NMBR 9 Now Available From Z-Man Games

I'm a huge fan of puzzle games. Blokus, Set, and Apotheca are three my absolute most-favorite games out there, for example. So I'm looking forward to getting a chance to try NMBR 9, the new tile-stacking game from Z-Man Games. Players are looking to place their number-shaped tiles on the stack, but there's very specific rules about how they can go. Get the high tile to score the most points. You can pick up your copy now.

Mob Mentality Party Card Game Up On Kickstarter

People in groups act in interesting ways. There's actually a whole field of study based on it. Some people know how to handle groups of people, figure out what they're thinking, and move them in certain directions (literally and metaphorically). It's trying to figure out what people are thinking and joining in that you'll be doing in Mob Mentality, a new party card game that's up on Kickstarter.

Rise of the Empire Expansion Available For Star Wars: Rebellion

The Empire has a new weapon to use against any system that dares oppose its rule. The Death Star is a massive space station that houses a weapon strong enough to destroy a planet. If the Rebellion hopes to continue on, they're going to have to get the plans for that thing and find a weakness. That's the story behind Rogue One, and now you can bring that to your games of Star Wars: Rebellion, as the Rise of the Empire expansion is now available.

Thursday Terrain Corner

Another month is coming to an end. August has been quite the month. Gen Con was simply amazing, as always. But as we move into September, with the temperature falling along with the leaves from the trees, we're entering my favorite time of the year.

While the GCPS isn't normally the ones headed into Deadzones, sometimes that's all that will work against whatever threat to humanity is to be found there. And keeping humans safe is what the GCPS is all about. Ever since the Mandrake Rebellion, they have redoubled their efforts to make sure the future is for humans. We get a look at this new faction in this preview that Mantic has posted up.

New Previews For Necromunda Posted

While I might personally have preferred Gorka-Morka (greenskin that I am), many people out there are excited for Necromunda, Games Workshop's other sci-fi skirmish miniatures game of gangs of thugs fighting against one-another. If you'd like a few more details about what you can expect from this new version, Warhammer Community has a new article up.

HeroClix: Undead Set Now Available

My current playlist I'm listening to (and have been for a couple weeks now) includes songs like Misfits - Halloween, Ministry - Everyday is Halloween, and The Cramps - Naked Girl Falling Down the Stairs (because if you're gonna write a song, write a damn song!). As you can tell from at least 2 out of those 3, I'm a fan of this time of year. Some people think it's too early for that stuff. But I certainly don't. And I think WizKids would agree, since they've just released their HeroClix: Undead set.

Dized Board Game App Up On Indiegogo

I think it's safe to say that if you're here on the site (or following us on Social Media), you're a fan of board games. However, learning a new game can, at times, be a bit of a chore. Even a good rulebook can sometimes leave you with questions. That's where Dized comes in. It's a new app that helps you learn board games while you play them. The campaign to fund the app is up on Indiegogo now.

Ogre Video Game In the Works

One of my first games I got into was Steve Jackson's Ogre. Heck, Ogre_Mk5 was a screen name I used for quite a long while. Well, there's an Ogre/G.E.V. video game in the works that accurately recreates not just that video-box game, but all of the Ogre minis world on the tabletop. They've got some sceenshots and a trailer video to check out.

Era: Balam Sci-Fi RPG Up On Kickstarter

I wish I could be a fighter pilot.
No, really. Back when I was a kid, that was near the top of my list of things I wanted to do. Unfortunately, I've got godawful eyes and so Top Gun academy was never really in my fates. But I can live vicariously through my RPGs. And what's better than a fighter pilot? A fighter pilot in space, of course! And that's just what you get to be in Era: Balam, a sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

It's already Wednesday. Is the week going by quickly for everyone else, too? It feels like it is for me, anyway. But being busy will do that, I suppose. If I'm going to keep up this pace, I should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Scandinavia and the World: A Heap of Trouble Card Game Up On Kickstarter

I read several webcomics. Some I've followed for quite some time. One that's been around and has quite a following is Scandinavia and the World. It's a humorous look at what countries would be like if they were people and how they'd interact with one-another. Now, they're making a card game. It's called A Heap of Trouble, and it's about getting what those countries want the most, if they're able. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
