Mantic Games Announces Here's Negan Board Game

In The Walking Dead, the zombies are often not the scariest or most dangerous things around. The still-living are often much more evil. Such is the case with Negan. In the new game Here's Negan, coming from Mantic Games, players take on the role of Negan's lieutenants in the early days of his reign. They must clear out the Sanctuary, making it safe... err... well, "safe" for those that want to stay there.

Simulation Theory Board Game Coming to Kickstarter

There are all manner of hypotheses about the nature of the universe. One of them is that it's not really real. It's just a very intricate, very detailed, very complex computer simulation.

It's amazing what can be done with 3D printing these days. Up until seeing this campaign, I didn't realize you could 3D print with wood. That's still kinda blowing my mind.

Plaid Hat Games Announces Neon Gods Board Game

You know, back in the 70s and 80s, we had a much different idea of what the 2000s were going to be like. I mean, we're less than a year and a half from 2020, and yet, I don't think baseball is going to be like Super Baseball 2020 that I used to play on my Super Nintendo. But what if it was much more like that? The neon, the corporate takeovers, the flying cars, the gang warfare? That's the future that Plaid Hat Games sets their Neon Gods board game in.
