Year 2019


There's going to be a lot of questions when an ocean suddenly vanishes. Vast new areas of land are exposed for exploration. And then, of course, there's just trying to find out what happened to all the water. That's just what your players will be trying to figure out in Beneath the Missing Sea, a new RPG adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.

Having options for your character is what every player in an RPG wants. That's exactly what Starfinder players are getting with the Character Operations Manual. New classes, new options for existing classes, new feats, new spells, new equipment, new roles for starship combat. It's got a bit of everything. This isn't one to miss.

A couple years ago, Age of Sigmar totally redid the world of fantasy Warhammer. Well, now, we're getting some nostalgia back again as Warhammer: The Old World has been announced. Details are still thin on the ground, but it's definitely going to be something to pay attention to going forward.

Games will always be growing and evolving. Even if something's playtested a bunch, when it gets out into player's hands, there might be things that they find that don't work as intended. That's where updates come in. That's what we've got here from WizKids. They've taken a look at HeroClix Skirmish and have posted an update to the rules.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

Yes, it's the Giant Robot Alert going off for the new Forge World items on order this week. There's a Dreadnaught body, a couple sets of Dreadnaught weapons, and even a complete Dread if you want to just buy everything all at once. Let's take a look.

Sure, it's raining outside, but I wouldn't say that it's a particularly "black Friday." But that doesn't matter so much, since the saying's less about the weather and more about keeping your budget in the black by giving you deep discounts on things. Battlefront has launched their Black Friday sale over in their webshop.

Discuss

Thanksgiving is still just under 2 weeks away, but Warlord Games is already jumping on the Black Friday bandwagon (they're not even the first, so why not?). You can head over to their webshop and pick up all sorts of great deals now. And hey, it's still plenty early so you can get your figures shipped before the holidays. But you'll need to hurry.

Discuss

The super heroes and super villains are hitting the streets. Fights are breaking out and it's chaos. Will it be the heroes that save the day? Or will the villains finally take over? That's up to you to decide in Marvel: Crisis Protocol, now available from Atomic Mass Games (already seen some pictures of my friends in other countries that've picked it up already. I'm not envious... I don't know what you're talking about...).

Discuss

In Smash Up, players crash together two factions and create something strong out of the team-up. Well, the game is now a representation of real life because AEG and The Op Games (aka - USAopoly) are teaming up and they will be releasing new factions for the wild card game.

Discuss

Rome's armies fought in many locations against many diverse foes. In Clash of Spears, you can recreate those conflicts. March across North Africa. Head deep into the wilds of Eastern Europe. Venture up the British Isles. Clash of Spears is a new tactical wargame that's up on Kickstarter now.

We've been seeing this little mousie for quite some time. He seems to be the poster-mammal for Aftermath, the new adventure book game coming soon from Plaid Hat Games. Well, now we know a bit more about him. Hisname's Meziah and he's sort of the de-facto leader of the group. See what all he's capable of in this preview.

The week's almost over. We're getting there, anyway. Today and tomorrow and then the weekend! ... No clue what I'll be doing, but it'll be the weekend. Maybe I'll go get some Hot Pot again. We'll see. I'm kind of obsessed with it these days. But before I do that, I need to get you some terrain.

Today we have: Prepainted Fantasy Terrain Available From Deep-Cut Studio, Fallout Corvega Coupe Available From Modiphius, and Terrains4Games Opens Etsy Shop.

The Genesys RPG system was designed to be system agnostic. That means that it wasn't specifically tied to a fantasy or sci-fi or horror realm. Players could just take the rules and use them as a framework around which they built whatever style of game they wanted. Well, in the upcoming Expanded Player's Guide, Fantasy Flight is providing help with fleshing out your worlds. Get a look at how that'll operate in this preview.

Discuss

I don't want to go into the ocean. Look, we know more about the surface of the moon than we know about the ocean depths. I'm not saying that the Salty Seadevil, coming soon for Malifaux, -does- live out there and if I were to go swimming just once that it would drag me under, but I'm not saying that it defintely -doesn't- exist either.

Technology is becoming more and more a part of our everyday lives. I mean, I work online for heaven's sake. The digital is coming more into the world of the real in board games with Days of Wonder's announcement of Alexa skills for Ticket to Ride. Now, you can simply have your Amazon assistant run you through a game. No more rulebook required.

Discuss

The Judge Dredd Miniatures Game takes players into the mean streets of Mega City One. Will you roll with the Judges, looking to bring justice?

In this preview, we get a little look at the system, the factions, as well as the campaign system that will be coming with the game's release.

Discuss

Corvus Belli's Infinity: Defiance game takes players into the Infinity universe in a whole new way. The players are traveling aboard the Defiance, an interstellar space ship. We've seen a bit about what they do while aboard, but what else are they capable of doing? There's going to be down-time between missions, so what happens then? We get a look at that information in this article.

On Cocos Island, a fabulous treasure has been buried. It's been split into two locations, and everyone is looking to find it. Of course, "finders keepers" is the treasure-hunter world. But with everyone looking for it, it's going to be the fastest that gets the gold. At least, that's what's happening in Loot of Lima, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

While the world might be warming up now, there's always a chance, far into the future, that we might hit another ice age. At least, that's what's happening in D.E.I. - Divide et Impera, a new strategy board game from Ludus Magnus Studio that's up on Kickstarter now. Resources are scarce and it's up to you to collect the rest of it for your survivor faction.

Half the week's gone. Half left to go. Of course, and as always, I'm excited for the weekend. I hope you are too. It's pretty cold here in Atlanta, and I know it is across much of North America. I hope you're all keeping warm, maybe snuggle up under a warm, fuzzy blanket with some tasty treats and a cup of cocoa. But even if you're all nice and warm already, it's good to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Great Hammers Available From Puppets War, Dragon Pattern Legion Shoulder Pads Available from Kromlech, and Two New Dice Sets Coming From Kraken Dice.
