Midweek Snippets

Well, we're here on Wednesday. Or is it Friday, since I won't be in the office tomorrow? Either way, you're getting a Snippets post!

As with the other "aggregate posts" of the past couple days, it's a bit of a small grouping today, so it's like a bite-size snippet where we bring you bite-sized stories. It's an homage to Inception like that... yeah... We'll go with that.

Anyway, today's stories include: New Legionary Thunder Gun with side-barrel Magma Rifle From Kromlech, Final Hours for Tales of Arcana: Roleplaying Card Game On Kickstarter, and Final Hours of Slavic Fantasy Miniatures Kickstarter.

Nemo's War: Second Edition Up On Kickstarter

Dive! Dive! Dive!
*aoooooga! aooooooga!*
You know, it doesn't take a video console in order to play some games by yourself. It doesn't take a poker deck of cards, either. There are lots of good single-player board games out there. Nemo's War is one of them, and Victory Point Games is looking to revamp and update its look with a second edition that's up on Kickstarter now.

WizKids Previews Marvel HeroClix: Sinister Six OP

As the new year grows ever-closer, it's time to start thinking about tourneys and events coming up in the next month or so. WizKids is always big on having special Organized Play kits for game shops and league organizers to use to reward those that make it out to the various events. Next up for them is a bit of wall-crawling, as they've got a Sinister Six Organized Play kit coming up, and today, we get a look at three villains in it.

Podcast Roundup

So, like last week, this is a short one for me. So, a way, it's Tuesday (being the 2nd day of the work week). In a way, it's Wednesday (being the middle day of the work week). In another way, it's Thursday (the penultimate day of the work week). Though considering we have a Podcast Roundup, it's more ways Tuesday than it is either Wednesday or Thursday.

As for that Podcast Roundup, much like yesterday's Terrain Corner, we've only got one story in the pack. It seems that along with the gaming companies, the podcasters are taking a bit of a break as well during these couple weeks. It's alright. I certainly can't blame them.

20th Anniversary Edition of Pokemon Card Game Coming

Corvus Belli isn't the only company celebrating a momentous anniversary year for their game. How many of you knew that the Pokemon Card Game has been around for 20 years? Yeah, as surprised as I was to hear that Infinity had been around for a decade, I was just as surprised to think that Pokemon had been around for twice that time. Well, it has, and they're coming out with a 20th anniversary version of the game.

Corvus Belli Creating Limited Edition Achilles Figures for Infinity

It's amazing how fast time goes by. Sometimes you think, "oh hey, I thought that game just came out" when you realize it's been around for a decade already. Not to say that I constantly think that Infinity just came out, but I'd not realized that it'd been a decade since the sci-fi skirmish game made it to store shelves. Well, it has, and Corvus Belli is celebrating with special edition versions of Achilles.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews the Ardus Ix’Erebus Lieutenant Pack for Descent

Those pesky undead. They seem to show up at the most inopportune times. And not all are created equal. While most of us gamers might look at a skeleton, even one in some armor, and go, "Meh, it's just a skeleton." That'd be a very dangerous thing to do when it comes to Ardus Ix'Erebus for Descent. He's getting his own Lieutenant Pack and today Fantasy Flight Games is giving us a look inside it.

Days of Wonder Releases Five Tribes Solo Rules

So, this past week, instead of heading to St. Louis to visit my family, I was rained in, and instead spent several days at home, alone in my apartment. I can't really say it was the best way to spend the holiday, but I did get some solo gaming time in. Too bad these Solo Rules for Five Tribes weren't out yet. However, in case of the next time travel plans get ruined...

MAGE Company goes digital

Mage Company is teaming up with the fellows from Tabletopia to bring you their board games to digital space. Having board games on your tablet is a great way to play while on vacation or during other such trips, since there's no cards or dice or plastic pieces to accidentally lose under the hotel bed or car seat.

Work-in-Progress: Doctor Who Miniatures Game – Zygon

I hope everyone enjoyed the Dr. Who Christmas Special this year. I... haven't actually seen it. But I have a lot of friends that all watch Dr. Who religiously. Seemed this one was quite a thing. Don't worry, no spoilers. Anyway, for those that are looking forward to the Dr. Who Minis Game, Warlord Games posted up a new preview.

Monday Terrain Corner

One short week after another. Back in the office today after a rainy Christmas spent alone in my apartment. Hopefully this coming week will be a bit more cheery. With any luck, the rain won't cancel out any New Year's plans like it did for Christmas. We'll just have to see, though.

As many companies are still on vacation for the holiday (or "on holiday for the holiday," for you British readers out there), it's a quick Terrain Corner for you today.

Heroic Maps has released their The Ice Queen's Palace Storeys Set and has it on sale for $1 for the rest of the year.

Trollish Delver Games Releases Somnium Void Setting for USR

I do not believe that we are alone in the galaxy (and certainly not in the universe). However, I don't think that little, green men are buzzing us, picking up people out in the country, and "probing" them. I do wish, though, that a flying saucer would land itself right in the middle of Central Park in New York and say, "Hey, humanity, there's a whole galaxy worth of stuff you should see." I'd be one of the first in line to take off again for the stars with them. But until that day happens, I just have to play pretend. Thankfully, Trollish Delver Games is happy to help in that endeavor with the release of their Somnium Void setting book for the Unbelievably Simple Roleplaying (USR) system.

Spartan Games Taking Pre-Orders for New Releases

2016 or bust!
Or in the case of Spartan Games, "2016 for busts!"
They've started taking pre-orders for the new models they'll have available on January 27th of next year, and included in the group are a new set of busts for the Halo Fleet Battles game. There's more than that, of course. To see exactly what, read on.

CitiesUp Board Game Now On Kickstarter

I remember when I first got SimCity on my Super Nintendo. It was cool to build a city, trying to make the population as big as possible, and make sure that the citizens were happy. But, being a single-player game, it wasn't something I really could enjoy with someone else. The only competition was with the game, itself. Well, Spectacled Bear Games is looking to raise some Kickstarter funds for CitiesUp, which is sort of like SimCity if you added in extra players.

Warlord Games Bad Santa Sale Happening Now

So Santa might not be perfect. He doesn't always bring you actually what you asked for. It happens (to some people more than others). But you maybe got some money from grandma or that one aunt you've not seen in 3 years or you returned some of those other gifts and you've got a couple bucks in your pocket. Well, Warlord Games is gonna help you get something you hopefully did want with their Bad Santa Christmas Sale.
