Your Family Rocks Card Game Up On Kickstarter

There’s dozens, and probably hundreds of card games out there. But Your Family Rocks is the one that’s totally personalized to you and your family. Instead of just generic cards of random pictures, you send in your own family album and the cards are created from there! A great way to relive memories with loved ones while playing a game all around the table. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Review Roundup

It’s very early on Saturday morning. Well, not as early as it was when I first got up (Now: 6am. Woke up: 3am). I’d love to know why, on weekdays, my brain is all, “man, I dun wanna get up!” while on the weekend it’s like, “3am, homebear. Be awake now!” Maybe I’m just so excited about D&D today. I guess we can go with that. But while I get ready for all the things I’m gonna do today, I also need to get you your reviews I know you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Go Nuts for Doughnuts, Sushi Go!, Bamboleo, Cry Havoc: Aftermath, Down in Flames: WWII-Guns Blazing, Gaslands, Dinosaur Island, Dr. Beaker, and Crusader Kings.

You know, there’s times to be subdued and subtle. Then there’s times to be over-the-top and way loud and crazy. Deck of Justice is a time where you’re over-the-top and loud and crazy. It’s a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter where you and your opponent fight it out in ridiculously contrived fights until only one is left standing.

Renegade Games Taking Pre-orders For Fireworks

Most cats I know really aren’t fans of fireworks. However, some have taken a shining to them. So much so that they’ve started creating their own fireworks displays (they’re very industrious cats). They’re looking to start out small with their displays, but as they learn, they hope to get more and more elaborate with their shows. That’s the story behind Fireworks, a new game coming this September from Renegade Game Studio.

Drawlab Running Witless Wizards Card Game Kickstarter

As you get older, the memory of things you learned long ago tend to fade. And we all know that our muscles don’t respond the way they used to. Hard to do those triple-backflips in your 80s. After more than a couple lifetime’s of studies, even great wizards start to lose it. But that’s also when they get together to prove who’s the best. And that’s what you’ll be doing in Witless Wizards, a new card game from Drawlab that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Plaid Hat Games Previews Shadow Clan for Crystal Clans

There are plenty of people out there that are afraid of the dark. There’s generally nothing to worry about it. That bump was nothing. That creek was also nothing. That blood-curdling scream and disembodied children’s laughter was also nothing.
In this preview, we get a look at the Shadow Clan for Crystal Clans.

AEG Announces Thunderstone Quest Kickstarter Launch Date

Android NetRunner Coming to an End

I know we don’t do much in terms of Living Card Games here on TGN. Or not-stand-alone card games, of any form, but still, I wanted to post this one up, as I did when the game was announced. Fantasy Flight Games is closing down their Android: NetRunner game. I’m saddened by this, as NetRunner is my favorite card game that’s existed. And it’s a bit of a could’ve/would’ve/should’ve for me, as I’d not been keeping up with the game as I’d really wanted to. But there was always kind of that thought that I’d jump into it. Well, that probably won’t be the case. Sure, I could pick up cards probably for cheap now, but finding players is always the most difficult thing, and most people aren’t excited to play a dead game.

Fantasy Flight Announces Heroes of Terrinoth Card Game

Those dungeons aren’t going to delve themselves. Those goblins aren’t going to just stop raiding the local towns. Those monsters aren’t just going to decide they don’t want to smash everything in existence. Those evil wizards aren’t going to suddenly decide to not take over the world. That’s why Terrinoth needs heroes. And that’s just what you’ll become in Heroes of Terrinoth, a new cooperative card game coming from Fantasy Flight Games.

Plaid Hat Games Previews Shadow Clan For Crystal Clans

Carpe Omnis Games Announces No Honor Among Thieves Card Game

What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine. That’s the code of the thieves. If anything’s able to be taken, it should be. Sure, they might band together in order to get into someplace none could, individually, but at the end of the day, he who gets away with the most loot is the winner, as long as everyone doesn’t get caught. That’s what’s going on in No Honor Among Thieves, a new card game coming from Carpe Omnis Games.

