District Games Running No! Kickstarter

District Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for No!, their quick and casual card game. The object of No! is pretty simple. You just want to be the first player to play all your cards. The only problem is that other players can disrupt your plans by playing No! cards. And since potentially every card in the game is a No! card, that can be a pretty difficult thing.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now, and will be for the next 27 days.

WizKids gives us another look inside the upcoming Avengers Assemble HeroClix set with a preview of Immortus. The time-traveling Nathaniel Richards has gone by a couple names over the years, including Kang. The version for the Avengers Assemble set certainly takes advantage of time-hopping abilities to basically get to wherever he wants. Also, once per game he can have everyone else on the board clear of action tokens, if they're lower point cost. Good times.

Paizo Releases Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Pathfinder Unchained

Paizo has released their new Pathfinder Unchained book for their beloved Pathfinder RPG. Unchained takes what you knows about Pathfinder and updates it. After years of working with the system, the designers felt things could use a bit of work. So they've taken several core classes and monsters and took them back to the drawing table and now present them anew. With new balances to just about every aspect of the game, from classes to combat to monster creation and spell casting (and other aspects that don't have a "c" in them), Unchained is sort of the "3.5" of the system.
