Trickerion Board Game up on Kickstarter

Mindclash Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for their new board game, Trickerion. In it, players play as magicians and illusionists looking to be the David Copperfield of them all (he's still a thing, right? I remember watching his specials all the time when I was younger. My sister was a huge fan). The campaign has already passed their funding goal with still 28 days to go.
Though now that I'm thinking about magic, I'm thinking Gob Bluth, and now that I'm thinking Gob Bluth, I'm thinking The Final Countdown...

Darkraven Soundscapes: Cthulhu & Horror Music Kickstarter

Darkraven Games is running sort of a double-Kickstarter all in one. They're looking to fund both a Cthulhu-Fantasy and Horror Music soundscapes sets. Bring some atmosphere to your gaming sessions (because blasting Foreigner during your fantasy RPG group just isn't cutting it... unless your playing a bard like I am in my campaign. He rocks!).
And to be fair, you don't have to just play it while gaming. It also makes just good mood music while painting or working on other things.

TGN Editorial - Press Announcement Pique

Associate Editor Enrico Nardini pulls out a pernicious problem present in Games Workshop’s latest press announcement. See what has him piqued! tgn-editorial_360 There are times when I feel like Games Workshop is in a position where they can do no right. 2014 did show improvement in some areas. Did you ever think you would see bundle deals that had an actual and meaningful discount? How about new starter sets that once again, could be considered a value for your gaming dollar (including units you might actually want to purchase)? Yet, in the age of the $25+ single figure blister, it’s hard to not think that there are still systemic issues in GW’s attitude and business model that may be causing their continuing profit backslide.