Face off in this head-to-head cards and dice game, that’s exclusively up on Kickstarter now.

Plaid Hat Games Previews Fang Clan For Crystal Clans

Well, I mean, just shy of a bear clan, I would want to be part of the puppy clan in Crystal Clans. Though I’m not entirely sure the Fang Clan appreciates being called the puppy clan… maybe they’d be ok with doggo clan? I don’t know. But these clan members are more than the happy scrappy hero pups, they’re wolf warriors, and we get a preview of them here today.

Get the Shinies Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Many insects out there have shiny carapaces that make them look like little jewels.

That’s where you find yourself in Get the Shinies, a new family card game that’s up on Kickstarter now.

The Mind Coming This July

Pandasaurus Games is coming out with a game called The Mind. In it, players are trying to play a set of cards in the correct order. However, nobody is allowed to talk to one-another. So, how does one communicate? That’s up to the cards to decide. If you know anyone in the gaming industry, you know that this is a game that’s been getting all the buzz about it. But when can the regular Joe’s get a copy? July, with a few to be sold at Origins, if you can make it there.

Absolutism Party Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Unfortunately, that’s where you’ve found yourself in Absolutism, a new party card game up on Kickstarter. But, like any society faced with such problems, they’ll come up with solutions. That’s your goal in the game, to come up with solutions to problems. But these aren’t your average, everyday problems and will require more than your average, every-day solution.

Forsaken Forest: Revival Up On Kickstarter

It’s always good when companies listen to their customers. How better to find out what they want than to simply go, “what do you want?” and being receptive to the answers? Well, Forsaken Games has listened to the people backing their Forsaken Forest Kickstarter and decided there were enough good ideas that they cancelled their previous campaign and have started up a new one for Forsaken Forest: Revival.

Kitten Casualty – The Remastered Edition Up On Kickstarter

It’s not just older games that can sometimes use a freshening up. Relatively recent ones can, too. Take, for example, Kitten Casualty. It’s still a young one, games-speaking, but they’ve got a Remastered Edition up on Kickstarter now for you to check out.
… Yeah, I used up my Misfits quote with the “it’s coming to Kickstarter post” and didn’t think I could get by with using it again, as much as I wanted to.

The King Of Party Card Game Up On Kickstarter

There’s a lot of party card games out there. Most of them are for a bit more adult crowd. The King Of party card game, however, is safe to bring out with kids and grandparents present.

Renegade Game Studio Announces Clank! In! Space! Apocalypse!

A couple weeks ago at the Game Day up at the Library near here, I got to watch a game of Clank! In! Space!. I actually really liked the game. It’s a deck builder. It’s a board game. It’s a deck builder AND a board game! I have been thinking of getting a copy for myself. Now, I see that Renegade Game Studio is coming out with an expansion, Clank! In! Space! Apocalypse!. Now I’m definitely interested.

Sprawlopolis City-Building Game Up On Kickstarter

Driving around town, I’m sure most of us feel that the city planners had no idea what the hell they were doing. Why put that road there? What’s with that shopping mall at that spot?

WizKids Announces Maiden’s Quest

That’s what’s happening in Maiden’s Quest, a new game coming from WizKids.

Bitcon Cards: Lose All Your Money Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Cryptocurrency.
Honestly, all I know about it I learned from John Oliver. So I’m not really one to try and discuss it. However, after playing Bitcon Cards: Lose All Your Money, we all might just be experts in how they work. The game is a new card game up on Kickstarter now. Originally created as a joke, it eventually evolved to be a somewhat accurate simulation of how these transactions actually take place.

Review Roundup

It’s Saturday and I’m finally playing in our second session of a D&D campaign that had its first one over a month ago. Tom Petty was right, the waiting is the hardest part. Anyway, while I pretend that I’m a magical music-man, you can read about all the games that people wanted to talk extra about.
