Year 2018


Review Roundup

Ah, Saturday. The start of the weekend. For many of us here in the states, though, it's an hour shorter. To be honest, I already went ahead and moved my clocks ahead an hour. It's not like I've got anything other than this scheduled for the day. I mean, It's Saturday!
But I also need to get you these reviews.

Today we have: Dead Throne, Draconis Invasion, 7 Ghosts, Robin Hood and the Merry Men, Secret Unknown Stuff: Escape from Dulce, Flip and Find’s Diner, Welcome to Centerville, Master of Orion: Conquest, Codenames: Duet, Portal of Heroes, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time, and Felicity.

I have friends all over the world. I'm sure most of you do, too. The Internet connects us with people from everywhere, instantly.

They've teamed up with Wizards of the Coast and are releasing official Dungeons & Dragons modules on their platform. You can get the Princes of the Apocalypse module now.

Alas Vegas RPG Now Available

We all know of stories of Kickstarters that funded, but then the person behind it seems to vanish. Delivery dates are missed. Updates come slower and slower. Many backers write the product off as lost...
Thankfully, that's not the case with Alas Vegas. Despite having funded nearly 5 years ago, the game has been sent to backers and is now available.

The Awful Orphanage Adds Alyce to Their Lineup of Miniatures

One thing that sets Kickstarters apart from just buying a game regularly is the amount of exclusives and promos you can end up with. Some Kickstarters even throw in special extras if you join in early. That's what they're doing with The Awful Orphanage. Those that sign up within the first 24 hours will get an exclusive Alyce miniature as part of their pledge.

In a remote spot in Northern Europe, druids and witches are all looking to control a set of powerful artifacts. However, each of these items will only be wielded by a single master.

Stones Break Bones Card Game Up On Kickstarter

"Sticks and Stones may break my Bones, but words will leave me with regret and doubt about myself as an individual and a scarred psyche..."
Whoah, that got dark fast... I think I need something a bit more light-hearted. At least the sticks bit is straight-forward, as is stones. Stones Break Bones. Oh, hey, that's also the name of a card game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Knight Models Switches To Pre-Order Instead of Kickstarter

Usually, we're all about telling you a new Kickstarter will be launching soon. And for Knight Model's Harry Potter game, we'd done just that. However, we're now here to tell you that the Kickstarter's been cancelled. But the game hasn't. Instead of a Kickstarter campaign, Knight Models is going directly to pre-orders starting next week on the 14th.

TGN Review: The Bestiary of Equestria

I’m an unabashed fan of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series. I’ve seen all the way through Season 7. I’ve got the movie on Blu-Ray. And I’ve done multiple reviews for the Tails of Equestria products in the past. So, it seems only fitting that I continue on. I recently managed to get a Bestiary of Equestria, a book I’d been eagerly anticipating getting for a while, due to what’s been said to be inside. Did it live up to my expectations?

So, grab your favorite Wonderbolt hat, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s The Bestiary of Equestria for the Tails of Equestria RPG from River Horse Games.

Mage Company Announces Cesare Borgia Board Game Coming Q4 This Year

When many of us think of the Renaissance, we think of great works of art and architecture, maybe some famous pieces of sculpture. But, you know, it wasn't exactly the most peaceful time in world history, either. Various houses vied for supremacy, and many of those famous artists and sculptors were commissioned for their military minds as much as their artistic talents. The Borgias are certainly ones that had their thumb on many other houses via bribery, intrigued, and outright use of arms. And it's into this part of the Renaissance that you find yourself in Cesare Borgia, a new board game coming from Mage Company later this year.

Forge World Taking Pre-Orders For Constantin Valdor For 40k

Back when I was a janitor at KSU, the guy in charge was Frank. He gave us our orders for the day. Which offices were we supposed to clean. Which areas needed what done to them.

USAopoly Previews Thanos Rising - Avengers: Infinity War

The Infinity Stones are items of extreme power. When the six are brought together, the power given to the one that controls them is god-like. So, it's best to not let that happen.

Privateer Press Announces the Return of Monsterpocalypse

I remember one of my first Gen Cons was the one where Monsterpocalypse was released. Man, that thing sold like gangbusters. People were buying multiple cases at a time, wanting to build up their armies. Then, well... it died away. But like any good monster, you can't keep it down forever. Privateer Press has announced that the game will be coming back this fall.
