Year 2020

A major new expansion for Twilight Imperium is coming soon from Fantasy Flight. It's called Prophecy of Kings and it will greatly increase your options in games. Starting out there's 7 new factions be
With Gen Con going online, everyone's able to participate in the great deals and specials that companies are running this weekend. Japanime Games is included in that group, and so you can head over an

With Gen Con Online happening, there's a bunch of announcements going out, and Fantasy Flight is wasting no time with some big ones. For starters, they've got 6 new expansion sets coming for X-Wing. I
With 3D printers becoming more widespread, the ability to create entire miniatures games and sell them to players for very small costs, letting the players simply print out the minis themselves has be

There's a new edition of a classic board game up on Kickstarter. It's Tutankhamun, and it puts players on the Nile River, looking to collect tiles and score points. This new edition has updated rules
Paizo loves to give you new content whenever they come out with new releases (beyond just the release itself, of course). In this case, they have a new encounter for Starfinder that will use their new

Forbidden Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their next game in the popular Raccoon Tycoon board game series. It's called Lizard Wizard and it takes the action and excitement from Raccoon T
For many of us, Ctrl is just a key on your keyboard you rarely use (though I'm using it all the time. As I'm sure many of you that are artists do as well). But now, it's something all of us can use al
The lands of the north are sparsely populated. Only little hamlets exist surrounded by huge areas of wilderness. This isolation and desolation breeds stories of strange things out there in the dark. H
This year's Gen Con is unique in that everyone with an internet connection can go. It certainly saves on travel and hotel expenses, that's for sure. But while we're not all descending upon downtown In
The week's half over already. And I just realized that we're 2 days from the end of the month. Did July just evaporate for you? Because I feel like it simply evaporated for me. I feel like the 4th of
