Drinkagon Strategic Drinking Game Up On Kickstarter

As I saw first-hand yesterday, people like to get together and play games (shocking, I know!). And when doing such, they also often like to imbibe alcohol (always responsibly, of course). Now, being a teetotaler, myself, I don't quite get the "alcohol" thing, but others seem to think it's a hoot. Combine drinking and gaming and you've got a Drinking Game. One such, Drinkagon, is up on Kickstarter now.

Hind & Seek Miniatures Game Rules Released

Afghanistan has a pretty long history of conflict. For around a decade, it was the Russians that were trying to go in and take over the place. It didn't turn out so well for them. But how did a technologically-superior group have such issues? Well, you can find out in Hind & Seek, a new set of rules that recreates the Soviet-Afghan war of 1979-1989. The book is available now.

Samhain Board Game Up On Kickstarter

The Romans. They're one of history's most prolific conquerors. But they certainly met with a fair share of resistance from those they were looking to enlighten with civilization (or "enlighten" with "civilization," depending on which side of the Loricae Segmentata you were on). In Samhain, the Romans are looking to conquer the Celts, and the Celts are looking to resist. Which side of the pilum will you be on? The game is up on Kickstarter now.
