Year 2019

You have friends. You have enemies. And sometimes you have frenemies. You know, those people who are definitely working at odds to some of what you're doing, but are also nice to you and you're nice to them and you get along. Soon, you'll have all of those added to your Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Board Game sets. Jasco Games has announced Friends & Frenemies, a new expansion coming in June.

Flying Frog Productions is looking to get you a pair of new Shadows of Brimstone adventures, and they're taking to Kickstarter to get them funded. First, become a guardian of Asgard in Gates of Valhalla. Then, trek through a dark and dangrous swamp in Valley of the Serpent Kings.

Crime! Crime most foul! Evil is everywhere doing dirty deeds, and it's up to intrepid investigators to bring those responsible to justice. That's where you come in. You are those detectives who are looking for clues, tracking down leads, and chasing criminals in Grey Cells, a new mystery RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

Equipped with advanced cloaking and surveilance technology, the Sith Infiltrator on its own is a pretty sneaky ship. Add in some force-attuned pilots and it becomes all the more deadly. Soon, Separatist players will be able to add it to their fleets in X-Wing. Check out its stats and some of the upgrades in this preview.

WizKids has made some big team-ups lately, and they're still going. They've announced that they have now made a partnership with Hasbro. That means miniatures and other products for such lines as My Little Pony, G.I. Joe, and Transformers. They don't say exactly what form these miniatures will take, though.

Mythic Games has announced a new minis game they're working on. It's called Super Fantasy Brawl. Players will construct teams of legendary fighters and take to the arena floor to fight for honor, glory, and the love of the crowd. The game will be making its way to Kickstarter later this year.

Happy Games Factory is looking to bring a new faction to their Eden game. It's the Octopus Keepers... because why not? They also have the B.O.R.G. as a limited-edition starter set that you can pick up. They've got a Game On Tabletop campaign going on (a crowdfunding site) now that you can check out.

Everyone has at least some kind of voice in their head. Some inner monologue. At least, I know I do. Not necessarily the "the leprechaun says to burn it all down" type of thing. But just when you have your conversations with yourself. In Everyone is John, an RPG that's got a new edition up on Kickstarter, you don't play as individual characters, but different voices inside of John's head, each trying to get him to do what you want to do.

Sci-fi miniatures. Fantay RPG. I think it's time to have something a little different. Hmm, Sailor Moon Crystal Truth or Bluff party game. Yeah, that'll do it.

Dyskami Publishing has started taking pre-orders for their cute, new game over in their webshop.

"Post Content Goes Here."

Yes, I know, posting window. Post content goes here. But Monday just feels extra Monday-like today. I hope this isn't indicative of how the rest of the week will go.

Maybe some cool terrain will cheer me up some. It's worth a try, anyway.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Cruel Seas Lighthouses + Plume Packs and New Hive City Ventilation Shaft Available From Tabletop Scenics.

*sniffle* They grow up so fast!

In this case, we're talking about Shades of Vengeance and their sci-fi RPG, Era: The Consortium. The game is celebrating it's 5th year and they're running a Kickstarter campaign for it that includes a new version of the game along with new miniatures for it.

Warlord Games is heading to the lands of sci-fi and WWII in this set of releases and pre-orders. They've got some new Beyond the Gates of Antares kits, as well as some Blood Red Skies and Cruel Seas. Have yourself a look-see.

In Guild Ball, every team (except the Blacksmiths, because they have to be different like that) has a mascot that actually plays with them out on the field. For the Miner's Guild, that's Digger, the mole. In this preview, we get a look at just what the little tunneler is capable of.

For some of IDW's recent projects, they had announced that they were going to be working with Ninja Division. Now, many of you know the troubles that Ninja Division has had lately. In this regard, IDW has decided to update their relationship with the company and let you all know what's up.

Games Workshop has a new batch of releases up in their webshop for you to check out. You can order yourself new starter kits for the Idoneth Deepkin and Nurgle forces for Age of Sigmar. You can also get your name on the list for the new White Dwarf issue. Nothing quite like curling up with a good gaming magazine.

In the far-off reaches of space, the Kisrian Empire will hire just about anyone, regardless of their past, in order to be Interstellar Mercenaries in their service. But what these killers and thieves do in their spare time is plot against the Empire and one-another. And that's where you find yourself in InterStellar Mercenary, a new sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

There's still about a week left of February, the month of love. And that's about how much time is left in the Love's Labour's Liberated 5th Edition zine that's up on Kickstarter now. The project looks to bring more love-themed characters and items to your games.

Modiphius has a trio of releases for their City of Mist RPG. They're sort of the core heart of the game, being the Master of Ceremonies Toolkit, the Player's Guide, and an MC Screen, and they're all available as a pdf now, including a bundle deal. Go download your copies now.

For the folks over at ThreeGold Games, they want to get back to the roots of Space Opera. They want to let you tell the epic stories they know you want to tell, and have created Eisen Path, a new sci-fi rpg, with just that thought in mind. The core book for the game is up on Kickstarter now.

We've made it all the way to the eve of the weekend. Just gotta push through today and we'll be there. My plans are now slightly up in the air, as the person I was going to hang out with is feeling under the weather now. So, it might be a quiet weekend at home putting together minis for me, which isn't terrible. What've you got going on? Whatever it is, you should stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: I Will Never Grow Up to Run 25mm and 35mm Flight Stand Kickstarter, Elder Dice Announces Kickstarter Launch Date, Brigade Models New 6mm and Spaceship releases, and Zarglian Invader forces released at Grinning Skull Miniatures.

For their big events throughout the year, the folks at Battlefront like to create special objectives for the players to go after during their games. In this article, they show off the ones that'll be gracing tables in 2019. Have yourselves a look, as well as a schedule of where you can pick them up.

Knight Models is running a special webstore exclusive bundle deal for their Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game. If you want to dive right into the Wizarding War with some units for both sides, this is your opportunity to do so.

Who doesn't like getting something for nothing? Nobody, that's who. And Modiphius is currently giving you that something for nothing. They've put their Player's Guide for the Odyssey of the Dragonlords setting for Dungeons & Dragons up on their website for free. Go get yourself a copy now.

The Rebel Alliance is getting a boost today on the Star Wars: Legion battlefields. The Jyn Orso set, as well as the Rebel Pathfinders set, are both available now from Fantasy Flight. Fight back against the Imperial menace with stealth and cunning, striking from the shadows before heading back again.

Mind powers, Swede. Mind powers.

That's what you get with the latest trio of releases for Necromunda from Forge World. A Trio of Bounty Hunters with unique powers are available to order now. And as a bit of a Terrain Corner on a Friday, there's also several terrain kits that you can order for use with your Necromunda or other sci-fi minis games.
