The Grizzled: At Your Orders Coming Later This Year

Last year CMON Inc. brought us the English version of The Grizzled, a WWI-themed card game of squad survival. It's right in my wheelhouse for favorite types of games, as it's quick to set up and play, has some cool artwork, and the theme being WWI I really like. Well, now I'm going to be able to get even more, as CMON Inc will be publishing the expansion, At Your Orders, for US audiences.

Monday Terrain Corner

I hope everyone's Monday is going well and nobody has "a case of the Mondays." One way to beat the Monday Blues is to talk about gaming (or so I've found, anyway). All the stories of what happened over the weekend, recounting epic adventures, or fantasy sports matches, or wizard battles can help keep those blues at bay. (Lost my game of Warmachine, won a game of Ascension, and was ahead when time was called in Guild Ball) And where there's gaming, there's usually terrain. Let's get into it with our Terrain Corner spot.

Today we have: New Dwarven Forge Kickstarter Coming March 6th, Sea of Flames Added to Dungeon Worlds Kickstarter, Manorhouse Workshop Update #14 – The Abbey of the Living Dead, and Dark Swamp: Pwork Wargames fantasy gaming mat Now Available.

For those that have been watching, I've been talking a lot about Guild Ball lately. It's a game I've been keeping track of since I first started seeing artwork coming out for it.

Well, the kind fellows over at Steamforged are coming out with a new Guild for the game and have given me a bit of artwork they'd like me to show you.

New Add-Ons For Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia on Kickstarter

Watch It Played, for those that don't know, is a YouTube channel that, well... it's sort of right there in the name, but it's a channel devoted to showing gamers how to play many of the great games that exist in our hobby. Rodney Smith has been running the channel for several years and many of his videos feature his son, Luke (who is known to just have "the touch" when it comes to getting dice to work in his favor). Well, Luke's now getting his own figure for Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia.

Darklight: Memento Mori Board Game Up On Kickstarter

When you want to play some role-playing games, sometimes you can't find someone to be the DM/GM. That can be a real pain.

Well, Darklight: Memento Mori is just such a dungeon crawl board game and it's up on Kickstarter now looking for funding love.

Donald Trumps Card Game on Kickstarter

We try and keep things a-political here on TGN. You can be a member of the Whig Party or the Know-nothing Party and still be able to sit down and game together. (Personally, my vote is for Pat Paulsen) But in this election year here in the US, there's been several card games that have poked fun at our political process as well as the candidates. Well, this time around one candidate gets his own game. Donald Trumps the card game is up on Kickstarter now.

Ironwatch Games Releases The Star-Struck City

Ironwatch is branching out from their fan magazine base and has released their first game. It's called Star-Struck City. And by "Star-Struck" it's really more "meteor-struck" but since those are often called "shooting stars" it still does kinda fit but... you know, I'll stop being so pedantic and just get on with telling you about the game.

Wastelanders: 2048 Card Game Relaunch on Kickstarter

You gotta eat.
That's just the simple matter of it. I mean, I guess there's those "liquid only" diets and such, but they're not really a long-term solution, especially in a post-apocalyptic situation. I doubt those shakes are going to be in high supply. You're gonna have to go out there and find food. That's the struggle before you in Wastelanders: 2048, which as relaunched on Kickstarter.

Friday Snippets

Hold tight, people. We're almost there. We've come too far to give up now... Though I'm not sure how you could give up on "time moving forward" and just decide to quit it (without talking about time dilation or other, less-than-savory topics. O,o). Anyway, it's Friday and that means we're at the gateway to the weekend. Best to gather supplies in the form of some bite-sized stories.

Today's snippets includes: Symbaroum Being Translated Into French, DGS Games Previews Sunbringer for Traazorites on Kickstarter, Siren Miniatures Troublemaker Bundle Available Now, Hitechminiatures new releases, Khurasan releases 15mm Afghan Mujahideen/Taliban, and New Panzerschreck team.

New Releases Available For Guild Ball

I'm hoping to get my first full Guild Ball games in tomorrow. It'll be "Battle of the Proteins" since I've got the Butcher's Guild and the Fisherman's Guild. Heh, whomever wins should decide what I have for dinner. "Well, Fishermen won 12-8, so it's the broiled salmon." Well, the two new releases don't work for those two guilds, but that doesn't mean we can't be excited about them.

Come with me if you want to get some new miniatures for your Terminator: Genisys armies. And really, you don't even have to come with me. You can sit right there. You just have to read on.

There's some new figures available for Terminator: Genisys, as well as Warlord Games posting the rules and FAQ online.

In today's Terrain Corner we got a look at some new terrain pieces specifically designed for Infinity. Well, if you've got terrain for Infinity, you might as well have some miniatures for Infinity.
