags early this month. You can head over to your LGS and get yourself new releases for Pathfinder, Pathfinder Battles, and Starfinder now. Need some new terrain? They've got it. New character options for your Pathfinder character? You bet. New Starfinder adventure? Sure, why not? Some new minis to represent your fiends and foes? Check.

Discuss

Sure, it's October, and that's a perfect time to get out some scary movies, but Coraline is one you can just out just about any time (in fact, I did just a couple months ago). Soon, you'll have a new way to explore the movie with Coraline: Beware the Other Mother, a new card game coming from WizKids. They've posted up a little preview for you to check out. Just don't stay too long or you may end up with button eyes.

The starships of the Federation are crewed by the most capable people available. But, they won't get a lot done if they simply stay on the ship all day. Nope, someone's going to have to go planetside and see what's up. And that's just what you'll be doing with your new Star Trek HeroClix Away Team figures. You can pick up these characters from the Next Generation series now.

Discuss

Look, we've all had friends and coworkers that you just can't rely on. You ask them to do something. They say they're going to do it. But then you wait, and wait, and wait... and they just never show up. WizKids has brought that to the tabletop with Age of Dirt: The Game of Uncivilization, a new worker-placement game where sometimes your workers get lost or wander off and don't always do what you need them to do. You can pick up your copy now.

Discuss

Let's get ready to... not finish that phrase or I'd have to possibly pay a large sum of money.

Anyway, for those of you WWE fans out there that want to bring your larger-than-life wrestlers onto your tabletop, you'll want to look no further than the WWE Mixed Match Challenge starter set that WizKids is coming out with. It's everything you need to get playing, with four wrestlers, tokens, rules, and a ring in which all the slammin' action can take place.

Discuss

Can you smeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllllll what's on Mick Foley's hand? Probably. It's a sock after all, and I don't know how often he washes that thing.

If you're looking to get into HeroClix with the new WWE set, WizKids has a perfect place to do so. They've announced their The Rock 'n' Sock Connection Starter Set with some of the WWE's most iconic characters ready to hit the mat.

Discuss

Hands up everyone who used to watch the X-Men Animated Series. *raises hand* Yeah, it was a pretty sweet cartoon. And who can forget that blasting guitar intro? Anyway, if you want a bit of nostalgia and also to add to your HeroClix collection, you should check out the Marvel HeroClix: X-Men the Animated Series, The Dark Phoenix Saga (full names are fun!). This new set is available now.

Discuss

Ooooh yeah! It's time to once more look at the upcoming WWE HeroClix set that WizKids is producing. These high-flying performers have some really wild moves, and translating all of that action to the tabletop is of the highest priority. It's with that in mind that WizKids is showing off their Advanced New Standard Powers that will be showing up on the figures. Check it out and make sure you've got everything planned out right.

Discuss

Some of you were just talking about Sidereal Confluence not too long ago. If you're wanting a negotiating game where just about anything is free reign, you'll want to check it out. And WizKids is coming out with a Remastered Edition, with new artwork, card layouts, updated and upgraded components,a nd more.

Discuss

The Nautilus. Arguably the most iconic submarine of all time. Captained by the hero/villain Captain Nemo and his intrepid crew, they went on many adventures all over the world. Now, you can join them. Nemo Rising: Robur the Conqueror is now available from WizKids. Partake in one of two different adventures as you work together to complete goals before time runs out.

Discuss

Your adventuring party has cleaned out the local nest of goblins and gotten their reward. They head to the tavern for some well-deserved rest when someone suggests a game. Cards and pulled out and bets are made. Chances are, the game they're playing is Three Dragon Ante. If you want to get in on the same action, you can do so with the new Legendary Edition of Three Dragon Ante, available from WizKids.

The logistics behind getting gaming products out to you, the populace, are huge and complicated. And try as they might, sometimes things don't go as planned. Any small hiccup along the way can cause a change in when product is available. So, with that in mind, WizKids is sad to say that they are pushing back the release of the Marvel HeroClix: X-Men the Animated Series, the Dark Phoenix Saga set until the end of the month.

Discuss

WizKids is creating a card game based on the Coraline movie (one of my personal favorites, mind you), which is, of course, based on the Neil Gaiman book. It's called Coraline: Beware the Other Mother. In the game, players take on the role of the ghost children, captured by the Baldam, who are looking to free Coraline by finding various objects around the spooky house and avoiding all the other strange people living there. The game is set for a December release.
