Year 2018


Review Roundup

Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
Saturday night's alright for fightin'. Get a little action in.

Yes, it's Saturday, and while it's not night quite yet (at least, where I am at time of posting), that doesn't mean that it's not time for fighting. Though I'm not actually swinging my own fists around. It's my character in D&D. I hope you're out there swingin', too, be it with an RPG character or toy soldiers or on a video screen. Whatever your fight du-jour might be. I know you're here for some reviews, so let's dive into those.

Today we have: Tiny Epic Mechs, Creature Forge Overwhelming Swarm, Waterdeep Dragon Heist D&D Minis, Tyranny of Dragons D&D Minis, Ravage: Dungeons and Plunder, Minerva, and Cat Lady.

Tales of the Old Margreve: 5th Edition Forest Adventures Up On Kickstarter

Tales of the Old Margreve is more than just an adventure module. It's a whole tome of material that can take characters all the way from Level 1 to Level 10 in 5th Edition. And if players want to really specialize and work with the setting, there's even a Player's Guilde that will give them new options like races, sub-classes, and other such things. The Old Margreve is a huge enchanted forest, very ancient, that will protect itself rom all outside intrusion. Of course, being adventurers, you're going to intrude. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Friday Snippets

Mmmm, Friday. I don't know about you, but I'm planning on relaxing this evening with some pizza and maybe put together some models. Maybe play some Sims 4. Then, tomorrow, go play D&D most of the day and then just hang out with friends afterward. I hope your weekend is just as good as mine is shaping up to be. But before we get there, let's nibble on a couple bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Kraken Dice Buy 3 Get 1 Free Sale Ends This Weekend and New SF Roman Praetorian Centurion Available From Scibor.

Forge World Taking Pre-Orders For Kria the Huntress and the Bittersweet Blades

You'd think that shooting someone square in the chest at point-blank range with a shotgun would put them out of the fight. And, for the most part, you'd be right, save horror movies and the 40k universe. That's just what happened to Kria Kytoro, but the House Escher alchymyst fleshteks weren't gonna let her go to waste. They made her stronger, faster, better, and she's hitting the battlefield again in her new form as Kria the Huntress. You can order yours for Necromunda from the Forge World webshop now.

Boba Fett and Imperial Scout Troops Now Available For Star Wars: Legion

A fan favorite character (again, despite him not really doing much of anything in the movie) and a set of troopers (mostly known for crashing into trees) are now available for Star Wars: Legion. Let's hope that they do better for you on the tabletop than they actually did up on the silver screen there. Boba Fett and the Imperial Scout Troopers boxes can be picked up at your LGS and online now.

Rodent Rangers RPG Up On Kickstarter

I feel there's a pretty high probability that you've seen a movie where talking rodents, probably mice, go on an adventure or some some type of mystery or solve some type of huge problem. It's a rather ubiquitous genre. With Rodent Rangers, you don't have to just watch that happen on your TV screen. You can bring it to your tabletops and become the rodent you were always meant to be. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Age of Myth: Ancient World Supplement for 5th Edition Up On Kickstarter

The ancient world is filled with all sorts of myths and legends. Many of these are in Dungeons & Dragons already, but with a more fantasy-twist on them. Age of Myth, a new supplement for the game that's up on Kickstarter now, looks to bring them back to their original roots, along with creating just an overall world more akin to that like the stories were created originally.

Renegade Game Studios Previews Spell Smashers

Language is a battlefield. I'm out here slaying words all day. It's not easy. Occasionally, I just run out of good words and have to use whatever I've got laying around. That's kinda what you're doing in Spell Smashers. Players must use their letter cards to create words and defeat monsters, gaining more letters to use. However, if you take wounds, those manifest as uncommon letter combinations. It's a bit Scrabble. It's a bit dungeon crawl. It's also coming in November.

Project L Puzzle Game Up On Kickstarter

I'm a big fan of puzzle games. There's just something about trying to get your mind around the abstract shapes and patterns and make something out of what seems initially like chaos. Project L is just such a game. Players have a group of different shapes and cards they're trying to match. It's a bit like Tangrams, for those that remember those, but with more than just "match shapes" put into it. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
