Z-Man Games Previews the Terrain in Fey

The druids are headed to the magical forest in order to perform their ceremonies and rituals. But not everything in the forest as it seems (it is a magical forest, after all) and some spots are better for a ceremony than others. The druids will want to stick to the more blessed areas, and leave the cursed ones far behind. But trying to figure out which is which and successfully navigating through can be tricky. Good thing we get this preview here for Fey from Z-Man Games.

Dual Powers: Revolution 1917 Board Game Up On Kickstarter

The Czar and his family were out, and the proletariat were in. In Dual Powers: Revolution 1917, players will vie for control of the runaway train that was the Communist uprising. Will they be able to maintain control, or will they get run over? The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Eye for an Eye launches on Kickstarter April 24th

“Downtime” is a term in gaming that refers to when a player has little to nothing to do.
